Mrs. Drofen is a pediatric critical care nurse at a prominent children's hospital. She works nights and weekend plan so that we don't have to put our kids in daycare. She's been a nurse for 6 years. She is the mother of the 2 y/o and Baby Drofen. We have been married since 2005 but have known each other since 1999.
This is the 9 y/o. She is currently in the 4th grade and loves all things art. The 9 y/o is from my first marriage. We have primary custody but she does split her time between our house and her mom's house. She's a great big sister.
This is the 2 y/o. Maybe she's technically the middle child, but her personality is first born all the way. She's off the charts in height, and cognitively she's just as ridiculous. How many 2 y/o's do you know that can identify all the letters of the alphabet by sight, can count to 20, and knows 6 or 7 songs by heart? Born at the end of September, fate would have it that she just missed the cutoff date for school. We may try and get her in a year early, just to keep her from being bored.
Baby Drofen joined the clan in December 2008. He is a welcome testosterone addition to an estrogen filled household. He likes to eat, sleep, and poop, like any man worth his salt.
