Ok, how many deep are we anyway?

You don't have to be living in NZ at the moment to sign the roll either...

I'll start,

Charlotte, 25, mum of Ziggy who is 15mos, living on Waiheke Island, but grew up in Auckland/Hamilton/Taumarunui....

Kiwi mamas...come out, come out, where ever you are

Hi I'm Bethany. Just registered so thought I'd say hi to the people who are a bit closer to home. I live in Haumoana in the sunny Hawkes Bay. No kids at the moment. Just learning and planning.

Hi, I'm Esther and SAHM in Howick, Auckland. As you can see from my signature we have 2 children, a two year old and an almost 11 week old bubba. :-) Moved to Auckland from South Africa in 2002 for our personal safety and really loving it here in Godzone.
How can I add more smilies onto my signature? It would only let me use one.

I'm a "faux-Kiwi" mama. I believe we connected on a thread I started a couple months ago. I tend to come and go from MDC in bursts. :LOL

I'm Krista, mama to 5 year old, Ethan, and 16 month old Silas. They are spirited, mischievous, challenging, and I wouldn't trade them for the world. I home/unschool, also.

Hubby and I are Canadian and have permanent residency here. We lived in NZ briefly in 2004/05 and just moved back more indefinitely this January. We're currently in Wanganui and loving it.

Krista , glorious solo mum to Ethan (7), Silas (3), and Rory (4 months).

I'm Australian, but I've lived in Hamilton since I was six. One husband, one baby (Rowan, female, six weeks old), two chickens (Bridget and Saffron, one year old, currently off the lay and consequently risking their feathery necks).

If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

Hi everyone, I'm Rochelle & live on the North Shore in Auckland. We're still learning as we go with the kids but having lots of fun along the way. Daniel will be 6 in September, Maia is just 4 & Ava is 18 mths.

Great to find these forums, hopefully I'll have some time to sit down & read up on all the amazing information on here.

Hi, I'm Nikki, based in Kapiti. I've been around these boards for almost 5yrs, but wasn't posting here for ages, but have been more active in the past year.

I recognise a few of you from other message boards or blogs (not sure if you'd know me though lol).

It's a Delight-Filled Life.

I'm SO ready for spring. We spent a week over in Sydney, where it was rainy, but WARM (relatively) and coming home to our cold, damp house was more than a little depressing.

I HAVE been thrilled to see the sun 3 days in a ROW this week. And my clothes are actually hanging outside for a change.

Bring on the spring!

Krista , glorious solo mum to Ethan (7), Silas (3), and Rory (4 months).
