Baby therapy




A few weeks ago, I read an article about an amazing Canadian program called 'Roots of Empathy'Have you ever heard of it ?

The idea is incredible : how to teach kindness and respect to children through being exposed to a baby and his parent in their classroom ? The infant becomes the 'teacher' and helps children reflect and identify on their own feelings and those of others.
The program has proven to have extremely positive effects on kids behavior (sharing, helping...) and it has also helped decrease aggression.

Amazing isn't it ?

More about it here

Dear blog...



I am sorry...

I've kind of let you down recently and I haven't been giving you any enough attention.
So I'll take the blame, I don't have any valid excuse apart from the fact that things got really really crazy at work and I've found myself completely overwhelmed, so no time for blogging or even reading/commenting on others blogs... breftu connais la musique

But I'll promise things will get back to normal soon (yes, I know, I've said that before but this time I really mean it)

I have a ton of catching up to do with all my favorites blogs so friends, I'll be stopping by and commenting on all the good posts I've missed

Day dreaming...Summer dresses




Oh Summer !! even though I'm buried under a ton of snow right now, I cannot wait to see you... and those gorgeous outfits by Jil Sander are just making the wait even harder...
A few more months to go before trading my warm layers for light and breezy maxi skirts and dresses, can't wait !
How about you my dears ?

The snowy day



There was a huge snow storm today in Boston, my office and daycare got shut down, so we all stayed in and watched the snow falling... It was so beautiful and so peaceful this morning, we loved it.
We made some yummy food with the boys, V made a delicious pot roast (do you guys have a slow cooker ? one of our best investment ever I have to say, you just throw some veggies and meat in the morning, let it cook all day and voilĂ ! a mean dinner without any effort) and little O and I made a little yogurt cake together.
We'll be back to our routine tomorrow, but I'm looking forward to this weekend, hopefully we can work on some cool snowman with the little guy...

Photographer mittens


This winter, my friend Beth has been looking for mittens she can use her iPhone with (especially for the texting part) and I think that these photographer mittens would totally work for her (although I'm not sure there's a way to get your index back into the glove...)
What do you think ? Do you have the same problem with your iPhone ?

Back...

Well hello there ! I'm back... finally !!

I hope you all had a wonderful Xmas and New Year !I've missed blogging and all my blogger friends so it feels really good to be back.

Our trip to France was great although it took us 36 hours to get there (yes 36 hours) thanks to the crazy mess happening at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.
We ended up having to spend the Xmas night stuck there after all our connection flights got cancelled.
That was definitely a big low during our trip even though thankfully little O is too young to care about Xmas or Santa so we avoided an early childhood trauma and we all just pretended Xmas night was on the 25th this year !
Oh well, we made it home and that's all what matters really... we just spent the rest of the week eating and drinking to recover from our trip !

Last week was my first week back at work and it was purely insane with a big sales meeting and presentations all day everyday. So as much as I wanted to post something I just had no energy left at all in the evening.

But anyway, now things have calmed down (just a little) and I should be able to get back to more regular posting. I'm planning on 3-4 times a week for January as things will still be pretty busy around here.

I'm so glad to be back, I'll catch up with all your cool posts that I've missed over the next few days.
Sending you all a big hug xx
