Thank you Canadian Family Magazine!

10 May 2010 My 15 minutes

I‘ve been a fan of Canadian Family magazine online for quite a while now, so when the boys were selling magazines to raise funds for their school, I bought a subscription to Canadian Family (and one to Popular Photography, too!)

Whee, that was so much fun! Thanks to Alan Neal and my friends at CBC Radio Ottawa for giving me a chance to talk about my 365 project on All in a Day today! I was having quite the little moment while I was sitting in the anteroom waiting for my turn to go on, […]

I’m trapped in the basement! Vote for me to set me free!!

2 December 2009 How I love the Interwebs

Okay, so the fact that I’m trapped in the basement (they’re installing the laminate over my head as I type) and the fact that I’ve been nominated for Best Family Blog in the Canadian Blog Awards are completely unrelated. And yet, they’re the best segue I’ve got. Save me from the noise (oh my sweet […]

In which she evangelizes the H1N1 shot to Canada’s National Newspaper

29 October 2009 My 15 minutes

I must be getting a little bit blasé about talking to the media these days, because I actually completely forgot to check this morning’s Globe and Mail after one of their journalists interviewed Beloved and I earlier this week until one of my colleagues commented that he’d seen the article.

Tune in to All in a Day on CBC radio today!

13 October 2009 Mothering without a licence

Remember when I mentioned that the producers for All in a Day, CBC radio’s excellent afternoon drive show, were looking for parents to debate when it’s safe to let kids walk to school by themselves?

24 July 2009 How I love the Interwebs

Thanks a million to Lynn of TurtleHead for organizing a fantastic night out last night at Blog Out Loud Ottawa, otherwise known as BOLO. (Or #BOLO, if you’re on Twitter.)
