Agreed!

Hi. I am Teri, with 19 month old son Orin, and husband Paul (dated/married for 15+ years. Yikes!). I love mama's night out. So, much fun - even if I do get a little loopy on Caribou's sugary berry drinks. We live in Bloomfield with our very shy Cavalier dog, Simba.

If anyone is interested in joining us at the zoo this Friday, pm me.

Or if you are in the neighborhood, stop by! We have a ton of toys, thanks to Craigslist, mom to mom sales and online shopping! :

Hi I'm Amanda I'll be 30 next month (yikes). I've been married to Charley almost 6yrs and together 11. We live in Ferndale with our two sons Liam (3) and Brody (9 months) and our crazy beagle Belle. DH has taken well to all this AP, Co-Sleeping, Cloth Diapering extremely well and I love him for that.

I have known Vanessa you could say most of my life not only is she a great friend but a wonderful mother. I'm new to the coffee nights but love getting together, and I'm always up for a playdate!!

Hi I'm Shawnna- 40 years old!!!! I'm a vegetarian, who has been with DH for 15 years now (married for 8). We live in Northville and have 2 high energy boys- almost 3 and almost 6. My 3yo is still nursing round the clock, so if I'm a little groggy that's why

I'm Jenny, 23.

Mommy to Madeleine. 3/15/08. She's the most amazing little girl ever. I'm sure everyone thinks that about their babies, but it's true, she's amazing.

My bf, Kris, works at McLane Food Service Dist. in Plymouth and at the airport as a PSA. He's hoping to find something better soon. Not having much luck unfortunately.

We live in Westland with our crazy miniature dachshund, Matilda, and a bunch of fish.

I'm currently doing odd babysitting jobs and looking for a nanny job that I can bring my daughter to...unfortunately not having a lot of luck with that either. I am working on becoming an independent certified instructor with Baby Signs. In the future I'd like to look into possibly becoming a post-partum doula. And I'd also really like to move out of Michigan (maybe to the Chicago area or the Boston area?) and open up a children's book store/natural toy store.

Interests? Musicals, reading (as if I EVER find time to read a book anymore), and spending time with my family.

I never thought I'd get so into all this "natural stuff" before I got pregnant, but now I feel like such a source of support and information for my other friends with children when it comes to breastfeeding, vaccinations, babywearing, natural toy websites, etc. On the flipside though, I feel much more disconnected from some of my friends who are much more "mainstream" now.


PM me if anyone is ever interested in getting together...always looking for playdates and fun stuff to take Madeleine to!

I'll play, even though I haven't yet been able to make a coffee night. I'd love to--it's just so far for me. One of these days....

I'm Sarah and I live in Plymouth with my husband, my sweet little DD Charlotte (23 months) and two wild and crazy Jack Russells, Jack and Bella.

I'd love to meet some other mamas in my area. Anybody else in the Plymouth/Canton/Northville area? We are always up for playdates!

I work full time, but am fortunate to have a job where I am able to work from home a couple of days a week. DH works for a nonprofit in Ann Arbor. We used to live there when we were in grad school and if the housing market ever improves, we would like to move back.

My interests include reading, cooking, dogs, spending time with my family, when I have time I do some needlework. I used to dabble in soap-making and other natural body care stuff but I haven't done much of that since DD. DH got me a wonderful sewing machine for Christmas but I have yet to crack it open, though I'd absolutely love to learn how to sew. Hopefully this winter!

We have always been pretty careful about what we eat, we are former vegetarians (now we are omnivores again), buy as much organic as possible, limit junk food, etc. We try to live as low impact as possible. Charlotte still nurses and we co-sleep. I tried to leave her in her room last night by herself but I missed her so much I went in and slept in her bed with her!

Anyone else here on Facebook? It's my new online "addiction", just joined a couple of weeks ago at my sister's urging. Way too much fun, as if I needed another way to waste time online besides MDC!

hey sarah, i used to live and work in downtown plymouth up until a few months ago. i worked at the plymouth coffee bean and when i got pregnant with dd, i left and got a job at starbucks, so ive probably seen you around! sometimes we plan a livonia moms coffee night, i think we have one set for the 25th if you can make it! its a small but cozy group, and you could bring charlotte, ill have grace with me - she just turned 1. i have facebook - do you search by email on there? i dont remember! i also got a sewing machine from my ex's mother for christmas and ive never used it either! i keep telling myself every day that this will be the day i get it out, but seriously?! sewing machine + toddler? HAHAHA. yesterday, she was walking around with a hat i had started to crochet and the crochet needle, all proud of herself. i really want to learn to make soap, i was actually looking some things up the other day. we try and eat really well too, at least when dd is with me. i work at whole foods in ann arbor, so the discount helps a little

i hope to meet you soon, i think we would have a lot in common and i could always use some more mama friends, i dont have too many, and dd's dad still lives in plymouth so i'm out that way fairly often, especially on mondays because that's when i pick her up from her weekend at his house.

hope to see you at coffee too!

