What I Learned in Canada

-I really don't want three kids, as lovely as kids are

-The Backyardagins are ok as long as you don't have to listen to them while the DVD plays on repeat every time you get in the car

-24 hours of children's programming is just.too.much (damn you Treehouse!)

-I miss patios

-Only ever go to a Science Center on sunny summer days or wait in line forever

-Bra shopping is no easier here

-Reading an actual newspaper on a weekend morning is a sensual pleasure the internet will never be able to top

-Tourist attractions are ridiculously expensive outside of Asia

-You will bump into people you know in this city, even if you haven't lived here for 7 years

-Don't take your hand off of the electricity ball

-I miss vegetables

-Two year olds will say "mine!" every ten seconds or so

-Having the grandchildren really is the way to go to get to the top of the heap ;)

-Nothing is as big as I remember - not this town, not how long it takes to walk places, or the buildings in downtown Toronto
