I am Roxana Guy, though everyone I know calls me Rocky. It seems I am only "Roxana" when bills are due or I am in serious trouble from my family. Yikes! I wish I had some fabulous story to go along with my nickname Rocky. I have entertained some wild stories such as pretending to be in a street fight somewhere in Timbuktu and smashing the enemy with a thunderous clamor from a rock slide. Maybe even that I am an adventurous anthropologist (or geologist) excavating the rare and exotic rock formations in my lithic studies. Or possibly that I am the offspring of an amazing 80s hairband rock legend with my "totally awesome" rocker mom and dad. Sadly, none of these stories even come close to the real reason I am nicknamed "Rocky."

Truth be told, my grandfather really wanted a grandson. I mean REALLY, REALLY bad! He had nothing against having granddaughters. In fact, he wanted those later, but a grandson was exactly what he had wished for ever since he found out I was coming into the world. You can imagine his defeat after finding out I was a girl. Two hours later, he decided I would be promptly called, "Rocky." Three years later, my cousin Dana was also born female. Two years after that, her sister Kristi was born. And no more grandchildren were had after that. For a while, he used to talk to his political friends about his grandchildren Rocky, Dan and Kris, but his closest friends all knew we were female. So while he tolerated us the best way he knew, everyone just learned to call me Rocky. And, honestly, it's the one I like the most.

Other Information:
We are Just Add That, a site devoted to improving the lives of stay at home parents. That means we talk about stay at home moms as well as stay at home dads. The struggles are real. As a stay at home mom myself, I understand the financial strains, marital strains, and overwhelming feelings of burned out parents. Our quest is to find products that improve our lives, find new short cuts on burdensome problems, and listen to the community on what they’d like to see on their site. Stay at home grandparents, foster parents and all guardians alike are also welcome on here.
We understand it isn’t easy giving up on dreams, jobs or even future potential incomes and life events. But we also understand the joys of being there for every child’s milestone, comforting your sick children while you’re at your wits end, and even the struggles of missing adult interaction you once had. Some days, you may have more time than others. Some days, you may be looking for a hobby, trying to finish that projec
