This Weekend in London

** You might notice that our post is BLUE today! That’s because it is WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS  DAY. We have lots of love for our children, neighbours, friends, classmates, cousins, nephews, nieces, sisters, and brothers with autism, all of the therapists, teachers, aides, volunteers, and clinicians who are working with the ASD community and ESPECIALLY all of the LondonMoms out there who are supporting someone with ASD. For more information on ASD and the London branch of Autism Ontario, see HERE

It is Easter weekend and if your kids are school-aged, that means they’ll be home for a whole four days in a row. That is either cause to celebrate or cringe! We suggest you enjoy it!

It is unlikely that they will be in any decent shape to eat after decorating and they will likely begin to smell, depending on how soon you decorate them.

Option two is to hard boil your eggs. Continue reading
