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.

Making Daddy proud
Lately, I've been hearing about the secret playground that Daddy takes them to. No I had no clue where this playground was and I was perfectly happy to take them to the little one by our house. But the girls are playground hoppers - they love to switch it up. And lucky for us we have quite a few small playgrounds around us which means no craziness in keeping track of them with only one of us with them.

So last Wednesday, when I picked Kayla up from school, she asked to go to the secret playground. I told her I did not know where it was. On our way to pick Alysa up at the babysitter's, we passed by a road and Kayla yelled out - "That's it Mommy. That's where the secret playground is. That is the road Daddy takes!"

So after I picked up Alysa, I backtracked and took that road. From that road, she told me where to turn and took me directly to this secret playground. I will admit, I was quite impressed with her ability to give me directions. Is it normal to get driving directions from a 4 year old? :)

Unfortunately, we were unable to stay and play there, because there is a reason it is a secret playground. It is in a development, but it set way back from the street with a somewhat "narrow" opening through trees. Then there is large tennis court in a clearing and then quite aways behind the tennis court is the playground. The playground is pretty secluded. As I was walking them back to the playground, I saw there was a man just sitting on the playground with no one else with him. It made me very uncomfortable. What is a grown man doing on the playground (that is close by to a school) by himself? With it being so secluded, it gave me a bad vibe and I decided it would not be on the safe side to take the kids back there by myself. Kayla was quite devestated, but luckily calmed down enought enjoy the little playgound (aka LP) for a bit.

J was very impressed with his Big Girl!

That's so funny (the Kayla navigating, not the weirdo on the playground)!
