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.

Mothers Day 2009

Is it 2009 already?
Seriously - where is the time going? I know it's only Jan 3rd, but I feel like I'm in such a fog with all I've done and am still doing. November and December was a blur with trips, Thanksgiving, Alysa's birthday and party, Christmas and New Year's. I feel like I'm in perpetual party planning mode. The last will be tomorrow when I have J's birthday dinner. Thankfully it will be low key, but part of me can't wait until it's over. I have so much to organize and get together right now, I'm pretty overwhelmed. And the kids...have forgotten to be good for Santa. I have a whole year until I can use Santa again? Geez. They are fighting, fighting, fighting. Part of it, I believe is Alysa getting worse with her exhaustion. It's seriously out of control. March 4th can not get here soon enough.

At least I can say that the house is back to normal. The tree and other decorations are down for the most part and all new toys have a home.

What I dread the most at this point is Monday. Kayla has been off from school for 2 weeks and I know she will have a hard time being woken up Monday at 7:15 am. She's been enjoying sleeping until 8:30/9am. The past few days she's come into bed with me at 7:30 only to go back to sleep with me until 9. I guess I'll be thankful that Monday, I'll be leaving for work when J is getting her up for school. Happy Birthday to him!

I will try to not be completely MIA the next couple of weeks, but it will be pretty hectic around here. And from the looks of the rest of blog-land, I can see I'm not the only one who's busy. Good to know I'm not alone.

I hope everyone had a fun New Year's!

Good luck today! I've been MIA lately too. There is just too much going on. I hope to get my act together soon, but don't bet on it :)
