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.

Beware of Jalapenos
With Kayla’s party this past weekend, my Sister, Mom and I spent the entire day Friday cooking. Friday night when she was back at my Mom’s, my Sister put together my new recipe for Watermelon Salsa (full party details and menu with recipes to follow). In this recipe are fresh jalapenos cut up. She did this and had problems with her hands burning from the juice. She had to throw out her contacts that night and even the next morning, had burning in her eyes when she put new ones in and had to throw those away also. In the midst of this, she had to find a way to neutralize the oils from the jalapenos because it obviously does not wash off easily. So she did what most of us do nowadays – search the internet. And what she found was that you should rinse your hands in rubbing alcohol and then soak them in DAIRY!!!

So my wonderful big Sis suffered in silence so as to not contaminate herself for Kayla’s party and food prep.

Send her a hug from me. Soak your hands in dairy? I've never heard of that, but I'll keep it in mind. We're growing jalapeno's in the back yard ;)

Yup, it's the casein in any dairy product that neutralizes the burn!! Amazing...and it gave us all a good laugh. It took a full 36 hours or so to get rid of the burn completely. Anything for Kayla!!
