Hi, I am looking for a "gently used" umbrella stroller for my 14 month old...we are tired of using our mother ship stroller and need to switch.  If anyone is willing to sell me theirs for a reasonable price please let me know. Ideally, I want a Maclaren stroller. Thanks!

Superhero costume?  Bad Mommy has left it to the last moment and is desperately looking for any superhero costume that would fit a 3 year old boy (even a 4-6 size would be great).  If anyone has one to spare, pls. email me at  Thanks!!!!

A friend passed this along. Sounds fun!

Some of you may already be aware that every year, neighbours around Trinity Bellwoods Park hold a great event involving their Hallowe'en pumpkins. On Nov. 1 around dusk everyone brings their pumpkins and candles and lines the path with them. It makes a spectacular site, it's fun for the kids, and it's a great opportunity to get together with neighbours you know -- and maybe some you don't.

IT'S COMING TO LESLIEVILLE, thanks to Jennie Ormson and Paula Fletcher who is sponsoring the event.

Bring your pumpkins (the ones that can still stand!) to Leslie Grove Park at Queen and Jones on Tuesday November 1st, 6-630pm or thereafter and light them.

PS. volunteers needed to help clean up at the end of the evening.

Here are pictures from a 2008 event in the West end

  • toning the “problem areas”:  hips, inner thighs and triceps
  • increasing awareness of the breath
  • developing better posture             

Samantha Clayton, PMA-Certified Pilates Instructor will be discussing the benefits of a Pilates regimen.  Learn how Pilates can mitigate common problems during and after pregnancy.  Learn simple exercises while seated!

Pilates is a gentle and non-impact form of exercise.  It's safe, effective and recommended by health professionals including Doctors, Chiropractors and Physiotherapists.

Better park maintenance and monitoring would be a good start. Using another urban setting example such as Paris to observe how it could work: We were there in the spring and were amazed at how seriously the city took the maintenance of their playgrounds. They were locked to the public at 7pm sharp and each morning an inspection of the playground was done by a park attendant. Fines were also in place for being in the park after closure. I doubt Toronto would be game for fencing and locking the playgrounds, but a morning inspection wouldn't be unreasonable.

We are in an urban setting, at the same time I do not believe that we should put up with our parks being used as homes or a place to do drugs, especially when it comes to our kids. With each of these incidents, you should let your city councellor know, so that they can work with parks staff and police. Perhaps if there is a pattern, something can be done.

what if we advocated for some clean public washrooms in the neighbourhood with sharps containers for used needles?  i suspect we won't be able to solve homelessness or addiction, but we could probably figure out some ways to make it easier for people to take care of their needs in a way that is safer for the kids.  maybe we should be bringing this to the attention of paula fletcher?  maybe we could show support for a supervised injection site?
