The last two years have been heavy for a lot of people, in a lot of different ways. They have taught us about patience, loss, grief, gratitude and everything in between. The past year has done the same for me, but for very different reasons.Continue reading
First off, when I had hit “Publish” on the last article “Hiatus from Life, and Return”, I thought to myself, “Yea, no one’s gonna read that”.
Not only did I genuinely believe that, but the thought also made it easier to put the truth bombs I was dropping out into the world. Y’all clearly proved me wrong, I was not expecting the outpouring of genuine support and love I have received in the last week. It has made my heart warmer and my writing hand stronger 😊.

Week two of quarantine/social distancing begins today. And I am here you to help you become the best version of yourself while stuck in your anthill. You’re welcome.

What’s your favourite childhood memory?
Is it a routine thing you did with a parent? Is it an annual family tradition? Or a specific moment in time? Is it the noise of the first pretend concert you did for your parents in the living room? Or the quiet of being in your mom’s arms on a sick day? Is it the day you first met your sibling in a hospital room? Or is it weekly dinners at grandma’s house? It is a big moment, a celebration, a vacation? Or is it a small, tiny, inconsequential one?
So I have not been sharing all the articles I’ve been doing for CBC, but I think this one’s a good one for parents to read!
“How We Plan on Raising a Money-Smart Child”
