work-at-home parent

On Friday you may have seen the viral video below of professor Robert Kelly being interviewed live on BBC and his adorable children deciding to join him. I have to admit, I’ve watched it numerous times, but still crack up every time. Partially because I feel his slight embarrassment, although I’ve never been interviewed on BBC. Conference calls and a Huff Post Live segment will do as a close similarity, lol. And also in part, because his wive’s stealth moves are…

Becoming the Fearless Girl You were Born to Be

Fearless Girl

On the eve of International Women’s Day a statue of a girl whose affectionately been dubbed the fearless girl, was erected on Wall Street.

Women for a cause, International Women's Day

USA Today for instance recently published an aricle on the Women of Colour whose Name You Should Know. It includes the name of 30 women, both historic and current that have done great things throughout time. All their wins, whether personal or political, have made it easier…

But most importantly, I saw dreams come alive,…

Happy March!! Boy am I glad to welcome March and hopefully some warmer weather, lol. Although judging by today here in Toronto, it seemed winter was trying to make a point that it’s not ready to leave us just yet. All good, it can’t hold on forever, hehehe.
