The Infante Family

What is your favorite family tradition?

Going out to our families ranch and spending the weekend with my husband and 2 boys doing absolutely nothing but hanging out by the lake fishing and telling stories!

Having family over for a BBQ is a big deal for us. Any achievement, anniversary, birthday or just family time is a big in our family!! We seriously will make a "Party" out of anything like if its Wednesday we will do a "Yay its Wednesday, It's Almost Friday, You got this BBQ." At our ranch, Sitting by the fire with some nice Texas Country music on play, telling stories of either the past or present is a what our family tradition is all about.

Tell us about your favorite family story.

When we completed our family puzzle! The day my second son was born! We never knew a piece was even missing until that day, now our puzzle is complete.

When my son was little he always asked for a baby brother and of course me being the mother wanting to give everything to her child I wasn't quite ready because of course I wanted him to enjoy being a baby and not having to grow up faster because there was now another baby to care for.

When he was 4 we decided it was time to make "The Boy" (what our whole family calls him) a big brother now but it took almost 2 years of trying to finally be able to say were having a baby. He was so excited to be a big brother and took care of me the whole 10 months that I was pregnant.

The day we had his brother I couldn't wait to see The Boy's reaction to how cute and small his baby brother was and let me just say the reaction on his face when he walked in that door just blew me away and instantly I was overwhelmed with Happy Tears!! Now our family puzzle is complete and The Boy is the best big brother ever!!!!!!

In one short phrase or sentence, what is your family's motto?

Que sera sera, whatever will be will be

I've learned that its okay to make mistakes not every one is perfect. Even though as parents you want for everything to be perfect but lets be real guys YOU CANT!!!

Tell us about your funniest parenting story (we all have them!) :

Being that I'm a full time mommy and also work full time at our local hospital, I'm a mom who's always on the go. When my oldest was a baby we were running late for daycare/work in the morning and right before we walked out the door my son had a "Blow Out" like everywhere and BAAAAAD so of course I went back changed his diaper and grabbed it to throw it out in the trashcan on the way out to the car, since it was trash day, realizing at the same time I forgot my lunch, made a quick sandwich grabbed a bag of chips and grabbed my lunch bag and threw it all in. 15

You are my Sonshine's later we made it to daycare and off to work I go of course just a little late. Forgetting my coffee and breakfast bar I was absolutely starving so when it was lunch time I grabbed my lunch bag from my desk since it was just a sandwich i decided not to put it in the fridge.

By the time I got to the break room we noticed there was a "fomenting" smell coming for somewhere but we couldn't figure out from where and BAMM i thought to myself Did I throw out the diaper on the way out this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!

Without telling anyone I looked into my super cute vera bradley lunch bag and there it was a huge Nasty Blow Out diaper from this morning in between my yummy sandwich and chips. I slowly closed up the bag and walked right out the door to our outside parking lot where i chunked that cute vera bradley lunch bag into the trash and never spoke of the fomenting diaper that stunk up the break room again!!!!!!!
