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.

Happy Valentine's Day
So, if you remember, I had opted to try out this year's...


...I got my package today from Random Muse. Perfect timing if you ask me.


Mmmm...delish. I can't wait to dig into the Reese's. I also have to tell everyone, that she was super sweet and from reading my blog and seeing that Kayla has the dairy allergy asked me what she could send me that was safe for her and our household. I was so very touched and I can't even say what it meant to me. Of course, I told her that I was actually looking forward to some "evil" food that I'd have to sneak out of the house and eat when Kayla was not around. :) But still, she included a bag of skittles which is safe for Kayla. So I am very grateful to her for thinking of them.

Now, I had said a little while back that we don't typically celebrate V-Day. And we don't - as you can tell I'm on the computer and J ran out to get a couple odds and ends (soy milk, soy yogurt...). But...the girls and I found these when we came downstairs this morning.


And then, I found a note to go into my office, which was gated off from the girls...

There was also a note attached that he got me some real milk (hidden in the garage fridge). Yum! I had a nice cold glass earlier today and it was so refreshing!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day and a good week. This was another very hectic week and I'm a bit behind on work and the house. So I'll be spending tomorrow playing catch-up. But, will I ever really catch up - that is the question of the day!

I'm glad you got the Muse for the V-Day swap - she is a sweetie (now - she is a sweetie, when we were growing up she was a pain in the neck, or maybe that's just because I'm her big sis.) Very in character for her to think of your girls - we were raised to be considerate and most of the time we make our mother proud!
