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.

Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW)

Welcome to 2009’s Food Allergy Awareness Week. My first post for the week is a post of links to my FAAW posts from 2 years ago. They are a mix of some informational posts I did that year to help educate those on food allergies as well as some insight into our life with Kayla’s food allergy.. Hopefully it will be a good refresher for some and a good resource for any new to my blog.

I will have some other posts coming on food allergies – what I am up to this week and how things have changed for us since Kayla was first diagnosed. I also have some full disclosure coming up as well as an exciting trip I have planned for later in the week with regards to food allergies!

For my fellow Food Allergy Moms – what are you doing this week?

And for those not directly impacted (by a child or family member): anyone can help spread the word on food allergies – no informational tidbit is too small. I know my personal friends have taken what they have learned through me and applied it to their lives. A perfect example is a very good friend of mine who lives in Texas. Because of what she has witnessed through me, she asks new friends of her children if they have any dietary restrictions and always checks before bringing food into their respective classrooms. Will you or have you helped to educate those around you? If so, please tell me, I’d love to hear about it.

I asked people what they want me to write about. :) And I'm doing the FA Twitter party on Friday.

Ah Food Allergies -

I've relaxed with Sugar, we're pretty sure she's not allergic to anything at this point. But I've already started thinking about it again with Baby Boy almost here!

Thanks for these very informative and helpful posts!
