I used to have another username before the new improved MDC - for some reason even Cynthia couldn't make the new system like me...so rejected. So, jonesing for some chitchat one night I joined as a new member- pickle it because I do tend to try to pickle everything I get my hands on ( I could tell you some horror stories).

Funny I never really liked umeboshi, but in my head, that's what I called my daughter when she was born and she would look up from the breast with her big fat cheeks... my little umeboshi.

I love she who stands adorned with children!! :LOL

My dogs' vet kept referring to me as my dogs' mom. Also my sister keeps calling them the kids, and at the time i was creating my user name they were all curled up asleep on my lap, really contentedly and like it was the best thing in the world, thanks mom. :LOL

oh, so uncreative here- it's a combo of me & dh's names. our friends' called us that when we were getting married. I'm playing around with the idea of changing my name when i hit senior status, but that involves creativity & i'm having a heck of a time thinking of anything :LOL :

Well,
My Username is pretty simple I am a Mami (We are Mami and Mama in my house), and Mapster is partially from my initials and a nickname that was given to me by friends I used to work with. I just stumbled over here through trial and error, since i used to lurk on the Mamatron boards a long time ago when we were TTC.

I'm crochetmama on some boards and c-mama on others. I chose c-mama because some people on non craft boards had NO idea what crochet was and would call me crotchet or something. So, I just shorten it to c-mama.

I LOVE to crochet and I'm a mom. I stay at home with my 6 kids and we homeschool. I've got a wonderful husband, 2 daughters (11 & 9) and 4 sons (7, 6, 2 and 7 months).

Great to be here.

I used to love to crochet! I picked up some wool a few months ago and found it became a total mess, I seem to have forgotten which hole to pull through. I'm not giving up though!

Welcome, c-mama! I live in Sth Florida when I live in the States too.

Hunger is political.  Wherever there is widespread hunger, it is because people with guns are preventing other people from bringing in food.

What a fun thread....I'm not so sure Ishould reveal the mystery that is brusselsprout

OK, so I will...

A looooooooooong time ago before I had kids, when I had first started dating thier father, I was hanging out with two of my friends (one of which is now my sister in law). It was late at night and we had all had too many mocha's (we were so the uber-cool coffee house chicks ) and had stopped a friend's work for something. One of them looked under the table and was wondering what the heck was under there (for the record it was a space heater) and being all amped up I said the first thing that popped out of my mouth (words that follow me and haunt me) "It was a brusselsprout..."long pause".....just one though". Um....yeah. So, I was chatting with one of those friends on IM when I signed up here, and thus I became brusselsprout :LOL

I am usually known as moonbeam or star on the internet - and I love light spectrums and rainbows and sparkly bright things. Probably should've called myself Moth but starlite kind of twinkles and sounds alot prettier, don't you agree?
