Torsten: The eldest of my trouble trio is a bright child. Gleeful in his mischief, but shy in the public eye, Torsten is an unusual boy. He loves clocks, to the point of obsession. He takes everything he does very seriously, but does it without significance. It is highly likely he has mild Aspergers. At the time this blog began, he was nigh approaching 3 years-old. He was born October 2, 2008 and is now 6.
Rafe: Rafe is my unexpected second born. He and his brother are a mere 14 months apart. For those who suck at math, that made him a little over 18 months at the time of this post. Rafe is monstrous for his age, and has a heart to match his size. He will do anything to acquire a reaction, and is greatly interested in facial expressions. He also has been dancing—or at least moving to the music of Viking death metal since he was born on January 24, 2010. He is now 5.
Ash: Ash was my planned child, though he was supposed to be a girl. He was born on his brother’s 4th birthday, October 2, 2012 and well, wasn’t even a thought when this blog started. He is now 2 years old. Ash is the embodiment of trouble. He absolutely loves to cause mischief and takes impressive joy in doing so.
….. and me..Mom: I’m a 29 year old stay at home mom and writer. I never thought I’d be either, but I couldn’t be happier. My real name is Amanda. I never liked common things, so I write under the pen name Unwirklich Vin Zant. 2 points if you get the joke there. That is my real last name, yes, with a space– blame my husband.
