Thank Goodness for Brooklin!

Our neighbours just had a baby a few weeks...has it been months!...ago now. We're luck because the 2 little ones they already have are the same age as our kids, 5 and 3 years old.

Yesterday we were doing a little bit of spring cleaning (trust me this is not something that we typically do!)...and found in our bathroom cupboard an unopened package of diapers. Sabrina, our youngest has been potty trained for a year now, and we never got around to this package and we're not sure what to do with it.

I voiced this when we saw it and my son, he's almost six, said "Don't worry mom. We can use them when our baby comes". I stopped, backed up and said, "What?". He replied, "You know Anthony and Natassia next door just got a baby, so when our baby comes, we can just use those diapers for her". Okay, I want to hear a collective "aaaawwww" now! :)

I had to break it to my poor little one that we won't be getting a new baby. It's just mom, dad, brother, sister and the dog. He thought of it for a while again and thoughtfully said "Oh, and don't forget Brooklin" - our fish. Quick recovery!

One Big Community!

So it's post-BabyTime! now...the baby show that is! I think I slept all day on Monday! My apologies to any one driving in Brooklin that day!

What a huge number of families came out - it's that 4th time I've 'worked' the show but the number of people there always amazes me. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera so I didn't get a chance to snap a photo of our booth. We had our fantastic new banner (thank you Sherri!) and two wonderful gliders from Dear-Born Baby (thank you Kelly!). At one point, there were two friends lounging in our booth - one nursing her little one and the other resting her 8-month belly - if you read this, pulleeaase, email me the picture we took!

I'm also having fun with our new stats program for the Canadian Babies sites (how nerdy is that!). It's great to see so many companies connecting/linking with our site! That's one of the main goals for CanadianBabies - to directly connect all things baby in Canada...and we're well on our way (and our sites just over 2 months old!). Have a look at this Kindermusik program in Vancouver; one of my favourite blogs; this service offering so much for moms in Toronto; a great new Canadian baby magazine; an adorable online baby store; these parenting classes in Calgary; a wonderful yoga studio in Halifax; a belly casting services in Toronto; and this party store in Edmonton! I LOVE that all this is connected!

Fantastic! Thank you for linking to our site:

my first post!

How exciting! Canadian Babies was created to link all things baby in Canada...and I'm blown away by what there is to offer Canadian familes!

I'm off to set up for the Baby Time! show in Mississauga ... it's going to be a busy weekend!

See you there!
