My pizza addiction is a real thing. But when I’m making pizza at home, I always make myself a panzo and it never disappoints. Homemade dough. Baked, not fried. Filled with everything I would have on pizza with extra sauce. 425°F on a pizza stone for 16ish minutes. A fraction of the price of take out or dine-in, and so much yum with no risk of some stranger’s fingernail or hair in my food. 💁🏼‍♀️ When I know that this is the dinner plan, I will skip snacks and lunch in order to fool myself into thinking it’s reasonable. 😂 #TheKeswickBlog #Latergram #HomeCooking #FrugalEats #AintNeverGonnaBeSkinny #panzerotti
Wacky outfit and wacky hair day for this third grader. Entirely her own creation, I only helped with the ponytails and hair spray. #TheKeswickBlog #MissMoon #CreativeKids

“Mumma, was Charles Dickens a good writer? “Um, yes, many have enjoyed his novels.” “And how small did he write?” “I’m sorry? How small did he write?” “Yeah, was it like this small?” Thumb and index finger pinched together, almost touching. “Oh! You mean the font size? Well, that depends on the edition you’re reading.” “Hmmm.” Next thing I know, this is #Paxton at the kitchen island with a copy of Tale of Two Cities in the tiniest font and trying to read it using his self-fashioned eyewear Part 3. #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #KidsUnplugged #PossibilyAlsoUnhinged #WhyIHaveFiveKids
#Paxton ’s attempt at glasses part 2. His eyesight is (thankfully) fine, he’s just obsessed with creating his own eyewear.🤓😎🤓🧡 #TheKeswickBlog #KidsUnplugged #CreativeKids #MumLife #MomLife #WhyIHaveFiveKids 😂
Huh? Why?!?!? How?!?!? 💃🏼🕺🏼 #TheKeswickBlog #Twitter #1970s
The kids and I spend a minimum of four hours a week at the public library. Even so, I still end up paying late fees because keeping track of what five people check out and return is apparently beyond my skill set. 🤷🏼‍♀️ But I never complain about those fees because READING. 📚 #Pax brought me this CD today because he knows who sings Purple Rain, and he figured this one must be good too. I hope that #MySmalls always seek out the library wherever life takes them and that they always feel at home and happy to be surrounded by books, music, movies and relative quiet. #momlife #mumlife #TheKeswickBlog #KidsUnplugged #GrowingBookworms #TheyLearnWhatWeDoNotWhatWeSay
I feel like this cat has attained new heights of greatness in her #napping game. I should mention that she is two feet away from a roaring fire and that the fact that she comes fully equipped with her own fur coat to snuggle down in is an injustice that is not lost on me. Despite the luxury attire she’s sporting, she chooses to slumber on #Paxton ’s coat, which he threw there to dry after playing outside yesterday. Because why hang it up to dry when the floor is so convenient?🤦🏼‍♀️ #TheKeswickBlog #catsofinstagram #MumLife #MomLife #Winter #Luckster
True story. They make me cry. Oh, and read to your kids everyday. The human race will thank you one day. #NewPost #TheKeswickBlog #KidsUnplugged #momlife #MumLife #RaiseGoodHumans #RaiseKindHumans
Over the Christmas break, my eldest son got eyeglasses for the first time and I admit that I have been wearing reading glasses fairly regularly for the past few months. Yesterday, my youngest son decided that he too needed glasses, but unable to find an optometrist who agreed with him, decided to fashion his own spectacles out of K’Nex. And yes, he wore them on the bus to school. “How’d it go today? Did you wear your glasses?” “Oh, yes. All day. I can’t see a thing without them!” 🤓😂😂 #whyihavefivekids #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #CreativeKids #KidsUnplugged #ThePaxRevolution
When you open a box a cereal and find it a “little light.” Hmmmmm 🤔 But it’s all good. I called it in and they were very helpful. Looking forward to my FPC to replace the cereal for #MySmalls #TheKeswickBlog #HousewifeLife #MumLife #MomLife #Frugal
