[name_m]Cliff[/name_m] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] Rottenberg- Age 23, Coordinator of Bonobo Research

Year 1: We move into a small apartment in [name_m]Berlin[/name_m], we do not have a child.

Year 2:I get promoted from part time blogger to full time print columnist!

We have a baby girl. We name her [name_f]Natasha[/name_f] [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f] Rottenberg.

Year 3: We have no children

Year 4: I get divorced.

Year 5: We move to a new place further out from the city center. It is narrow and tall and there is a vegetable garden out back and wild flowers out front.

I give birth to a baby girl. Her name is [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_u]Demeter[/name_u] Rottenberg.

Year 6: I get sick from eating some highly questionable beef at a suspicious diner. But I also have the best Baklava I’ve ever tasted.

I adopt a baby boy. His name is [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m] “[name_m]Iggy[/name_m]” [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] Rottenberg.

Year 7:I have the opportunity to get married but I turn down the proposal because he smokes like a chimney.

Year 8:

I give birth to a baby boy. His name is [name_u]Bentley[/name_u] “[name_m]Benny[/name_m]” [name_u]Blu[/name_u] [name_u]Ray[/name_u] Rottenberg.

Year 9: Nothing happens

Year 10: I am diagnosed with Bronchiectasis, likely due to my years dating the smoker and a pre-existing problems with asthma. I have to use an oxygen tank if I am exerting myself. My youngest daughter, [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f], puts stickers on the mask to make it pretty for me.

I adopt another baby girl. I name her [name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] Rottenberg.

10 years later: I am 45. My Bronchiectasis is in stable condition.

My eldest daughter, [name_f]Natasha[/name_f] [name_f]Kathryn[/name_f] Rottenberg, is 18. She is in university in Norway, where her father lives. She is studying Neurology. She is a romantic who falls in love easily. I am afraid she will get her heart broken.

My second daughter, [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_u]Demeter[/name_u] Rottenberg, is 15. She now goes by her middle name, asserting that it suits her better.Like her sister, she has a fascination with the inner workings human body, but she is not interested in the brain. Rather, like her grandmother before her, she loves to dance. She hopes to dance professionally one day.

My eldest son, [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m] “[name_m]Iggy[/name_m]” [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] Rottenberg, is 14. He is a slacker and a rebel. He reminds me very much of me, which is terrifying. He has begun to write poetry, which has been mostly terrible so far. I encourage him anyways. It’s nice to see him passionate about something.

My youngest son, Bentely “[name_m]Benny[/name_m]” [name_u]Blu[/name_u] [name_u]Ray[/name_u] Rottenberg, is 12. He very much looks up to his sister, [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_u]Demeter[/name_u], whom he affectionately calls [name_f]Demi[/name_f]. They are very close and he has taken also taken up dance.

My youngest daughter, [name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] Rottenberg, is 10. She is large for her age and very boisterous, unlike the other children who are far more reserved. She loves team sports and excels at them. She is a natural leader.

10 years later: I am 55. My lungs grow weak. It has become clear that I will not live into old age. I think I have another decade in me if I take care of myself though.

My ex-husband perished in a car crash. My eldest daughter grieved the hardest.

[name_f]Natasha[/name_f] (29) is working in the medical research field. She has published 2 papers so far. Her husband is an older man (40) named [name_m]William[/name_m], who also works in neurology. They met because their labs are in the same building. They plan to start having children soon.

[name_u]Demeter[/name_u] (25) was sadly diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa when the pressures of her dancing career got to her. It took years for her to recover, but since then she has gotten married, started her own business providing people with pilates and yoga classes (some of which she teaches), and given birth to twin boys, [name_m]Arrow[/name_m] and [name_m]Piers[/name_m].

[name_m]Iggy[/name_m] (24), always the rebel, dropped out of university and moved to [name_u]London[/name_u] where he struggles to get by on some minimum wage jobs and anything he can bring in from his freelance writing, which has gotten quite a bit better. Despite his financial woes, he seems happy and has even met a lovely man (who might just be the"one") named [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m].

[name_m]Benny[/name_m] (22) Is in the middle of a successful ballet career. He hopes to one day choreograph and direct his own ballet. He is not married but does seem to leave a trail of broken hearts every where he goes. He also has plans to change his terrible name.

[name_f]Esther[/name_f] (20) Like [name_m]Benny[/name_m], she is quite the heart breaker. She, like [name_m]Iggy[/name_m], also dropped out of college, but makes a relatively comfortable living as a tour guide who shows old people and families around European cities. She is very happy.

