Wow, it's quite neat seeing all the different things that we do. I'm Alison, and have just gone back to work. My DS Andrew has just turned one--we get a year of paid leave here in Canada, which was wonderful, because I wouldn't have been able to afford to stay home this long other wise (two words--student loans!). I'm a Children's Librarian at our local public library system, and for the most part, I do love my job. For fun I read, knit, hang out with Andrew (he loves outdoors and animals). His dad is a research chemist for a local nutriceutical (sp?) company--can you say fish oils? The cats certainly like the way he smells when he comes home sometimes!

Anyway, it was nice to meet all of you through your introductions.

I am Michelle, my girls are Beth, 7 1/2 and Sam, nearly 4. I am a legal secretary. I did this for 10 years before being a WAHM. I sold the biz I had while home and am now back to legal secretary.

For fun, I play with the girls outside. We hike, go to the zoo, have wild fairy filled picnics. Sometimes DH and I actually get to go out. I have some down time at work and spend it reading or online.

My DH and I have been married nearly 14 years. We have been together over 16. He is an IT guy for a medical billing software company.

We can't do real ice cream as we have gluten and dairy issues. I make ours homemade - chocolate coconut honey.

Who are you? Tegan

What do you do for a living? I'm currently a Bridal Consultant. : (I know...) I would someday love to be an illustrator, but I can not forsee that happening any time soon with an active toddler, and the sheer amount of work it would involve.

What do you do for fun? Family time is the best kind of fun for us. We take James to the beach a heck of a lot, we go to Farmer's Markets, the petting zoo, or just for a simple picnic at the park. I also recently became addicted to yoga.

Tell us about your SO if applicable Mike is in school five days a week for five hours a day, and works on weekends as well. He is training to be a pharmacy tech, and eventually wants to get into a hospital. He may take another course after this one- he's quite keen on the Nuclear Technician course but I'm trying to talk him out of it politely. The potential side effects of this job frighten me a lot. Of course I want him to be happy in what he does, but I'd also like to have a husband for a while, too. Selfish? Other than that, he is a fantastic father, and we are getting married on July 17th of this year.

Tell us about your kiddos. James is 13 months now, and has just begun walking. His favourite thing to do is to walk around with the phone and 'talk' into it all day long. He is the light of my life.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Or other "treat" I can not tolerate ice cream- the dairy makes me loopy. My favourite treat would have to be Tim Horton's timbits.

Can we see you? IE post a website addy if you have it. Sorry ladies, my site is temporarily down for the moment.

Tell us about your kiddos. My son, Maverick is 5. He's spirited, crazy, and hates to sleep. His mind and body move a million miles an hour and he talks, non stop. He's sensitive, loving, and my sweet, sweet boy. My daughter, Charis, is 3.5. She's an angel. She's happy and sweet, and so, so special. She's much more laid back, but very stubborn, and when she makes up her mind to do something, that's it. She loves to sing and laugh and play. She's absolutely fearless, which is crazy to me. They have an amazingly close relationship. It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever gotten to witness. I love them, desperately.
