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.

Disney Day 2
Our second day of Disney brought our first Disney meal. We had an early morning breakfast booked with the Princesses in Cinderella’s Castle. Because we had 14 people, we had two tables, so my Sis and her family ate at one with all the dairy they wanted. We, along with my parents ate a dairy-free table. When I arrived, they already had it marked in the computer that we were dairy-free. The chef came out to talk to us and go over the alternatives to their menu. We were able to eat fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs and dairy-free-gluten-free waffles and soy and rice milk. He also surprised us and brought out some dairy-free muffins. The waffles left a lot to be desired since they were lacking wheat, but the rest was delicious! They even brought us a brandy new stick of Fleischman’s Unsalted Margarine to be used on our waffles. I was very concerned about this meal because of the princess being around the other meals since Kayla is contact-reactive. But each princess was very gracious and accommodating when I explained our situation and kindly asked them to wash their hands (as I handed them each a wipe). The meal went off without a hitch and the girls enjoyed their food as did the rest of us. Kayla was in her glory meeting the princesses and it was a complete success.

After breakfast, we posed for some photo ops outside the castle before piling on the monorail headed for Epcot. We were able to do a couple things at Epcot before Kayla came down with the fever that hit Alysa the day before. The one they absolutely loved was Figment. The kids also found the sprinklers a ton of fun. J ended up taking Kayla back to the apartment because she just wanted to go to bed. My Sister, my Mom and I took Colin and Alysa on Nemo’s ride and got to watch a diver demonstration and check out a bunch of fish. Alysa had a bit of a crush on the diver, which was pretty cute. It poured that afternoon which stunk, but luckily it wasn’t until close to the end of the day. I did “take advantage” of Kayla being away and treated Alysa to a soft pretzel and some real ice cream. She was in heaven and so was Colin.
