How much do CDing parents have in common? - Page 9

post #161 of 168
I'm a CPA, but working very little right now, with so much SAHM work to do! Very fortunate that my client that I've done projects for six years now lets me work from home as much as possible

DH is an assistant principal at an alternative high school.

Although my outside-the-home profession isn't very crunchy, I seem to be embracing more and more crunchiness as I get older, lol. (Isn't it supposed to be the opposite!). I love cloth diapers, organic gardening, knitting, and recycling.

I am a wahm making slings. I also am working towards being a LLL leader and do quite a bit of volunteering for child and breastfeeding type causes in my town.

My dh is a librarian (he has his masters in library and information sciences) he also has a side business doing websites for a couple of governement organizations... AND he also has another business with a friend of his where they paint and sell miniature war guys on ebay. He's a busy man.

Crunchy... you could say that Ebreastfeeder, solids delaying, no vaccinations, co-sleeping, cloth diapering, both baby wearing, make own baby food, re-cycle, buy mostly organic.

However We do occasinally eat at McDonald's and I have a weekness for pretty non-organic clothing for the kids.

well im on mat leave for a year but i am a radiation therapist and my dh is in home renovations by summer and sea urchin diver in winter (have to do what u can, jobs scarce in newfoundland)

we are not really crunchy but for others looking in i suppose they think we are with cds, slings, old VW bus and our hemp necklaces and my long unkempt hair lol!!!!!
the longer i stay on MDC the more great things i discover and want to try so im sure we will become crunchier

before DS I was a microbiologist working for a pharma. company. I am on maternity leave and when it's over... I ain't goin' back. I worked for AstraZeneca, Berna Biotech, and Novartis... all I can say is RUN away!!!! : I have already started studying to be a Hebamme (midwife). It's challenging since the courses are in German, but my readings are in English. I am certified CBE. I am 26. I have my degree is microbiology and molecular cell science ssp: biochemistry, not that I'll be using it much!

My DH has his ph.D. in phiolosophy (arguing IS a waste of time with him). He owns his own business which deals with Internet Security... anti-virus software, etc. He also is a part owner of an ISP with a friend of ours. What do these have to do with philosophy?

I really am not crunchy for here at least... since most here eat organic, BF, recycle, birth naturally, and do the walk, bike, use a small car thing. I am slightly crunchy for CDing (it hasn't REALLY caught on here, but basic supplies are readily available), co-sleeping (but, not looked at as weird), slinging (also catching on since hospitals are encouraging it), delayed solids (that was a battle with MIL), mama cloth/diva cup (they've never heard of it). All and all not crunchy for here, but maybe a little for home. There's always room for improvement and you ladies are inspirational.

It is really fun reading about you guys!

Well, it seems I'm always on the tail end of these things, but here goes.

Before S/WAHM, I was a bookkeeper/office manager. Still bookkeeping, just very PT.

DH is a computer geek - sorry, "software support engineer".

Oh, and we're not really crunchy - we CD, EBF, co-sleep, try to gentle discipline , recycle, conserve what gas we can.

Wow, 9 pages!

I was a nurse in my pre baby life (I worked as a nanny too). Now I am a very talented spinner of multiple plates Eric graduated with a degree in economics but never really did anything with it. He had his own decorative concrete business for 5 years, then worked for someone else's concrete business after we were married, got laid off and sold cars (tried to anyway) for a while. I started OSDS and he quit his job and we've been doing that and other things ever since.

Very white bread... (or is it wet bread?) semi crunchy (cloth diapers, ebf, cosleep, quiverful)

I am now a partial SAHM/WOHM. Make sense? I have a part-time job as a research assistant (in the realm of educational technology) three days a week. I hate working out of the home, but it is what I have to do right now. I have fantasies about starting my WAH business, perhaps doing data analysis, grant-writing, or assisting with reports on a contracted basis. I wonder if that would pay.

Before I had my daughter, I was an elementary school teacher. I miss it terribly, but not the hours, bureaucracy, and inflexibility of schedule.

In addition to my work life, I am passionate about environmental issues, camping, national parks, knitting, and biology. I also love old movies, especially ones with Katherine Hepburn or Cary Grant.

I am also a co-leader for our local Attachment Parenting International branch, as well as a member of Nursing Mothers Counsel. I keep too busy.

Also, I am a newshound, someone who can't keep my head out of current events. Luckily, I am married to someone who is even more of a newsjunkie than I.

On a side note - does anyone know anything about incorporating a non-profit, particularly a multi-state one?

I am a sahm. Pre baby I was a student. I got pg with #1 2 weeks after I graduated and I never went back. I have an AA in Communications, an AGS and a certificate in Data Entry. I did study to be a midwife but I had to stop because I keep having my own, lol.

Dh is an appraiser (soon to be licensed). Before that he was a computer geek, in internet security, programming, you name it. (looks like lots of our dhs/so are into computers) He has a degree in drafting...so kinda makes sense to go into appraising.

I am pretty crunchy. Dh not so much. We co-sleep, ebf, non vax, non circ, wear our babies, we do our part for the enviornment..you know all that stuff. I even wear birks...
