Traveling with PKU Kids

Traveling with PKU Adds Some Challenges to Our Vacation You may have read in other posts that my oldest two children have PKU. When Reagan was born with PKU it changed our world and how I have to think about food. When I was pregnant […]

International PKU Day

International PKU Day

Today is International PKU Day. As the mother of two PKU kids, this is something that effects my life every day. PK Who? Yeah, I know, most people have never heard of it. Actually, you probably learned about it in high school biology, but you […]

Disneyland with Toddlers

How to Do Disneyland with Toddlers Our family took our first trip to Disneyland last week! Growing up in southern California (technically),  we have both been to Disneyland dozens of times. As a college student in Orange County, Disneyland was practically an after school activity. I […]
