In Your Light

We recently purchased Gotye's album "Making Mirrors" and M. is OBSESSED with "Somebody That I Used To Know." She asks me to play it every morning and afternoon when I drop her off and pick her up from the dayhome. It is, admittedly, a great song but my favourite track from the album is "In Your Light." It's one of those songs that just makes me want to dance.

Have a great weekend!

Mom, You're Great

Mother's Day is right around the corner and, if you are like me and prefer to shop online for beautiful, one-of-a-kind gifts, you need to get on it. I've compiled a list of gifts (all under $50!) that I, as a mom, would be over the moon to receive from my daughter. There's something for the art appreciator, the tea drinker, the jewelry collector, and the messy purse owner. You will also find a gift for the stressed out mom, the mom who adores baths, and the mom who is making the switch to an iPhone. Happy shopping!

Do you have a gift all picked out for your mom?

In Memoriam

My dad's funeral was one week ago and I guess I can say things are getting better. I'm able to talk about him most days without crying but it stills breaks (and warms) my heart to see M. go to bed every night clutching the program from the service. She carries it around with her and talks to Afi on her Dora cellphone. Clearly she understands that something is different, she just isn't quite sure what.

My step-sister, Shandie, put together a really lovely slideshow and I wanted to share it here.
