We Are Finally Done Moving!

Moving With Kids

That honestly felt like the longest move ever. Most likely because it was. We got possession of our new house on the 15th and didn’t have to be out of our old place until the end of the month. With so much going on we decided to just go slow and steady. Can’t really say if I think that was the best idea or not. It seemed to be good for us at the time and honestly don’t know if we would have had a weekend to do all the moving in one go, but it really did seem to be a looonngggg haul.

I got a lot of great moving tips on this Instagram post. Always appreciate your comments!

Yesterday I met with our landlords and we passed the keys back over. Phew! Done. I walked the house with Sophie and doubled checked each room. As we were heading back to our van she stopped in our driveway and said, “But this is our house mom? Why are they still in it?” I explained to her as well as I could about how we needed to move and I do think she understood most of it.

I was curious about how the move would go with the kids. They did so well when we moved last year, that I wasn’t too worried about it. So far this past week and a bit that we have been at our new place, it has been great! Even though the house is a bit smaller, it feels like there is so much more space (could be because half our stuff is still in boxes though, hmm).

Not only are the kids taking the move really well, I am personally feeling so good about it. I didn’t love the other place that we were in. I tried really hard to be grateful for it and felt like near the end before we found out that we had to move that I was accepting it. Since moving though, I just feel so much better here. It is hard to explain but I have told people it just breathes better.

The lighting is better (something I complained a lot about at the last house) and the yard space is so great for the kids. I am so excited for the memories that we will make here. I am excited to arrange and decorate the rooms, but first to paint the walls white… as soon as my husband jumps on board with the idea. Oh and unpack… here we go.

  • Just about to head to Whistler with this guy and so excited to spend some time just the two of us! It’s been a whhhiiilllleeeeeee
  • Part way through our lunch the kids started to bicker back and forth, creating a rather not-so-enjoyable moment for everyone. It's those moments that us as parents can make a difference, how we handle situations with our children allows them to learn and grow through our words and actions. We spoke about the importance of being kind and how much more enjoyable our time together is when we are all speaking respectfully and sharing. .

I then shared with the kids that that was exactly why I was taking a few pictures with our pizza, to share with others about the launch of @panago_pizza's 2nd annual Bullying Awareness and Prevention campaign. That Panago wanted to celebrate young people who are being kind and looking out for others in their communities. Our kids are learning everyday, it's our job to be great role models, encourage their kind behaviour and then celebrate them in their good choices. .

Do you want to take a minute to celebrate a child in your life? From now until Nov 25th Panago is asking for you to nominate a deserving youth and share a story them using compassion to drive change. Go to my stories for more info and the link to nominate #sponsored #asliceofnice
  • Hey 👋🏻 it’s kinda late... for some I suppose.. I’m usually up til midnight working away and wanted to hop on and share about my blog/small business journey. It was the start of this year that I really “proclaimed” this as my business and really felt so proud of what I’d created. It’s been A LOT of work to say the least but it’s brought so so much joy, opportunities and relationships. I love creating and sharing here, but most of all I love encouraging and connecting with YOU! Thanks for being here and for reading this. I think today I all the sudden realized we were in November and the end of the year is near. How did that happen?! If you made it through this little love note, share something about you below.. maybe how you discovered my blog/Instagram or what a goal is that you have? Excited to read through those comments in the AM.
  • That day we found a marble staircase and @juliechristinephotography made a fart joke. She gets me.
  • Proud mama moment. Sophie came home from kindergarten one afternoon reciting this Remembrance Day poem over and over. It’s pretty cute! Turn your sound on and listen too 😊❤️
  • This picture makes me melt. I set the camera on self-timer and wanted to get some action shots of the three of us working on the "do try this at home" section of the @guinnessworldrecords book. When I looked back at the captures and I saw Ezras very content grin, I just couldn't even. Seriously no words. It reminded me that our kids don't care how we show up (myself pictured with a messy bun & PJs), it's the time we put in that is remembered. •

#ad Thanks to @guinnessworldrecords for encouraging us to attempt one of their 5 maker challenges and seeing how much fun the kids had blowing up balloons and learning to make balloon dogs. After a few tries I completed on in 2 minutes, might not be the fastest time in the books, but we saw some good progress from my first attempt ha! If your kids love creating, reading about all sorts of random and crazy accomplishments then head to the blog and check out what's new in the Guinness World Records 2019 edition. #GWR2019
