Ok I made the leap to start a new NMY thread since the old one's title was out of date. :) We've been lower traffic recently, but I still <3 having other women at the same point as me to commiserate/share/gush/etc. with, so let's see if we can rock the new thread. ;)
I'm C/Ping the first post from the old thread to try and keep some continuity, but since there's been so much time since that thread was started, how about those of us start fresh by introducing ourselves and I'll gradually create a new "roster"?
Welcome to the Not Mamas... Yet Tribe, Part XXIII (Summer/Fall 2012)
(Thanks Rico'sAlice/oiseau for the text and oiseau for the previous thread shepherding!)
Iaorana! As-salaamu `alaykum! Merhaba! Γεια σου! Ãyubõván! Jambo! Hola! Boa tarde! Ciao! Guten Tag! Bonjour! Magandang Hapon Po! Selamat petang! Konnichiwa!
Hello! Returning members, glad you made it over, hope the trip wasn't too hard. Just put your feet up and relax for a while. We've got organic lemonade, coffee (regular and Swiss-water-process decaf), pastured raw milk, kombucha, kefir, whatever you're into. (No EBM available here- Sorry. Check out the Love Thread for that.)
Newbies! We are sooo excited you're here. We hope you stay a while and never leave... unless it is because you become a mama.
Anyway, this thread was originally started to give those of us who are not yet parents a forum here at MDC to discuss the unique concerns of those who are into NFL, and excited about AP but don't have any munchkins to apply these concepts to...yet. (Although some of us have furbabies, young family members, students, etc. that we are involved with.)
As I mentioned, a few of us have gotten pregnant while here, others are TTC now, some in the next few years, some of us aren't even close. We've also had the occasional visitor that is a "Not Mama...EVER" ie, male nannies and such. We're happy to have all y'all!
So here we are. And here you are. Let the party begin!
