Hi Ladies, I would like to introduce myself. I am SO happy to find Traditional Catholic Mamas on MDC. My Catholic friend and I are always talking about the need for more mix of the philosophies of AP, natural childbirth/parenting, breastfeeding, etc and Catholicism and mostly the need for a community of mothers that are traditional Catholics and do all of that!
Anyway, my name is Athena. I've been married for 4.5 years, practice NFP, have a 2 yo son,miscarried April 2008, and am expecting baby #2 July 2010.
I am so so excited to have discovered this thread (I'm fairly new to MDC).
It's hard when I agree with so many parenting things that make Mothering, but really, my Catholic faith is so much a part of how I parent, that I sometimes just have to keep my mouth shut when more controversial issues pop up in the DDC forum.
Hope everyone is having a happy Advent and I look forward to getting to know you ladies!
