The 3-year-old drew this picture today. He tells me it's Owlette from PJ Masks. The likeness is uncanny. I think I have a prodigy on my hands.

Despite my best efforts, my oldest never took to baseball. I knew I was in trouble during the pennant race of 2015 when he chose to watch a preseason Leafs game over a Jays game against the Yankees. He just doesn't love baseball the way I do. In his 15
My oldest daughter turned 13 today. She wanted to start the day before dawn with a short ride to the waterfront to watch the sun rise. We got up at 5:30 am and watched the sun come up. It was spectacular, and I took some great pics. Here's a
Here's a fun fact that gets less fun the more you think about it. Last night, I attended the very first concert at Budweiser Stage. That's pretty cool until you realize it's the same ol' amphitheatre you've been to dozens of time with fresh paint and a new name. I
My daughter is a typical teenager, only she doesn't turn thirteen for another three months. She had been urging me to watch 13 Reasons Why on Netflix because she wanted to talk about it. I had my marching orders, so I dove in. Initially, I treated the task as if
You don't normally consider your local billiard hall when thinking about brunch, but I was intrigued by the Sunday morning bluegrass brunch I saw promoted at NTB Lakeshore.

With great interest I read this CBC article about the fact many Canadians diagnosed with asthma don't in fact have it. This was my experience with my firstborn. Weeks before his second birthday, my oldest ended up in the hospital with pneumonia. I spent five nights sleeping on that cot
On Tuesday night, my oldest won his house league's hockey championship. I enjoyed every second of it from the lonely end of the rink. This morning, a package arrive for my youngest and it included this little doll. I thought I'd snap a pic.
My oldest son went into daycare when he turned one. His mother's parental leave ended, and she went back to work. James started daycare, and I still remember the day I was told how much it costs to put a 12 month old in daycare in this city. It cost
My sweet boy celebrates his second birthday today. He's at an age where he knows there will be cake today, but isn't certain what all the fuss is about. Happy birthday, son! You've come a long way.
Fewer and fewer kids are playing hockey these days. It's a fairly expensive game and there are plenty of other, often safer, options. Neither of my nephews play hockey. It's no longer a surety that a Canadian kid will strap on the skates each week and chase a puck. I