They love to hear the story before bed and I wind up writing a children’s book about [name_m]Elmer[/name_m] which sells pretty well. We also welcome our second son-- [name_u]Owen[/name_u] [name_m]Peter[/name_m] [name_m]Elmer[/name_m].

Year 1:
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] and I moved into our first home together. It is a cozy 2 bedroom home in [name_m]Austin[/name_m], [name_u]Texas[/name_u]. We also start to try for our first child, and we are succesful on our first IVF treatment! We have a baby boy 9 months later, whom we name [name_u]Porter[/name_u] [name_m]Beau[/name_m] [name_m]Newman[/name_m]-[name_m]Gold[/name_m]. He is now 10 years old, and such a mommas boy!

[name_u]Porter[/name_u] Then:

[name_u]Porter[/name_u] Now:

Year 2:

This year, I decided to change career paths. I decide that Social Work is my real passion, so I go back to school for Social work. [name_f]Lily[/name_f] and I also adopt a baby girl! Her name is [name_f]Hazelle[/name_f] [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f] [name_m]Newman[/name_m]-[name_m]Gold[/name_m]. She was born in [name_f]France[/name_f], so we used a [name_m]French[/name_m] spelling of [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] for her first name. She is now 9. [name_f]Hazelle[/name_f] is a very artsy girl, and loves to draw and paint!

[name_f]Hazelle[/name_f] Then:

[name_f]Hazelle[/name_f] Now:

Year 3:

Since I have a little extra time, I get a part time job as a tutor!

Year 4:

We get a pet! [name_u]Porter[/name_u] is 3 and [name_f]Hazelle[/name_f] is 2, and they love our new Great [name_u]Dane[/name_u] puppy! His name is [name_m]Wilson[/name_m]!


Year 5:
Our family is outgrowing our small 2 bedroom home, so we move to a bigger house in [name_m]Austin[/name_m]! We also find out we are expecting twin girls! They are named [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_f]Athena[/name_f] [name_m]Newman[/name_m]-[name_m]Gold[/name_m] and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] [name_m]Newman[/name_m]-[name_m]Gold[/name_m]. They are now 5, and polar opposites! [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] is extremely girly and frilly while [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] wants nothing to do with girly things and would rather be out side wrestling with [name_u]Porter[/name_u].

[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] Then:

[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] Now:

Year 6:

I finally graduated from Social Work school! I am finally a Social Worker!

Year 7:

I get my dream job! I go to work at a center for children in foster care that have extreme behaviors, and cannot attend regular school. But the center is in [name_u]Denver[/name_u], [name_u]Colorado[/name_u], so our whole family moves up [name_u]North[/name_u] a little! The kids settle in quite well and [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] the snow!

Year 8:

For the first time in a very long time, we have a very uneventful year! Nothing big happens except [name_u]Porter[/name_u] broke his arm in two places by falling off of our trampoline.

Year 9:

[name_m]Wilson[/name_m] died of cancer this year. All of the kids are heart broken, especially [name_f]Hazelle[/name_f] as he was her best friend. [name_u]Porter[/name_u] also finally got a little brother! His name is [name_m]Weston[/name_m] [name_m]Atticus[/name_m]. He is now 1 year old and a very happy little boy!


Year 10:
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] is promoted to the head [name_m]Lawyer[/name_m] in her firm! My father also died this year, and I have had a pretty hard time with it. We also adopted a baby boy from the Ukraine with Down Syndrome. His name is [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] [name_m]Nikolai[/name_m].



[name_u]Porter[/name_u] is now 20 years old. He is in college at [name_u]Colorado[/name_u] State. He is studying engineering. [name_f]Hazelle[/name_f] is 19, and lives in [name_m]New[/name_m] [name_m]York[/name_m] City. She is studying art (of course!) and is loving the fast pace of the city. [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] are 15. [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] is very popular in school and loves to hang out with her friends. [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] recently surprised us but coming out as lesbian. We recently met her girlfriend, [name_u]Blair[/name_u], who is wonderful! [name_u]West[/name_u] is 11, and ALL boy. He is playing football and baseball and full of energy. Finally, [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] is 10. He is a wonderful boy and we are so glad he came into our lives.

I am still working at the Center in [name_u]Denver[/name_u], and [name_f]Lily[/name_f] is now a District [name_m]Judge[/name_m]! We have also adopted 2 dogs and a cat. Our dogs are Wadley (a westie) and [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] (a lab) and the cat is [name_f]Elspeth[/name_f]!

