Canadian Living Moms turns 1! One year ago we Canadian Living staffers were working late hours behind the scenes to launch this fun initiative for busy moms. Since then, we're not only a place to get inspired, we've become a real online community, too. We're here on Facebook, and here on Twitter...and one place you've definitely got to check us out is on Pinterest, right here.
We had lots of conversations in the months leading up to this week about how we should celebrate this big milestone. What would resonate most with you moms? Ultimately we decided that if you're anything like us, you'd enjoy a Canadian Living Moms Turns 1 package that contained info on:
First birthday parties. How much do other parents spend on this milestone party? Why do first birthday parties turn moms into stress-cases? Are you knocked out by these gorgeous cakes (like the above) on Pinterest, or what?
One-year-olds. Celebrity babies that are 1, and how did they get to 1 so fast 'cause weren't they newborns one hot second ago? Also: tips from notable Canadian moms on how to deal with one-year-olds. This is such a cute age, but my, aren't they a handful? Olympian Jamie Salé, esteemed writers Kathy Buckworth and Ann Douglas, Me to We co-CEO Roxanne Joyal are just some of the moms who share their best tips on raising a one-year-old.
Birthday parties, birthday parties, endless endless birthday parties. We figure you know how to attend them, so we're helping you throw a party with invites, loot bag labels and welcome signs in three adorable themes: bunting, pirate and princess.
So...what do you think? And moreover, thanks so much for helping us celebrate!
