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.

That’s really all I could say today. A few days ago, I shared my story about Kayla’s spider gift and that I was told to expect a Congratulations package. Today when I got home from picking Kayla up from school, I saw this in front of the door:

Now I am certainly no stranger to on-line ordering. But I’m really good at remember what I ordered and even knowing when to expect it. I was wracking my brain trying to figure out not only what I ordered, but what I ordered that was so large. It wasn’t until I started opening the box and saw the Improvements catalog inside that I realized this was her special package.

So first I did what any crazy good Mom would do and got out my camera. Then I called Kayla in to open her package. The gift was a second Drop Down Spider. And to make it even better it was in an adorable reusable pumpkin bag. But what blew me away the most was the card. They sent a card for her that was signed by 29 employees. I was (and still am) absolutely blown away.

And Kayla has said she wants the two spiders to hang next to each other and be married.

p.s. J says he wants to work for this company because “they have heart”. Let’s see if he still feels that way when I start buying some Christmas decorations from their awesome Christmas catalog.

Awesome!! And now, b/c of you, I've found a new company to shop from online ;-)

Knowing that they care and put forth an effort to show it is soooo rare, it really warms the heart.