[name_u]Porter[/name_u] and [name_f]Hazelle[/name_f]:

[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] and [name_u]Blair[/name_u] ([name_f]Amelia[/name_f]'s Girlfriend):

[name_m]Weston[/name_m] and [name_m]Bennett[/name_m]:


[name_u]Porter[/name_u] is now 30, and married to [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] [name_f]Anne[/name_f]. [name_u]Porter[/name_u] is now an engineer and [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] is a chef. They met in college and have been in love ever since. They have 2 children, a boy and a girl named [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_m]Newman[/name_m]-[name_m]Gold[/name_m] (5) and [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_u]Aspen[/name_u] [name_f]Belle[/name_f] [name_m]Newman[/name_m]-[name_m]Gold[/name_m] (2).
[name_u]Porter[/name_u]'s Family:

[name_f]Hazelle[/name_f] is 29 and is finally settling down. She had a one night stand with a guy 4 years ago, and now has a 3 year old son, [name_m]Ansel[/name_m] [name_m]Jasper[/name_m]. But, a year ago, a wonderful man named [name_u]Corbin[/name_u] [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] [name_m]Bates[/name_m] came into her life. He loves [name_m]Ansel[/name_m] just as much as he loves [name_f]Hazelle[/name_f]. They just got engaged!
[name_f]Hazelle[/name_f]'s Family:

[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] is 25 now. She recently graduated from nursing school and is working full time at one of the best hospitals in the country. She is learning so much. She is dating a wonderful man, [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_u]Reed[/name_u] [name_u]Linden[/name_u]. [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is 34 and a divorced father with 2 girls, [name_u]Haley[/name_u] [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] (3) and [name_u]Brooke[/name_u] [name_f]Faith[/name_f] (1). At first [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] was uneasy about dating a man with kids, as she never wanted any herself, but she has fallen in love with the little girls!
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]'s Family:

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] is also 25 now! She is still with [name_u]Blair[/name_u], and they have adopted a daughter, [name_f]Maisie[/name_f] [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] (5), are expecting another daughter who they plan to name [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u], and are in the process of adopting a little boy, [name_m]Cullen[/name_m] [name_m]Bennett[/name_m]! Both [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] and [name_u]Blair[/name_u] are teachers and live in [name_m]Austin[/name_m], [name_u]Texas[/name_u].
[name_f]Amelia[/name_f]'s Family:

[name_m]Weston[/name_m] is now 21 and has a baseball scholarship to the University of [name_u]Texas[/name_u]. He is still in a bit of a party phase and isn’t in any serious relationships. Since he lives in [name_m]Austin[/name_m] like [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], he spends a lot of time with her and [name_u]Blair[/name_u] and little [name_f]Maisie[/name_f] (who LOVES her big uncle [name_u]West[/name_u]!).

[name_m]Bennett[/name_m] is 20 years old now. He lives with [name_f]Lily[/name_f] and I, but we don’t mind, he always keeps us company and gives us a reason to smile! He is currently working at a local ice cream shop, which he loves because Ice Cream is his favorite thing.

Me: [name_f]Hana[/name_f] [name_f]Bijou[/name_f] Layman (nee Koizumi), 27, resident at a local hospital
Spouse: [name_m]Balthazar[/name_m] [name_m]Julius[/name_m] Layman, 26, Big [name_m]Joe[/name_m]'s (<- fictional company) locksmith

Year 1: We move into a tiny apartment in New York City. The walls are grey but we have a great view of a public park full of yellow flowers. The bathroom door squeaks, and the thermostat is broken, but maintenance has it up and running by our third day there. The microwave plays music as you wait for your food to warm up.

Year 2: I decide to go back to school for four years because I want to become an interior designer. I enroll in FIT, and we adopt a Siamese cat named Margaery.

Year 3: I decide to get a part-time job at a restaurant downtown, and it’s really fun.

Year 4: Margaery passes away. She was an old cat when we got her, and we are just so lucky to have been able to give her a loving home. Later this year, I give birth to a baby boy; we decide to call him Ieyasu Robespierre Layman. His nickname is Pierre.

Year 6: I graduate from FIT and start my own interior design firm. It’s not that big yet, but I do small projects for good money and I love it so far. I give birth to another baby boy that July, Theodoric Rhys Layman. His nickname is Odie.

