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.

Recent Kayla'isms
Wednesday, I took the girls to a playground nearby where we were meeting up with a Mom and her son from my support group. We got their first and there were 2 Moms and 5 kids already there. No big deal except 4 of them were boys - older-bigger boys and very rambunctious. They were running up and down the slides - (not moving out of the way when Kayla wanted to go down), jumping on the moveable bridge and just all over the place. Did I mention the other Moms were ignoring all of this? Anyway, Kayla really didn't care - it didn't phase her. But Alysa, she was terrified. She clung to me and refused to go play. So finally, Kayla tired of playing without her sister, came over to Alysa and asked her to go play with her on the play ground. I told Kayla that Alysa was scared and wanted to stay with me. Kayla went right up to a couple of the boys and said, "Stop it. You're scaring my sister. You're upsetting her!" That's my daredevil - no fear. Thankfully they left shortly after that so Alysa could play. :)

I am still driving my In-Law's Durango, as J is almost done replacing the transmission on his car. So, on the way to school today, Kayla asked me again, if I liked their car. I told her that I didn't and that I missed my car. She asked if I liked Daddy's car. I told her yes. She said she liked her car. So I asked her which car was hers. She replied, "Um, I don't really have one."

Yesterday, Kayla made a "Q" book at school. It is a little square book of pictures that begin with Q and she colored all the pictures. She was so proud of it yesterday and even read it to Alysa has her nap-time book. So when I picked up her up from school today, the first thing she told me was that she made something for Alysa. When I looked in her backpack, she had made Alysa a "Q" book so now they both had one. I was touched by how sweet she was.

So hopefully J's car will be fixed tonight. He says he only has to adjust a few things on the gears. My fingers are crossed - I want my car back. I only get to drive it now the days I work. I miss my automatic, push button sliding doors. I miss Kayla's booster seat where she can get out of the car all by herself and I miss my gas mileage.

We have a low-key weekend ahead. My parents will be coming down but other than that, we have a project to do for Kayla's school. We have to put together her Giant Panda Diorama. Should be fun - if I can get her to sit still long enough. I'll post a picture when it's done.

But for now, I must head up to bed. I'm quite exhausted.
