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.

Things I'm grateful for...
As I pack up to drive out to visit my Big Sis, I wanted to list a few things I am thankful for.

I am grateful for a Sister who:

...along with her entire family, eats dairy-free for the duration of our stay;
...stops giving her kids dairy snacks/food outside the kitchen for at least a week before we arrive;
...stops bringing dairy snacks (aka evil gold fish) into her car for a week before we arrive;
...vacuums out her car before we arrive so no traces of the evil fish trail into her home;
...cleans not only her kitchen, but her microwave and other appliances;
...cleans her fridge, makes an entire shelf dairy-free and cleans the outside of her jars of food in the fridge to minimize cross-contamination risks;
...washes her floors, chairs, door knobs and other surfaces;
...cleans the kids' toys to the best of her ability;
...vacuums the floors, couch and each and every couch cushion and pillow;
...puts away her dairy-containing shampoos so they are not used accidentally;
...is willing to open brandy new packages of food she already has opened so that nothing will be cross-contaminated when we eat there (i.e. cereals, ketchup, mayo, etc.);
...ships her kids off to the babysitter's house the day before we arrive so she can spend the day cleaning her house from top to bottom;
...all this to keep one very special little girl safe!

Thanks Chris! You're the best!!! Can't wait to see you tomorrow!
