Learning as we go

by Brie and Lara

The Ottawa we knew before kids is a very different one than the city we live in now. Before, we were up to date on the latest restaurant openings, movie showings and art exhibits. Now all we want to know is which restaurants have the best kids meals, where the play groups are and which park has a splash pad. The city has stayed the same but all of a sudden the hidden world of children’s Ottawa has become visible to us.

We have had to learn as we go. As the kids have grown we have searched out and discovered new activities and attractions around the city. We are always looking for something to do that will amuse the kids. And ourselves.

While we continue to find excitement around the city, we are also eager to learn of fun things we can do at home. Baking, cooking, reading, crafting and creating are all great ways to pass the time with kids. Ideas are a valuable commodity around our houses.

If you are on this crazy parenting journey too, come along with us as we share the things we like to see and do.

Brie is mom to 3.5 year old daughter “the girl” and eighteen month old son “the boy”. She blogs at Capital Mom.

Lara is the mom to 3.5 year old Kiernan and 10 month old twins Quinn and Juliette. You can read her blog at Gliding Through Motherhood.

  1. Just sent a link to the blog to a bunch of my Ottawa friends.

    You should think of creating a Facebook fan page, too. That might help spread the word to more people. I think this blog would be of interest to people who don’t normally read blogs.

    If I lived in Ottawa still, I’d love to contribute. As it is, I’ll be cheering you on from the sidelines. 🙂

    • We will definitely be creating a facebook group. I agree, even non-blog readers could find this blog content interesting – at least that’s what we’re hoping! 🙂

  2. Hey, what fun this is! Can’t wait to see more!!
