Hello my fellow mama’s! My name is Helen, and I am a Mom of two beautiful children. My first baby, a son – Maxton, born on August 24, 2011. After 22 hours of labour, an emergency c-section, and an 11 pound baby (yes, 11 pounds) I began baby-stepping my way through motherhood.

On July 30, 2013, my second child came into the world –  a daughter, Everly. She was born 9lbs 1oz, and was a scheduled c-section.


I never thought being a mom would be so challenging, in a good way. I would like to consider myself well-educated, with a Honours BA in Criminology & Policy Studies and a minor in Accounting. Ironically, a degree is a prerequisite for earning $50,000 + a year, but we require no formal education/training to raise human beings.  That thought was the inspiration for the title of my blog.

I decided to start this blog for two reasons: 1. I love the book/movie Julie & Julia, and always thought it would be fun to have a blog (up until my son was born I felt like I didn`t have anything exciting to blog about); and 2. Mom’s always have something great to say.

So whether this makes you laugh, cry, or fall asleep, enjoy and happy reading!
