Its back to school for everyone and just like all parents myself included I say what a week! Time for us parents to take a break, relax, regroup and reflect on the summer we just had. By the way speaking of summer, “Wasn’t the weather off? Unbelievable mostly everyone I spoke with thought it was just not their cup of tea with all the rain and gloomy weather. Anyway I don’t know if your like me but I love winter–This is when we get to snuggle up in our favourite blankets and feel all warm and fuzzy. The kids seem more relaxed because they just love the snow and it always– I believe give us more time as parents to be with the kids. Things don’t seem all that busy and rushed and life just seem to go at a slower pace. No matter what kind of weather it is I always love to read one of my favourite magazines Style at Home http://www.styleathome.com absolutely beautiful pictures and makes you want to take the pictures out and make everything real. SLICE Is the also one of my favourite channels to watch particularly “The Mom Show” and “Crash Test Mommy.”
Anyway speaking of taking the load off and touching base with other mothers to keep your sanity and peace of mind head over to Parent Source Durham Regions online parent magazine: http://www.parentsource.ca great site about all things parenting as well as resources and a detailed listing of community events within Durham Region like Bowmanville, Ajax, Whitby etc. In addition to parentsource you can also visit this site for great parenting advice at Parent Central http://thestar.blogs.com/anndouglas/ Ann Douglas is a journalist and award-winning author of 28 books, including The Mother of All Pregnancy Books and many others.Planning on a birthday party for your child then Parents Magazine will certainly add some fun and ease to your party planning. http://www.parents.com Plan your childs next big event by either Theme, Birthday Cakes, or Birthday parties.
