TMBM (The Mama Below Me)

post #1 of 116
Thread Starter 

Just a little get to know you game. Here's how it works: I will say something like, "The mama below me is/does/has whatever," and if that's true of you, you answer and then get to respond with your own, "The mama below me..." Does that make sense? I hope so! So, here we go!

 

The mama below me play a musical instrument.

post #2 of 116

I play piano and recorder :)

 

The mama below me has already bought new baby stuff.

post #3 of 116

I totally scored a like new carseat and stroller at a yard sale yesterday for 15 bucks :)

 

The mama below me has a garden.

post #4 of 116

I love to garden! Right now I'm growing garlic, onions, shallots, lettuce, spinach, radishes, kale and beans. I live in a zone 3, so the warmer weather veggies won't be planted until June. 

Jackies - I love that you play the recorder!

darkblue - Nice yard sale score!

 

 

The mama below me plans to practice EC with her next baby.

I will. I did with my last two, too.

 

The mama below me is a night owl.
 

post #6 of 116

Turning into a night owl!.. I am blaming pregnancy!

Normally I am an early bird kinda gal (something DH dislikes haha) but I could happily stay up all night now!

 

Umm Ok.. The Mumma Below Me has travelled Internationally....

post #7 of 116

True! I have been to Romania, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, and France. I loved every minute and I can't wait to go back!

 

The mama below me is vegan.

post #8 of 116

I am! For nearly 6 years now, and mostly vegetarian for 8 or so before that. People were betting that I wouldn't make it through pregnancy, but besides the nausea, which is now fading a bit, I actually feel pretty great, and I actually haven't had many aversions to vegetables, or most of the things I usually eat. 

 

The mama below me can speak a language other than English.

post #9 of 116

I'm fluent in American Sign Language, though that's not really "speaking"...lol. smile.gif I've been signing since I was 12. 

 

The mama below me works out of the home.

post #10 of 116

I do half of my work at home on the computer. It's great to be around my family, although it's easy to be distracted by the internet :)

 

The mama below me took a nap today.

I took a nap today, but I was in the ER all night and didn't sleep.

 

TMBM likes urban fantasy novels.
 

post #12 of 116

:) book obsessed Mumma here! Urban Fantasies are probably my favourite at the moment, but ANYTHING i can get my hands on I just eat up!

 

Ummm... The Mumma below me is planning a home birth or UC !!

post #13 of 116

I am planning for my fourth home birth - as the mama.  I was born at home, was there for my brothers' two births at home, and have attended several other home births as a family member/doula.  It's normal to me!  I do worry that I might end up in the hospital if I have the baby too early, since my last baby was born at 36+4.

 

The mama below me . . . works outside the home (at least sometimes)!

post #14 of 116

Nope.  I stay home full time!  I am also a part time student but that's also done at home right now! :)

 

The mama below me loves to dance!
 

post #15 of 116

I loooove to dance. I like dancing at a show, at the house, or at a class. We took DD to a camping music festival when she was 1 and 2, and we had a blast each time. I'd dance with her in an Ergo or we'd chase each other in a circle. I'd love to go this summer, but it's probably not in the cards since we're saving for the birth. Next summer though!

post #16 of 116

I also LOVE to dance.  I will also dance anywhere the mood strikes, sometimes the grocery store.  I have a long history of dance training and just took my first pole dancing class last week. It was safe for the first trimester, and I am so sore.  I've definitely developed a new found respect for boudoir dance.  Anyhoo, it was fun and empowering.

The mama below me has a hidden talent she would like to share...

post #17 of 116

I sooo wish I could dance lol. The snoopy dance is about my limit.

 

I have a fairly secret hidden talent. I make Waldorf dolls, but usually only for my kiddos or for close friends. DH and besties are constantly trying to convince me to sell them but I feel bashful about it.

Also, I cook/bake like mad...I make all of our bread, granola, danishes, croissants, cakes, pies, etc. and I love, love love to cook. (and eat eat.gif)

 

The mama below me is tattooed.

post #18 of 116

Another dancer here! I used to breakdance back in college. orngbiggrin.gif

 

I have two tattoos on my back - both are Japanese kanji symbols. One means "Love to be different" and the other means "Love hurts". Also done during college. redface.gif

 

The mama below me is an only child.

post #19 of 116

Only child here.

 

Thats why I would love to have a bigggg family! I think 4 kids sounds like a perfect number! Looking forward to it!

 

The Mumma below me has made her own clothes 

post #20 of 116

OK, so I have made my own clothes but it has been a looong time. Does that still count? When I was in high school I as seriously a home ec. addict. I took every cooking and sewing class they offered and was an A+ student (but ONLY in those classes). I loved it. I did the extra credit for fun. orngbiggrin.gif My life's goal was to be a SAHM (seriously...it was all I ever wanted).
So, I made lots of cute clothes. Sometimes I would just take a huge piece of white fabric and tie dye it cool colors and create some thing fun with the sewing machine!
Sadly though I moved out of my parents house my senior year and have never owned a sewing machine since. greensad.gif That was (gasp!)...20 years ago. I have borrowed friends machines over the years to do a project here or there though. Maybe I should invest again in one!

 

The mama below me uses raw milk.
