Jeni,

Wow, your sling look great! Your prices are so downright reasonable that had I found your site earlier, I would have bought one of yours instead of making my own! I hope you manage to do good buisiness.

Your page is bookmarked for future baby presents...

Thanks! I've been doing very well with it. It is a very new business, but already I have a good reputation built. I love making the slings, it is the best job I have ever had. The design of my sling is very unique. I've only seen one other WAHM that has a similar design...the adjustable pouch. I tried making every kind of sling, a pouch, a Maya wrap style, this one was the best thing since bread and butter!

Sorry to brag myself up! I am just very excited about it

I'm Kate- I'm currently a Captain in the US Army. I work in transportation logistics. Although in about 2 months I'll be a WAHM instead of a WOHM. Then I'll be a Bradley Method Childbirth Educator, a doula, and a Pampered Chef consultant. (I like to stay busy)

I love almost any outdoor activity. I can't wait for summer and swimming. I also love to cook, read, and write. My secret ambition is to be a published writer one day.

My DH is a SAHD for the moment until I finish my service obligation to the Army. He left the service in December and is currently job hunting in the logistics management field.

My DD is 5 months and growing like crazy.

My fav ice cream currently if the Organic Decaf Coffee ice cream by Stonebrook Farms

I'm too technologically lame to have a website....

How cool you all are and what a privilege to be among this group!

Who are you?
I'm mama to two boys -- just 4 and 20 months

What do you do for a living?
I'm just starting a job at a non-profit agency in two weeks doing programming, community relations, and fundraising. I'm very excited about returning to work and the position. I'll be working five days, 9 AM - 3 PM. DS #1 will be at a great pre-school mornings and some afternoons, and DS #2 will be with a beloved sitter and DH.

What do you do for fun?
I write -- personal essays and children's literature. I have yet to have my kid's stuff published, but I got a really nice rejection today! And play trains, lots and lots of playing trains.

Tell us about your SO if applicable
DH is an amazing English prof. in a bad situation, which he's getting out of, which is why I'm going back to work. With luck, he'll find adjunct teaching and freelance writing and will have time to watch the kiddies, while I hold down the health benefits and earn a dependable income. He's an incredible guy, if a bit messy. We'll be married eight years this summer and his troubles at work have only strengthened our partnership.

Tell us about your kiddos.

DS #1 would crawl back inside, if he could.
DS #2 is strong-willed.
But they're both bright, energetic, fun.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Or other "treat"
Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk is the only ice cream worth eating, IMHO.

Talk about lack of sleep!

Tell us about your kiddos.
Well, we just have the one so far. She's just turned 7 months and her first tooth came through yesterday! Welcome to world of teething.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Or other "treat" chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! And did I mention, chocolate?

Nice to meet all of you.

Pretty new here so this thread is great!

My name is Cheryl and I'm 28.

I have been in the U.S. Navy for 8 years. I just finished 4 years of sea time last year and am FINALLY on shore duty. I have 2 years left in. I am working on becoming certified as a massage therapist/naturopath and eventually a doula.
I spend just about all of my time off making up for lost time with my 6yo DD and being a human pacifier for my 6mo teething DS. When I can break free (no pun intended), we hike, go to the beach, and plant things. I am interested in sustainable living and spend a lot of time reading about it and associated topics so that whwen we finally escape the grip of urban San Diego, I will be at least somewhat knowledgeable. Recently, I have been trying to teach myself to sew in order to make my own diapers. Pretty much a neverending quest to live as natural a life as possible on an absurdly tight budget.

DH Chris, 30, and I have been married for 7 yrs, together for 7 yrs and 3 weeks :LOL. Gotta love Vegas! We met in the Navy and within a few days were head over heels. Haven't looked back since. He got out when we were pg w/ DD and has been a SAHD ever since. He is a USMC Reservist and luckily didn't get activated. He plans to join AK state troopers once I am out and let me stay home for a while because he is the most awesome man ever.

