Hi thumbsup.gif I'm Dela! I'm a returnee from a loooong time and *ahem* a few kids ago! I don't even remember when I was here (maybe circa 2004 since all I remember is that my SECOND baby was... well, a baby!) let alone my screen name, so here I am again.

 

We have 7 kiddos now, working on #8. We also ahve other children living with us some and most of the time in a kind of complicated situation, but we're delighted to have them none-the-less. I'm due sometime in late Oct/early Nov. Hoping for a boy this time, the 2 year old is our only boy of the lot and we'd love for him to have a little pal that he can buddy up with when the girls get to be too much, as they quite often do. But another girl would be great too, and probably more likely given our track record!

 

I rejoined primarily because we're making a lot of life changes after relocating. Some in new directions, some getting back to where we started out and have drifted away from over the years. We're making the shift back to home(un)schooling for the children who went to school for a while, more natural living, trying to associate with more positive and like-minded people. We've always been wholly committed to AP but erm... less so to natural living, and are trying to improve upon that without going off the deep end, if you know what I mean.

 

Looking forward to meeting you all!


Peaceful, homeschooling, UC/HBing, select vaxing, breastfeeding, intactivist mama to a bunch of small people.
