We are official members of the Ontario Science Centre. heaven on earth to my children.

Isabella had the time of her life. cuteness overload.

she discovered this



and spent a good two hours entertaining herself here. i’m so not even kidding.

oh, and then she discovered the floor! that has pictures on it! that move! when you touch them!



now, if you look at nothing else on this site today…please watch this video. please. i beg you.

and if you can’t quite make-out her paci-speak, she’s saying “i gotcha! i gotcha!” and then “come back! come back!”
another 2 hours of fun for Isabella. we don’t even think she realized that she wasn’t actually in an aquarium.

and lest you think the other kids didn’t have a good time…i hereby give you the entire flickr photoset…which includes Emily’s hair-raising adventure! and josh as an astronaut!

and lest you think that i didn’t have a good time…i hereby give you this:

what is it, you ask? It’s the entrance to the human body wing of the centre, of course. duh.

my answer to Emily, though, was:

“um, it’s a man. running. naked.”

and then i whispered to the husband

“i thought this was a family place!”

now, if you please, come on over to my other site, where you can meet my daughter’s split personality, Mr. Hyde.



  1. WOW .. I want to go there!
    They have something similar in Ottawa, but no where near as high-tech …
    I’d be crawling on the floor too just like Isabella.

  2. I love that floor! We used to be members since we lived down the street. I think I was just as entertained by the floor as Isabella. It’s really cool.
    I always laughed at the parents who would not let their kids crawl after the fish cause their clothes would get dirty. Glad you’re not one of them.

  3. We went there this summer and we were kicking ourselves later that we didn’t get the annual pass. It was awesome. The light floor was a big hit for my kids too. We were all on the floor trying to catch the fish/flowers/random shapes.

  7. that floor is great! I’d like one in my house, it would keep everyone busy for a long, long time.

  8. I didn’t think the munchkin was old enough for OSC yet, but apparently she is! I am SO stoked to take her there now. Thanks for giving me the proof.

  9. Man I love the OSC, I wish we lived closer to it. We went this past summer and everyone loved it, especially my hubby who spent an hour in the media section making stop motion video. I am heading to Oshawa in a few weeks, you can bet we will be going there for a visit, even if it is over an hour away!
    That video of Bella is so adorable.

  10. Anything that entertains your child for hours on end is a definite two thumbs up. Wish we had one in Atlanta!

  11. Isabella is so cute, and really easy to understand actually. hahaha. of course, i, like you, would be singing a different tune with her other side because that would not be so cute.

    I’ve met friends there just for a playdate when it is crappy out.

  16. Wow – that looks awesome! I was thinking that the Science Centre was too old for the Peanut, but perhaps not!

  18. I had an experience like that with the boys that I used to be a nanny for. Not fun.


    Comment by Keri on October 23, 2007
  19. BTW .. I showed the video to my husband, we watched it about 5 times to figure out how the heck they did that .. top mounted projector? touch pads? Anyway, was amazes me is how clearly Isabella talks with her paci in her mouth, not to mention, it doesn’t fall out and she is facing down lol, clever kid!


    Comment by Sarah on October 24, 2007
  20. So the video was pretty much the most awesome thing I have seen this week. She is too cute.

  30. October 5, 2011 This guy has poestd so many times about me and my sick chicken Pearl that I can’t decide if he has a crush on me or is just morbidly obsessed with reading about animal deaths. Shit, I didn’t even read my own post as many times as he seems to have read it. Like, you wouldn’t watch Shoah (9 hour documentary on the Holocaust) repeatedly because that would be totally fucked up and distressing. I think this guy is an animal death pervo and I for one would like him to stop stalking me (and you!). Gives me the freakin’ creeps.

  31. It’s an remarkable piece of writing designed for all the internet visitors; they will
    obtain benefit from it I am sure.
