How Often Do YOU Have Sex?

Well ladies, I feel like we haven't covered sex in a while, so we're well overdue! Last night after proudly watching my son's hockey practice, I went to dinner with my baby group girlfriends.

Calling out all mothers!! Although, I have to say, even if you're not a mom yet nor even thinking about it (wow, you're smart... just joking!!), this has gotta sound entertaining.

Change… The Only Constant

Hi All, Yesterday was a busy and fun day. Massage was wonderful. Lunch was yummy. Disney on Ice was... well... fun for the kids! The evening didn't end successfully with my two year old barfing all over my bed after coughing for three straight hours. Exhausted this morning! But back to the Blog. Today is a very gloomy day in Montreal, so…
