Skipping through outer space, hopping over planets, rolling into a transformer during ballet practice and having batman scale the outside of barbie’s mansion are only some of the wonderous imaginary adventures my kids take on a daily basis.

Nothing compares to the magic of Disney. Growing up I’d love to sit by the fireplace and watch televised performances of Disney on Ice dreaming of one day attending. It’s the perfect marriage between childhood dreams of princesses and heroes with the magical medium of figure skating. There is nothing like watching your favorite princesses and heroes glide across the ice in a magical performance you’ll be sure to remember.

Financial literacy is an important life skill. Few people are born with the intuit ability to effectively manage money. The rest of us had to learn it.

I shared this post on my Facebook page and with the flood of responses and encouraging emails/texts and phonecalls, I figured I had to blog about it. My husband and I recently took our daughter and a dozen of her friends to the movies. It was a children’s movie matinée.

The lights dimmed and the previews started. We were off to a great start. The kids sat behind us munching on their popcorn, slurping their drinks, eager to see the movie start.
As many of you know, I recently attended Canada’s leading social media conference, Blissdom Canada as a Community Leader. While words cannot do those few days justice, I’d like to share two important ideas I took away from it.
We love to focus on unique Canadian content here at CanadianMomEh.com. Especially those stories that celebrate the awesomeness of Canadian women. This week, our very own Alice Munro was the first Canadian woman ever to win the Nobel Literature Award. We’re proud to present you with our guest writer, Christa Amyot (nee Crawford) who happened to be born in Alice Munro’s hometown. Only, she didn’t know it. This is her story.
I love Fall. It is hands down my favourite season of the year. I love cool evenings, apple picking, but most of all, I love the Fall colours. Every year I try to take a long drive with the family to take in nature’s beauty. This year I did something different.
