Favourite Things: Elaine Comeau
Elaine Comeau is the mother of three beautiful children (ages eight, four and two), an elementary school teacher, and the creator of Easy Daysies®, the Magnetic Daily Schedules for Kids to help them have easier days one day at a time. She launched her first product about two days after her third child was born and she still packages each and every single order off my kitchen table. The goal of Easy Daysies® is to help kids have easier days not just here at home but also around the world. Five percent of the profits go to help children around the world through International Justice Mission.
Favorite thing for your kids
The most favourite thing our three children love is snuggling up on a couch with mommy and daddy with a blanket, popcorn or ketchup chips (good ol’ Canadian invention) for family movie night. Actually, it does not have to be at night. Just bring on the movie and snacks and my kids will hop on a couch for snuggle time! (This might count as my favourite thing for me too!)
Favorite thing for you
Snuggling on the couch squished between my kids, with one usually lying on top of me, watching a good Pixar or Disney movie. Oh! And don’t forget the snackies!
Favorite thing for work
My i-Phone! I love my i-Phone. I have to laugh at myself when I sometimes catch myself being on both the computer and checking my i-Phone at the same time! Oh dear me! Now, if only I can get my driver’s licence and credit cards to show up on my i-Phone, that is all I would ever have to carry! Plus lip gloss.
Favorite place in Vancouver
My favourite place is my family’s favourite place, the Vancouver Aquarium! Our three little ones are in love with anything in the water. We live outside of the city so it is always a treat and a full day’s adventure for us to head out to the Aquarium, where we have a family membership! How can you not love the Aquarium as it is nestled in the most spectacular park too! I think it will be our family’s favourite place for a very very long time!
Favorite birthday gift idea
Easy Daysies, of course! So I am told, as I am too shy to give my products as gifts to my own friends and family. But what makes a better gift than giving a tool that will help a family get their kids organized and into routine, or finding where their clothes go! Easy Daysies helps kids become more independent, co-operative and confident, all because they know what is going to happen next!
Favorite Vancouver restaurant
Bridges Restaurant on Granville Island will always be special because we had our wedding reception there. My husband and I love the food there and we just love being near the water. Upstairs is more formal and downstairs is where we love to frequent, sitting with yummy foods and drinks on the deck by the water people watching. We truly live in the most beautiful city!
Favorite kids’ book
I Love You, Stinky Face, by Lisa McCourt is an adorable story with illustrations that make you smile. It was given to me when I had my first child. All three of my little ones have loved and requested it over and over at bedtime… we know it off by heart!
