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.

Bad Mommy
Kayla's teacher sent a note home on Monday to let me know there is a birthday party at school today. Last night I put a cup-a-cake container on my counter as a reminder. But of course as I'm pulling out of the parking lot leaving the school I remembered. The empty container was still on my counter. I went back to talk to the teacher assistant. Instead of me driving back, we decided Kayla would eat her cookies - which are in her safe snack box for just this sort of situation. The party was actually going to be first thing in the morning so the other parents could be there since they work. So she wasn't sure when the cupcakes would be eaten.

I just feel awful though and I hope Kayla's not too upset about the cupcake. I'm hoping she's excited to be eating cookies before lunch. :)

In some other news - there may be hope for Kayla's thumb sucking. More frequently now she's telling me "I don't want to suck my thumb." This morning she said she didn't want to suck her thumb at school. So I'm hopeful there may be a light at the end of that tunnel. But...she's started to bite her nails - so we may be trading one bad habit for another. *sigh*

I did the very same thing w/ my cup a cake case. Forgot.

I just recently got Gabe to quit biting himself / sucking his fingers/ licking his hands. It was easier than I thought it woudl be. We came up w/ a code word, "hands". And I was more stern than I wanted to be. But w/in days, he quit. And hasn't started back up.

I love the cup a cake case!

I forgot Claires lunch last year! Luckily we knew enough people on staff that they compiled a lunch for my poor child!

ugh Kayla bites her nails too! She'll go through periods where she doesn't do it for weeks, but then it starts up again, drives me crazy!
