My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

I've Been Tagged?
Well, I got a phone call from my sister today wondering why I never responded to my "Tag". I was baffled. She said that it's a Blogging thing and that a couple posts ago, she "tagged" me. I told her I'd check it out. Later, I rememberd that I had been checking her blog and found it odd that she hadn't posted in a few days. Well, I'm having some technical difficulties Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting with this whole blogging thing. Netscape was not updating my own blog - I had to use Explorer. Well, now, apparently, Netscape is not updating my sister's either. Which is why I never saw this "Tag". So here is my attempt.

What do you like most about where you live?

I live in Southern New Jersey - about 15 miles East of Philadelphia. I grew up in the country on 2 acres, across from a farm - so it's a change for me. I am not a city girl and even find development living difficult at times. But I have to say, I love my street. We got the deal of a lifetime on a great house on a cul-de-sac. We have a great environment for our girls to play in as they get older. We couldn't ask for better neighbors (I even work for one of them). We help them, they help us. We get along. It's really nice. Unfortunately, all their kids are grown - teenagers and older, but you can't have everything. :) And there is a lot to do around here. There is every store known to man somewhere within a 10 mile radius and we are 15 minutes from Philly and less than 1.5 hours from The City (NYC).

Is there anything strange about where you live?

Hmmm…I would have to say how bad the roads crews are around here. They hardly ever patch the roads and when they do, it’s horribly done. And when it snows – forget it. They plow enough to get one lane through on a 4 lane road. And they never go back to plow the rest of the road. So as people go back to work, turn lanes and 2nd lanes are blocked which causes a traffic nightmare. Not sure why they do that – but it’s very frustrating…

What's one of your all-time favorite music albums, and why?

Billy Joel. I have his box set – I got it when I was taking DH to see him in concert many years ago. He has great music and it stands the test of time.

Did you have a passion for something as a kid that you still have now? (If not- what is one of your passions now?)

I’m not really sure you would call it a passion, but I have always been into technology and computers. I got my first computer as a Freshman in high school and still love to be on it. I’d rather type than write (which is part of the reason my handwriting stinks). I love to make things on the computer and wish I had the time and money to do so much more than I do. But I have my pictures and even sound clips of my girls on there. It’s also a release for me.
Another would be children. I have loved kids since I can remember. That has stuck with me and motivated me to do whatever it took to become a Mom.

What do you like most about having a blog?

That’s a tough one since I’m very new to this blog thing. I’ve been a part of the bulletin board scene for a while and hope that with time, I become as comfortable here as I have there. But so far it’s nice to have place to put down my thoughts, even the random ones. I’ve never been one for journals, so we’ll see how long it lasts. LOL

Let’s see…I don’t really have anyone to tag at this point as I’m just getting acquainted here.

So I’ll Tag anyone who reads this…
