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.

Rainy Day Activities

It's been a dreary day here clouds and rain all day. A perfect day to stay home. But any Mom knows staying home on a rainy day means having to entertain the kids while trying to be somewhat productive.

It's been a pajama day.

A little extra TV time day.

A day of cleaning the kitchen, laundry (aka the usual), and trying to play catch-up day.

A day I finished the instructions for Kayla's upcoming Kindergarten year which goes along with her safe snack boxes. I had to make a second one this year since she'll be in two classrooms this coming year.

A day I started shopping for a new VCR (mine is on its last legs) which has shown me there are no more inexpensive alternatives. They're all VCR/DVD combos. I don't need a DVD player, only a VCR.

A day I priced a DVR which I'd love but learned it won't fit into our budget right now. In the process I learned my Fios bundle period is ending next month. Which means my price will go up by $50. But...I could rebundle for only $10 more (no other option really) and this time I'll get Showtime and HD (even though I don't have an HD television). But the icing on the cake is I'll get Wifi on my laptop. And not Wifi in my home, but Wifi that goes with me wherever I go. I can go to the airport and get free Wifi access through Verizon. Talk about making my day!!!

I made pizza dough in the bread maker for dinner tonight.

I made some more Power Balls.

I took sugar cookie dough out of the freezer and made cookies with the girls.

I made Kayla's day by washing her new bathroom (bought on clearance last year for $5) and she's wearing it around the house.

And I'm hoping for a relaxing night tonight while possibly munching on a few of those cookies.

So it was a day of productivity and quality time with my girls. Sometimes rainy days aren't all bad.

Busy day! But it looks like a good day :) My whole house is a complete disaster and needs cleaned. If you still have energy I could use the help;)

Rainy days can be the best if you have the right motivation! Sounds like an awesome day!
