Have you seen the amazing list of new blogs I have discovered lately.
I can't get myself to go to bed at night.
I know that Dodo totally understands me!
I am looking at all these cool things and freaking out.
This blog for example.

These are on my wish list.

at Christmas

First baby, you go to Espace Urbain and spend fortunes. (Thanks Elias !)
Second baby, you go to Sears for 50$. The results are still great !


My little sunshine has a good appetite.
Down the list we have rice cereal, oatmeal cereal, barley cereal, pumpkin, carrot, green bean, apple.
Tomorrow : banana !

short hair

You know the story.
When you have long hair, you want short hair and when you have short hair, you want long hair.
I know that I am not about the cut mine since I have been growing it for a long time but I still like to dream that I would look that cool...
- took this picture from this very cool blog.


Every time I go to Winners, I swear, I could buy a lamp.
Of course, since we don't need that many AND my husband would not appreciate!
But when they are only 14,99$, you just have to buy it - even when you don't need it !

time for us?

M and I have been super busy with the boys.
We are not complaining since we love them that much.
But every day we wonder when we will have time for us a little bit.
Mom, do you want to babysit soon?

isn't Mater the cutest1

I love the look of Mater.
I have always had something with a gap between the teeth!

This is one of the many cars that Mateo has received lately.
M has found a little trick to get Mateo to poop. (Everytime, he poops, he gets a toy!)
We are up to 100$ already!
Yep !
But it's working...
Free trains are on the way from Nana's house.  That will help...


got a big cold again.
have been in the house for the last 4 days.
i can't say that I have missed going out that much.
it was fun to do a bit of cocooning.
happy that Luca nor Mateo caught it -despite the many kisses...
hope to feel better soon though...

makes me think


coveting this new smell.
not sure if I like it yet.
will have to try it again.
it is so hard to find a new smell.
i have been dreaming to go to Holt Renfrew for the last weeks.
maybe i'll squeeze it in this week.

Pink Tartan

I never buy really expensive clothes but one day in my life, I would like to splurge on an expensive really cool outfit like this one by Pink Tartan.
But where would I go dressed like that!? :)

i miss watching movies

In my single years, I used to watch a lot of movies with Jojo.
When Oscars night came we had seen them all.
I think we even dressed up on year to wath them...did we?!!

This year, I have seen two of the movies being nominated.
I saw The Kids Are All Right last week in bed in front of my computer (thanks Elias !) and I so loved it.
And I saw Incendies last Sunday with my hubby and I keep thinking about it.
I cried a lot. 
That's what happens when you see movies with mothers and their children. 
I also thought of Elias who had been through those crazy times in Lebanon and I also thought of my brother who is in Afghanistan.

Jojo, Elias and Luc - could we watch Oscar night together if you are free on Feb 27th?
In the meantime, I'll try to see a few more...
