Remember to Remember

I believe it is so important to remember Remembrance Day. Our lives are busy, and we are in the midst of a long-lasting pandemic. But I think we need to take a moment, and teach our children to take a moment, to remember those who have served, and who continue to serve Canada during times of war, conflict and peace. There have been more than 2 300 000 Canadians who have served throughout our nation’s history, and we have sadly lost 118 000 Canadians. So please remember them while you take a silent moment on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

We also celebrate Hanukkah this month – it begins the evening of Sunday, November 28th. Turn to our Events page to celebrate with your family in unique ways. Make a teensy-tiny menorah or watch a beautiful sand animation of the Hanukkah story. We would love to see and hear how you celebrate, so tag us on Instagram and Facebook with your Hanukkah pictures and stories!

Each month in The Mom & Caregiver magazine, we strive to educate parents about their children, but also about themselves. A caregiver can only care for others when she or he has first taken care of herself or himself. So this month, read fantastic articles on teaching your kids about money ( p. 17) and speech and language development (p. 06). But also educate yourself on adult acne (p. 08) and being your authentic self (p. 22). Plus, the entire family will benefit from this month’s recipe. Nothing’s better than a dinner that is easy, yummy and nutritious (the triple threat, or should I say triple treat!) so spiralize your way to pesto pasta on page 20. 

Some people feel that November is a long, boring month full of grey days. But this month has always been very exciting for me – it’s my birthday month! I truly love giving more than receiving on my special day, so keep an eye on our socials for your chance to win a pizza the love. That will be sure to add some sunshine to the greyness!