Year 7: This year, we moved to suburban New Jersey. It’s pretty, but Balthazar and I have both been busy at work, so we haven’t met many of our neighbors. Pierre loves the playground across the street.

Year 8: We decide to adopt a cute brown pug, and name him Dorne, in honor of Margaery. He is a very lazy dog, but the boys love him and he seems very happy here.

Year 9: Dorne is struck by a car! We are all very sad, especially Odie and Pierre. We decide to have him cremated and place his urn in the front hall. The urn has an engraving of Dorne’s smiling little face. He will surely be missed. In December, I give birth to twin girls, Kasely Anne Layman and Jeremia Rae Layman. They will go by Kay and Mimi.

Year 10: Balthazar is promoted to locksmith manager at Big Joe’s!!! Unfortunately, he confesses to me that he is an alcoholic. I tell him he must go into recovery or I will keep the kids away from him. This happens after we adopt another baby, Carvey Zofia Layman.

10 years later:
Balthazar has been clean for 8 years and 11 months! I am so proud of him!
Pierre is now 16. He was bullied in middle school but we found out and took it to the school, who have been great. Now he enjoys going to school.
Odie is 15 and quite an introvert. He really misses Dorne, and cries about it sometimes, but I can always cheer him up by playing football with him in the backyard.
My business has really grown, and I’ve even hired an administrative assistant; her name is Cheryl Marie Dennings and she is very helpful.
Kay and Mimi are 11 and they are inseparable, though vastly different. Kay is trying to grow her hair as long as possible and is on her school dance team, while Mimi prefers it cut short and likes to draw comics. Oddly, I’ve never seen them fight in their lives. Carvey, age 10, is struggling with bulimia, and is currently in a residential program, but we are all giving her lots of support and are looking forward to her coming home in May.

another 10 years later:
Pierre is 26 and in graduate school, working on his PhD. He wants to become a chemistry professor.
Odie is 25, and the lead singer of a band he created with his three best friends in high school, Topher John Cormack (drums), Larry Destry Hall (bass), and Sushruth Rohit Mehta (guitar). They are currently working on their first EP, which will come out around Christmas.
Balthazar, now 56, has decided to retire early and write a memoir, while I am getting ready to expand my company and build a studio in Northampton, Massachusetts. I am currently 57 years old.
Kay, 21, has just gotten engaged to her high school sweetheart, Matthias Aurelius Powell. They plan to start a family right away, and Kay hopes to become a dance teacher while Matthias studies carpentry at the local vocational school. Mimi has skipped three grades over the course of her schooling, and is working on her final art project/thesis at NYU. She won’t tell us what it is until she’s finished, but I sure can’t wait to see it!
Carvey is now healthy and happy at 20 years old. She entered the University of Delaware last fall, and wants to get a degree in Political Science.

My name is [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_u]Fable[/name_u] [name_m]Hemingway[/name_m]. I have long, light brown hair and green eyes. I recently got a job at a local bakery, and I dream to open my own little café someday! I’m recently married to my charming husband, [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_m]Rafferty[/name_m] [name_m]Hemingway[/name_m], who is a home renovator. [name_m]Harry[/name_m] has a wonderfully rugged look to him with his messy dark hair and blue eyes. We are so happy together and can’t wait to start a family!

After our first year of marriage, [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I move into a quaint appartment in downtown [name_f]Bennington[/name_f], [name_m]Vermont[/name_m]. It’s small, but really lovely with enough room for the two of us and a couple of hopefully soon-to-be-had babies.

Another year has gone by, and I receive a promotion at the bakery! Along with a raise, I now have new responsibilities and authorities, and I’m very excited! [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I have begun to try for a baby, but with no luck and low spririts, he surprises me with a sweet little Huskey puppy instead! We name him [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], and he’s such a good boy.

[name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I take a break from trying to conceive for a year. We begin to try again, but still have no luck. I’m feeling especially miserable one day when [name_m]Harry[/name_m] comes home with another surprise for me—it’s a lease to a cheery little shop right in downtown [name_f]Bennington[/name_f]! The location is absolutely perfect for my dream café, and [name_m]Harry[/name_m] encourages me to finally pursue my dream. As a home renovator, he will be able to provide all of the necessary renovations for free. Everything is falling into place, and I can temporarily forget about my baby fever.

