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.

Thanks to Janeen, I was able to get the girls real Easter candy for their Easter Baskets this year. Yes, I can find dairy-free dark chocolate pretty easily. Of course, eliminating the cross-contamination risk in the chocolate is a bit trickier. But it can be done. But I have not been able to find anyone that sells dairy-free and cross-contamination-free chocolate bunnies. Of course, at 2 1/2 Kayla knows no different and the same goes for Alysa at 15 months. But...Kayla loves chocolate. So, when I saw Janeen post the website for Chocolate Emporium I was so excited. Their chocolates are all dairy-free. So, a week and a half ago, I ordered the girls their Easter bunnies, foil wrapped chocolate eggs and jelly beans. I also got some white chocolate bunny lollipops. I tried one - yummy! Now my girls will have delicious and traditional Easter Baskets. I know the chocolate bunny will make Kayla's day. Not sure about Alysa yet...

Here is what I got.

And of course, as all things for Kayla, these were not cheap. The chocolate was $20 and shipping added another $10. Good thing I love my girls. :)

Yea! Glad you got it. I have to call them today when Jason naps to put in my order so I can pick it up on Monday. I love them. It's so nice to have something for him for every holiday that is like what every one else has. Thank you Chocolate Emporium!!

I'd pay $30 for some good chocolate! Yum!

Good for you! We have entirely avoided the whole Easter problem by pretending that the holiday doesn't exist. Which is not a long-term plan, to be sure. But I get hives myself when I think of the possibility of finding/confirming/verifying the existence of dairy, peanut, or tree nut free candies.

They're around, but they aren't easy to find.

Therefore, we avoid all worships, celebrations, parties, etc. (Again, this is neither a long term nor a particularly healthy way of coping, but it's what we have right now!)

Glad to hear you're doing something different! :)
