... been lurking here for a couple of weeks and *loving* it - I've learned *so* much - and just wanted to say hello.

I'm Roon: 11 years married to husband, Scott, and first-time mother to DS, Bec, born March 11th, 2004. I'm a massage therapist living in Ridgeland [Jackson], Mississippi, an un-denominated () Christian, INTJ/5w4, who loves reading, message boarding and Crowe-watching. Breastfeeding by intent but came to AP and bedsharing completely by accident (just felt *so* right) so I'm thrilled to find such a large, like-minded community.

Anyway, hi. Look forward to meeting y'all.

Welcome Roon!
Glad you're joining us!
Hope you have as much fun on the
boards as I do!
I'm Chrissy from Ohio. My DS is almost 10months.
I'm a SAHM but I'm looking to go back to work in the Fall
as a social worker.
Anyway, welcome!!
Chrissy

And what a coincidence - my roommate in college was named Chryssy and is now a social worker too! Small world! Thanks for the welcome.

Hey mama! I know how hard it can be to find like-minded folks in the deep south (we go to memphis quite often)! Hope you get lots of good info and support here

Welcome.
I smiled when I saw where you are from, for some reason I always thought it was so romantic and elegant to live in Miss. Am I right?

Thanks for the welcomes, all. Friendly place you've got here!

LOL, dready*mama - we're so far South that Memphis feels Northerly! But as far as southern cities go, Jackson's pretty cosmopolitan. I'm originally from Old Metairie [New Orleans] so it took a little getting used to - {{{culture shock}}} - but now I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. It's clean, safe, pretty, friendly, growing, very inexpensive, and surprisingly urbane. I had planned to go to the local LLL meeting last week but, ironically, was stuck at home breastfeeding DS who pitched a fit right as we were walking out the door. I'm hoping for next month and to meet more like-minded folks there.

Funny, Magster - I imagine the same thing when I think of Brazil! Let's just say we're not exactly Gone With The Wind but we're not all Mississippi Burning either.

Cheers, Ligmom - - ever come this way?

Thanks again for the welcome, everybody. DS is finally asleep - time to nab a quick shower!

*poof*
