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.

3 1/2 year old math
In so many ways Alysa is just your typical 3 year old - perfectly on schedule, not ahead nor behind. In other ways, she seems, to me at least, a head of her "age group". Or at least she's ahead of where Kayla was at her age - and Kayla was pretty "on target" or "in range".

The girls have spent this weekend at my parents' house giving me a blissful weekend to myself to relax and spend time with friends. I can't say I've been the most productive (which I'm sure I'll regret later this week), but I slept in, had two fun, girls' nights out and ate lots of dairy!

Friday on my way to drop the girls off, I had two errands to run first. When we left our house I told the girls I had to make two stops before we went to Nanny's. So we went to our first stop and as we were leaving I told them we had one more stop left. While driving, I had this surprising conversation with Alsya.

Alysa - "Mommy, we have 2 more stops left."
Me - "No, Alysa - we have 1 more stop. We had two stops, we went to one and have one left.
Alysa - "No Mommy, we have 2 left. We had three stops. Nanny's house is the third and we went to one so we have two left."
Me - "Wow. You're right Alysa."

She totally blew me away with her math. And when I looked back at her she was sitting there with her index and middle finger up counting down our stops. The funniest part is when we got to the 2nd stop, she put her index finger down, got out of the car and walked all the way into the store with her middle finger up and on display!
