Introducing myself.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello mamas!

I'm Jodie, in Australia, and I've been reading the Mothering forums for years but rarely post. I used to come to this forum a couple of years ago - there is a lot more activity now! I have a blog, I'm on Facebook and Twitter (still figuring it out though) and I see there is now a lot more 'net based discussion here than there was when I was here last. Hope all the links are right! I have much to learn.

I have a few articles published at an online parenting site and two years ago I started writing a memoir about having four babies and becoming an activist in childbirth reform. The story unfolds with much interruption.

Other stuff about me: My beloved is a Linux geek and our three babies were born in our local birth centre, of which I became an advocate. Fourth bub was born at home in the US (MA to be precise). They've all grown and are now 3, 5, 7 & 9 years old and we are back in Oz, living on a farmlet on the outskirts of a city and living as extended family with my husband's brother and their aged mother (my MIL!) for whom we all assist as carers. Phew! Nice to meet you all.

Nice to 'meet' you Cari. So you don't live in Australia now? I don't recall seeing many silver Kia Rio's in Massachussetts but maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

Hi ~ I've removed a couple of posts for edit requests. They will be back ASAP.

FYI: Other threads are returning - they are being reviewed by admin at the moment. I'm also pulling a lot of the info and copying it into an FAQ for this forum that will be set up like the FAQ I have in the Q&S forum. I thought I left a note about that, but I'm not seeing it. Sorry about that!!

Thanks for your patience!!

Nice to meet you Caz. I spent a good while reading your blog (now RSS). What else do you write? I noticed you commented in mine - thank you! I will enjoy following your adventures.
