With glowing hearts we see thee rise!

The children, discussing our eventual move to Canada.

BC: And! AND! I don't think there is any war in Canada!

GC: That's true! No war!

BC: Wouldn't you like to live in a place with no war, mom?

Me, distracted: What? Oh, sure. Yeah.

GC: Brother, I think it would be wonderful to live in a place like that.

BC: Me too! And we don't have to learn another language!

GC: Ahhh...Canada. Where ham is bacon.







(I don't understand them either.)

There is no war in Canada. We are very tolerant. What part of Canada are you moving to? We live in Ontario and love it.

Big Mama said...

I live in Canada! Move close to me!! :)

Georgina said...

I'm Canadian! I could you help you understand everything A-BOOT us, if you like, eh? Poutine (it's not a rude word) and Beavertails (also, not a bad word) will make the move up here worthwhile, I assure you! - G

I am Canadian and I assure you Ham is Not Bacon!

Bethany said...

Moving to Canada? Is this the part I'm not supposed to understand, cuz I don't. Since when are you moving to Canada? Or am I just slow on the uptake?

Wow, a lot of us at Canucks! Come out West, I say. ;-)

"Where ham is bacon" - well, the Canadian Bacon in my local grocery store does look like ham...

Big Mama said...

Yes, out West!!

Woman...don't leave us hanging...are you really moving to Canada??

CPA Mom said...

now wait, if you are moving to Canada you have to take me with you - Emma and Nicole (MMTAM) have me convinced over on FB.

Where in Canada are you moving (I suggest Edmonton...)?

Also, make sure your children listen to bands like Marianas Trench, Faber Drive, and Hedley...three of the greatest Canadian bands ever in a teens opinion. The lyrics are (mostly) clean...you may want to check out Shake Tramp by Marianas Trench before you let them listen to it though...

tee hee

don't forget about our abundance of snow and Moose (both actually true in my part of Ontario).

I think you should just get a Canadian Flag and put it on a flag pole in your front yard and claim your yard a new part of Canada. Then anytime anyone says anything war like your kids can just say "hey, no talking like that- this is Canada!". And I am certain they would have to say it a lot... because I have a hunch that posting a Canadian flag in your front yard somehow goes against the whole patriotic American thing you all have going on down there. :) Just offer them all some bacon.

And I bet someone up here could swing an honorary citizenship for you all. Just for fun. Not that I have any actual pull with anyone even remotely important in the world of immigration here but I'd be willing to give it a try. :)

Oh yes, come to Canada. It's very nice here... although quite snowy in the winter.

You're shittin' us, right? Like, f'real.

(and to clarify, we call bacon bacon, but your version of Canadian Bacon is what we call Peameal Bacon. It's ham, with cornmeal... and while I think it's many shades of gross, my family loves it bbq'd in maple syrup. Perhaps you'll come over for some after the move.)

Need another good reason to move to Canada? We'd don't so much like guns. And we're all good with gay marriage. Can't get better than that - well, once you get used to the weather, that is. (Although with global warming it didn't even snow in Toronto this winter!!!! Just sayin'...)

Go to my latest blog and you can see pics of the CN Tower...