A year has passed, and my café is up and running and is a huge success! It was a lot of work getting it started, but now it is calming down and is very enjoyable. [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I have also recently gone in for IVF treatments at our doctor’s suggestion because of our inability to conceive naturally. After a couple of weeks, we find out that I am indeed pregnant! At an ultra sound, the doctors first report that I am pregnant with twins, but then they discover a third heartbeat—it’s triplets! [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I are overwhelmed but so excited. My pregnancy goes well and I make it in for a scheduled C-section, and then we get another surprise—there are four babies, not three! The fourth little one was hiding behind the others, unable to be seen on the ultra sounds. The C-section is successful, and [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I are now proud parents of four healthy, tiny boys named [name_m]Eros[/name_m] [name_m]Tamerlane[/name_m], [name_m]Ford[/name_m] [name_m]Leopold[/name_m], [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] and [name_m]Lenin[/name_m] [name_u]Windsor[/name_u] [name_m]Hemingway[/name_m]. [name_m]Eros[/name_m] and [name_m]Ford[/name_m] are identical with light hair and blue eyes, and [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] and [name_m]Lenin[/name_m] are identical with a lot more dark hair and blue eyes. We are in love!

The boys are nearly 6 months old, and life is very hectic. [name_m]Harry[/name_m]'s parents and younger sister have moved nearby so they can help us with the boys and my business. [name_m]Harry[/name_m]'s sister [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] has been working full time at the café, and we are so grateful for her help. I stay at home with my sweet boys most of the time, but last week was particularly difficult as I got terrible food poisoning from the meat at a restaurant [name_m]Harry[/name_m] took me to. It was supposed to be our first date night since the boys were born, and it unfortunately did not end too well. However I am feeling much better now. And on the bright side, with help from [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], we’ve created the best cake recipe I have ever tasted, and I can fully enjoy it now that I’m feeling better. We can’t wait to sell it at the café!

The boys are a year and a half now, and they have begun to stumble around the appartment and cause all sorts of trouble. We love our appartment, but it’s simply too small for a family of six. We want to keep the café and stay close to [name_m]Harry[/name_m]'s family, so we move into a large but cozy cabin in a tiny town just 15 minutes outside of [name_f]Bennington[/name_f]. It’s the perfect house to raise our four lovely boys in, and we are so happy there.

It’s been almost two years since we moved into our new home and the boys are all three. [name_m]Eros[/name_m] and [name_m]Ford[/name_m] have very pale blonde hair and sweet blue eyes. [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] and [name_m]Lenin[/name_m] has dark messy curls like [name_m]Harry[/name_m], and their eyes are more on the green side. They are all happy, healthy and sweet, though they each have a distinguished personality. [name_m]Eros[/name_m] is so silly and can be a little mischievous at times. [name_m]Ford[/name_m] is especially energetic and playful—he loves to dance. [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] is pensive but content, and little [name_m]Lenin[/name_m] is a big mumma’s boy. [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I adore our four little boys so much. One day, to all of our dismay, our beloved dog [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] passes away from a heart attack. The boys are heartbroken as [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] was like their fifth brother. It’s a hard time for everyone. Then, a month later, I go into the doctor’s with fatigue and stomach cramps. Despite everyone’s belief that [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I were unable to conceive naturally, the doctor reports that I am two and a half month pregnant with twins! [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I are astonished but overjoyed! The boys are so excited to become big brothers, and they love watching my baby bump grow. The twins are born after 34 weeks, two precious girls that we name [name_f]Olive[/name_f] [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f] and [name_f]Vada[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] [name_m]Hemingway[/name_m]. [name_f]Olive[/name_f] is a tribute to sweet [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], and the boys especially love that connection. The girls have to stay in the NICU for 10 days due to their weak lungs, but when the 10 days are up, we are able take our beautiful daughters home. [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I are so in love with these new additions to our family, as are [name_m]Eros[/name_m], [name_m]Ford[/name_m], [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] and [name_m]Lenin[/name_m].

Another year has passed, and the boys are four and the girls are one. [name_m]Harry[/name_m] comes home from work with the wonderful news that he has been promoted to the position of head renovator and given his own team to lead in projects. His salary increases as well which is great news as a parent to six! The very next week, our sweet little [name_f]Vada[/name_f] breaks her leg falling off of mine and [name_m]Harry[/name_m]'s bed. She is so curious and energetic and it has always worried us, and now she has a broken leg because of it. She’s a little trooper though, and the doctors are not worried about serious complications. They say she’ll be back to crawling around and even walking in no time.

