They aren’t really triplets but so close in age that I started calling them that, especially after Rachel was diagnosed. It was easier than saying 1, 2, 3 and 4 because I knew at some point “Thing 1,” Rachel wouldn’t be here. And here we are. This is a picture of the kids taken by a photographer at their Homeschool Enrichment Program. I purchased the rights to share this picture on social media and make prints but I think she deserves credit. 🙂 Elizabeth Osberg Photography
Weeks before Boston’s 11th birthday I came across a picture from his third birthday party and decided I wanted to try and inexpensively recreate the picture. I think I nailed it without spending a fortune. The main difference, to me, was the cost of the cake. Vegan cakes are much more expensive than an ole vanilla box cake by Betty Crocker. This is the resulting picture. This is the comparison picture between 2017 and 2009. London turned 12 just 10 days later and I sprung for a full vegan cake for him. It was INCREDIBLE! A few days before his birthday we went to a party for Ruby who was turning 4 and Boston took this picture of his brother. I love when they take pictures on my phone, seeing the world through their eyes.
I haven’t blogged in forever and I owe myself an apology. I need this blog. For posterity’s sake (my memory is shot) and to get my feelings out. Feelings. I sound like such a bitch. Feelings. FML. I texted my landlord in December to see if she had any larger homes for rent and within a few weeks I was starting to move my kids and all of our crap to a new home in Northeast Denver.
I love an overexposed photo. Boston is pretty rotten in the weeks (months!) leading up to his birthday. It’s all he can talk about, think about. Today was the big day and he had his best birthday ever! His favorite present? An emerald green fuzzy bath robe that was a replacement for a zip up robe that was a present from my best friend. A present, a robe, that we named “Robie” and my children take turns stealing. One less child to share with.
