Hi Fellow Mommies!
My name is Kathleen and I am still pretty new to parenting. My little boy was born 12/12/02, and he's made my life so full and wonderful!
I'm so glad Mothering Magazine exists! It is, a lot of the time, like getting a heartfelt letter from a dear friend. It really makes me feel warm to know that many other parents are respecting and loving their children, rather than just "raising" them. I also learn a lot about safety issues (vaxes, PVC in toys, etc) from the magazine that I wouldn't ordinarily hear, and that, plus other research on my own, makes a big positive difference in how I choose to parent my child.
Oh well, little nursling is beginning to stir...gotta wrap this up!
I'm so happy to meet you all!
