Hi divine mothers and papas !

After lurking for quite some time, and seeing that I joined almost four years to the date, with no posts - thought I'd just jump in and say hello to this wonderful bunch of people.

I am a 43 yo secular HSing SAHM to two enchanted girls, ages 6 and 9. Been married for 20 years : {this year} to soul mate. Wow, I feel so *ahem* ...vintaged?

Thanks all for showing the way of grace.

I don't know how you did it! I just joined about a week ago and I read ONE post and couldn't NOT say something!

I was a long time lurker too... I still felt part of MDC but my post count sure didn't show it!

Welcome!

I'm holding back!

I've joined other list type things,written tomes -warm in my new buddyhood- and been met with deafening silence. Apparently not being one possessing oodles of social skills, I am now a bit shy.

You big chicken! 4 whole years of just thinking replys?

And now I see you've posted 5 times. Huh. Once you got started you couldn't stop.


Welcome to MDC! I can't imagine keeping my opinion to myself for that long.

Oh, and when you do say the wrong thing, and you might, don't worry. I have. Plenty. If you're not plain nasty about it, you 'll most likely be forgiven. (If not, PM me. Maybe we'll have to start an outcasts board.)

...mostly lurked as I pretty much saw lotsa my mommy stuff in other posts, which is comforting.

But your right, now I think I have posted at least three times in the last week.

Haven't even made a signature yet. Do they have a smilie to represent older children rolling their eyes? Tee Hee.

Howdy from another homeschooler and lurker (although I just joined earlier this year). I, as well, will be married for 20 years later this month! I have a dd (9) and a ds (7).

Cheers!
