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.

Kayla's 1st Party
Now, she's had birthday parties and she's been to birthday parties of course. But, on January 27th, Kayla will go to the first birthday party for a school friend. She is VERY excited. Me? i was sweating it out a bit at first b/c it falls on a weekend when my parents will actually be away and of course, J has to work. Thankfully, our babysitter is willing to watch Alysa that day.

As is typical for me, I had to call the place where the party will be located to get the details on the details of the party time-frame, where the food is served, etc. Then I called the Mom today and, as I've found to be very typical (except in a few extreme cases with 1 lost close friend and the rest being family), she was more than understanding. She is completely OK with us going to the party, attending the play time part of the party and leaving when the rest of the kids head into the party room to have their pizza and cake. Not only was she understanding, she thanked me for telling her about Kayla's allergy.

Kayla also has a birthday party on January 19th. This Mom, as usual is wonderful and accommodating and is even going to make sure the kids wash their hands after eating the pizza. Alysa is also invited to this party, so my Mom will be joining me in her usual deputized Food Police Office capacity.

As always, it does my heart good to know we have such wonderful friends and that Kayla has others outside our close friends and family that are also willing to look out for her.

that is great that Kayla will be able to attend both of the parties and that both mom's were understanding about the allergies. I'm sure she'll have such a fun time!
