Boy(s) of Rock and Roll

Here’s the thing about my kids…they are hilarious on a daily basis. I realize I have an incredible bias but I think even a casual observer would label them funny. The problem is they both have just enough of my shyness to give them pause whenever they know they are being watched and especially captured on film. It would seem though that Chase is coming a little out of his shell a bit. Lately he’s been willing to perform on cue, even letting me catch a few magic moments with my phone.

I recently introduced them to one of my favorite childhood movies, The Chipmunk Adventure. The first time we watched it they didn’t seem too interested but the next day they fought over the DVD at nap time, and have continued to fight over it every day since. We happened to be watching various clips from the movie on YouTube when Chase broke out in dance.

He tried SO hard to copy all of the moves but bless his heart he got his gracefulness and coordination – or lack there of – from me.

I’m suddenly very concerned about how I actually look during Zumba classes.

May 30. Five

Chaser, Five. Last week you went and got another year older. Tomorrow you finish your first year of school (even if it is just practice Kindergarten). An entire year of drop offs and pick ups, packing lunches, school programs, awards ceremonies, class trips. I can’t believe how much you’ve grown this year. You went to school a timid toddler too shy to speak to anyone and today I watched you race around the park with all the friends you’ve made. [...]

December 19. Merry Happy Everything

Hello friends! I know it’s been a little sparse around these parts but I just had to come back to participate in the 5th Annual Bloggy Holiday Card Exchange (partly because I fear the wrath of Meghan). In all seriousness the friends I have made through this blog, as well as twitter and facebook, have been some of the best I’ve ever had. I can’t thank you all enough for being there through some of the best and worst times [...]

April 30. After the Intermission

Hello friends. It’s been awhile, eh? If by chance you’re new here then, well, you won’t have noticed my nearly 6 month absence. I know! Six months! That’s a long time, yo! It’s not like I wasn’t around, I just haven’t been here. I haven’t felt like writing. Or I’ve felt like writing but the words I wanted to share weren’t mine or just weren’t ready to be put in the open. A lot has happened in the last six [...]

November 18. Katelyn – Two Years Old

Dear Kate, How in the world is it that you are two years old already? It’s so cliche but time really does seem to be moving at warp speed. In the last six months you have morphed into a full fledged person. For such a tiny little person you have no trouble what so ever making your every feeling heard and/or understood. I could make a 500 page flip-book comprised of only your facial expressions. Your vocabulary is growing by [...]