DD, Mina Isobel, is 6 and HUGE. Her b-day is in Dec so she is in kindergarten and towers over all the children in her class. She is full of energy, never stops talking, and wants to be an artist. Lately, she has become fond of Star Search and is always asking how to get on. (How do you tell your child she's tone deaf??) I love listening to her offkey singing. Especially when it's the Star Spangled Banner on the toilet. DS , Duren Michael, is 6mos today! It is a totally new experience with him. I knew nothing about pumping w/ DD so only BF for 3 mos. Now I can't imagine stopping. He is a chunky little cuddlebug and I love it. He is way more mellow than DD but i think that is b/c of a more AP approach.
He is a captive audience for DD and will watch her antics all day long and giggle, wiggle, and yell. They are my joy.

My favorite ice cream is Godiva Chocolate Rasberry Truffle but I only crave it when AF is in town, so hopefully that will be a while. For treats lately, I can't get enough cherry licorice.

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?
I'm Erin.

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.

You can see DS (and occasionally me) at www.davidkrewinghaus.com/graham

Hi everyone! Fun thread!

Who are you?
I'm Debi.

What do you do for a living?
I work for a major non-profit professional association, heading up their web operations (which are complex and many!).

Who do you do for fun?
I love to play my fiddle and sing old country/bluegrass/old time music. I also read a lot of contemporary literary fiction, and actually enjoy cooking and baking vegetarian and non-dairy food.

Tell us about kiddo:
DD is 22 months and a delight! She's very talkative, curious, sunshiney, and affectionate. Right now, her big interests are coloring, mothering her dolls, and going to the tiny zoo in our nearby park to see their odd collection of animals -- 5 llamas, a cow, a sheep, two goats, and a swan.

Tell us about SO:
My husband is a wonderful husband and father, a true partner in everything. He's gorgeous, sweet, smart, and fun -- I literally have NO complaints!

Favorite ice cream / treat:
I'm allergic to dairy, but I love both Safeway's store brand of chocolate sorbet and Tofutti's Chocolate Cookie Crunch.

I don't have online photos anywhere that isn't password protected, but picture the gerber baby as a toddler, and you've honestly got my little doodlebug!

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.

Mary

What do you do for a living?
Academic librarian. I just got tenure--whooo-hooo! I'm also a registered patent agent and was a chemist in a former life.

Read and cook. I used to love to collect antiques, prior to the kiddies.

DH is a high school science teacher. He is the best dad on the planet and is a pretty wonderful husband as well. We actually were high school sweethearts. How sickening is that? We have been married 23 blissful years.

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.

Who are you?
I'm Michelle, 35, mummy to Ainsley, 5 months.

What do you do for a living?
I'm a social worker, currently working with the Canadian federal government on strategies for youth wellness. I'm on maternity leave until November 2004, and at the moment, I'm finishing up a thesis. I also do freelance writing and documentaries.

What do you do for fun?
We like to go on hikes, camping, go to our cottage, play with the baby and the cats. I also like to read and write poetry, fiction and non-fiction. For "fun" I also get involved in social justice causes near and dear to my heart.

Tell us about your SO:
My sweetie has a "Chandler" job. He works for a bank, and no one but him is quite sure what he does. It's something to do with numbers!:LOL

Tell us about your kiddos.
DD Ainsley is 5 months, and has brought me more joy than I ever thought possible. I can't wait to have another!

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Blueberry.

Just found this.

Who are you? I'm Alison, and I'm 29.

What do you do for a living? I'm the front desk receptionist at a gym, late nights. I work about 20 hours a week. Sometimes more.

What do you do for fun? Run, write, play with my kids, and pet my cats.

Tell us about your SO if applicable He's Gabe, and there is no one else like him. He's the lab manager of a photography studio. Taking pictures and playing with and in photo chemicals are his true loves, right after me, of course. We've been married for seven years, together for almost nine.

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.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Or other "treat" I love Breyers Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
