Whitehorse Returns with a New Addition to 'The Northern South'

None It's been more than two years since the Canadian folk rock duo Whitehorse released the EP The Northern South Vol. 1. The disc contained covers of past classics by legends like Robert Johnson, Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, and Chuck Berry. Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet transformed these cuts into dirty, nasty, smoldering tracks that bled fire, flesh, and brimstone. The multi-instrumentalists played and sang as if possessed by the devil, the one that lives inside of us and per...

Turning 14 Years Old

My William is 14 years old. He’s my first baby birth story. He’s my first everything as a mom! This little guy made me a mother and I just can’t believe that he’s 14 years old. 14 years old. My first thought? When the heck did that happen? He was just a baby! He was just my first baby birth story. I remember walking around NYC with him in his gigantic blue stroller and feeling a sense of peace that he was finally here! I had prayed for him to come for so long and to finally have him here, it was...

First Day of School 2018

The first day of school has arrived! It’s here. It’s done. They’re off. I flew in late last night from Cincinnati where I had the opportunity to speak with the P&G Family Care Team. I appreciated that the P&G team knew I couldn’t miss the 1st day of school, so I raced home right after speaking! Throughout the entire flight home all I could think about was today. I had a mental check running through my head… make lunches, get clothes ready, make sure backpacks were packed, make sure cell phones w...

The Benefits of Spending One on One Time with your Kids

The Benefits of Spending One on One Time with your Kids William is the oldest McClelland child. He’s our trailblazer. He’s our first-born. He’s the one that made us want more (and more and more) kids. I’ve always said that William really never got to enjoy the benefits of being the first-born. William was 3 1/2 months old when I found out I was pregnant with Alex. William was 19 months old when I found out I was pregnant with Ben. And then William had just turned 3 when I found out I was pregnan...

Camp Mom: Things To Do with Toddlers in the Summer

Camp Mom: Things To Do with Toddlers in the Summer Victoria is officially out of preschool. She got out on Friday, which means it’s just the 2 of us till her brothers get out on June 21st. I had the option to put her in preschool camp for the next 3 weeks, but I figure it would be nice for her to get some mom time alone… not only with me, but with my mom, too! It’s going to be all hands on deck till summer officially/officially kicks off for the McClelland family! Since I work from home, it’s n...

How to find noises and causes in your Corvette engine

Engine noise makes us more nervous than any other automotive sound because noise can mean expense and inconvenience. And, sometimes engine noise is nothing more than a normal dynamic of the engine’s design. We often make assumptions about engine noise based on what we’re told and who we talk to instead of taking our troubleshooting step-by-step until the source of the noise is discovered and corrected. What’s more, noise doesn’t always need to be corrected. When you evaluate engine sound, rememb...

Bravo to YouTube and Proud to be Part of the YouTube Family #YouTubeParentPanel

I started making videos on YouTube 9 years ago. I LOVED watching videos on YouTube, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate videos into my blog content. It was all very new to me, but it was also very intriguing. I actually still *cringe* when watch some of the first videos that I made because I was so NERVOUS to do them! Here was the 1st video I ever posted on YouTube, that baby in my arms is my Henry (he’ll be 10 in June)!! Literally… you can actually SEE how nervous I was in that vide...

2017, You Were Quite the YEAR

2017. We’re hours away from saying good-bye! Hours away from opening up a new beginning with new chapters and pages and a perfect blank slate… Exactly 365 days ago, if you had told me we would be living in a new town I would have called you crazy. Crazy with a capital “C!” It was always a dream, but just something that I thought would eventually happen. I have always believed that everything happens in life for a reason. Certain people come into your life for a reason. Certain experiences happe...

The Never Ending Christmas List…

My older sons know the *jist* about Santa. (Here’s the best part… they would never tell the younger ones, which is wonderful.) Ever since the older boys figured it out, their Christmas lists have gotten dramatically smaller, which is tremendously kind… but also tremendously difficult. Nobody wants to ask for too much because they feel bad. Isn’t that funny? When it was Santa it was “anything goes!” Now that they know, it’s “let’s be realistic.” This makes it so tough for us because we genuinely ...

Dream Come True! Trip to Nintendo Headquarters! #NintendoAmerica

It was a dream come true for me and my sons! A trip to Nintendo Headquarters! Here’s the thing, when I was a little girl – my parents bought our family a Nintendo gaming center, Power Pad and all! Anyone else remember that Power Pad? It was the best! I was thrilled to be among the bloggers heading to Nintendo because throughout my childhood Nintendo brought a ton of happiness to my life. It was a way to “play” with my older brothers. It brought our family together for some Power Pad Olympic ba...

Daily Update: Not ONE Tear Over Old House

Not ONE tear over our old house from anyone. I honestly can’t believe the tears haven’t come yet for my kids. I thought for sure they would have hit them by now, but… nothing! Not even ONE tear. It’s crazy because what stressed me out the most about this move was my children. Would they be OK? Would they transition well to the new house? Would everything work out in their new space? I spent a couple of nights up late, late, late filled with worry. Fortunately it wasn’t necessary. Everyone is g...

For People Of Color, Fourth Of July Holiday Brings Mixed Feelings

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — As many in the United States celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, some minorities have mixed feelings about the revelry of fireworks and parades in an atmosphere of tension on several fronts. How do you celebrate during what some people of color consider troubling times? Blacks, Latinos and immigrant rights advocates say the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, recent non-convictions of police officers charged in the shootings of black men, and the stepped-up de...

Have the Oilers Ever Had More Functional Toughness?

The 2016-17 Edmonton Oilers have utilized a very unusual deployment of their toughest players — especially compared to other teams in franchise history. Whether you like the term or not, one of the Oilers’ calling cards this season has been their “functional toughness”. Before we go any further, we should try to define that. Of course, hockey people have various definitions of “toughness”, ranging from physicality to the ability to withstand pain to resiliency. But if we are to be brutally hones...

Creating the Perfect Easter Packages for Kids

My kids love Easter for ONE big reason… the Easter gifts! I can’t blame them at all; it was one of my favorite parts as a kid too. I used to love the thought of the Easter Bunny coming when I was sleeping and surprising me with something special! My ahem parents would always create something fun and exciting for each of us, knowing our interests and really making sure we would be excited with what we found from the Easter Bunny. In our house the Easter Bunny hides the gifts and part of the Easte...

Daily Video: Traveling to Kalahari Resorts for a Weekend Getaway #LoveKalahari

The last 3 weeks have been crazy on the travel front for our family. I was away for 6 days earlier this month for a press trip to LA. My husband and older 2 sons were away for 4 days in Boston for a swim meet, I stayed home with a sick Victoria battling the flu. I then was off to NYC for 2 days for work. It’s been a seesaw of travel for our entire family and it’s been tough because it means I don’t get to see everyone regularly. I knew March was going to be a tough month, I just wasn’t prepared ...

Best Mom Advice for Tackling a Cough #VapoRubMom

It’s that time of year. There’s snow on the ground. There’s constantly a chill in the air. There’s boots and gloves and hats out all ready to be worn. You (literally) can’t go outside without being layered up. Oh, yes… it’s officially the winter season in New England. One thing always holds true during this time of year, the “cold season” hits our house. At any given time, at least someone in my family (including me!) has a cough or a cold. One thing I’ve learned throughout my mom years, too is...
