When Childhood Dreams Come True

When I was little, I used to dream about what kind of Mom I would some day like to be. I used to dream about building forts, climbing trees, scrambling up riverbeds and inventing make-believe worlds. I would someday invite my child(ren) to participate in my "worlds," scamper over rocks, balance on logs, and get good and muddy--of course. In the meantime, my younger siblings were all too willing to play roles in the "world of Bronwyn" and to be accomplices in the production of much dirty laundry. (Sorry, Mom.)

Make a Valentine snow cave

heartsnowcavefrontThis weekend Toronto has been a winter wonderland. Though I live in Canada, we have not been very lucky when it comes to fun winter weather. It was fantastic to have so much snow this weekend and watch people have so much fun skiing, skating, sledding and I even saw quite a few smiling faces shoveling driveways.

Valentine Picnic ideas

Dress the youngster s warmly; grab the summer picnic blanket, your favorite Valentine picnic treats and head out to have an afternoon of winter fun. It is no snow at Toronto at the moment so I think it safe to say that we will be skating for our outdoor valentine picnic this year in our community ice rink close to our house if the winter will stay in Toronto.

Give a heart to the birds

It is a traditional belief or story that on Valentine’s Day the birds find their mates. They have to hook up early in the year to make sure the children will be strong before the fall arrives.

What better Valentine gift can we give our bird friends than to give them some extra energy this winter? Make some suet cakes for your birds. You will attract western bluebirds, chickadees, jays, towhees, warblers, woodpeckers and more to your backyard.

Caesar salad

One of our favorite family restaurants also serves Caesar salad, and to my surprise my daughter now adores their version. She has been asking me for some time to teach her how to make a Caesar salad at home. So, this is our kid friendly version of Caesar salad.
