My 1st Single Mother's Day

Today I celebrated my fifth Mother's Day. Today also marks my first Single Mother's Day. This is the first Mother's Day I woke up without my daughter under the same roof. And this is the first Mother's Day Hannah truly understood.

Ratings and Reviews (and more!) on P&G Everyday Canada #PGmom

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.

I've been a P&Gmom since November 2012. One of the best parts of participating in this program is getting to try new products and sharing my thoughts with you, here on my blog and via my social media accounts. (Full disclosure, there's still plenty of P&G products I buy to try on my own - especially the beauty ones!)

Have you ever wanted to share your thoughts on P&G products? Are you obsessed with the scent of Gain? Thankful that Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser is magic on child's artwork on the wall? If so, you need to visit https://www.pgeveryday.ca - where Canadians can share their thoughts about P&G products!

Treat your feet with Footlogix Medical! #diabeticfeet #diabetesfeet

The first thing my kid does when she gets home from preschool is kick of her winter boots and take her socks off, exposing her cute, precious feet.

I follow shortly thereafter. I do not take proper care of my feet, thus they are neither cute nor precious. During the year, if the temperature is warm enough, I wear my dress shoes sans socks. I’ve never had a pedicure (I don’t like people touching my feet). I’ve never done the “Vaseline in the sock” trick – mostly because it sounds so messy, not because I don’t need help. Every winter I end up with dry, cracked heels. Gross to look at and itchy as well.

So when I heard about when I heard about Footlogix Medical Intensive Moisturizing Mousse, I knew I needed to give it a try. Footlogix Medical® is a mousse, so it's easy to apply – it's not greasy and absorbs very quickly. You don't have to sit around waiting; you can just apply and go (or in my case, apply and go to sleep). I actually feel it soothing my feet, especially after a long day of walking and wearing thick winter socks.

LEGO Friends fun with Netlfix Canada! #StreamTeam

As Hannah gets older, more and more some things are deemed for "babies" and newer items for "big kids" become, what she considers, age appropriate.

Enter LEGO. While she was happy as a clam to play with Duplo until recently, when she discovered the Disney LEGO and LEGO friends it was game over - for me. Her first foray was an Ariel set she found while pacing the toy aisles at Walmart. The second set was courtesy of Netflix Canada, celebrating March Break and the launch of LEGO Friends: The Power of Friendship on March 4th.

Create and explore in the #digiPlaySpace

My first TIFF encounter included Adam Sandler and one of my best friends in 2002. I was in university at the time, and he had a movie screening near Yonge and Bloor. I’ll never forget the look of excitement and happiness on my friend’s face after she got his autograph.

Recently, Hannah and I got to check out the digiPlaySpace – and let me tell you, her excitement and happiness matched or perhaps even exceeded my friend’s when she was able to explore and create.
