The meaning of Mother’s Day means something different to every man, child and Mom across the world. For most, it’s a time to celebrate the Moms in your life. I started this post with the intention of making it out to be a tribute to my own mother for the times she’s been there for me, regardless of petty tiffs and squabbles we have had over time.

All year we look forward to summer break where we can relax from the soccer mom role for a couple short months and spend quality time reconnecting with each other as a family. Our summer has been filled with our usual DIY projects, days at the pool and even a little camping break.

Summer is officially here and kids all over the place are out of school, or soon to be, and excited to get out and enjoy the weather. Most of us begin the summer with an eager attitude, usually before the boredom sets in and you’re left anxiously awaiting for the new school year. No matter if you are enjoying a staycation or a vacation this summer, every parent needs to keep summer safety tips in mind to keep little and big kids alike safe and healthy.
A little over two years ago in March of 2010, I started a little hobby blog called This Lil Piglet to satisfy my need to for continuous mental stimulation after I was laid off from my career of 13 years in emergency services. I had been around the blogsphere, read many other blogs, entered a few blog giveaways, found a few favourites and had an epiphany, I was meant to blog.
