Kids & Winter Part 3

Hello Everyone Today I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned when it comes to snow pants. Babies and toddlers don’t need to wear snow pants or suits unless you are going for a walk, playing in the snow or spending time outdoors. I have not bought the triplets snow pants, they are not practical at the moment so I just decided to forgo that purchase. There are two types of snow pants I prefer. The first one is with straps for toddler and up to 7 year old. The second one is just the ones you button at the waist. My 8 year old (soon to be 9) has not wear his snow pants this winter so far. My preferred brand for snow pants is Carters Oshkosh because they sale the snow pants and jacket as a bundle. Make sure the snow pants are warm but light weight! If is not too cold outside I’ve used water proof sweatpants on top of the regular sweatpants When I had my first child, I bought him an adorable Winnie The Pooh snow suit… he wore it once and my second child wore it twice. With my second child I spent $100 on a snow suit … he wore it once and the triplets wore it once each… I know we are tempted to buy our bundles the best but sometimes we get carried away and end up with staff that becomes useless. I […]

Social Media… mistake

Hello Everyone! Today I was going through my social media ( follow me on Instagram @ journeysandus7).. and I found a picture that wasn’t supposed to be posted 🤦🏻‍♀️… On Tuesday I gave a bath to the triplets and I snapped a few pictures to send to my husband. Somehow.. unknowingly.. I posted a picture of the triplets… One of them.. was naked..😳 it was the full frontal picture. When I saw that I freaked out because unfortunately there are some people that see kids in a sexual manner…. I took it down immediately and I hope, not many people saw it or saved it. Has anyone done something like this before? It was the first time I did it… I hope you continue to have a wonderful Thursday!

I see a parent whose kid is on the […]

Christmas Eve

December 24 is finally upon us. Today is one of the most important days of the year in our home. As Christians we are celebrating the birth of Jesus. Today is also a day to celebrate family. I grew up (10 years) in Colombia and Christmas Eve is a huge deal. People party all night. The kids get to open their presents at 12 a.m. and there are fireworks. Once we came to Canada there were some changes in our Christmas traditions. Then when hubby and I started celebrating Christmas we started our own traditions… The food: Our Christmas Eve dinner consists of Colombia food, we get some Indian food, some Chinese Hakka, pizza and chocolate cake. The date: We decided to have Christmas dinner on the 24th and the 25th is dedicated to watching movies. The gifts: Our kids are small, so we’ve decided to open the gifts by 9:00 p.m. Hubby and I will be getting 1 gift each while the kids get 2 each. The music: We will listen to some Christmas songs and Pitbull’s radio station. The radio station is a good compromise… he likes hip hop and I like Latinx music. The attendees: This year we’ve decided to not invite anyone over. Its 8:54 p.m. … the kids have opened their presents and they are all in bed. I’m tired … I’ll be going to bed soon. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas y Feliz […]