Am I doing #adulting wrong? If I spent $675 on a wallet that needed to be handled only while when wearing gloves, AND I needed to arrange a “payment plan” to pay for it a) I’d have no money left to put in the wallet b) My family would immediately arrange a psych evaluation for me and c) I’d totally screw it up, forget to wear the gloves and likely toss it in my purse with the crumpled tissues, broken toys, bits of rocks and bottle caps and my oft uncapped lip balm, rendering it worthless almost immediately AND I’d still owe $600+ in payments. 🤷🏼‍♀️ #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #extravaganza
My piggy-art game is weak (I’m not too proud to admit it), but luckily I’ve got killer dance moves - straight from the 80’s to a kitchen near you (if you’re in my house, that is) 😂😂 #MomLife #MumLife #TheKeswickBlog #Parenting #BreakfastForDinner
Confession: I was too busy enjoying #MySmalls ’ rendition of “Happy Birthday” (complete with the “cha-cha-cha!” at the end of each phrase 🥰) to take a picture of the lovely collection of cupcakes @keswickscott assembled for my birthday. So after the song, and after everyone had demolished their respective cupcake, (excluding Pax but including me), I used one of the leftover cupcakes to create a fairly inadequate re-creation. #PhotoOp 💁🏼‍♀️ Glaring differences between the actual one and mine? 1) The upside plate is all me, Scott used the ‘nice’ side of the plate. 2) His collection had seven cupcakes vs. my one, lonely, probably-going-to-cry-in-her-ice-cream-later version and 3) His happy collection of cupcakes, on their appropriately oriented plate were not presented to me on the dish dryer thingy. Again, that was all me. 🤷🏼‍♀️ #TheKeswickBlog #Birthday2019 #OnlyHaveAroundSixtyMoreOfTheseToGo #BetterGetBusy #BirthdayGirl #TellNoLies
Chili / Chilly night here. So chili for dinner sounded right. Vegetarian on the left, steak on the right. This kitchen smells so chil-azing right now! #TheKeswickBlog #momlife #mumlife #HomeCooking #Winter2019
New Year, new bread! Well, fresh bread anyway. It’s always a good time for homemade bread, right? #TheKeswickBlog #momlife #MumLife #HomeBaking #WholeWheatAndHoney #GetIntoMyBelly
Somehow, I have passed along my love of all things disco to #MissMoon . This mini-disco ball hangs in her window and this afternoon, while walking past, the sparkle and light dancing on her walls and ceiling stopped me in my tracks. Because shiny things make me happy. #TheKeswickBlog #SimplePleasures #EasilyDistracted #MumLife #MomLife #DiscoLife
In the nick of time, my 2018 #goal was achieved (after I had called it a fail and headed to bed before midnight). Thank you to anyone who reads, comments, likes or shares anything I post. And like the picture says, ya’ll make my heart happy. #TheKeswickBlog #2019 #HappyNewYear 🥳
Santa picture 2018 done! Believe it or not this is the first Santa picture I have with all of #myfive included. By the time #MissMoon arrived, Declan was over Santa pictures. Happy to report he’s past that phase now 👍🏻 🎅🏻🤶🏻💜💙💛🧡💖🖤 #TheKeswickBlog #momlife #MumLife #Christmas2018 #WhyIHaveFiveKids
Date Squares. First time baking a batch. Baked and cut but I’m chickening out of taking them out of the dish in case the results are more like Date Smush than squares 🤷🏼‍♀️. It appears that we have finally found the limits of my kitchen bravery 💁🏼‍♀️ They can eat ‘em with a spoon if the bars don’t set 😂 #TheKeswickBlog #KitchenAdventures #MumLife #MomLife #BakingMyWayThroughTheSnow #AintNeverGonnaBeSkinny 💃🏼 #SorryNotSorry
When winter shows up and brings icy cold sadness with her, I look to this girl, Hula Betty, to remind me of warmer, sunnier, less sucky days. She’s my #KitchenGuardian . #TheKeswickBlog #HurryBackSummer #Betty
Tucking the boys into bed and my hair was getting in my way so I decided to embrace my inner Cousin It and roll with it. Pax asked to use my phone to take a picture, how could I say “no”? 🤷🏼‍♀️ #GlamourShot #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #CrazyHairDontCare
My husband had a great idea to go and explore the waterfront in Orillia this afternoon. Mostly just the six of us and a few dog walkers mixed in with the occasional joggers (they’re actually probably regular joggers, they looked pretty fit 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏼‍♂️) were out enjoying the boardwalk and snow. Observed our moment of silence in the car and listened to the service on @981chfi - I tear up every time. #TheKeswickBlog #Remembrance #Family #MySmalls #MumLife #momlife #LestWeForget
