We celebrated Canada Day the same way we have for the last few years. We go watch the Pierrefonds parade, visit the fair, then return at 10pm to watch the fireworks. I love this family tradition...although, this year the fair seemed a little seedier than usual, and the kids are quickly outgrowing the rides that I am comfortable with them getting on. We may need to tweak this tradition next year, or at the very latest, the year after.
We’re always wondering if we did the right thing having our girls so close together (17 months apart). They bicker often, so, when we catch glimpses of sisterly love, it does us all a bit of good. They were so sweet holding hands on the swings.
I am married to the man who used the pickup line, ‘nice bumblebee slippers’. We live in Montreal with our six-year-old daughter Bryanna, our five-year-old daughter Caitlin, and our three-year-old son Devon. Yes, I did have three kids in the span of three years and three months. Yes, I did then proceed to lose my mind. Yes, I have been searching for it in earnest ever since.