A year later, the boys are all five and have started kindergarten. A they absolutely love it, although [name_m]Lenin[/name_m] does cry ever morning at drop off. [name_f]Vada[/name_f]'s leg has healed, and she and [name_f]Olive[/name_f] are walking and chattering constantly. [name_f]Vada[/name_f] has straight pale blonde hair and blue eyes, while [name_f]Olive[/name_f] has curly dirty blonde hair and green eyes. They are well-behaved and so much fun, and their big brothers adore them. One day, [name_m]Harry[/name_m] admits to me his hopes of adopting one more child. He has a soft spot for orphans and would love to provide one with a loving home—and how could I say no to that? Within a year, we have adopted a 9 month old baby boy from [name_f]Ireland[/name_f] named [name_u]Duff[/name_u] [name_m]Malachy[/name_m] [name_m]Hemingway[/name_m]. He has curly chestnut hair, freckles and brown eyes. [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I, along with our six other children, absolutely adore [name_u]Duff[/name_u], and he becomes just as much a part of our family as any of our other kids. Our family is perfect and complete with silly [name_m]Eros[/name_m], wild [name_m]Ford[/name_m], thoughtful [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m], sweet [name_m]Lenin[/name_m], adorable [name_f]Olive[/name_f] curious [name_f]Vada[/name_f] and innocent [name_u]Duff[/name_u].

Twenty years later, [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I are still living in our cozy cabin in [name_m]Vermont[/name_m]. [name_m]Harry[/name_m] still works as a home renovator at the same company, but he has cut back on hours to be able to have more free time and less stress on his body. My little café in downtown [name_f]Bennington[/name_f] is still thriving, and it’s still a dream come true to work there. My café has actually become rather famous, featured in magazines in [name_m]New[/name_m] [name_f]England[/name_f] as well as in [name_m]New[/name_m] [name_m]York[/name_m] City and [name_u]London[/name_u]. [name_m]Harry[/name_m] is so proud of me, and I am so thankful to him for all of his help and encouragement. Our youngest son [name_u]Duff[/name_u] is 20, and is studying environmental engineering at the University of [name_m]Vermont[/name_m] 3 hours away from our home. [name_f]Vada[/name_f] is 21 and lives with her husband [name_u]Max[/name_u] [name_m]Lakeland[/name_m] in a little house in [name_f]Bennington[/name_f]. They are expecting their first child, a little boy. She works with me and the café every day while [name_u]Max[/name_u] teaches online computer science classes from home. [name_f]Olive[/name_f] is attending Union College in [name_m]New[/name_m] [name_m]York[/name_m], which is barely an hour away from me and [name_m]Harry[/name_m]. She is studying anthropology, following in the footsteps of her brother [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] who also attended Union. [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m], 24, is now in South [name_f]Africa[/name_f] working with a group of archeologists. [name_m]Eros[/name_m] lives in the nearby town of [name_m]Arlington[/name_m] with his lovely wife [name_f]Emmy[/name_f] and their two children [name_m]Peregrine[/name_m], 3, and [name_f]Odette[/name_f], 1. [name_m]Eros[/name_m] and [name_f]Emmy[/name_f] met at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where they were both studying to be mechanical engineers. [name_m]Ford[/name_m] is currently traveling the country with his four best friends in a renovated school-bus-turned-camper. He calls me every week with amazing stories and sends home postcards from the most beautiful places imaginable. He’s always been a free spirit, and [name_m]Harry[/name_m] and I are so excited to see him living out his dream. Last but not least, [name_m]Lenin[/name_m] is living in [name_m]Boston[/name_m] working as a full time novelist. His first book was a [name_m]New[/name_m] [name_m]York[/name_m] Times bestseller, and we couldn’t be more proud of him! He’s married to a sweet journalist named [name_f]Isla[/name_f], and together they have a 2 year old son named [name_m]Painter[/name_m]. My favourite time of the year is [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] when all of the kids come back to their childhood home, along with their own little families and we can celebrate this amazing life we have together. :heart:

Avril Eówyn. Her middle name is to honor her deceased sister.

  • Skip ahed one decade-

As Bay promised, he deals with his drug and alkohol problems and stop with it. He gets promoted twice while I keep getting more and more roles, but I turned down most of them to have more time with my kids. Melody and Merida are 15 years old. Melody is, suiting for her name, interested in music and is learning to play clarinet. She is dating a boy in her class, Marcus, since 2 months. Merida just broke up with her boyfriend Jamie, she realized he wasn’t her cup of tea. Merida is incredible interested in cooking and spends her days watching Masterchef. Wyatt’s biggest interest is horses and for his 14 birthday he received a pony named Gingerbread. Sam is quite charismatic for an 11-year old and always spends time with his friends. Unfortunately, he doesn’t do well in school. Avril is an optimistic and carefree 10-year old and just enjoys life. She loves sport and play both soccer and baseball.

