If I Could Keep You Little

If I Could Keep You Little

This past week as we’ve been preparing for my son’s first day of kindergarten, I can’t help but think about how the past 5 years have flown by so quickly. I remember scrolling through Facebook and seeing all the first day of school photos, feeling sad for those parents while squeezing my own baby tight.

A 10th Anniversary Surprise

A 10th Anniversary Surprise: Vacation in Aruba | Rachel Rambach

When my husband Zach and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary last summer, we started talking about how much fun it would be to take a big vacation, just the two of us, for our 10th. And since he is an amazing planner and I love surprises, we decided he would keep our destination a secret until we boarded the plane.

I Want You To Have It All

It’s been a whirlwind of birthdays in my family over the last few weeks. My daughter turned 3 at the end of May, followed by my own birthday at the beginning of June, and culminating with my son’s 5th birthday just a few days later.

Every birthday feels like a milestone while my children are this young, but 5 was an especially big one. At 5, Parker is no longer a little kid, a preschooler…he is officially school-aged and heading to kindergarten in a couple months. Admittedly, 5 brought on a whole lot of emotions for this mama.

Mia Belle at 3

It’s official: we no longer have a toddler in our house. This big girl turned 3 years old, which ends an era for the Rambachs. And while I will miss the toddler years, I already know how much fun this next stage is thanks to her big brother.

As a fresh 3-year-old, Mia Belle’s personality is bigger and brighter than ever. She’s still a total mama’s girl, but she’s getting more and more independent by the day. I took her to a fairytale princess party over Memorial Day weekend, and she happily sat with all the other little girls in the center of the room, not minding one bit that I wasn’t in view. A little bittersweet for this mama, but I’m so proud of her for coming out of her shell.

The Big K

Parker Goes to Kindergarten | Listen & Learn Music

Wasn’t I telling you about Parker starting part-time daycare just yesterday?

At least, it seems like just yesterday we were taking that big leap. But that was actually almost 4 years ago, when he was turning 18 months old. Now he’s approaching his 5th birthday, and kindergarten is on the horizon.

Namaste on New Year’s Day

Namaste on New Year's Day | Rachel Rambach | Listen & Learn Music

Happy New Year! I wanted to start 2018 with a little zen, so I snuck off to yoga class first thing this morning. Little did I know that my kids would be eagerly waiting for me to get home so that we could have our own living room yoga session.
