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.

A glimpse into her day
This year has not been much different from last. Kayla is very tight-lipped about her time at school. Even when I ask specific questions, I get "I did nothing". Hmmm...I can see that is money well spent.

Tonight, I sat down with Kayla to have her go through the huge pile of books on, under and around her end table. I've begun to purge in preparation for Christmas, so the first step is to get some of the books back downstairs. She helped me choose what would go down and what would stay up. Then for some, she said it had to go in the basket next to her chair for her class. She said her class was "over there" pointing to her chair. I asked her if she was the teacher and she said yes. I just smiled as it brought back memories of playing school when I was a child.

So then, as we're cleaning up, she proceeded to tell her one student that she was bothering another and to stop whatever it was she was doing. Then she sat in her chair and started reading one of her books. She was showing the pictures to them and everything. Then J and I sat down in her class along with Alysa. She proceeded to read the story to us and then she went through the whole thing of showing us how to do one of her work activities (in Montessori, they call it work instead of playtime). She got her mat and her material and showed us how to poor water. She had us do work and then rang the bell signaling that class was over. It was so cute and I just sat back and enjoyed the show. It was awesome to finally see a glimpse into her day through her eyes. I am going to love this stage!

she may not want to talk about her day, but she sure showed you in role-playing!

I used to love playing "teacher" too LOL
