Ringing in Our Toddler's Second Year at PAW Patrol Live!

We don’t typically watch a lot of TV in our house, but if you were to ask me the show that does get the most air time, hands down it would be PAW Patrol. Or “Paw ‘Troll” as it is affectionately referred to by Morley.

She asks to watch it every morning when she wakes up and every night before she goes to bed. She eats breakfast in her special PAW Patrol chair and she can spout off every single pup’s name. It’s PAW Patrol all day, every day in our house. 

When we recently discovered that PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure” (presented by Nickelodeon and VStar Entertainment Group) was coming to the Sony Centre in Toronto this March Break, we knew we had to take her.

Attending this action-packed and music-filled production will probably be a highlight of the year. Not only for Morley, but also for mom and dad. We too often find ourself humming along to the catchy theme song, or wondering how the pups are going to solve the most recent problems in Adventure Bay. 

The perfect way to ring in this PAW Patrol-obsessed toddler’s second birthday!

PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure” includes two acts and an intermission, and incorporates an innovative costume approach to help bring the pups to life on stage as well as their vehicles and packs during the adventure. The performance is interactive, engaging audiences to learn pirate catchphrases, dance the pirate boogie and help the pups follow the treasure map and solve picture puzzles during their mission! 

The new live stage show will visit Sony Centre Friday, March 16 through Sunday, March 18, 2018 for six performances total - March 16 at 6pm, March 17 at 10am, 2pm and 6pm and March 18 at 10am and 2pm. 

Tickets for all six performances are on sale now, and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.ca or by phone at 855-872-7669. Ticket prices range from $22.00 to $50.00 per person. There are also a limited number of Gold Circle and V.I.P. (Very Important Pup) packages available, for an additional fee. The V.I.P. package includes premium show seating, a commemorative lanyard and and after-show Meet & Greet with PAW Patrol Live! walk-around characters.

Attending the show? Use code PUP5 for $5 off each ticket (excluding Gold Circle & VIP seats).

Connecting with Animals at the Toronto Zoo

“What's that great connection quote?”, Steve asked as we wandered past the female orang-utan on our most recent visit to the Toronto Zoo. 

“In order to protect something, you must love it. But in order to love something, you must first have a connection with it,” I respond. It really is my favourite quote, and one I fully stand behind.

Toddler looking at panda at the Toronto Zoo

As we passed the ring-tailed lemurs, we started talking about our favourite non-North American animals. “Its a tough one," I said, "But the ring-tailed lemur and red panda are up there for me,” I've always been a fan of the smaller, lesser understood things in life. Plus they’re just so darn cute. “Really?” he asks, surprised at my selection. “Mine would be the lions. Or the giraffes. Definitely elephants." 

He elaborates on his last answer by telling me a story from when he was younger, when elephants still called the Toronto Zoo home and he got to go behind the scenes with to help feed them.

He pauses, as if he took a trip back in time in his mind, remembering the moment and how much fun he had. Remembering the connection he built with the elephants that day.

I interrupted the memory by saying, “See, there’s your connection. That's why you love them, and that's why you care about them."

And that my friends, is why it is one of my all-time favourite quotes.

As animals lovers, building a connection with Morley is extremely important to us. We know she loves dogs, she has her grandparents’ pups “Tity” and “Lolalita” to thank for that. But we want her to appreciate all animals, from big to small and cute to, well, not so cute.

There are many ways to connect kids with animals, which I share in this post here. In Toronto alone, our opportunities are nearly endless - you can visit a conservation area to see native animals in action, the Royal Ontario Museum to see animals from the past, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada if fish are your thing or you can take a trip to the Toronto Zoo if mammals, birds and reptiles are more your style. 

The Toronto Zoo is the perfect place to build that animal connection, and where we spent the recent Family Day.

Lion at the Toronto Zoo

Set in the beautiful Rouge Valley in the east end of the city, the Toronto Zoo first opened its doors in August 1974. The Zoo is made up of 710 acres of land, which is divided into seven zoogeographic regions - Indo-Malaya, Africa, Americas (North & South America), Eurasia Wilds, the Tundra Trek, Australasia and Canadian Domain - and home to over 5,000 animals representing 450 species. Since opening its gates, it has been a leader in saving and protecting species and their habitats, both locally and globally. 

