Reading Time: 14 minutes
I remember going to the Vancouver International Children’s Festival when I was a child. It was an amazing visit to see talented, creative performers and be swept up in the creativity with hands-on crafts. Now, after a two year in-person hiatus, the 45th annual Vancouver International Children’s Festival returns In-person from May 31 – June 5 on Granville Island and May 31 - June 12 Online. Once again, world-class theatre, music, dance, circus, puppetry and storytelling performers will entertain Vancouver children and families. This year, eighteen professional performing artists from as far-reaching as Denmark, Ireland and the United Kingdom are scheduled to perform 80 shows.

Reading Time: 3 minutes
I'm super excited to be having a girls night with some "school moms" soon. This time we're going out to have some dinner and then laugh our butts off. Not because we're laughing at the ridiculous things our kids have done, but because we are essentially laughing at ourselves. We are going to see three amazing moms that I'm sure we will relate, all too well, to. My Name Is Not Mom is coming to Vancouver, BC on May 27th! My Name Is Not Mom is a comedy show about the hilarious journey through motherhood with internet sensations Tiffany Jenkins, Meredith Masony and Dena Blizzard.

Reading Time: 5 minutes
There is still a month and a half or so left of school, and it is so important to make sure that your child is still getting the adequate number of hours of sleep that they need each night. Keep in mind, that sleep aids in your child’s growth and development, affects their moods and behaviours at home and at school, and allows their cells to repair at night so that they are restored to start the next day.
