My first child's name is Sam - but we sometimes call him Sammo.

Children deserve the respect of puzzling it out.

It's a combination of my first (Kate) and last names (beginning with Pie). Pretty unoriginal.

My son has aspergers and fixates on dinosaurs. Since he was 3 he could name them all- and naturally we each had a Dino counterpart. I am triceratops, he is velocaraptor, sissy is bracheosaurus. I even have a triceratops tat.

Mine's pretty self explanatory.

I haven't announced this pregnancy yet so I created this profile until I am ready to announce it, which will be soon! I'm 11 wks tomorrow, so 12 wks next week, which is when we plan to spill the beans.

Moxy because my husband said I have it when we were early in our marriage. It's something like spunky but... more, I guess, lol. The Girl part, eh, I tried to find something better but Moxymama and everything related was taken. I'm not too fond of it because I'm NOT a girl, I'm 35, but I'm too lazy to change it. Oh, and I might have spelled Moxy wrong... Moxie?? Shrug...

about 8 years ago a guy called me an angel. I got all mad and said, if I'm an angel I must be chained to the ground. So, chainedangel. It's taken on alot more personal meanings for me in the years since. And like Triceratops I have my nickname tattooed on me.

I like your username! Not only am I also a Mrs. Mike, but that's the name of one of my favorite books as a kid. It's about a woman who marries a mountie and lives in the Yukon.
