Listening Skills

Kids have selective hearing. I don't know how many times I've practically had a bullhorn in the kids' faces and can't get their attention... but boy, talk about bat-like hearing whenever I'm saying something that's not as kid-friendly.

Next time I need their attention, I'll just mutter a few swears. Or something about butts.

Good Times Near the Playground

This summer, we're making the rounds to check out all the "must-see" playgrounds in Ottawa. Parks with splash pads, parks with giant climbing structures, and parks with two-storey tube slides have made the list.

I don't know about yours, but my kids always seem to prefer playgrounds with a bike rack on site.

Sometimes they just prefer the bike rack, period. I can't get 'em to move on. Take that, really cool rock-climbing wall and spider-web rope thingy.
