Southern New Jersey

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.

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I have to Do for Alysa’s Party on Saturday

1. Finalize the grocery list & send J shopping
2. Go back to Costco for more eggs and a case of water
3. Go back to Whole Foods – they did not have enough cake mix
4. Dig out my crock pot
5. Bake the 2 layers for her birthday cake
6. Put together and decorate her Princess-themed cake (with strawberry filling between layers) – I’ll post pics of it when it’s done
7. Boil a bazillion eggs for deviled eggs
8. Move our coffee table out of our family room & make room for the home-made ball pit and our round jumpy thing
9. Put away some of their favorite smaller toys (aka Kayla’s million small Dora figurines) to minimize lost toys & give the kids a bit of breathing room with sharing
10. Make dips for the chips (both dairy-free) onion dip & jalapeño cilantro dip (yummy)
11. Hide the Dancing Frosty (Kayla’s terrified of him) so other kids won’t turn him on
12. Clean the house (my least favorite part of it all)
13. Cook all Saturday morning (again, everything will be dairy-free)

You sound like you are going to be busy!! The cake sounds yummy! I can't wait to see pictures. The part about Kayla being afraid of the dancing Frosty made me laugh. My older son was like that. Good luck getting all your things done.
