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.

Must be doing something right
*I apologize for not being able to keep up lately. This month has been pure chaos with one thing after the other.*

Yesterday, Alysa was eating a little bag of pretzels in the car in between errands. She then piped up from the back seat:

Alysa - "Mommy, these pretzels are safe for Kayla."
Me - "Yes, honey they are."
Alysa - "I'm going to read the ingredients to make sure they are safe".

When I looked in the back seat, this is what I saw (please note I took this photo while stopped at a light) :)

In other happenings, I had a nice little trip up to Rhode Island with my Mom last weekend. My Dad watched the girls for me since J was working. We drove up Friday night and arrived around 9:30. Saturday we got up and had a lazy dairy-filled breakfast. I don't remember the last time I had eggs with cheese! Boy was it delicious. Then we went to the mall with my Aunt and cousins (18 & 21) for some shopping before we had a yummy dinner (again filled with dairy). We came home Sunday to 2 girls who missed me tons. Just another part I love about being a Mom - the unconditional love. I had a great time, but missed them so much. Kayla, as usual had fun with my Dad, but each time she talked to me got all whiny with the "Are you coming home now?" and "I miss you Mommy."

This coming Saturday is my last trip for a while (for a few weeks anyway when I head out to Ohio after Easter). I am heading down to Baltimore for FAAN's Annual Food Allergy Conference. I'm going with a friend of mine who I met in my support group. I've been anxiously waiting for this trip and can not wait to go. My friend's daughter is in 2nd grade and is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. Her and I get along really well and have a bit too much in common. Both our husbands are Cancer survivors, her and I both battled Infertility (we even used the same doctor) and our daughters have a food allergy. The conference is from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. It will be a long day and even longer since we're driving there and back in 1 day. We'll be leaving my house bright and early at 5:30 am. I would go to bed now if I could get away with it. I'm always looking for more information and ways to teach others about food allergies and I'm expecting to get so much out of the conference.

I will definitely find the time after to post what I learn here. I have more to share and other happenings, but...I must get a few things done around here. Blogging is not the only thing that I've been behind on.
