My name is Jacqueline Laurita. I'm one of the original cast members on Bravo's Reality TV Show, The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I'm a mother of 3. My youngest, Nicolas, he's a loving, beautiful boy, loves to hug and kiss, get tickled, swing, slide, loves music, very picky eater, but he also happens to be 1 in 88. We experienced challenges and joys like any other family. In our family, we celebrate in the little joys that most people take for granted. I remember the first time, you know, Nicolas went to school and, at the beginning, he didn't acknowledge me. He didn't see me when he went into school or came out of school and, for the first time, he connected with me. He turned around. He said, bye, mom. And he went into the school and, when he came out, he said hi to me. And I know it sounds silly but this is the kind of thing that- it's a big deal to our family. You know, I'm calling my husband like our son just said hello to me. He just said goodbye to me and it's a big deal. Being 1 in 88 is not just a number. In our family, it's about celebrating the joys of the accomplishments that our child makes in every single day.
