My name is Marie and I'm a mom to Kai (9) and Jack (14 months). I haven't been on a forum for about 5 years I've tried facebook but got bored with it. I am interested in chatting with other moms who share similar interests, as living in a small, southern town does not afford me much opportunity to do so.
My husband Alan and I have been married for 10 years (this September). Alan is a teacher (he teaches 7th grade World History- blek!). I'm a 3rd year teacher (I started late) and teach English I to 9th graders. I love teaching and love teaching 9th grade! People say I am crazy for loving it, and I probably am.
As parents we teach or children rather than punish them (that is our job after all), practice extended breastfeeding (Kai nursed until 2 months shy of her 5th birthday and Jack is going strong at 14 months), and we eat organic as much as possible.
I want to learn more about probiotics (we selectively vax) and how to keep my house more organized and clutter-free (Mission Impossible?)
Anyway, though I would say hi! before I burst into any conversations
