Hello Ladies!

I've have been lurking here for awhile now and figure its time I introduce myself and start posting.

I am married to my best friend and love of my life and we have a beautiful dd who is 19 months. We live on Vancouver Island, BC!

I have had a hard time finding other AP mommies where I live so its nice to have a place to come and talk with other like-minded moms!

Hi! My husband and I are from the island, but have lived on the mainland now for almost five years. We grew up in Nanaimo.

Welcome to Mothering!

Wow... lots of other VI mommies!

Neva - Little Me is one of my favorite places to shop! The ladies are sooooo helpful with cloth diapering... they know so much! Are you from Campbell River, or further north?

ooohh, I did see the bunnies! Very cute.
I'm midway finishing sewing a rag doll and then we are at our stuffie limit I think. I was definately tempted by the bunny though.
I went with one of the board books for my little one. She loves looking at books and can almost recite her favs. I just love the ones that Little Me has tucked away on the bottom shelf.

I'm also going to sew up some beanbags and thrift a basket. What toddler doesn't like to throw things? Her big brother can get in on the action too.

lol, I think I'm getting more excited about Easter than they are.

Hope you're enjoying the snow today!
