I would be interested in finding single lesbian & bisexual mothers, or coupled lesbian & bisexual mothers. I'm a lesbian mother -- half of a couple . Send an email or PM if you're not comfortable posting publicly.

Hi! Lesbian mom here. 2 kids and a gorgeous, funny, smart dp! (I'm *alone* and able to post now because she took the kids to a playdate! She's 5.5 weeks postpartum).

There are lots of queer-friendly mamas here! And a ton of good parenting support and advice.

Welcome!

Howdy! Jen here, wife to Jo, soon to be bio mom to Sprout. Oh, and don't forget the two cats.

Wondering what it will be like if Sprout is a girl - we will be an all-girl household. Jo is deathly afraid of having a girly girl as a daughter - ribbons, bows, patent leather, etc.

Anyway - hi!

ps: Jesse: congrats on your wedding! That's some wedding photo!!

: mama to T 9/04 and E 11/08

Hello! I'm bi, married to a man, and for some reason I don't think I've even visited this forum to lurk in ages. T What's a "sapiosexual"? Does that mean that you're attracted to people in general?

Sapiosexual - yes, it means you are attracted to intellegence, it doesn't matter what gender (male, female, otherkin etc.) that intellegence is packaged in.

OMG, I had no idea there was a word for that... I suppose I should have looked. :LOL I just tell people that I'm much more worried about what's between their ears than between their legs; I guess that makes me a sapiosexual, too.

[/FONT]Hi! Lesbian mom here! My wonderful DP and I have a 6 month old daughter... We're also quite fearful that she might be a girly-girl, something that neither of us are. But, if she is... I'm sure we'll learn all about it. I'm the biological mom, and the final adoption hearing (for my partner to adopt her) is at the end of this month! Hoping to have more-- its so wonderful to be starting a family!

Wow - I've been sapiosexual for years, and didn't even know it!!! I'm also a bi Mom of 3, single now, lean more towards women, and a hippie, nerd, tattooed, pacifist, earth-mother type. On the subjct of lace & ribbons, I haven't had to deal with that yet (but I'm looking to adopt, so it still could happen), but elder son (23 YO) is gung-ho in the Army, and seriously into all that culture of macho. On one level, I am proud of him, because he is doing what he feels is right, but I still have moments when I wonder how he could really have sprung from my loins. But I love him to pieces, and we do have alot of fun teasing each other about our huge differences.

Rhu - mother,grandmother,daughter,sister,friend-foster,adoptive,and biological;not necessarily in that order. Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way (Jimmy Buffet)

Lesbian identified bisexual mama here! I have a ten month old girl. I am co-parenting with a fag.

Edited to add: I would like to say I am sapiosexual, but unfortunately I am not always attracted to intelligence.

Hey there! I'm a queer expectant mama too! I'm with in a relationship with my boyfriend right now, but I have decided that boys aren't where it's at for me, so I am going to split up with him pretty soon. I haven't told him this yet, however.

My 3 year old told me that "I need a girlfriend," which cracked me up.

I'm saphiosexual too, and LOVE my new term... I think I will need to use it in a sentence daily until I have educated allllll my friends!

I'm new to this board, I'm 37 my dp (F) is 33, we have a wonderful 9 y/o son (who I think will be a gayboy), and will begin trying for #2 early next year.

Great thread...
