Welcome Toronto Life Readers!
Hello to anyone coming here for the first time from Katrina Onstad's article in the May issue of Toronto Life! Make yourself at home.
My husband (known as McHotty here) and I are parents of an amazing three-year old girl, known as Cakes.
I’m just finishing the hell that is grad school, and have started a new career in publishing.
We’ve lived here in Leslieville for three years now. Despite the swat teams, we love it here, and are extremely committed to bringing up baby downtown. Despite the unpleasant incident described in the article, for the most part the restaurant owners and shopkeepers here in Leslieville are lovely, and more than welcoming. Just a few examples: Kubo Radio, Joy Bistro, Bonjour Brioche, Doll Factory by Damzels, Brick Street Bakery, and the Mercury Espresso Bar.
Do you have your own favourite child-friendly shops and restaurants? Leave them in the comments, and I’ll do a post rounding them up.
Want to hear from more blogging parents? I’d like to point you to the new and improved version of Mommy Blogs Toronto: Better Than A Playdate. Playdate is a group of smart, hip Canadian parents, blogging about everything from current events, to sex, to restaurant reviews, to celebrity gossip. It’s a lot of fun.
Thanks for visiting!