Exactly as we predicted, this trip to the Zoo was much different than our first visit at six months and even our second at 13 months old. At just shy of two years, Morley is now at the age that she notices even the smallest things in front of her and can tell us exactly what animal she's seeing and even what she wants to see next.

Giraffe at the Toronto Zoo

While some of the animals were tucked indoors for the winter, we still had the chance to see the pandas, polar bears, wolves, tigers, lions, cheetahs and more. While we knew we were taking our chances on the weather before we walked through the front gates, it only started raining about half way through our journey. Luckily, we could escape the drizzle by popping in to one of the many animal pavilions to warm up. Indoors, we saw the giraffes, rhino, gorillas, orang-utans and more, which was more like a quick trip to the tropics. 

Naturally, my favourite part of the Zoo is Tundra Trek, home to the wolves, reindeer, snowy owl and polar bears. We stopped by the polar bears just as a Keeper Talk was getting started, so we found a spot amongst the crowd where Morley could watch them stand up on there hind legs, say "oh, big guy" and see them eat the fishy snack they were being tossed. Later she told me she also likes to eat fish like the polar bear, as she shoved a handful of goldfish crackers into her mouth. (I don’t want to be a polar bear pusher, but I think that may be her connection right there.)

Seeing as it was a long weekend, we also got to take a tour of the new, state-of-the-art Wildlife Animal Health Centre. The volunteer-led tours (12:30pm on Saturday and Sundays, leaving from the Tundra Trek Zoomobile Station) allow you to catch a glimpse into the work the Zoo does behind-the-scenes, having access to a viewing gallery featuring the diagnostic imaging, treatment and surgery room and the clinical and endocrinology labs.

Morley loved taking advantage of the activities for kids, including testing her surgery skills in an Operation-style game.

If you ask Morley what she saw at the Toronto Zoo, she will tell you "pole-ah bear, tigers (with a scrunchy face grrrrr), snakes, dragons, a yellow duck and people". I think I may have missed the yellow duck along our travels, but its obvious to tell which animals are quickly becoming her favourites. (She's clearly also a people person.)

Despite the bit of rain, it was the perfect winter day at the Toronto Zoo, and we can't wait to go back!

Oh, and in case you're wondering - our favourite North American animals? For me, it’s the polar bear and for him, it’s the grey wolf. Seeing polar bears in the wild and hanging out with wolf cub pups are the connections to thank for those loves.

What is your favourite animal story? Have you visited a zoo lately? I’d love to hear!

Make the Most Out of Your Winter Family Vacation

*This post is sponsored by Bayer®. To make sure Bayer® products are right for you, always read and follow the label. 

I don't know about you, but this time of the year makes me dream of white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and Pina Coladas. There's some serious wander-lusting going on over here, and sadly, the warmth of the pool at Morley's swimming lessons just isn’t cutting it.

Traveling with your children is an unforgettable experience, no matter where you go. It is the chance to introduce your children to new cultures and environments, and to create memories that will last a lifetime. 

A well-deserved break from school for the kiddos is the perfect time for a family vacation, but make sure you’re prepared before you rush out the door this winter. Don’t waste a minute of your precious family time on common (and avoidable) vacation fails. 

>> You may also like: Traveling to Cuba with Young Children 

Whether you’re hitting the slopes or a water slide, make the most of your time off with these simple winter family vacation tips. 

Prepare yourself for the entire journey.

When heading on vacation, most are looking forward to the destination itself. But remember, before you can lay on that white sandy beach, you must first get there (and sadly, when it’s all over, you must also get home). Whether you are road tripping or flying, don’t forget about the way there and the way back. If you have young children, remember to pack lots of activities, snacks, changes of clothes and other necessities to limit the number of potential meltdowns so you can get there and start enjoying your well-deserved break.

Tag that bag.

There’s nothing worse than arriving to your destination in one piece only to find out your bags have not. You can’t prevent luggage from getting lost or damaged, but you can make the return process much easier. Make sure you purchase luggage tags with a durable covering to protect your information. Look for a strong clasp that can withstand being tossed around from plane to carousel. And if you’re locking your luggage, be sure to use a TSA-approved lock only.

In case of lost luggage, remember to always pack an extra pair of clothes (i.e. sandals, bathing suit, etc.) in your carryon, just in case. The same goes with extra diapers and an extra change of clothes, or two, for your little ones.

