Yep. 2 dolls I made in collage. An "I was born at home" T-shirt that was mine as a baby. A Moby wrap from when I was a nanny/postpartum doula. Lots and lots of really good picture books from my childhood. A few other childhood toys . . .
You reminded me that I also have a large collection of children's books. But I have been collecting those for years, before I ever knew I wanted to have a child.

It's a good job. I appreciate the relaxed atmosphere, and if I get to work with a really good narrator on a really good book, it's a special treat. If only it paid more! But isn't that often the case with good, relaxed jobs?!

Hi Again!

I think I posted in this tribe a year or so ago, but I haven't in a while. I'm 22, (23 soon, eek!) and my boyfriend and I want babies like crazy. But since we still can't even pay our own rent yet, it's definitely going to have to wait. We want an entire army, so we're planning on a minimum of 4 kids, And we're going to start trying probably in about a year.

I think I'll jump right in and start answering these questions, because it looks like fun!

1. Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
We have one cat. We got her as a kitten one year ago, and we've been tossing around names ever since.

2. Do you have anything stashed away for your future kids? (oh-so-cute outfit you couldn't not buy? Special cradle that's been in the family forever?)
Nope. I try to live my live clutter free, and keep only what I use regularly.

3. Favorite food?
I guess I can just go ahead and say anything Italian (except sea food). I love pastas, I love red sauces, and I love sweet peppers.
But the best meal I ever had was hamburgers on Texas Toast with corn on the cob, cooked in a cast iron skillet straight on top of a fire on top of a mountain in North Carolina.

4. What brought you to MDC?
My best friend got pregnant and spent all day on this forum two years ago. I was curious so I checked it out. Now she has a beautiful 16 month old baby girl (my goddaughter) who I consider the cutest funnest most awesome baby ever.

5. Random fact about yourself
I'm an excellent hula hooper!

I'm trying to learn to do this, but I am a terrible pack-rat. Kudos to you!

Wow. I'm drooling reading that food from the mountain you listed. Haha! Sounds amazing!!!! *slurp* lol

And that is definitely the most random fact I've heard!! Were you in lots of hula hoop contests and such? Can you only do it on your hips or arms or what?! Ha I'm so intrigued...

Believe me, it's a work in progress always. I've always been a packrat too, (I think it's in my blood) but I was really inspired by some people I met who lived with nothing but what they could carry on their backs, so I gave away almost everything I owned. I still have a few unused things lying around, like clothes that I hope someday will fit, but everyday I try to remain mindful about my consumption, and what I hold onto. I hate to think I'm letting something collect dust when someone out there could be using it.

I saw a lady bewitching an entire drum circle with her hula hoop one day, and decided I had to learn how to do it. I can do it on my hips, legs, chest and neck, and transition between as well as a few tricks. I taught myself entirely using nothing but youtube videos! I was getting really fit until I broke my foot, and I'm only just now getting back into the groove of things.

so because i know you guys will understand

i've been having full blown baby lust lately, to the point its getting annoying i don't even have a serious boyfriend at the moment. i get super paranoid about getting pregnant everytime i have sex which is why me and the guy i've been seeing had a conversation about what we would do if it happened. which made my baby lust come out even more... grrrrrrrr its so frustrating.. rant end

My baby lust is pretty bad this time, too. It's bad enough that I not only popped down to Jillian's Drawers to pick up a sample of Charlie's Soap to try out now (still 2+ years away from even starting to TTC), but I also tried one of the Flip diapers I picked up on one of my cats (no tail on him, so no tail to deal with). Yes, there's even photographic evidence of that one.

that babies documentary is amazing i can't wait till it comes out
post #152 of 254
I'm really looking forward to seeing The Babies, too.

And I'm really excited. I made an appointment for my preconception pap with a local homebirth midwife for monday. As long as it comes back normal we will be starting TTC next cycle (currently cd8)! Yay!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one affected by The Babies trailer...I get a little misty-eyed every time I see it in theaters

Usually it just makes me smile (especially the end, when the goat drinks out of the baby's bathtub). I'm not really sure why I got so teary the other day.

Hanging in there. School is so crazy busy. Remind me why I took three classes, each with hours and hours of reading a week, in addition to a math class with 200+ problems of homework each week? Sadly, next semester will be even worse. It'll all be worth it in the end...I want a career, and want to be able to live the city life with future hubby and kidlet, full of travel and good schools, do I gotta hang in there!

Thankfully, the family I nanny for is going away on vacation for two weeks next Wed. That will free up a lot of time, and I'll be able to finish up my two 7-10 page papers, my journals, and outline my final studying schedule. I'm done May 13th, and have a full 4 weeks before starting summer school of nothing but 8-10 hours of work a week. June and July will be nuts (school 8 hours a week and work about 30 hours a week), but then August will be great. I'm hoping to get up to NYC for my 21st birthday.

Whoah!!! What is this "The Babies" trailer everyone's talking about?! I've never heard of it/ seen it... Is it in theatres? If so, that's why I haven't seen it. Haha. Spain is quite behind on movies in the theatres.

And I'm doing pretty well... Got my period today. So that part isn't fun. Thank goodness for cloth pads!! Hehe. Oh and German g-free treats my friend sent me!! Yay!!

Just trying to step up my game in school... Mailed a bunch of job apps in the other day... I NEED a job when I get back to the US! And job hunting from 4,000 miles away is NOT fun.

Met a hot Spanish man last week... My BFF IRL and I decided he's my soulmate... He owns a pair of toe socks!!!! I hate white socks- toe socks are a must in my wardrobe. The second I saw his socks I freaked out (mentally of course, wouldn't wanna scare him! Haha!) But yes. We (BFF and I) decided I have to elope all romantically and such with him. He can cook, he's hot, he likes toe socks, he's Spanish, he likes reggae, he's liberal (like me)... soulmates right?! Lol. I can dream...
