Jennifer, Landen (age 8, almost 9) and Liam (age 4) and Cherry (4 mos)are a family of 4.
There is one other member that will eventually be joining them in shelter, but she is in the NICU right now. Cherry was born premature and is currently in the care at a hospital. As soon as she is cleared by the doctor to come home, she will be joining the rest of the family (we are hoping for mid-March). Cherry joined the family on Friday, March 13, 2020!! She is on oxygen and seems to be doing well. She has actually outgrowing her diapers in the past few days. (She is currently in size 1). Mom is monitoring her health and has doctor's appointments scheduled.
Jennifer will be starting employment soon, her hours will be 9AM-1:30PM Mon through Thurs. Landen attends school at Ryland Elementary in the Kenton County School District. Liam goes to Head Start at Taylor Mill Elementary.
Both Landen and Liam have bed-wetting problems (Landen almost nightly and Liam on occasion). They have food allergies and dietary restrictions. Landen and Liam cannot eat eggs. Eggs can be cooked into items such as cakes or cookies, or cupcakes but actual eggs cannot be in things. For example, salad with eggs or Chinese with eggs, etc. Landencannot have milk/dairy (has to have special pea protein cheese or none at all). He is also allergic to nuts. This includes anything with nuts in it, things that may contain nuts, or even things that might be made in a factory that processes items with nuts.
Ideas to help work around the allergy/dietary restrictions: Plain Pasta, Chicken Nuggets, Oreos, Popcorn and Chips (check bag to make sure it is ok for nut allergy), Hot Dogs, Lunch meat (turkey and ham). They like to bring peaches, applesauce, fruit snacks for lunches as well as lunch meat sandwiches and hot dogs when they pack their lunch occasionally. Liam loves pizza and can have the cheese. Landen and Liam both like hamburger patties, chicken, veggies and pork. They like fries and tator tots. Bacon and toast, but are picky on cereal (crunch berries, frosted flakes, honey bunches of oats are all things that they like).
