I purposed, before the birth of my daughter, to be the kind of mom I'd long wanted to be. At all costs. Unbeknownst to her, my daughter had thrown me a challenge. I needed to use my God-given talents and life's passions to be productive while still working around her needs and her schedule. Here are some daily adventures and small successes.


Of power failures and Coleman's camping lanterns - Montreal's South Shore photographer

A couple of weeks back, we lost power for about 8 minutes. It was 8 minutes of sheer catastrophe. Suddenly the gentle hum of every electronic device in our home came to a standstill. My daughter and niece were panic-stricken. No television. No microwave popcorn. But, you know, sometimes crisis can bring out the best in you.

We played with a Coleman camping lantern which emits this great white light. And the girls did a little dramatic posing.

Why dramatic? Well, besides the moody light, munchkins don't sit still when they're giggling. And if these two are smiling, they're giggling. Heavenly.

When the power cam back on, we shut the lights and played some more. It was shadow puppets and such for a whole afternoon.
