About Me

Welcome! Have a donut.


Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I have two great kids that drive me crazy approximately 98.1% of the time, but make me laugh 100% of the time so they get to stay.


I’m a Greek Canadian living in Ontario, in the same city I was born and raised in. I still have no idea how that happened.

I am a lover of many things and a hater of all Mondays.

I am obsessed with books.

I hoard things like beauty products, magazines and Sharpies. Also, handbags. And cute things.

Oh, and I don’t like to brag, but my boyfriend Colin Firth and I are super close.


Want to contact me about cool products, great books, fab partnerships, fun family attractions, road trips and travel, or other interesting opportunities? I would love to hear from you! Please email me at maria@boredmommyblog.com

Want to contact me so I can reprint something you and/or your dog has written? NOPE.

    Love your site! Lol… fellow migraine sufferer eh? Let me know if you have them under control- I have had quite a run but have found a couple things that help… both holistically and medicinally. I have 4 kids and migraines are way too in my way! Check out my blog- I am new and would love your support!

    Hi sort of “bumped” onto your blog tonight – Was looking up tuna recipes and ended up here. I’m not a mom, my choice. I do give all moms, almost moms and grandmoms “5 gold stars” for all of the work you do for your kids and family. Please take care of yourselves.

    Just came across your blog from my sister! Love love love it! I agree being a STHM can be boring and hard. I’m a nanny, so, not exactly the same, but close!

    Absolutely love your blog! Just started Weight Watchers too, so I’ll keep up with your progress, and looking for humor and realistic motivation! Thanks a bunch, I needed your 100 things, quite hilarious! Great idea to actually work on myself!

    I was skimming through the internet to find something on the new points plus by weight watchers. Enjoyed reading your posts. I am as equally bored as you are and being on mat leave, does wonders to your social life. I hope WW has been good to you. I am doing the old version. It worked the last time I did it and so I hope to have the same success — key word hope! Keep posting, love reading your posts!

    Makes me soooooo happy to hear you say you are bored. I’m a stay at home mom for the first time ever. I’m 33 and have an 11 year old from a previous marriage and now have and 11 week old baby and a 19 week old puppy…..yep you can call me an idiot for trying to do both…I curse myself out everyday!!! Anyway, my new husband (well not so new, coming up on 2 years) has a great job that allows me to stay home. I’M BORED!!! I miss socializing, I’m sick of laundry and dishes!!! Don’t get me wrong, I am happy I get the opportunity to stay home but it’s nice to hear someone else feels the same way!! Love your website!

    okay, this made me laugh and my name is also Maria. You remind me of my friend Steph, which is also my sister’s name. This means we’re obviously kindred spirits. But this is funny, I found you on Twitter and I’m so glad I did. Thanks for the laughs and the entertainment and the honesty. March on.

    OH MY GOSH! This blog absolutely made my day. I am a stay at home mom who is also bored and you are hilarious.

    Got the dreaded mommy I’m bored from the kids today. I went out on a hunt for sites for solutions and ideas. Landed here. Like your approach maybe it’s just the time of year. Thanks Maria.

    I’m so glad I found your blog cause now I have something to read this weekend that’s funny and inspiring. The ‘About Me” alone is brilliant … can’t wait to read rest of it.