If you are travelling with a car seat or stroller, and checking either at the luggage drop or gate-side, take photos of the items beforehand. That way, if there is any damage to the item, these photos can easily be sent to the airline for comparison and compensation. As I can speak from recent experience, it is not a good feeling to put your carseat (and trust) in the airline’s hands, only to have it come our damaged on the other end.

Don’t underestimate the sun.  

Whether you’re in the snow, sand or water, UV rays reach the Earth year-round and surfaces like these can reflect 85 per cent of the sun's rays back at you! To protect your face, try using Coppertone ClearlySheer Lotion for Face (SF50). ClearlySheer sunscreens deliver trusted broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection in a light, refreshing formula that barely leaves a trace on the skin. Water resistant for up to 80 minutes, it absorbs quickly, feels clean and light and won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. This lightweight sunscreen formula feels clean and light, and is also great to use daily under makeup!

If your kids love the water, but are not big fans of standing still for sunscreen, try Coppertone Kids Sunscreen Continuous Spray. This hypo-allergenic sunscreen provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection at the touch of a button, no pumping required. The easy, full coverage application will keep your children protected from harmful UV rays while making sunscreen time fun.

Don’t forget a hat and sunglasses for all family members, including the little ones.

Restore your body’s rhythm.

One of the best parts of vacationing is indulging in delicious foods, but travel might have your digestive tract feeling no bueno! Almost 40 percent of people experience vacation constipation as gut bacteria reacts and adjusts to the change in setting. Bathroom trouble can put a damper on your otherwise relaxing time off. Be prepared and bring along some pre-measured, single-dose RestoraLAX NeatPAX for convenient occasional constipation relief.  RestoraLAX dissolves easily in any non-alcoholic beverage with no taste and no grit.  It helps restore your body’s natural rhythm by working with water to hydrate and soften stools.

What are some of your vacation preparation tricks that ensure your family getaway its nothing short of amazing?  I’d love to hear!

Why I #ChooseScience

If there’s one thing to know about me, it is that I am very passionate about the environment.

Not in an extreme chain yourself to a tree kind of way. More in the practical sense that I strongly believe that everyone is responsible for doing their part to protect our natural world for future generations.

And that is exactly why I choose science.

Mother and daughter at Kincaid Park, Anchorage, Alaska

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a strong affinity to the outdoors. Particularly, the water. Like many, as a young girl I had big dreams of becoming a marine biologist. Movies like Free Willy and The Little Mermaid to thank for that one. Except, unlike many others, I was bound and determined to make it happen.

In university, I focused my studies on marine and freshwater biology, with a dabble into ecosystem restoration. As a naive 20-year-old, I saw myself living this glamorous life on the beach down south, diving with the sharks and protecting our coral reefs. 

But, it was during those years in university that my interests took a bit of a shift. After a research project I did down in the Bahamas made an impact on the local community, I was offered a Master’s position at an Ontario university. But truth is, I didn’t want it. Research just wasn’t for me. My summers were dedicated to educating others about taking care of what Mother Nature has given us. I had found my calling in environment education, and turns out, I was pretty good at it. Educating others about aquatic and terrestrial biology and ecology was more my thing.

It was because of this shift that I quickly abandoned the idea of becoming a marine biologist and instead began focusing my attention on becoming an environmental educator.

And so, that is where I stand today. Working in environmental education, teaching others about our aquatic ecosystems. While I may not have the title or “marine biologist”, I instead the best of both worlds – working in a somewhat aquatic environment and combining numerous streams of science  while doing so, from biology to ecology, chemistry and more. 

I choose science so that I can inspire my future generation to help protect our planet.

Sure it is a passion of mine, but there is also another reason why I continue choosing science every single day. And that my friends, is my daughter.

I want her to grow up in a world similar to ours – where she can snorkel the coral reefs, see a polar bear in the wild and not have to worry about a lack of food or access to safe, clean drinking water.

I choose science so that I can help build that connection between my daughter and the plants and animals that the call this planet home. Because if she doesn’t have a connection with it, she sure as hell isn’t going to want to protect it.

Toddler with American Toad

Why introduce science at such a young age? Truth is, it’s never too early to start.

