Southern New Jersey

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.

Onward & Upward
In the spirit of moving forward past all the negativity. I figured it was a good time to post some fun and exciting things.

My Sister was recently hit with the remnants of Ike and lost power. Now I know that is not fun or upbeat. But since she was told today that she would not have powered restored until Sunday night at midnight, she decided to pack up the kids and drive to New Jersey for a visit. My brother-in-law will stay home in the dark and quiet for work and I get to see my Sister and my niece and nephews. I am so excited and Kayla is beside herself. She keeps looking out the window saying, “My cousins are here.” It’s going to be a fun few days here, although I know it will go by way too quickly.

I got an award a week or so ago from Christine. She named me as one of her favorite blogs. It really made my day.

I can’t even remember exactly how long I’ve been reading Christine’s blog but it’s been quite a while. She’s always upbeat and can make me smile when I’m having a bad day. We share a love of digi scrapping and we can relate to the struggles of keeping our kids safe (her son has diabetes). There are similarities in what is needed of the school staff etc. So we can relate on that level as well. Thanks for the award Christine!

Thank you so much Sue! Your blog looks beautiful as do your girls! I can not believe the story from the birthday party. If I knew that a child who may come into contact with my child could be in danger I would bend over backwards to do anything to help. Some people really are rude and ignorant. I hope the next party you go to will cause you a lot less stress :)
