It Was Her Eyes. Making a Difference For Hungry Kids #Toonies4Tummies

I’m hungry
We are all responsible to make sure our kid's tummies are full. It was her eyes. That's what I remember the most. We were sitting in a sidewalk cafe in Buenos Aires, people streaming along the ramblas in front of us enjoying the 30+ heat and sunshine. As we people-watched, I noticed a number of children, dirty, no shoes, messy, tangled hair, carrying babies with diapers as their only coverage begging to those passing by, pleading for money to feed their family. I know what you are going to say, it might have been a scam. A ruse to foil

JOYTO THE WoRLD
We are our children's biggest role models in how to grow up to be good humans. Yet in our running around, hectic scheduled mayhem that is so common today, we just might be teaching them the wrong set of values. Teaching your kids how to be kind (now and in every day) is an important part of modelling as a parent. As the world shifts and changes, more than ever it is important to teach your kids kindness as a crucial part of their core set of values. The holidays can be crazy for sure but it is also the

People Knew.

She is Fierce
Managing Memories & Moving Forward with #MeToo. I did not want to get out of bed this morning, yet I haven't slept for days. I wade through memories, waking up my past to consciously review the countless times I would say Me Too.  The list (as it is for so many of us) is far too long. Years of unwanted and unwelcome touches, advances or commentary to scroll through. I start to laugh. I laugh because it's all so ridiculous. The boss who told me that sleeping with clients wasn't in my job description but if I opted to do

Why We Are Visiting Places That Will Likely Disappear In Our Lifetime

if-you-could-pick-3-places-to-travel-in-the-world-where-would-you-go-2
The Many Faces of Travel When we finally made the decision to take this trip around the world, a big part of the planning process became "where do we want to go?" Each family member was given a choice of 3 priority destinations that would fulfill a lifelong dream of theirs. If you could pick 3 places to travel in the world, where would you go? Our loose, plan not to plan itinerary is to see the world in all its glory. Yet we realized that many of the places we wanted to see are also ones that are being threatened

Why National Geographic Is To Blame For All Of This

Charles Darwin Science Station
& How we are using Nat Geo as our best tool on the road One of the most vivid, core memories I have as a child is running down the hallway of my grandparents house. Their dark blue, psychedelic carpet and powder blue bathroom sink stamped forever in my brain. As my cousins and I play hide and go seek, I head to my favourite place to hide. A waist-high closet you had to crawl up in to at the end of the hall. As I pop open the closet door, a secret world reveals itself to me. Stacks upon stacks of yellow

Who ARE MomDadCuppaKids?

Who are Mom Dad Cuppa Kids
We can all agree there is so so much noise on the internet. For us, its really important that we don't want this blog to add to the clutter. We want it to be fun, informative, open, and genuine. As we get closer towards to leaving on our #CuppaRTW: Round The World Adventures, we've been thinking a lot on how to bring fresh & new ideas here. Our hopes are that we can help inspire people one way or another and we do believe we can do it ways that will truly provide value. But we realized first and foremost that you might not really know