I’m often asked by parents what advice I can give them to help get kids interested in science? And I have only one bit of advice: get out of their way. Kids are born curious. Period.” - Neil deGrasse Tyson 

Toddlers are natural scientists - they ask (many, many) questions, pick up sticks and bugs outside, aren’t afraid to get dirty and are curious about the world around them. But as they get older, they may gradually lose this interest. Science may become just another thing they learn in school. Of course, this couldn't be further from the truth.

Science is so much more than just looking through a microscope or mixing things together. Teaching children about science from a young age encourages them to ask questions, think critically, experiment, solve problems, and so much more. 

Toddler in Ripley's Aquarium of Canada's Dangerous Lagoon Tunnel

Don’t know much about the science behind, well, science? No worries. Science isn’t so much about answers as it is the journey to find them. Share your curiosity with your child - wonder out loud why something is the way it is, and then take the time to learn about it. Remind your child that they use science every single day. Baking is a lesson in chemistry, building with blocks involves physics, watching a bird fly is biology and asking questions is exactly what leads to scientific breakthroughs. Science is responsible for the clothes we wear, the food we eat, how we get around and many other facets of our daily lives. 

Like myself, an interest in science at a young age can also lead to a career as an adult. However, while studies show that about as many girls as boys have a positive attitude toward science in elementary school, boys are twice as likely to be interested in technology, science, and math by eighth grade. And, the gender bias just doesn’t stop there. According to a study conducted in 14 countries, the probability of female students graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in a science-related field is 18%, compared to 37% for their male peers.

Girls continue to face stereotypes and social and cultural restrictions, limiting access to education and funding for research, preventing them from scientific careers and reaching their full potential. Women remain a minority in science research and decision-making. 

February 11 is International Day of Women and Girls in Science - an opportunity for all to take a stand for girls and women in science. Together, on this day and every day, we can work together to create a world where women and girls design, shape and benefit from the scientific innovations changing our world.

While the decision on what career path she chooses ultimately lies in her hands, I can’t help but try to peak her interest and curiosity in my passions along the way, including choosing science. 

What is your connection to science? I'd love to hear your story!

The 9 Stages of Dinner with a Toddler

Remember back pre-kids when a nice dinner meant sitting around the table, talking about your day with a glass of wine in hand? It was calm, it was quiet and it was relaxing.

Throw a toddler in the mix and dinner is a whole new ball game.

Dinner is no longer a time to relax and catch up on our days. Instead, there’s yelling, there’s complaining, there’s food flying everywhere - it’s rushed, it’s stressful and it sure is messy.

Dinner with a Toddler

Safe to say, dinner time with a toddler is quite the process. Here are the nine stages of dinner time at our house.

Stage 1 starts even before we walk through the front door. It starts as soon as I pick Morley up at daycare and we’re walking home. I hear a little voice coming from the stroller in front of me saying, “Morley want a snack mama”. I know full well 4:30pm is snack time at school, meaning she just ate not long ago, but it’s hard to give in to her cute little face. I pull a snack from the emergency stash in my purse.

When she is done her snack and asks for more, we are about half way home. Distraction is key in this case, keep her occupied until we can get home. Most of the time we talk about the airplanes and buses.

Dinner with a Toddler

We walk through the door. Boots off. Jacket off. Stroller away. Enter stage 2, the mad dash to the fridge. She grabs at the handle and says “Oh heavy! Mama help Morley”, as in, I want in the fridge. Stat. We won’t be eating dinner for at least another hour, so I often give in to a small snack. Usually a yogurt cup, string cheese or handful of goldfish. 

I ask her what she wants for dinner, most of the time just to humour myself with what she says. If it were up to her we would be having pasta and pizza with a side of corn and peas every night.

Dinner with a Toddler

With snack in hand, off to watch Paw ‘Troll she goes. This is my time to start dinner. When the episode of Paw Patrol is nearing an end, she realizes I am not in the living room with her. This is a BIG problem. 

Stage 3 is what I like to refer to as “the cling”. “Mammmmaaaaa, where are yoooouuuu?? What chu doin'?” I hear from the living room. She knows full well where I am. Toddlers can be so passive aggressive sometimes. By this time, I’m in full cook mode, usually standing over the stove. She runs and grabs my legs, not letting go. I tell her over and over again that the stove is hot, she needs to go sit down, but all she sees is me doing something without her.

