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.

Pssst...I got an Award!

Thank you Christine for passing this fun award on to me. It was nice to see that I was loved, especially after the week I've had (did I mention that Kayla now has a major ear infection?). I'm going to pass this award on to a couple people who always brighten my day.




Second, Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and although I can't say we celebrate this holiday very much (aside from the fact that it's also my Mom's birthday), I've decided it would be fun to participate this year in Kailani’s Valentine’s Day Goody Swap! I've seen these in the past, but usually after everyone's gotten their goody bags. So this year, I'm jumping in!


Here are some answers to a questionnaire she posted on her blog.

What is your idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day?
* A nice dinner out of the house and maybe a night at a Bed & Breakfast so we can sleep in the next day! I'd even take the kids having a sleep-over at my Parents' house.

In reality, what is your Valentine’s Day really like?
* A normal night at home. It's on a Thursday this year, which means J will get home from work at 7 in time to tuck the kids in. We'll maybe have dinner together, if I don't eat with the girls and we'll crash early b/c we're too exhausted to stay up past 9pm. LOL

If you could have a lifetime supply of your favorite sweet indulgence, what would it be?
*I'd say either Reese's Peanut Butter Cups or Butter Crunch from an amazing chocolate place by my Parents' house.

Is there any sweet treat you absolutely do not like?
*Black liquorice, dark chocolate.

If you fell into a pool of chocolate, how would you get out?
*Not sure. Probably swim my way out and drink some up on the way! Then of course, since my daughter is allergic to dairy, I'd hope it was dairy-free dark chocolate and if not, I'd have to be thoroughly hosed down and burn my clothes before heading home. :)

If you're interested in joining in, hop on over to Kailani’s to check it out.

Hey thanks for the award! I'm honored :) And thanks for the peanut e-mail from Disney. I didn't get a chance to respond by e-mail (I was buying curtains today. Who knew that took ALL DAY?). Have a great evening!!
