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 […]

I decided to go with the .. each child gets one memory book. I’ll be the first one to admit it… this isn’t my best work. I wanted to get all […]
If you are consistent with your workouts I’m little tiny bit jealous. I’ve always understood the importance of exercise. I’ve experienced the benefits and the feeling after the work out… amazing. So why am I not working out…. Am I lazy or exhausted or both?… I’m gonna go with both Being a full time mom to 5 boys and a full time student is sometimes exhausting. Once the triplets were born I had to pause a lot of things in my life and exercise was one of them. Yes, I move around a lot during the day but that is not exercise… I’ve decided to start from 0. During the triplets pregnancy I lost a lot of muscle mass. For the last couple of days I’ve started my daily routine with this ( https://youtu.be/wPpObC5PnwM ) work out from the momsintofitness YouTube channel. It has been challenging.. I have a long way to go just to get back to my pre pregnancy fitness level. I’m sharing this with all of you because I need to be accountable. I will post some updates on this once a month. I know I will eventually get stronger but right now it feels impossible to achieve my goal.. *Remember to always speak with your health care provider before starting any diet or exercise.