Dinner with a Toddler

Stage 4 is the job. Give her a job to do so she gets away from the hot stove. Depending on what we are making, it may range from mixing a salad to sprinkling cheese to making dumplings for our soup. She stays focused for all of five point six seconds. 

Stage 5 is impatience. She disappears again, leaving a mess from her job spilled out on the kitchen floor. I get nervous when she gets quiet. I poke my head around the corner into the living room to see what she’s up to. Sitting in her high chair. 

“Morley, dinner isn’t ready yet”, I say. Not a good enough answer. 

Luckily, with our HelloFresh meal subscription, making dinner is quick (and near painless). Most of the meals take 30 minutes or less. Less time in the kitchen, means a happy toddler.

Stage 6, after what feels like a lifetime to a toddler, dinner is finally served. Without even giving it a chance, the words “Morley no want” come out of her mouth. She’s not a picky eater, but sometimes she pretends she is. We call her bluff.

After physically giving her the first scoop ourselves, stage 7 makes an appearance. The realization that what mama’s made is not going to kill her and is actually delicious. “Yummmm”, she says, followed by another heaping spoonful into her mouth. This time on her own doing. Success.

Dinner with a Toddler

Stage 8, the “all done”, marked by a quick swipe of the arm across the tray. Everything, and I mean everything, is now on the floor. Even that half glass of milk. The swipe is followed by the hulk, where she uses all of the strength she has in her little body to try and bust out of the highchair, with no luck. Mid-bite, we must stop to let her out.

Dinner is all done. Everything is cleaned up and put away. Toddler is bathed and now it’s time to relax. Oh wait, not before one last request for a peanut butter taco (i.e. rolled tortilla with peanut butter). Stage 9, the snacker. We compromise on something a bit healthier, peanut butter and apple, and settle on the couch with a book, or ten.

Finally, there is peace in the house.

Family Time at the ROM

T-Rex at the Royal Ontario Museum

From dinosaurs to Dior, you’ll find it all at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) this winter. 

Pre-child, I loved visiting museums. I loved strolling through the various galleries, taking my time reading the interpretive displays and learning about the different artifacts and cultures they represent. Natural history is my happy place, so getting lost amongst the many animal artifacts was where you could usually find me.

Those days may be long gone now that there is a toddler in the picture, but that doesn’t mean that I still don’t enjoy visiting museums. It just means that I now get to see them in a whole different way, through the eyes of my daughter. She is able to draw attention to the little things that I may have missed in the past. 

Hands-on Biodiversity Gallery at the Royal Ontario Museum

The ROM, located in the heart of downtown Toronto, is one of those museums that I could visit over and over again with little miss Morley and not get bored.

The museum consists of over 6 million objects and 40 galleries, and is one of the world’s leading museums of art, natural history and world cultures. It truly has something for everyone - from a walking, talking nearly two-year-old, to her thirty-something year old mama.

From taking a trip back in time to visit the dinosaurs, to exploring the animals of current day, when we visit the ROM, most of our time is spent on Level 2.

Here are Morley’s ROM Must-sees on Level 2:
  1. Dig for dinosaurs in the CIBC Discovery Gallery.
  2. Become a creature of the night in The Bat Cave.
  3. Touch a shark jaw, beaver pelt and snake skin in the Patrick and Barbara Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity.
  4. Take a selfie with the T-Rex in the James and Louise Temerty Galleries of the Age of Dinosaurs.
  5. See eye to eye with a polar bear in the Life in Crisis: Schad Gallery of Biodiversity.
  6. Become part of the flock in the Gallery of Birds. 

There is so much to see and do at the ROM, that you really can’t explore all of it in one day. It keeps drawing you back in. A ROM Family Membership is the best way to take advantage of everything the ROM has to offer.

Polar bear and seal at the Royal Ontario Museum

This winter, a ROM membership is the best value for visitors to explore the museum’s surcharged exhibitions - VIKINGS: The Exhibition, Christian Dior and Wildlife Photographer of the Year. It is not only the most cost-effective way to see the entire museum, but members can come back for free and unlimited visits year-round! That means you can come back as often as you’d like to make sure that you say hello to every single animal, touch every single interactive and cover every square foot of public space.
