The blog entries that pretty accurately reflect the madness going on in my mind!

Get Your Kids’ Brains to Connect with LeapFrog and VTech!

Back when I got ready for school after the summer break, it was flash cards and workbooks to get me back in the swing of things. I’m about to sound like my Dad, but—these kids don’t know how good they have it! While I didn’t need to walk miles […]

Making Kitchen Chores a BREEZE with the Power of LG! — How the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator and LG QuadWash Steam Dishwasher Help You Make the MOST of Your Time in the Kitchen!

You know you’re getting older when you start having appliance envy. As a kid, all you want are toys. Household management? A foreign concept. The multiple bits and pieces to do well at adulting? You completely take it for granted. Childhood’s a simpler time with simpler desires, and it only […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — The State of the #BloggerLife, August 2018 — In the Belly of the Beast

I told myself that once I made my way through my never-ending pile of paper, I’d get myself a Nintendo Switch with the latest Mario and Zelda games to reward myself for all the hard work. Which is great, because getting months ahead in my content by getting all of this […]

This IS Toronto. What Do We DO About It?

I was driving the five minutes home from dropping off a friend as I saw several police cars zoom by westbound in front of me—we’re just one street away from the Danforth. I was woefully unaware of what was happening only five minutes away. Unaware, that is until the […]

See What a CREATIVE Kid Does with the VTech KidiBuzz!

So I don’t know about you, but my kids always want to do what I’m doing. They want to drink from my cup, even when it’s the same juice in their cup. They want to dress like I do, going as far as borrowing my security pass from work to pretend they’re […]

Make GREAT Plans at Canada’s Wonderland!

It’s when you’re a little kid that Canada’s Wonderland most truly lives up to its name. With a park full of surprises they’ll experience for the very first time, you’ll have them wanting a second visit in no time. Dear Canada’s Wonderland — Hey there, it’s been a while! […]

Score 76 points in Scrabble with “Ophthalmologist” — The Canadian Ophthalmological Society: See the Possibilities

If I asked most of you what an ophthalmologist does, I’d likely see a lot of blank stares. (Some ocular humour for you there!) But you wouldn’t be alone. Despite a family history of glaucoma, it honestly wasn’t clear to me, either. I mean, I know what my optometrist does—I stop in every couple […]

Chatting with Casey 0008 — We Are the Sum of Our Experiences

It’s no secret that I’m busy. If I didn’t have Sarah and the kids to keep me grounded, I’d likely spend every waking moment thinking about content, always trying to find the best ways to tell the next story. But with all this thinking going on, people often wonder how I find time for […]

THIRTY-FIVE: Just Trying to Thrive!

Thirty-five—it doesn’t feel like a big deal, but it sure sounds like one. I’ve made birthdays a bit of a non-event for myself since having kids. It isn’t me being “emo” about it as Sarah surmised last year when she planned out a wonderful surprise dinner with my family, but […]

Doing Potty Training Right Thanks to Kandoo Flushable Wipes!

And then you have the parenting situations that play out in slow motion. Like when your kid’s about to fall and smash their head on something hard. Or when they’re about to break something you can’t afford to replace! But for me, one moment that happened recently was my two-year-old’s ill-timed […]
