Esher - Can you please move me to Waiting To O? AF showed briefly yesterday and in full force today.
Library - Totally love the idea of playing music for the baby. I've read a couple of things that says it helps with creativity. Noooooow....whether that's true or not, who knows? But, I definitely will be playing for our little bean some day. I am a HUGE music lover and probably have the widest array of anyone. And funny about the student. DS often wants to name the 'baby' that's yet to be in my belly. He's come up with everything from Carla, Ace, Carlos, Jack, Handy Manny, etc. I love the name Jagger and am trying to convince DP of it. I was able to get DS to blurt that one out a time or two. DP isn't buying it though. I love their random little thoughts.
Seraf - Memphis is a VERY odd town. It is really conservative in the burbs, where we live - total Bible Belt extreme. The downtown areas, Midtown, etc are fairly diverse. The problem is that it's way too dangerous for us to hang out down there, especially with DS. Even going down to Beale Street isn't recommended, especially after dark. Things have gotten really bad here the last couple of years. Our neighbor was murdered in his driveway about 3 weeks ago. Scary! We moved here from Nashville, which is a very diverse town, so it's harder down here in the armpit. DS played tee-ball last spring on a church league just down from our house. We were the total standouts. No one really talked to us or would socialize, no matter how hard we tried. DP and I are pretty fem, so we looked like many of the other moms there, but we clearly stood out once everyone found out we were a couple. DS is very open with the fact he has 2 mommies, and will gladly tell everyone (including the tee-ball coaches wife). We've always taught him to love everyone, and that no family is always the same. I hope he carries that confidence on as he grows older.
Prettyisa - Were your parents still together when your mom came out? I've learned here that if the parents know us before knowing "about" us, then things in Memphis have been so much easier. We don't always get the strange looks. We're completely open, and participate equally in all of DS's school and sporting activities. DP and I want DS to grow up with families who are very similar to his, but that's sometimes hard to find in the south. DP lived in Milwaukee for many years and we have a ton of friends there with kids. We're dying to have that same make-up and are even hoping to move to the Chicago/Milwaukee area or the northeast within the next couple of years.
AFM - I had a gigantic cyst on my left ovary last month, so I am currently waiting on my RE's office to call to set up an u/s for Monday. Hopefully the alien is gone and I can start femara on Tuesday. Last month the RE's office screwed up and didn't order the meds, so I went all natural. I really am crossing fingers that this cyst is gone.
