We are pleased to introduce BathrobeGoddess.




She is the moderator of Healing Birth Trauma, Fertility, Life With a Babe and The Trading Post. BathrobeGoddess has been a member since 2001 and has been a moderator since 2007.


How did you first find Mothering? MDC?
I am a long time reader, since my 15 year old daughter was a baby, so I saw the ad in the magazine for MDC when it was first getting started. I've been hooked ever since!


What’s your favorite MDC forum?
I like to hang out in Family Safety and TTC. I love to see happy BFP posts in TTC and I enjoy reading about car seats in FS.




What keeps you coming back to MDC?

I love connecting to to other AP families all over the world. I feel much less isolated and "out there" in my parenting choices by hanging out on the forums.


Can you tell us a little bit about your family?
There are six of us! I have four children, girl, boy order, Laurelle age 15, Ori age 6, Yarrow age 3 and Linus 19 months. The youngest three are TV and video free. I'm very lucky to teach college course online so I can stay home and I am working on a PhD in Educational Leadership at Colorado State University. Actually, both my hsband and I are grad students, My dh Brice is working on a MA in Ethnic Studies as well. We live next to the foothills in Northern Colorado near Ft Collins (where both my dh and I went to jr high and high school) and I can't imagine living anywhere else!



Is there something that you do now that you probably never would have done if it weren’t for MDC?
Homebirth, I think I would have still supported it but not made the plunge myself!



Tell us something most don’t know about you.
I love to gamble, particularity play slots!




What are you most proud of?
That I am able to juggle all my balls without often letting one fall! I am the family organizer and I think everyone in my family gets equal attention from me. I even get to sew and knit sometimes!



Are you a night owl or an early-bird-gets-the-worm?
I'm an early bird by nature but a night owl by necessity!



As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? What about now?
An opera or Broadway performer. I started college as a vocal music major. Now, I just want to train teachers how to be more developmentally appropriate and change the way we, as a nation look at child's play for the better! I'm a licensed early childhood teacher as well.


Do you consider yourself introverted or extroverted?
Introvert for sure!


Would you say you are neat or messy?
I would say I'm very balanced here, I don't go crazy either way.

Do you like to cook? What is your ideal meal?
I love to cook! I can'tsay I have an ideal meal but I am loving Ethiopian food and Vietnamese food at the moment


What's your favorite/go-to cleaning product?
water lol



What do you consider your worst vice?
coffee house lattes...I love them!


What’s sitting on your dining room table right now? Bedside table?
A serger and some of my dh's school papers are on our table. I don't currently have a bedside table because my youngest is side-cared there instead.

What's the last book you've read?
Writing Literature Reviews and Last Child in the Woods

Favorite all-time movie?
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Clerks run neck in neck


Favorite book?
Stranger in a Strange Land

Do you have other sites you enjoy participating/reading at?
facebook certainly has its claws into me lol



Do you have a favorite saying or personal motto?
"It will all be over soon!"

Not all those who wander are lost

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

Sweet! Go Rams! My Dh is taking me to Black Hawk for my birthday this year. Part of it is making that $50 stretch for several hours!