  • Skip another decade-

Melody and Merida are 25 years old. When Melody was 18 she auditioned for American Idol, she became second and received a music contract. At the age of 22 her boyfriend, Marcus, proposed on Valentine’s Day, 10 months later they had a beautiful Winter Wedding, and 9 months after that they had to twin boys: Asher Beckett & Xander Riley. Asher’s name is to honor his grandfather, Bay Ash. Melody is pregnant again.
Merida moved in with her boyfriend Robert when she was 22 and 2 months later found out she was pregnant. She had a boy named: Maximilian Flynn “Max” When he was born Robert proposed and Merida said yes. A year after Max was born she became pregnant again and this time had a baby girl named: Melinda Fiona. Currently Robert and Merida are busy planning their wedding. Both kids got Roberts surname; Gilbert. When they get married Merida is gonna take it to. She actually won Masterchef and is writing cook book after cook book.

Wyatt ended up starting a riding school with his wife, Lisa. When Wyatt was 22 they tried to get pregnant, but found out they couldn’t conceive naturally. With some help from IVF Lisa became pregnant, with triplets! Nine months later Wyatt’s three little girls were born and named: Olivia Louise “Liv”, Sophia Willow “Fia” & Amelia Mae “Mia”.

Sam is 21. He continued to have problem in school, but after repeating a year in high school he got it together and is currently studying at a police college. At the college he meet his girlfriend Christina, they’re opposites but perfect for each other.

Avril hasn’t been very lucky in love, but she’s not worried. She knows that it happens when it’s meant to happen. She’s studying at Brown and is playing for their soccer team.

DW: [name_f]Secret[/name_f] Jenacy [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] Chambers (18)
- Appointment scheduler at a tattoo/piercing parlor.
DH: Christofer [name_u]Michael[/name_u] Chambers (18)
- Chef (Vegan)

Year 1: (MOVE)
- [name_u]Chris[/name_u] and I move to a loft-type space downtown. It has no real bedrooms, just a level above the main floor where the bedroom is created. It’s open and airy with a large kitchen for [name_u]Chris[/name_u] to cook.
- No babies.

- I have now achieved an apprenticeship in the tattoo/piercing parlor.
- [name_u]Chris[/name_u] and I adopt a black kitten and name her [name_f]Portia[/name_f]

Year 3: (PART-TIME [name_m]JOB[/name_m])
- In order to bring in some extra cash, I also get a job at Hot Topic, I do enjoy it.
- We have a baby girl; [name_f]Aaliyah[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] Chambers.

Year 4: (DEATH)
- [name_f]Portia[/name_f] dies. It’s a sad time but nothing that can’t be recovered from. Sadly, I left the door open one night while bringing in groceries, she escaped out the door and was hit by a car.

Year 5: (MOVE)
- [name_u]Chris[/name_u] and I decide that a loft is not the right setting to raise a child in. We move to a slightly bigger apartment near a good school and a few parks.
- We have two baby girls; [name_f]Victoria[/name_f] [name_u]Chelsea[/name_u] Chambers & [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] Cienna Chambers.

Year 6: (SICKNESS)
- In [name_u]January[/name_u], I get food poisoning consuming raw brownie batter. Stay away from raw eggs. The experience makes me contemplate becoming fully vegan like [name_u]Chris[/name_u], but I quickly knock the idea. On the bright side, I try the best cake I’ve ever tasted at the Cheesecake Factory in Downtown [name_u]Denver[/name_u]. It was the [name_f]Godiva[/name_f] Chocolate Cheesecake and it was amazing.
- [name_u]Chris[/name_u] and I finally have a baby boy; [name_m]Troye[/name_m] [name_m]Christian[/name_m] Chambers.

Year 7: (MOVE)
- Yet another move. We decide to buy a real house. It has seven bedrooms to accommodate for all the children we currently have and the plenty more we plan on having.

Year 8: ([name_f]PET[/name_f])
- The twins have been asking for a cat. So we adopt one. He’s a black and white Siberian long-hair. [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] picked him out, so [name_f]Victoria[/name_f] names him Versace, but we all call him Sache.

