The real reason Netflix profiles exist…

Cheaters are all among us. As much as we'd like to think that cheating never happens, we are kidding ourselves if we think otherwise. Let's be honest. We all do it. Ha! Boardgames, diets, favourite places to eat, we all do it. And don't try to argue any different, because guaranteed you have at some point in your life. Before you get mad at me, or wonder when exactly I lost my ever-loving mind, … [Read more...]

Look away, look away – this show is too unpleasant to bear 

Of all of the books made into shows that people have been looking forward to, 'A series of Unfortunate Events' is one that everyone around me has been eagerly looking forward to. Having never read the books as a kid (or, for that matter, an adult), I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I am, however, a fan of Neil Patrick Harris, so knew I would be giving it a try.  Q, however, had seen the … [Read more...]

Inside the mind of my 8 yr old

I've been seeing one of those cute "ask your kids" questionnaires floating around on Facebook over the past few weeks. Basically, the premise is that you ask your child a series of questions, and then record their answers exactly as they say, without any prompting. I had wanted to do it with Q, but wasn't sure just how receptive he'd be. Plus, I was lazy and just hadn't gotten around to trying, … [Read more...]

My amazing, spectacular Christmas vacation – Q’s views

My Christmas holidays were awesome. First, me and my Dad went sledding at the Rotary Stadium hill. I crashed twice but it was fun. My sled got wrecked because it got a hole in it. Dad went sledding too, on my sled. It was cold and there was lots of snow. The hill was steep and I was tired from climbing up. I was glad I went.  The next day me, Mom and Lola went to Fantastic beasts and Where … [Read more...]

Holiday Gift Guide for gamers of all ages

Welcome to the One Crazy Kid Holiday Gift Guide!  This is our second gift guide, and one near and dear to my heart, as we are a family of gamers. The family who games together, stays together and all that, right? We all game on different platforms, which is kind of neat because then we get exposed to different kinds of games. My husband and son are both PS4 and tablet gamers, and my son … [Read more...]

Gilmore Girls – like coming home to an old friend

It's confession time. I hadn't watched a single episode of Gilmore Girls until earlier this year. Even worse, the first episode annoyed the snot out of me when I did try to watch the show. Young Rory was so weird and whiny and I couldn't stand her. I even asked on my FB page whether or not it was worth it to try and push through, to see if I'd be hooked in an episode or two. Everyone said to keep … [Read more...]

Holiday gifts for creative types

Welcome to the One Crazy Kid Holiday Gift Guide! It's that time of year, and if you are anything like me, your thoughts have turned to finding the "perfect" (what does that really mean, anyways?) gift for the important people in your life. I am really bad for putting pressure on myself to find the right gift for people and then inevitably end up debating on them for so long that I one day wake … [Read more...]

Jazz Loves Disney and so do we! 

This is a sponsored post from Disney Music and One2One Network. All opinions are my own.  The music and movies of Disney have been a part of my life for pretty much as long as I remember. My mom likes to tell the story of how I listened to the record of The Rescuers so many times that I knew the entire thing by heart. As a teenager, I loved The Little Mermaid so much that it was a part of … [Read more...]
