About The Exploring Family

 Little Miss Kate & Co now known as The Exploring Family is written by Kate and Erin, 2 Canadian moms working to embrace the chaos of motherhood one day at a time.  The Little Miss Kate& Co space was founded in 2011 as an outlet to write and share experiences of motherhood and opinions on products/services that help make parenting easier.  What started as a place to provide parents with helpful information to make parenting choices simpler and straight forward has become that and so much more.  2021 symbolized our 10 year anniversary as a site so we decided to rebrand as The Exploring Family. 

The Exploring Family is a well-established online resource for parenting, family travel, recipes and helpful product reviews.


Fast Forward to 2018!

Kate and Erin met online through a local mom Facebook group and decided to merge forces and make Little Miss Kate even better than before, as 2 forces are better than one! Kate and Erin began working together in Sept 2018 and have been working on growing the coverage of Local Greater Toronto content and events as well as improving the blog for all our amazing readers!


About Kate

Hello, I’m Kate – a Canadian Mama living in the Greater Toronto Area. My husband (Hubs) and I are proud parents of 3 young children.  To say that life is busy these days is an understatement.  “Monkey” has been bring excitement into our lives since his very early arrival in July 2010.  In 2012 we welcomed “Little Bear” to our family and he has been keeping us on our toes ever since.  “Roo” arrived in 2014 to make a family of 5!

Outside of my blogging life I have a “regular” day job in healthcare which I love.  When I can find a moment of peace I enjoy fitness, baking and planning our next travel adventures. I also enjoy writing about our experiences in and around the Greater Toronto Area and sharing my thoughts on the latest family-friendly products. I love helping parents find practical solutions to parenting challenges.  Having 3 kids in 4.5 years I know how hard motherhood can be.  I will share what has worked for our family, as well as what has not.  We love to travel and go on adventures – yes family travel with 3 kids can be fun.  Making dishes for my husband is also one of my favourite pass times as I spend time in the kitchen.  If you need inspiration for family friendly dinners or delious desserts we have you covered with easy recipes anyone can make.

About Erin


Erin is a newbie mom blogger who lives with her 2 year old daughter nicknamed Thumper, husband and fur baby Nala the Labrador. When Erin is not on maternity leave, she is a Grade 1 teacher, which can be crazy and chaotic but she loves it.  Now Thumper got her nickname as on our trip to Vancouver, when she was trying to fall asleep in the pack and play all she did was thump her legs on the mattress, sometimes for half an hour at a time until she fell asleep!

When not teaching Erin enjoys being active playing soccer with her co-ed team and spending time outdoors camping and hiking. Erin and her husband love to travel and have already passed on that passion to Thumper as by 6 months she had already visited 3 provinces.

Sports are very important in her household as her family are huge fans of Vancouver Canucks and Toronto FC! Thumper has already been to a Toronto Blue Jays Game, Vancouver Canucks Game and hopes to see a Toronto FC game this summer! Thumper loves watching and playing sports as she has recently started exploring sports through Sportball Brampton (check out our review in Around Peel).

Erin has lived in Brampton most of her life, and loves showing other moms all the fun ways you can be active with your baby while on maternity leave. In the end of 2019, Erin and her family moved to Georgetown which is only a short drive from Brampton so she hopes to grow the blog to include moms of Halton Hills as well!