#TBT 24 years to @declaanphillips first summer. I was too young to know just how much I didn’t know about being a mother and he was WAY too young to have figured out that he may be in a bit of a pickle (but his face is screaming “you’ve got to be KIDDING me with this chick!”) But we figured it out, made mistakes, did some things right, weathered the storms and today, he’s all good. As for me, I’m none the wiser, I just have more kids making that face at me. #SorryNotSorry , my loves! 😂😍😂 #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #90sBaby #whyihavefivekids
Monday: Followed the plan. Beef stew on the left, vegetarian chilli on the right. Dinner (and leftovers) are ready! #MealPlan #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife
New post on the blog today. One week of no-spending/shopping, to use what we have and get the household budget balance sheet to, well, balance. 💁🏼‍♀️ Will update in a week and share if my well was a win or a fail. Link in bio, as always 🥰 #TheKeswickBlog #MomLife #MumLife #Money #Budget #frugal
This is my spot. This has been command central for the past six years. This also happens to be our kitchen table (kids have always eaten at the island). Today, I decided to move my computer and paperwork all back into my office and get more disciplined about how I allocate and use my time, so as to maximize the time that I have with my family and also the time I spend running our household and lives. #ChangeIsHard but it’s also necessary in order to continue to grow and move our lives forward. No more hopping on my laptop to check something, schedule something or figure something out while I’m in the middle of doing “life” with my family. Discipline. 💪🏻 It will be my new name from now in. I mean, if I can stop eating Halloween-sized bags of Doritos after 16 bags (may have run out at the point, but still) then I think that I have more than shown just how disciplined I’ve become in my adult years, yes? #TheKeswickBlog #HousewifeLife #MumLife #MomLife #KitchenTableWriterNoMore
A pirate, a taco, a rasher of bacon and a hot cat-dog walk into a bar... #TheKeswickBlog #Halloween2018 #MySmalls #MumLife 👻🎃
The three dudes out partying on the weekend, stayed out all night and woke up wearing disguises. Their emoji-faced sister 😜 kept close to home and remained frost-free. Snow before Halloween? Sacre bleu! And now it’s raining buckets. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it stops before it’s time to troll the streets looking for candy 🧛🏻‍♂️🧟‍♀️🎃👻 #TheKeswickBlog #Halloween2018 #MumLife #Pumpkin
And THIS, boys and girls is exactly why I #aintevergonnabeskinny . @testkitchen Flaky Dinner Rolls and Quick Cinnamon Rolls while we wait for the Family Favourites Cheese Lasagna to finish baking in the oven, and I’m not even sorry. #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #HomeCooking #SundayDinner
So, I guess we’re carving pumpkins and roasting seeds tonight! #TheKeswickBlog #Halloween2018 #MumLife #AllThePumpkins 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃
This kid is 12 today! 12! How did this happen? He’s so smart, strong and sweet, he has been from day one and I am beyond privileged to have been allowed to call him mine and be his mama. The years are flying by (despite how long the days sometimes feel) and I am so excited to see where his journey takes him. He is my sunshine, then and now. #TheKeswickBlog #HappyBirthday #MumLife #MomLife #WhyIHaveFiveKids #DeaconMyDeacon 💚💚
Shhhhh! Don’t tell Gargamel, but Smurf Village is in Keswick! La la la la la la sing a happy song 🎤🍄 #TheKeswickBlog #YesImmaADork 🤓 #Autumn2018
Spaghetti tonight for dinner. Fast, cheap and easy. Everything I don’t like in people, I covet and seek out in food. Don’t worry, the sauce is homemade. I have not yet given up completely 🤓 #TheKeswickBlog #MomLife #MumLife #EasyDinner #Autumn2018
