About the Rockets

Two little girls, all sugar and spice (Eliza and Gillian), a stay-at-home dad (David) and me, a working mother (Jody). Nice to meetcha.

What We Are

  • System-izers. We find what works for us and implement it as a system. I’m sure our systems won’t work for everyone.
  • Handy. RocketMan has a basic set of apartment-scaled tools–sander, small saw, hammer, toolset, etc.
  • Stay-at-home-dad family, and stay-at-home-work mother.. You can’t be a stay-at-home dad without having a blog, we always say–although working mom’s the one writing this.

What We Are Not

  • Minimalists. David is very tidy, and everything has a home, but rarely is that home stowed away in a cabinet or closet. The reasons are twofold: 1) we don’t have many cabinets or closets; and 2) I’m not very tidy, and I prefer to have things within easy reach. As such, some of our choices would drive a minimalist bonkers, so be warned!
  • Designers. Neither of us are architects, visual artists, interior designers, or anything related to the visual arts industry.
  • Neat freaks. I like a space that feels lived-in, provided the space is clean and everything is in its home.

What We Try To Be

  • Sustainable. Recycle, reduce waste, reuse whatever we can (including aluminum foil and washing out plastic bags). We like to buy used. Saying it’s a sustainable choice is giving us more credit than we deserve; my husband was raised by a Yankee. He’s cheap.
  • Happy. I like convenience. I like small luxuries. I like stuff that looks nice.

Lastly, we both like science fiction. If you hadn’t already guessed.

    Hi Rockets! I think your site is awesome!

    I saw that you commented on a review of llum on modernkiddo a while back. You asked about buying, so i just wanted to let you know we are now selling online. :) We are having a sale on some of our all-season dresses and skirts, and have an additional discount code for you to use this week (FBF25). If you try it and like it, I’ll be happy to pass along our friends and family discount as well.
