How much do CDing parents have in common? - Page 4

post #61 of 168
I am a SAHM (but need to get a job soon!).

Before mommyhood, I never had a 'career'. I've worked with children for most of my adult life, either as a professional nanny or preschool teaching assistant.

I've also worked in retail management.

AND, I've worked for myself as an interior painter; muralist; and artist.

When my son goes to school full time, I'm going to have to get a career of sorts. lol.
I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
I'm thinking of taking a course and teaching Baby/Toddler Sign Language.

I'm a single mom.

Hugs,
Liz

I'm now a SAHM, but pre-babies I was a college student and bank teller. DH and I have bought a farm!! Chickens is what we (well he mostly) do. I do the accounting and office-type stuff. He looks after the birds and the eggs.
We're both 23 (well I will be in August). High school sweethearts !

I wouldn't know a designer handbag if it hit me in the head Too redneck i guess.

We're slowly getting crunchier...maybe crispy like somebody said. Breastfeeding (though I haven't EBFed yet), CDing, into natural health/homeopathy, starting to get into crunchy cleaning products, I'm a mad recycler...we're learning. Our chickens get their 'meds' from a naturopathic doctor!

I also started sewing at age 8, helping my grandma, who made my skating outfits.
My life has always been skating, sewing and now just sewing and Hunter

ETA: I'm a single mama and never knew what "AP" was until I had Hunter and that became my parenting style by nature, I just did what I felt was right for him and best for us as a family

That is so cool -- I figured skated til 10th grade!!!!! Really only seriously til 6th grade then we moved and I hated my new coach and new rink.

Oh and I was the same way with AP -- I was AP (BF, CD, Co sleeping, baby wearing etc.) and didnt even know it for the first 2 months!

I'm a SAHM, but pre-baby I was a grad student in developmental psychology- I quit ABD! : Dh is a computer programmer.

We're 27 and 28... I theoretically like crunchiness but dh is set in his ways and very resistant to my notions, though he does support cd'ing, and has recently started buying organic chips and snacks! (Gotta start somewhere I guess )

I'm a speech-language pathologist & DH is a video/film editor/producer. We went to undergrad at SUNY New Paltz which is in a VERY crunchy town, so i've always been crunchy-by-proxy. We're not all that crispy, but more than most of my friends! I'm 34 & he's 33.

Fun thread!

I'm a SAH-preggo wife, 32, no kids yet, used to be an English/Language Arts teacher, who quit to go to grad school to become a landscape architect, but quit to live a simple life in a small town - lol! Family and friends would probably describe me as pretty crunchy, but they haven't seen nothin' yet!

On the outside, DH is a 33yo family practice doctor, but on the inside he's a California surfer boy/naturalist/farmer.

Hi

I have been SAHM for just over a year. Before that I was a college student with a degree in Animal Science/pre-vet (emphasis in production livestock).

DH is a computer geek. He is the IS/IT manager in his large family business(farm service and products). He also writes computer programs on the side.

We also live on the large family cattle ranch and raise own own herd of registered show cattle.

We are both 23, but my birthday is in 1 month. We are slightly cruchy - me way more than him. I grew up in a very "cruchy" house (my mom was an LLL leader and got Mothering).

I SAH now but I am an attorney. I practiced commercial real estate up until I got pg with Chan (my 2nd kiddo). Now, I think of all the dipes I could buy with that salary! :LOL (seriously, though, I wouldn't give up the chance to stay home for anything) My husband is a VP at a mortgage brokerage company (basically he sells mortgages). We are 34 and pretty crispy.

This is so fun!

I'm a part time college instructor teaching Communications courses. Before having children I worked as an Instructional Designer (and still do some freelance with this) in the auto industry. My DH works for the biggest newspaper in our state and is a graphic artist/computer geeky love of my life.

I am a SAHM. Before the kids, I was in the VERY high end children's clothing business. DH runs his family's 75 year old business. I am 32, he is 31.

As for handbags, I stick to Prada, Tods, Hogan, Hermes and Marc Jacobs now. My Chanel and LVs are packed away to give to my daughter one day. I like a little funkier now. With the exception of my Birkin, which is a true classic.

Pre-Boo, I was a night auditor for a local hotel (very boring book work compounded with a ton of stress).

I'm 27.


DH works on an automotive assembly line. He'll soon be 24.
