The Big Reveal:

Well, I’ve been talking about my “secret project” for a while. And some of you, notable Alexys came pretty close at guessing what I’ve been up to.

I’ve been writing and producing some songs.


I’ve loved music all my life. And I’ve always wanted to be a songwriter. I’ve been writing since I was 12. But life kept interfering. There was a point where I thought – well, I’m too old now, why bother. But I couldn’t stop writing. It’s a passion that’s out of control. So I kept writing through busy, pregnant, sick…

And now, for the first time in my life, I’m actually sharing my passion with people outside my family. I’m horribly nervous, but I feel like I got to take this step.

This is a lullaby I wrote for my sons. I’ve scouted all over the net and flickr to find pictures of sleeping babies to put in the videos. I was amazed at the great response I got from parents.

So, without further ado, here is my first “official” video. Hope you like it.

You can also go directly to the YouTube link and leave me a nice comment or a rating :-) This is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHcockAgFN8

And thank you all for the support and encouragement you’ve given me.

The secret project is to be revealed... soon... partially :-)

I’m not really blogging anymore. But it’s quite a difficult habit to break. I really would be online all day long… If I could. But my kids don’t think so. They rule my life. They control all I do. They control when I sleep and if I sleep. When I eat, and if I eat. They deemed that time for myself is an unnecessary waste. Unless I want to be up all night. Which falls into the “if I sleep” category. So I figured not blogging is better than occasional diving in. But then sometimes I can’t help it. So that’s why I’m here now. Even though I thought I never would be.

The baby has just turned one year old. (He did? Didn’t I just wonder if he’ll ever come out?). The older is three tomorrow. Time’s flying…

But, I do have a little something I’m still doing. Any time I get to myself, I work on that secret project. Which I really have neglected for months. But now I get about an hour a week for it :-)

And I decided to share some of it.


It’s almost not a secret anymore.

In fact, I expect to reveal it here within the next two weeks.

You thought I’d tell you now? Nah… I want to finish up a bit. But I promise I’ll eventually tell you.

In fact, here is a hint: I’ll be posting some of it on Youtube.

Can’t wait.

And now naptime’s over. And so is my daily ration of time for myself.

Bye then.

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

The Beginnings

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
