Hi there, So fun to read all about you. I thought I should join in after checking the boards regularly for a few weeks.
Who are you?
What do you do for a living?
I'm a sociology professor. I teach, do research, train graduate students, and help run our department. My research is on gender, work, and family in the U.S. -- so I'm learning about it all from the inside now that I'm a mommy!
Who do you do for fun?
Right now - hold, kiss, play with ds. I used to and hope to soon practice yoga, read (mysteries!), go for walks when it is warm enough, cook and have friends over. We're active in a Unitarian Universalist Church.
Tell us about kiddos:
DS is 8 months old, teething, *about* to crawl (he wants to so badly!), pulling up to stand some. He is a super fun guy, who smiles and laughs a lot and gives me very wet kisses that melt my heart.
Tell us about SO:
DH is in transition... He's a terrific daddy and has been at home PT since DS was born. He's now unemployed and trying to figure out if he wants to continue being an art director for an ad agency, go into political organizing as a job, or be a SAHD who does a lot of political organizing as a volunteer. It is cool to see so many of you have SAH/WAH partners -- makes me think we should talk more about that option.
Favorite ice cream / treat:
Love all ice cream, especially B&J's Cherry Garcia. But I'm off dairy while bf'ing so I've been making do with Girl Scout cookies this week.
