It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Happy Family Day!

Family Day was introduced to Ontario’s list of statutory holidays a few years back, but this is the first year it’s been in my contract. There is a certain irony to sending your children to daycare on “Family Day”, wouldn’t you say? Much as I enjoy irony, this is one I’m pleased to circumvent.

So today, for Family Day?

I’m spending the day with my family! Mine, and no one else’s. Imagine that.

  2. Yay! That’s a much cooler holiday than stinkin’ President’s Day! πŸ™‚ Enjoy the day with your family!

  3. Good on you! Hubby has a contract with the Federal Gov’t…who apparently don’t get to enjoy the new Provincial holiday…and they were slack jawed that he was taking it off.

    Hope you had a great family day, we did. πŸ˜€
