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.

More Halloween Fun
You can read about Kayla's school party here.

Last night I took Kayla to Borders for a Halloween party. We met my gf and her son, Seth there. Of course I called ahead of time to find out if food would be a part of it (I always like to know what to expect). I was told no, which I was thrilled about. They read some halloween books and the guy put on a scary mask which Kayla did not like at all! They also did a costume parade and "trick or treated" at the front counter. I tried to get Kayla to bypass the basket of chocolate, but she wanted it so bad. It was all individually wrapped, so I let her grab one and took it away right away. Now I have a Butterfinger to eat - yum! :)

Of course one little girl insisted on eating hers at the next book reading. Luckily, when she was done, the Mom was looking for a tissue, which gave me the perfect opening for "I have wipes". She was very appreciative - if she only knew. ;) Then when they were painting their little pumpkins, the guy said, he was going to get the brownies - groan, groan, triple groan!!! I had nothing similar to offer Kayla, plus brownie crumbs get everywhere. And of course he put them in the middle of the floor. Then he put the markers and paper right next to them. Kayla, of course, HAD To color. He was great when I asked if he could move the brownies. He was downright apologetic when I explained that she'll react by touch. So they were very nice. We left shortly after that so the crumbs were not a huge issue. We spent an hour there and Kayla had fun. Of course, I have pictures.

I'm hoping the chocolate and candy overpowers her fear of the kids and adults in costume. We shall see on Wednesday...

Very cute! It just stinks that food has to be a part of everything. We took the boys to boo at the zoo tonight and of course it was an issue. Not a big one, but it could have been. We were waiting in line for the train and the family in front of us was eating hot pretzels and of course their little boy wanted to play with and touch Jason. I think they thought we were weird because we kept yelling NO at Jason when he'd get near their kid.
Then they had someone dressed up at the Energizer Bunny and he gave Jason a drum stick to beat his drum and I noticed the boy who had it before Jason was eating part of a funnel cake. Poor Jason was wiped down 100 times tonight. Luckily it was reaction free but not without stress.

Glad to hear the party was lots of fun and everything went so well.

Kayla makes an adorable mermaid, and it's nice to see a face to put with the blog. You two look beautiful.

Happy Halloween!!
