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.

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.
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…