Thanksgiving road trip to #Tervete . The first picture was taken start of the trip while everyone was still happy and no one was squished or cranky (note #MissMoon is doing her emoji impression) and the second picture is of my beautiful boys during the ferry crossing. I once was young and full of bravado “I regret nothing!” I would declare to my gobsmacked parents after yet another questionable life choice. Well, I’m older now and I do have regrets, but being mum to #MyFive will never be one of them. Neither will that second piece of cheesecake that I always eat, because life is too short for that sort of deprivation. 😜 #TheKeswickBlog #Thanksgiving2018 #MumLife #MomLife #whyihavefivekids
So, I’m sitting here, in the kitchen, just minding my own business, not bothering a soul, when BANG! My glass mixing bowl just up and breaks clean apart. It was just sitting on the stovetop. No one else is home. The stove is OFF. My bowl is RUINED 😭😭 But honestly, what in the world?!? I bought this three-piece set from @ikeacanada probably 15 or more years ago, and I’ve worked them like rented mules since then, but still, I wanted to have them FOREVER 😩 #TheKeswickBlog #KitchenDisaster #MomLife #MumLife #OfCourse
I’ll grant you, it looks a bloody mess, but I’ve been wanting to play with phyllo pastry for a long, long time. If following along with me on IG or Facebook has taught you anything about my personality disorders, it’s likely that you have deduced that a) I allow my mind to intimidate me to the point of inertia, b) eventually my stomach always wins and I do the scary thing in order to feed my gluttony and c) Afterwards, I almost always declare “why did I wait to do this?!?” And “I’m going to do this ALL the time!” So, tonight it’s phyllo wrapped salmon for dinner and phyllo wrapped apples for dessert. Tomorrow? Who knows. Probably phyllo wrapped Mac and cheese or some such absurdity. Because my mind knows no normal. And I’m starting to be okay with that. #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #Baking #HomeCooking
These are the people about whom I refer to as #mysmalls . As you can see, the tag is outdated. But they are still almost all of #mypeople and today they sat still in one place for long enough for me to take a picture. In other news, it turns out that peace between siblings is found in two places; at the waters edge and in mountain-sized piles of dirt to play in. Put them in either of those two environments and there are no arguments or tears. Put them in front of a t.v. and wait for the brawl. #TheKeswickBlog #kidsunplugged #getoutside #LakeSimcoe #mumlife #momlife
Deck support posts? Nope! Not anymore! #TheKeswickBlog #Summer2018 #Grading #homerenovation
It’s what’s for dinner. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Luckily, my kids embrace my dorkiness. Of course, doing otherwise would result in empty tummys, so I applaud their choice to deal with it (/me). 💁🏼‍♀️ #TheKeswickBlog #BreakfastForDinner #mumlife #momlife #WifeLife #Chalk
A future farmer, mechanic, crash test engineer, athlete and veterinarian all started school today. We’re five for five this year for ‘back to school’ pictures for the first time ever! College, high school, junior high and elementary school x2 - oh my 😱 #TheKeswickBlog #MomLife #MumLife #whyihavefivekids #backtoschool
I’m not a good mother, I just play one on social media. *************************************************************It’s the last big weekend of soccer. Two of my boys are playing on two different teams, two games a piece. Two wins, a third win due to forfeit, the fourth, still in progress. *************************************************************But it’s raining and rain is wet and I like to be dry, unless I’m swimming, showering or sobbing. So like a petulant prima donna and most unlike a seasoned mother of five, here I sit, in my mum minivan watching one of his last games of the season and cheering like no one can hear me. Because they can’t. Their hearing is impaired by falling rain, giant umbrellas, and their own smug sense of superiority. ************************************************************But, being the mother that I am, my kids will have WAY bigger scars than this to heal in therapy when they are in their 40’s. ************************************************************ #TheKeswickBlog #MomLife #MumLife #MediocrisyMaster #Summer2018 #Winning #Parenting #Twitter
