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.

Amazing wonders
Today, friends of ours came over and we got some PF Chang's take-out. The only meat Alysa will readily eat are their Northern Style Spare Ribs (Kayla loves these too). So I got those and some Crispy Honey Chicken. At lunch, Kayla actually tried the chicken and ate a few bites. Tonight at dinner (I love left-overs), the girls had their ribs and Kayla devoured quite a bit of my chicken. I nearly fell out of my seat when Alysa asked to try a bite. Not only did she ask to try a bite, but she ate 3 bites of chicken (this is really a lot for her - especially where meat is concerned). All so she could use their kid's chop sticks. I've got to save those chop sticks for every meal. Happy days! So she actually got some meat in her tonight. Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!

Back to the craziness...I can't wait to have more time on my hands...

I want more time too! I'm glad that Alysa tried the chicken - that is awesome!

Right before you posted this I tried to email you a pic of a bowl and chopsticks set I ordered for my kids from williams sonoma on sale. I just thought it looked like something you would like. I couldn't email the pic for some reason so I was just going to tell you when we spoke. So funny you posted this because my kids eat better just because they are using the fun chopsticks too!