Year 9: (DEATH)
- Sache dies. He was an outside cat, one day he just didn’t come back. We assume a fox or raccoon took him. The girls were devastated. [name_m]Troye[/name_m] was quite unbothered by the loss of our dear feline friend.
- [name_u]Chris[/name_u] and I have a boy; [name_m]Kellin[/name_m] [name_u]Carlisle[/name_u] Chambers.

Year 10: (PROMOTION)
- [name_u]Chris[/name_u] moves up from a chef, to a personal caterer. Vegan food rocks and brings in a lot of extra cash since those who can afford to eat vegan food, plus cater in, can afford the high prices he charges.
- [name_m]Kellin[/name_m] breaks his leg at a nearby park. He jumped off the slide, not unlike [name_m]Troye[/name_m] often does, and the decision landed him in the Emergency Room. All is well, he likes to doodle on his cast.
- We adopt a little boy from [name_f]Ireland[/name_f]; [name_m]Declan[/name_m] [name_u]Chase[/name_u] Chambers.

Year 20: (RECAP)

  • I am now a licensed piercer, I often run the parlor. (28)
  • [name_u]Chris[/name_u] quit his chef job and started helping me in the parlor, doing my old job of managing the phone. (28)
    • [name_f]Aaliyah[/name_f]: 17. She’s got a boyfriend named [name_u]Ricky[/name_u] [name_m]Olson[/name_m]. She’s a Senior in high school and doing very well. She’s got a medium collection of piercings by now and has become a vegan. We are proud.
    • [name_f]Victoria[/name_f]: 15. She now goes by [name_f]Tori[/name_f] and nothing else. She’s giving us the most trouble. As open parents, we encourage self-expression but that does not include rebelling.
    • [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]: 15. [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] has entered into the International Baccalaureate Program at her school and is excelling. She is great at math and has plans of becoming a teacher.
    • [name_m]Troye[/name_m]: 14. [name_m]Troye[/name_m] has decided to start a band. A rock band at that and [name_u]Chris[/name_u] and I couldn’t approve more. We are supportive of Empires Crumbling and support them greatly. No sports for our boys.
    • [name_m]Kellin[/name_m]: 12. [name_m]Kellin[/name_m] is quite the dare-devil. He’s made it a goal of his to break every bone in his body at least twice. He’s on his way. Although it still scares me every trip to the E.R.
    • [name_m]Declan[/name_m]: 10. [name_m]Declan[/name_m] has an obsession with temporary tattoos and is often covered in them. The future is bright for our little boy.

Year 30: (RECAP)

  • I am now own the parlor. (38)
  • [name_u]Chris[/name_u] now does tattoos from time to time, he’s given up on veganism and is now a carnivore. (38)
    • [name_f]Aaliyah[/name_f]: 27. She and [name_u]Ricky[/name_u] have given [name_u]Chris[/name_u] and I five grandkids. Christofer [name_m]Richard[/name_m] [name_m]Olson[/name_m], [name_u]Clare[/name_u] Vianey [name_m]Olson[/name_m], [name_m]Joshua[/name_m] [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]Olson[/name_m], [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] [name_u]Tobin[/name_u] [name_m]Olson[/name_m], [name_u]Dustin[/name_u] [name_m]Angelo[/name_m] [name_m]Olson[/name_m].
    • [name_f]Victoria[/name_f]: 25. She is now an expressive model, doing shots for the modified magazines, often nude. She has one daughter; [name_f]Tara[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] Chambers. The father is not in the picture.
    • [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]: 25. [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] and her girlfriend are currently in the process of adopting a little girl from [name_f]China[/name_f]. They plan on naming her [name_f]Kimi[/name_f]. The rest is undecided. She has become a math teacher at the high school she attended, teaching the I.B. kids.
    • [name_m]Troye[/name_m]: 24. [name_m]Troye[/name_m]'s band made it big. He plays guitar and is currently away in Europe on tour. No grand babies from our rockstar yet.
    • [name_m]Kellin[/name_m]: 22. [name_m]Kellin[/name_m] is in college. He is in a fraternity so who knows what’s going on with him now. He’s brought his girlfriend, [name_u]Quinn[/name_u], home a few times. She’s nice enough but too clean-cut for what we’d expect from a Chambers.
    • [name_m]Declan[/name_m]: 20. [name_m]Declan[/name_m] is covered in plenty of permanent tattoos, most of which were done by [name_u]Chris[/name_u] and I. We can’t wait to see what else he adds to his collection.