I live with the guilt of my violent attack and the sorrow of my loss. But in the infamous word of Scarlet O’Hara, “...Oh! I can’t think about this now! I’ll go crazy if I do! I’ll think about it tomorrow. But I must think about it. I must think about it. What is there to do? What is there that matters?...” “After all tomorrow is another day.” In other words, I’ll solve the bra issue first and worry about the rest tomorrow 😏 #TheKeswickBlog #Twitter #momlife #mumlife
Outdoor movie night. Welcome to the Jungle in our backyard #Jumanji2 #Summer2018 #TheKeswickBlog #momlife #mumlife
Even woodpeckers wanna hang at the beach today. This dude was tap, tap, tapping right above my head. Usually I hate it when we go to the beach and it’s all but empty and someone will decide to set up camp thisclose to us. This time though, meh, it wasn’t so bad. Turns out being crowded out by an animal is far better than being crowed out by humans. Go figure, right? #TheKeswickBlog #Summer2018 #BeachDay #birdwatching
Year three, kids are at camp for the week. The house is eerily silent. And getting tidier by the moment. It’s not as awesome as one might imagine. We dropped them off yesterday and missed them like crazy before we even backed out of our parking spot. This is why I never wish for freedom and a day of complete silence. Both are over-rated once you have kids. But I know they are having fun beyond fun, so I’ll suck it up and keep my self-pitying tears to myself. #mysmalls #thekeswickblog #whyihavefivekids #mumlife #momlife #Summer2018
The post started with: “My smalls brought me a gift. Usually dead things are not my thing, but this perfect dragonfly specimen is the exception. It makes my heart happy that their instinct was to gift it to me, rather than ignore or brush it aside.” #TheKeswickBlog #GardenGifts #MumLife #MomLife #Summer2018 #whyihavefivekids

Because everyday we hear how other drivers frustrate their fellow drivers on the road by not following the rules of the road and practicing basic courtesy. This time, I was one of those “other” drivers. http://thekeswickblog.com/2018/07/sometimes-while-driving-the-jerk-is-you-this-time-it-was-me/ #TheKeswickBlog #Summer2018 #MomLife #MumLife #Apologies
When your youngest two kids beg you to take them out for a jog in 30C weather, and you realize in that moment that they couldn’t possibly be related to you, but you’ve become accustomed to and super attached to them at this point so you keep your mouth shut about the whole “switched at birth” thing and just take them for their fricken jog (but of course you walk while they run because, well, boobs and dignity). #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #Summer2018 #FrugalFun #whyihavefivekids #MySmalls #KeepingItClassy
The ‘spa’ was open! Four wiggling, whinging, sometimes smiling and sometimes moaning, non-paying yet demanding customers today. All survived with a minimal amount of trauma and tears. Closing up shop now and kicking them all out to play (read: fight with and torture each other) while I clean up the homemade facial mask carnage (oatmeal, egg, water, and herbal tea leaves). On the upside, #mysmalls are all super-excited to look five years younger 😂 #TheKeswickBlog #mumlife #momlife #whyihavefivekids #Summer2018 #FrugalFun
These two-year-old Persian sisters adopted us a month ago and have mostly been as grumpy as they both look in this picture ever since. But, I’m hoping that we’re finally turning the corner with them and that they’re about to shower us with all kinds of affection instead of this unrelenting (c)attitude. Don’t worry, I’m fully aware and am prepared to be disappointed. As much of a pain as these two have been, that flat little face and the enormity of the fluff factor have a little bit stolen my heart (and of course #mysmalls LOVE them).

