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.

FAAW #4: FAAN’ 6th Annual Food Allergy Walk
Unfortunately we have decided to postpone our tip to the Today Show. It’s rainy all day here and will be through tomorrow. Jennifer Hudson will be performing on the Plaza outside the Today Show and between that the rain we don’t think it will be as easy to get the exposure we want. We are pretty bummed since it is Food Allergy Awareness Week, but we are postponing to sometime in August and figure it will coincide with Back to School. I will definitely post it here when the time comes so you can look for me on TV.


Last year, I participated in my first Food Allergy Walk. My Mom, J and Kayla and did the walk and I was able to raise $1,500. It was a great day with lots of food samples and fun games for the kids. It was so exciting for Kayla to be able to eat the food that was offered. I also made some great contacts there for future reference. This year’s walk will be on Halloween. This year we will also be joined by Alysa and my Dad. I have also volunteered on the Walk Committee to help organize the day’s events. I’m excited to be a part of the planning stages and am looking forward to the walk itself. Since the Walk for our area falls on Halloween we will be having safe trick-or-treating with non-food treats so trick-or-treating will be safe for all kids. You can click on the button above (which is also in my sidebar) to see my walk site.

For those reading, if you have any food allergy questions for me. About how we deal or cope or on food allergies in general, post a comment and I’d be happy to answer them for you.

Do you guys go out to eat much? If so how does that whole process work for you? Do you have to talk to the chef beforehand?

I'm trying to think of other questions, but you do a pretty good job of explaining the day to day life of living with allergies already!
