My mother taking my older brother and me to Disney World. I recall refusing to be in photos with my brother. Looking through the albums now, there are two of almost every photo; one of brother, and one of myself, separately! I also remember meeting my childhood hero, Ariel from The Little Mermaid, on this trip and getting her autograph. This was a very important moment of my childhood!
Being able to help parents during one of the most important times in their lives, and of course the staff! Although I do not have any children myself (besides my cat Lohan), I can understand the challenges faced especially during the first year or for a new mom, because of my two nephews Jesse and Ryan. I am the newbie of the NMCO team, and am looking forward to playing a supportive role during both the pregnancy and when the baby is born – it is an honour!
Saturday is usually for errands, and spending some quality time with my lovely boyfriend Steven. I also take advantage of having the time to try new gluten free recipes, and Steven is the judge. During the summer we enjoy spending time outdoors, but hibernate during the cold winter months.
After making sure everyone in my family is financially set for life, I would most likely buy a house… and take a luxury vacation… and buy a new car… maybe a vacation home… maybe a few vacation homes… okay, I am getting carried away!!
Poutine is definitely number one on the list (priorities), my boyfriend Steven comes in at a close second, and my cat.
I took a picture of one of my paintings.
I would like to meet Ellen Degeneres, she seems like a fun person!
I love reading! I spend about an hour a day reading, usually before bed. I love the author Liane Moriarty, and am excited one of her books is being turned into a TV show.
Right now it’s Fire and the Flood by Vance Joy
After completing an art project, I love to see the reactions of the people that purchase or are gifted a piece I created. It is extremely rewarding when someone loves my artwork, something I am so passionate about.
Art! I do mostly pyrography and watercolour, and since a lot of my friends are now having babies most of my work tends to be for nurseries. I also enjoy burning and painting Mandalas. I have recently become more accustomed to digital art, after being gifted a digital drawing tablet. It is always fun to try a new type of art, and find new ways to express myself through what I create.
When I was in elementary school I was absolutely certain that when I grew up, I would work as a cashier at Longo’s. This was what I told everyone I wanted to do, and I was very adamant about it. Teacher, I don’t need to take that aptitude test, I have it all figured out!
I love the summer. I love being able to sit outside and soak up the sun with good company, or a good book. Although, I do enjoy waking up to find a fresh coat of snow… but will enjoy the view from indoors where it is warm.
If I’m at Tim’s I will get a double double, and at Starbucks I order a caramel macchiato!
I truthfully have not done much travelling except for business related trips. I am content anywhere hotwith palm trees and a beach… and perhaps a strawberry daiquiri in hand. I will be visiting Croatia with my boyfriend Steven to see his family. From what I have seen, it looks absolutely stunning.
When Maria called me to inform me of some recent night nurse details, she first asked how breast feeding was going and I mentioned how painful it was for me. Immediately, she suggested their lactation consultant Mary, and within 30 minutes she had Mary scheduled to come over to my home in less than 24 hours. I was very emotionally raw at that point, and in a lot of pain from the labour, so it was such a comfort to a) not have to contact someone myself but rather have Maria take the reigns and look after everything. All I had to do was be home the next day for Mary’s visit.
I would highly recommend Mary, and the New Mommy Company. The quality of customer service we received was outstanding. With minimal family and this being our first child, my husband and I had such a sense of relief and comfort with the help of Mary and a Night Nanny. It’s been a privileged working with both of them.