9.9lbs of freshly picked local Ontario strawberries. Am I making jam, you may wonder? Nope, I wish. 🤷🏼‍♀️ This bounty will be consumed and the baskets left barren and breathless within 36 hours, tops. But the kids love going picking and the incredible sweetness of these gems puts the imported berries to shame. #TheKeswickBlog #GoodThingsGrowInOntario #momlife #mumlife #Summer2018 #ShopLocal #EatLocal
Missing @declaanphillips from this collage, but he and #MySmalls are ready to do@summer up right and then tackle all the new adventures they will face in September. And we couldn’t be prouder of or more grateful for each and every one of them. #TheKeswickBlog #WhyAreTheySoBig 😭 #MumLife #MomLife #SchoolDays #Summer2018
I had no idea what I was doing when I had my first baby, I was just a kid myself so naturally I thought that I knew EVERYTHING. Meh. It turns out, that I had so much left to learn and still do and while I’m not sure that I’ll ever truly be the mother I want to be, but I do know that I’ll never stop trying to be a better mother. Some people were born to be doctors. Others were born to be CEOs, astronauts or world leaders. Me? I’ve (mostly) come to terms with never setting the world on fire with my brilliance. I always wanted six, I got five. Sometimes you really don’t get what you want, but you do get what you need. I was born to be their mama and knowing that makes my heart happy. #MyFiveReasons #mumlife #momlife #TheKeswickBlog #GrowingUp #MyFive
I have voted in every election, at every level of government since I turned 18. I’ve never before been faced with so many poor choices and not even one mediocre one. So, seeing as time is limited, and the way things are going, Miranda’s Magic 8 Ball is as good a way as any to decide how to vote today. #TheKeswickBlog #OntarioElection #2018 #KindOfKidding #JustVote
This past weekend was ‘kick off’ weekend for the Lake Simcoe Soccer Club. I absolutely love and adore how #MissMoon came completely prepared for the days’ games. She packed her own bag and spectated like a boss. This girl is my #goals all day long. Her brothers all played amazingly well and can’t wait for their next games, proud mama! 👦🏻👦🏻👦🏼⚽️#TheKeswickBlog #mygirl #whyihavefivekids #MumLife #Spring2018

Sometimes something will get me so riled up it makes my hair hurt. Send high calorie, sugar-laden snacks. Or don’t because I’m already uncomfortable enough in my “fat” pants. So, instead just raise good humans who are not as entitled and useless as this greaseball. #TheKeswickBlog #RaiseGoodHumans #Twitter
Anyone wanna bet that today the neighbours will NOT be (falsely) claiming ownership of the trees planted on our side of the property line? Hmmm? No takers? Yeah, me neither 🤔 #TheKeswickBlog #TreeDown #Spring2018 #Storm
By the looks of this, someone has been getting into the Harry Potter books again. 🤔 This had better be the beginnings of the spell that will make me skinny once and for all 😂 My oh my, the things I find when I venture into the boys’ room to vacuum 🤷🏼‍♀️ #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #WhyIHaveFiveKids #HousewifeLife
When I was growing up, all the cool girls had French braids. My parents met while they were both attending Bruno’s hair dressing school. My hair was never French braided. #Irony . So, I naturally figured it must have been one of those super-complicated-only-the-chosen-can-attain skills. Like finger whistling (which I can do) or back hand springs (which I definitely cannot). So I turned French braiding hair into this impossible task that I could never learn how to do. Except that today I did learn. And while it’s not perfect, it looks pretty darn good in my estimation. And while #MissMoon has always been my absolute definition of ‘a cool girl,’ being able to do this to her hair for her is the icing on the cake for me. —————— #TheKeswickBlog #MyGirl #MumLife #MomLife #StopSayingICant #firsts #WhyIHaveFiveKids
When you have frustrated your postal delivery person to the point that she leaves you a broken key and no other way to collect your parcel from the community mailbox, you have two choices. I’m choosing to take the road less travelled here and saying “well played, my worthy adversary, well played.” A relatively quick call to @canadapostagram and the kids should have their socks and undershirts that are currently being held hostage in that tiny compartment sometime next week... ——————— #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #OnlineShopping #PostalMishaps #ItsAllGood #LaughDontRage

When your seven-year-old decides that she’s a vegetarian and sticks to it throughout Lent, you make her meat-free meals with pleasure. Then it hits you and you wonder where this raw pea pod and raw broccoli eating human came from, because you’re a card-carrying Pizzatarian... —————- #TheKeswickBlog #MyGirl #MissMoon #MumLife #MomLife #ThisAppleCantBeFromThisTree 😂 She is always #HerOwnPerson
Dear Winter, thanks for visiting, but it’s time for you to move on now. We’ve had our fun, will cherish the memories made, but I’m done.

Our kids are watching and listening to everything we do and say. Even when we’re positive that they’re not and we’re just raising a pack of sociopaths. They are taking everything in and all of talking, behaviours and beliefs come out in little moments like these. The rabid, feral moments are part of the journey but if we stay the course those moments will not be the final destination. ———- #TheKeswickBlog #MumLife #MomLife #WhyIHaveFiveKids #KeepAtIt #KindnessIsContagious
