How I Turned Grocery Shopping Into A Daddy Vacation : The Grocery Game Challenge 2017 #3 July 17-23

WHEN GROCERY SHOPPING BECOMES THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR DAY.   Parenthood is more than just having a baby, it’s about finding ways to keep sane in a busy world of dirty nappies, feedings, work and lack of sleep. Things have changed as they should since we’ve become parents especially for myself since our son wants to do everything with me. If you could imagine me coming home from work and attacked by a toddler while Mrs. CBB waves and says, “have fun” that’s how it all goes down. At times he’s like a television that has no off button but I appreciate his inclination to learn and talk non-stop from the time he wakes up until he falls asleep again. It hasn’t been until the last year or so that we are really feeling the push from dealing with the terrible two’s. I read a meme that stated how parents who go grocery shopping alone attribute the experience to a vacation. Mrs. CBB laughed because some of the other moms she chats with has said the same thing. I wanted to see if I got that same vacation feeling so I put myself up for the daddy vacation challenge. When […]

3 Grocery Games I Play With Our Son While Shopping : The Grocery Game Challenge 2017 #5 Mar 27-Apr 2

GROCERY SHOPPING WITH YOUR TODDLER CAN EASILY BECOME A REWARDING LIFE SKILL FOR THEM.   Parents who bring their kids grocery shopping know how important it is to keep them occupied.The last thing any parent wants is to have their children throw tantrums at the grocery store. It only prolongs the grocery shop and adds stress to what could be a fun shopping trip of grocery games. Growing up my siblings and I would goof off at the grocery store and not give much notice to the food that surrounded us. In essence we kept each other busy which seems like a parenting win although my parents missed a valuable opportunity to educate us about where we were, what we were doing there and why it was important. Missed opportunity means- you can’t get the time back but you can certainly get back into the game when needed. It was too late for us kids as we eventually stayed home and played while our parents went grocery shopping. As I got older I found grocery shopping to be relaxing and fun for me because it puts me in a happy place. I love to cook and to me food really […]

Child breaks the food rules of daycare: PF Weekly grab a brew #62

THERE ARE NO WARNINGS   Rules are rules and they are put in place for a reason. We have rules at work to follow and many have strict provisions due to health and safety reasons. When I read this article about a 2-year-old child that was suspended for 3 days from daycare for bringing in a cheese sandwich I knew it would cause online chaos. The child broke the rules and according to the daycare policy would be suspended. It is what it is. The Ottawa daycare says that parents sign a policy when they sign up at the daycare and it’s posted in French in regards to the policy on the front doors. Chaos in commenting was right because plenty of parents and those without kids had something to say about this suspension. I’m sure many more parents will chime in because it is a topic of concern and it should be.   Follow the rules   So, the rules of the daycare state “no outside food” is allowed inside the daycare. Best of it is, if your child brings in any food containing peanuts they will be expelled. Strict, you bet. The daycare provides everything needed for the […]
