So are summer vacation is booked to Lake George, NY. We are going to from July 15-21. I am super excited, as it is the first "real" family vacation with all 3 kids!! I mean we have gone little places when we had less offsring, but this might be interesting.

As a Canadian, that does not have Chuck E Cheese. I think I am going to try and take my kids there. It looks CRAZY. I always hear insane things about that place. I am curious as to see what it's all about.

Time Flies

I remember when I was pregnant with Cassandra, everyone used to tell me, cherish the moments cause they go by so fast. I used to half heartily listen and say ya ya.

Fast forward 5 years, and 3 kids later. Boy was everyone right. I cannot believe in this short span of time, I conceived and raised three kids, and is almost out of the woods with diapers.

I would have to say the thing I regret the most, that because of personal issues and things going on in my life I did not enjoy them enough. One of the reasons I decided to start this blog.You seem to forget all the little cute and funny, and the not so funny things.


Since I am new to this whole mommy online blog community thingy, I have noticed a few things.
I am NOT like a lot of the other mothers. I am not sure how you would describe me. I am not a cloth using, lactating, natural birth, crunchy, all green save the earth kinda gal.

There is nothing wrong with that but I don't fit the mold. I did not make my own baby food. I had 3 C-Sections. (2 were emergencies), but would not have it any other way!! I pumped my milk for a month with my first, and 2 weeks with my second, while they were in the NICU. Third child was the only one that would of caught on quickly, but I wanted to be able to sleep. Selfish of me, don't you think??

There is nothing wrong with that lifestyle, it is just not me. I almost feel like a leper, cause I don't fit that mold.


Dominic is my last little baby. He was a pleasant surprise. We were not expecting to have 3 kids. Not in the plan at all!! He defied all the odds at the beginning. (Will talk about birthing experience in another post). He was born @ 37 weeks weighing in at 7 pounds 1oz and 21 inches long.

Dominic is the only child, that I got to see right away after my C-Section. What a difference that makes. I truly believe in the maternal bond with baby, right after childbirth. Something I did not experience with my other 2 children.

Dominic is my baby that LOVES to cuddle. I love it, as my other children did not like it at all. Now that Dominic is almost 3, he is starting to get a character to himself. As I mentioned Nicholas is doing a lot better, well Dominic picked up where he left off, twenty fold. He is also very small, but boy oh boy, does he have spunk. He is slowly developing his character, and quite frankly right now it stinks, so I can't say much positive at the moment. I will change the post, when he gets an attitude adjustment.

Dominic as a baby was very weary of strangers, and did not enjoy when they would approach him. Dominic has a little mean streak right now, and hits and slaps and bites his siblings. Something I have never had to deal with, with the other 2.

Dominic loves the color blue, and love Buzz Light Year and McQueen. Heck he likes everything his brother and sister have!


Nicholas is my sweet darling 3 1/2 year old baby boy!!
He also was a premie, born @ 34weeks but weighing in at a wopping 6 pounds
and 20 inches.

He has boundless energy. Somewhat on the verge of hyperactivity in my opinion.
LOL. He is very manual, is very interested in anything that has to do with working
his hands, whether it is puzzles, cars, building blocks or even coloring despite his energy.

Never would I have thought he could sit still long enough. Nicholas went threw the
difficult ages of 2 and 3, being very defiant and not listening. Now as he is fast approaching
4, it is a lot more smooth sailing. Nicholas is my baby, that probably needs the most attention
and reassurance. Is it because he is a middle child? Who knows??

Nicholas is going to be very good athletically, I can already tell. He was playing hockey
this winter and he was great at it. He even was able to dress himself without any help,
while all the older kids 4, 5 and 6 year olds were rolling on the floor crying/fighting with there parents. He wants to play football. His favorite color is blue and he love BATMAN, and The Little Mermaid.


Cassandra is my little princess. When I mean little, I mean little.
She is 5 years old, and still wears size 3. Everyone in her kindergarten
class, towers over her. She was my first born, premie. Born at 33 weeks
gestation, and weighing 4 pounds, and was 17 inches long.

A little about her. She is a mini me. Looks, character and all.
She is very smart, older intelectually beyond her years. She
is kind, thoughtful, considerate and has a good nature about
her. She thinks you should be nice to everyone, but she will
not let herself be walked over.

She is also a budding little gymnast. Her favorite color is pink.
She likes all things, pretty, sparly and EXPENSIVE..(Just like
mommy). Daddy is going to have fun when she is older!!

Kids Say The Darndest Things

So I decided to start writing down, all the HILARIOUS things, my children say to me, or that I over hear them saying.

Just this morning, I was having a conversation with Cassandra (5 years old) and I was explaining to her, that as her mommy I will always be there to protect her. That she would really understand when she has her own babies, what I am talking about.

Then she says "Mommy, you don't have to protect me, I still live with you."
