I would like to recommend a wonderful book written by moms of Higher Order Multiples, one of them being a friend of mine, Patricia Harber, who has 15 year old triplets!: "Finding Our Way - Life with Triplets, Quadruplets and Quintuplets - a Collection of Experiences" Edited by Suzanne Lyons, Foreword by Cecile Dionne - one of the famous Dionne Quintuplets. It is a valuable, comprehensive collecti...on of short stories about life with higher-order multiples, starting from pregnancy and continuing into adulthood. It has excellent advice from parents who have lived through what we have all lived through OR are going to live through at some point and even some input from health care professionals who work with multiples! I LOVED this book and highly recommend it to not only experienced HOM mommies but also to expectant or new mommies of multiples! It is being sold online at the link below for $25 CAD but I just came back from the Multiple Births of Canada National Conference and they have asked me to offer it to all my multiples mommies for $15 CAD plus shipping! A great deal for a GREAT book! Please contact me at bramptonmultiples@multiplebirthscanada.org  if you would like to purchase a copy and I will arrange it for you....thanks for reading guys! Take care and Happy Reading :)

Apple Picking Reminder!!

What beautiful weather we are getting today!  It's supposed to be sunny and warm tomorrow morning too – so come out and enjoy the weather going Apple Picking with The Twins Plus Association of Brampton at the Dixie Orchards.
Tomorrow morning bring your family and friends and come spend a couple of hours letting the kids discover and enjoy the Apple Orchards! 
In order for the kids to have FREE full access to the Pumpkin Patch, do a little Straw Jumping or find their way out of the Corn Maze, each family has to spend a minimum of $10 on food from the farm whether it be fresh picked apples or something from the market...
Dixie Orchards opens at 10 am but the owner has told me that we should get there a little earlier on a Saturday and beat the crowds - and if he see there's a line up before 10 – he usually opens the doors early!
Look for me or Kerry with our families at the front entrance – you won't be able to miss me with our triplet choo-choo wagon! 

We hope to see many of you there!!!
