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.

How Easy to Forget
...just how much a skinned knee HURTS! I fell today when I was outside with the girls. Alysa had to go potty so I made a mad dash to get inside with her and I fumbled and tripped and fell flat on my face! Thankfully no one saw this oh-so-graceful tumble. But I skinned my knees - both of them. Pretty bad too. So then I do what any good Mommy does, I helped Alysa in the bathroom and then I went and put antiseptic on it. All I could think when I did that was, "I do this to my kids?" That stuff stings!!! Then I had a hard time finding band aids large enough. I had to go the 1st aid kit in the car and still only got one large bandaid, so I had to use 2 smaller ones for my one knee. I guess I have to go shopping. And then b/c I needed some breathing room to let the sting calm down a bit, I put Snow White on. ;)

I sure hope it's a very long time before I do anything that painful or embarassing again.

Am I a catch or what?

But in better news, we went earlier today to a new friend of Kayla's for a playdate. Emma is in her gymnastics class and when we went a couple weeks ago (the last class of the summer) and they ran over to hug each other and Kayla told her she missed her, I took it as my cue to get them together. The kids had a blast and her Mom was very sweet and understanding with the food allergy thing. Always a plus for both Kayla and myself. She also wants Kayla to come to her birthday party in September and is asking questions about how to be able to have Kayla there. Kayla didn't want to come home today but Alysa was getting unruly she was so tired. It was a great day all around and I hope to be seeing more of them.

How great that other mom is understanding.

Love the new look!

At least no one saw you, that would be what would save me from the thought of it all.
