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.

Still Going...
What's worse than taking care of 2 kids when one of them is sick? Taking care of 2 kids when BOTH of them are sick. Poor Kayla can't win. Just when she gets over the Virus, she gets the cold Alysa had last weekend. Then today, Alysa decides to sleep in until 8:30! Ordinarily, I'd do a happy dance (now if only both of them could do that on the SAME day). But, she was fussing in her sleep on and off since 5am. So at 8:30 when she started fussing, I went up quietly to check on her. She was laying there looking at me, looking quite miserable. I picked her up and she was quite hot. So now, she has the virus (101.4 fever). So far, she has not been sick (knock on wood). But she's your typical miserably sick baby. Didn't want to eat much for breakfast and was all cuddles. I admit, I enjoy that party. And by 9:30, she was yawning and rubbing her eyes. So I put her upstairs and she was asleep within minutes.

So I have 2 miserable kids and I'm stuck in side all day. Yay! :) And of course, I woke up with a sore throat and cough. Can't beat that, right?

Wish me luck on this long-long day...

Sorry to hear you are having such a rough time. I woke up this morning with a sore throat too. Jason only slept 2 hrs last night because he said that he had bad dreams and monsters where chasing him. Usually when he doesn't sleep that means he's getting sick too. Sounds like we are on parallel paths. Hope you and the girls feel better soon!
