Happy 4th Birthday Everett!

My youngest baby turns 4 today and I’ve definitely had a good cry over this fact.  We are well beyond infancy, over a year past the last time he nursed, and I can’t recall the last time we was worn in a carrier.  He still says “but I only 3” when it comes time for […]

The Teen in 10B

I’m constantly worried that I’m screwing my kids up for life, and not in the good way.  As a child from a dysfunctional home I pride myself in the positives that came from it- like knowing a lot about drug culture (but never trying them because I had the best “say no to drugs” commercial […]

…and a Kim update too! Family, Fitness, Home, and BlogU

No, I’m not making a pregnancy announcement like Lara did yesterday.  However, I realized I haven’t given a good “random stuff” update in a while about my family and our happenings.   The biggest update is that my oldest son is just about to graduate from Pre-K this month and will start Kindergarten at a charter school […]

A look at “Life After Diapers”

It has been about 8 months since Everett potty trained.  This time in my life can now be referred to as “AD.”  I suppose the previous 5 years were “DD” and pre-kids my life was “BD.” Life “BD” is nothing like “DD.”  Even though there aren’t diapers to wash, there is still plenty of other […]

Rosas Family Christmas 2013- The Video

Since 2010 I have made a video of our Christmas mornings as a family.  If you read the blog regularly you know that I take on the role of “historian” for our family, doing most of the photography and video.  Since most people don’t go back to watch the long footage of their videos I […]

Happy 3rd Birthday Everett!

The youngest member of our family, Everett, is the big 3 today! I can’t believe it either. He graduated from diapers to undies and recently weaned after he decided a T-Rex was cooler than boobs. He has a little personality all his own. Unlike his older brother, Everett is more reserved and doesn’t open up […]

To Grandmother’s House We Go!

Today we are off to Oma’s house in North Carolina for a quick visit.  It’s been about six months since our last trip so we are all excited to see family and friends for a few days.  That also means I’ll be away from my computer and taking a blog break until next week. I’m […]

Technology Keeps Our Family Together

For all the times I curse the invention of the smart phone and the 24/7 connectedness that threatens to swallow my life, I’m also just as thankful that it exists. Both of my children were born in a state that was a solid 12 hour drive from our closest relatives.  In the early days we […]
