The same...but very different

 Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  As I was at the bookstore this week picking out magazines for my boys for their treat boxes, I thought about how unique each one of them was.  I very clearly remember being pregnant with Christopher, and all the comments that generated from other people (a lot of them not very nice--let's just leave it at that!).  One of the ones that I heard was along the lines of having another boy and how that would just be more of the same thing.  That couldn't be any further from the truth!  Yes they are all boys, both they are quite different in their personalities.

The magazines I picked out for them (we are going on a trip tomorrow so I got it for them to take on the plane) reflect perfectly the differences in their personalities.  The History magazine is for Zach, my news watching teen who loves history and wants to be a politician.  Mad magazine for my social, could care less about school pre teen Joey.  The Us magazine, Olympics edition is for Vinny, who has been GLUED to the Olympics every night, fascinated by all the athletes (he even watched the entire opening ceremony, with the parade of athletes, long after we had all fallen asleep in front of it).  And for Christopher, the precocious baby of the family, Simpsons and SpongeBob comic books.

They also got their traditional heart shaped pancakes,  heart shaped pizza 

and by request from Christopher, a heart shaped brownie cake!

Happy Valentine's Day Contini boys!  I love each and every thing about each one of you.

I was just telling a friend how amazing my two boys are. I couldn't agree more with your comment. it's nice to recognize their unique personalities and embrace their differences.

Hope you have a great trip. I totally forgot it was ski time.
