Like they always say... all good things must come to an end. School years included! There are many loose ends to tie up before I feel that my family can fully embrace the true feeling of summer freedom.

Welcome to Kiddies Korner! This is a new blog series that I wanted to begin in order to engage you and your children in all of the amazing things you can get up to together. These posts are going to look at games, activities, ideas, places to visit and much more that you can do with your kids, or kids, you can do by yourself. My kids and I love playing games and spending as much quality time as possible together, and so I thought it would be nice to share some of the things that we do out in the country.

As I wrote last month, my family's schedule is very full, which sometimes makes me wonder if we are trying to do too much. 

But, instead of giving up the things we love, my family has created ways to adapt. One of the biggest lifestyle adaptations that we have adopted revolves around one simple word: PREPARATION.

As we enter cottage season, it's time to start getting the kids clothes organized for the warmer days ahead. Each year the kids seem to have grown so much that they are in need of a few new outfits for the cottage. Even though I love going shopping with the kids, it is sometimes difficult to find comfortable cottage wear that will withstand the wrath of a 5-year-old little boy who loves to play in the mud! As with all my shopping, I like to look online to get an idea of what is curently in season, and then, if time allows, take the kids to the mall to test out sizes.

I say this with complete sincerity, not to take away from the important role of the father, don’t get me wrong I understand the importance in anyone’s life of having a supportive and caring father, I would never suggest anything different.

How glorious would life be if every morning felt like a weekend? Waking up on any given weekday without the immediate rush of anxiety as you run through the urgent list of all that needs to be accomplished in the day. The type of morning where you actually notice the sun shining through the windows, and not the dreaded panic when you look down and notice you have spilled coffee on your blouse and you forgot your son’s lunchbox in the fridge.

Today is Earth Day, and one of the days of the year that the Baeumler Family takes seriously. Bryan and I try our very best to take part in this every year with the kids, and this year is no different. But we need some help!

​Saturday mornings are sacred in my household, I always miss them when Bryan and I have to work or we have to be somewhere in the morning. When we have a free Saturday morning, the whole household wakes up slowly, it's not necessarily a late morning for the family, but it takes us a while to go from our beds to the land of the living.

Something that gets me through the long days on set or at the office is the thought of sitting down in my favourite chair at home with a glass of wine. A place to lounge out after a day of hard work is essential to most of us. Be it a man cave, an armchair next to the fireplace or your spot on the sofa in front of the TV, we all need a little place to veg out.

When Bryan and I were designing our current home on House of Bryan 3, we were conscious of making a home for all the family. This will probably be the home that we live in through all of our children’s upbringing and beyond, so we wanted it to be a place where they could learn, develop and most of all, play.
