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.

Welcome Fall
I can't say I'm 100% ready to give up summer yet.

I wasn't done with swimming or shorts and tank tops.

Although I'm excited for the kids to head back to school because they are excited, I am not ready for school.

I'm not ready to watch Kayla head off to Kindergarten and be gone from the house all day long.

I'm not ready to watch Alysa, my baby, head off to preschool.

And I'm most certainly not ready for the chaotic mornings which entails waking two kids up who don't want to get up before 9 am and rush them through breakfast and out the door.

I'm not ready for short days or cold weather.

I'm not ready for bare trees.

I'm not ready for heating bills.

I'm not ready to give up watching the girls play outside for hours each day and eating meals with them outside.

But as much as I'm not ready to give up the long days of summer, I am finding myself looking forward to all Fall has to offer.

I am enjoying this week full of cooler days.

I'm enjoying shutting the air conditioning off for a bit.

I'm enjoying watching the girls put their hoodies on as the sun goes down and they're still outside.

I'm looking forward to corn mazes, apple picking and pumpkin picking at the local farm.

I'm looking forward to colored and falling leaves and the leaf piles that come with them.

I'm looking forward to watching my girls grow and develop under another year (Kayla) and her first year (Alysa) of Montessori.

I'm looking forward to cool crisp mornings when all you need is a light jacket.

I'm going to miss Summer but I am also looking forward to enjoying Fall!
