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.

Beanie Babies Anyone?
Years ago, J's brother (whom we no longer speak to) gave us bags of McDonald's Beanie Babies (he works for them). We threw them in the attic and promptly forgot about them. Since the girls love little stuffed animals, J decided to bring them down recently. Since I'm completely anal, I didn't want Kayla near them until the packages were all cleaned (even though, yes I'm sure all the dairy proteins are destroyed since they are from 2000). So yesterday I sat down and cleaned all the sealed packages. We have two full sets from that year which means we have 84, yes 84 baby beanie babies. Oh my! Since there is no way I will be dealing with 84 baby beanie babies scattered all over my house I let the girls pick out 4 each (it started at 2 each but apparently I'm a sucker), Kayla has insisted we mail one to her BFF Emma and the rest I will put up for sale on eBay.

Wish me luck since I also have to begin my sorting of clothes for eBay sale.

And considering that I didn't sleep AT ALL (no joke) last night due to my back pain I don't think I'll get much accomplished today.

Oh good luck with all that! I do not envy you the 84 beanie babies. I can however relate to the not sleeping part :(
