Ever wonder what the difference is between French Immersion and the francophone school board in Halifax? And who really qualifies for each program? I have all of the answers to your questions here.
Ever consider participating in one of those research studies for kids at the Early Social Development Lab but hesitated because you weren’t sure what it was REALLY all about?
I’ve got the scoop on everything you could ever want to know about how it works, the commitment required, privacy questions, and if they REALLY hook your kid up to machines (spoiler alert, NO!!! 😂😂😂). Also another spoiler alert, my kids always have a wonderful time and walk away with a fun prize.
We’re growing up. It’s our four year blog-iversary next month and our blog name is changing to reflect our new stage of life. Read on for more details…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year . . . for name nerds anyway. Vital Stats released the top baby names of the year in Nova Scotia and I’ve analysed the data in a completely unscientific manner and determined that it seems in order to give your child a unique name at school you should choose one of these most popular names.

Christmas and baking go together like Santa and his elves. When you have kids you want to include them in the process and there are safe and fun ways to do so from a young age. I’m sharing three family-friendly recipes (and suggested parts that kids of all ages can help with) to kick off your holiday baking binge this year!
Every year we send a Nova Scotia tree to Boston to show our appreciation for their help during the Halifax Explosion. We have the full 2018 schedule from the tree cutting to the tree lighting here for you.
Part of the magic of the holiday season is that moment when your family is perched shivering on a curb, waiting eagerly for Santa to go by on his float, and then finally seeing that sleigh and red suited man coming into view! Luckily in the Halifax region we have several chances to make that magic happen for your family.
This fall has seen several new playgrounds popping up around the city. I swung by one that recently opened in Clayton Park West last month and have all the details and photos of this new structure.
This wasn’t the playground we’d planned to go but it ended up being a fun little surprise adventure for us and this playground, while having stood the test of time and clearly well-loved, was still in great shape with lots of fun elements for the kids to enjoy.
This was definitely the most talked about playground of Summer 2018 in Halifax. I finally made it to visit it this fall and have all the details and lots of pictures to show you Halifax’s newest natural playground.
