Boo baby, I see you!
Watch out ghouls, ghosts and witches. We are armed with something better than garlic, potions, smudging, or seance. Sweeter than candy, we’ve got seasonally appropriate baby outfits and luxury gift baskets to hit the spooky spot.
My daughters laughter carrying over from seats 7A and 7B was the perfect beginning to our three day Montreal gateway. Seeing them spend quality time warmed my heart, especially given their busy lives adulting as parents and career gals. The smile on this mama’s face started on that take-off flight and didn’t let-up until the return landing. This was bound to be one epic ‘business’ trip.
Summer in the city and once that humidity hits the pavement 'We The North' can’t wait to hit the cottage. The lake, the air, the chilled out vibe and ... the baby! Worry not, first time moms, preparation will guarantee country bliss. In other words, we’ve got you covered:
Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year - arrived June 21 and marked the true beginning of summer and a farewell to spring. It also has some new moms concerned about changing sleep patterns and sun exposure but as The Beatles famously sang:
“Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say it’s alright, little darling...”.
This Father’s Day we toast all the dads out there - the new ones for all the growing that awaits them alongside their babies, and the established dads for all the giving, teaching, protecting and sustained love they provide. We are so used to speaking openly about the challenges and triumphs of motherhood and so rarely speak of the same from the perspective of fatherhood.
This weekend we hope the conversation widens and relaxes to embrace all the amazing wins of parenting. Here’s to you dads and to your unique, enduring presence in all our lives.
