I Made A New Friend And Everly Finds Everything Hilarious (Vlog 7)

Kids Playing

On today’s vlog I decided last minute to head into Toronto and to visit with some friends while at a live YouTube show – Social Common Live. There I met a new friend, Corrie from The Baby Gang. You might recognize her.

Also, our kids make many cameos and find out what Everly thinks is so hilarious.

Global News – GTA’s Biggest Baby Shower Recap

Recently, I was invited to the greater Toronto area’s (GTA) biggest baby shower, hosted by Global News. We packed up our whole clan last Sunday morning and headed to Shops at Don Mills for an open baby shower for new and expectant moms in the area.

As we arrived, I immediately noticed that despite the heat, moms and mom-to-bes of all stages and sizes of bumps had come for the fantastic free food, sweets, freebies and on site experts there to answer any questions these moms and dads had.

The live show, hosted by Global’s The Morning Show’s Liza Fromer, included some fantastic parenting tips from baby experts such as Parent Tested Parent Approved as well as Parents Canada editor, Janice Biehn.Parent Tested Parent Approved and Liza Fromer

But, the biggest show stopper of all, was a kids, moms and expectant moms fashion show. Not only were some beautiful clothing lines showcased, but the runway models consisted of Global’s own television hosts, news anchors and staff accompanied by their ridiculously adorable children. Here are some highlights from the fashion show…IMG_8413
