Hello everyone! I'm Angela, and I've been lurking here since time immemorial but have just resolved to actually participate. And now I have to figure out what to say by way of an intro.

I've got a five-year-old daughter, I live in Baltimore, and I work in DC as a secretary at a labor organization. My partner is a stay-at-home dad, and we're opening a candy store next month. I'm lefty (make that far lefty) and what I might call semi-crunchy, heh. We're unschooling this year and considering our options for next year, we selectively vax, and we try our best at gentle discipline/non-coercion, but a lot of the reason I'm here is that I'm trying to be better at both.

What else? We're a multi-racial family, our kid is hilarious, and I'm typing this almost upside down because I'm recovering from a spinal tap and have to be horizontal.

I'm sure there's more to me than all that, but that's a decent thumbnail sketch. I look forward to getting to know everyone!