Hi!

I am Kelly (31), married 6 years to Dave. We live in Canton. We have a son, David who is 3.5 born via csection (he was breech) at 36w. Since then, I have educated myself here at Mothering and other places. We had DD, Rachel on 12/20-7 via a hospital VBAC with the St. Joe Nurse Midwives. It was awesome!! I hope I can talk DH into another baby and a possible birth center or homebirth.

I recently started knitting (mostly longies for the fall/winter) and I love to read. We like to camp (Stacia - We camp at the Waterloo recreational campgroup at Big Portage Lake, it is great, gets cell reception and is only 1/2 hour from AA). I also garden and I can see my tomatos turning oranger from the window right now, can't wait to see them red and juicy!

anyway, I hope to start making it to coffee night but DD only wants me to put her to bed and she turns into a pumpkin if she is awake past 7:30. So, we will have to see about that.

It has been great to read about everyone!

Hi everyone!

I'm Jackie (as you can see from my sooo original s/n, lol!) I'm 32, married to Dave for 12 years. We have four kids, a 12 yo DS (he has aspergers), 9 yo DD, 4 yo DS, & an almost 3 yo DS. We currently live in Garden City, we've been wanting to move out of the area for a while now, plus, we need a bigger home, so we can plan on TTC #5!

We love camping too, & go to waterloo (sugar loaf lake) quite a bit. My DH is a water sports nut, but I rather just peacefully float on a raft or go fishing!

Just wanted to say "Hi!"

Hey jackie!

I've been thinking about camping at Sugar Loaf because it is close enough to Ann Arbor that I can still be on call. Tell me more about it! You wouldn't happen to know if you can get a cell phone signal out there, would you?

I would love to hear about any more metro Detroit camping too. My kids are going out of town without me this weekend because I'm waiting on a baby.

Sure thing, that would be fun! I'll let you know if I ever find my supplies behind the massive pile of outgrown baby gear in my basement, lol! (I actually did go through my soap-making supplies shortly before I had DD and I had to throw away so much, it was all expired or dried up, it was so sad...I don't even want to think about how many hundreds of dollars worth of essential oils I had to toss. Now with a toddler around I'm afraid to even attempt anything, the lye part is so scary.)

Last time we went to Sugar loaf, I didn't use my cell, but my niece couldn't get a signal on my Mom's phone....& she walked all over trying! (she's a teen, lol!)

I did get a signal up at Pontiac Lake campgrounds, but, that might be too far from Ann Arbor?

Bummer, man! We camped a few weeks ago at the horse camp up by Hadley and had reception, though it's like an hour drive to A2.

(I'm frog. turtle and I have no kids, a passel of cats and we live in Ypsi. We're big campers--were up in Caseville at Sleeper a few weeks back, heading for Hueston Woods in Ohio in a few weeks.)

Hi there.

OK ok, so better late than not at all, right? LOL

I am Leah. Proud Mommy of those strange little creatures I affectionately refer to as Thing 1 (Ollie -3.5) and Thing 2 (Noah Lilly- 1.5).

My husband, Joel, and I have been married since '02 and live in West Bloomfield with our kids, two cats and one used-to-be-real-fluffy-until-we-got-her-shaved-for-the-summer dog.

We also homeschool/ unschool our little ones and are looking forward to doing so until they can convince us that they'ed be better off otherwise. LOL

I'd love to get together with other AP moms/dads and kids for playdates anytime some of you might be available. Our schedule is pretty wide open.

(We also stopped by the new Whole Foods in Rochester last Thursday and it is a pretty cool experience. It's almost an exact copy of Wegman's -for those who know what that is-except they're not open 24/7.)

The Doulas of Northwest Ohio are Proud to Present

Orgasmic Birth
The Best-Kept Secret

A documentary that examines the intimate nature of birth and the powerful role it plays in women’s lives when they are permitted to experience it fully

“It is possible to have an ecstatic birth-in fact, that is the best natural high that I know of. And these states of consciousness are best reached when a woman is fully aware and fully awake. Women don’t have a way to know their body works until they really try it out in birth. I think that women can be completely surprised by the change in them from giving birth-you have something powerful in you-that fierce thing comes up-and I think babies need moms to have that fierceness-you feel like you can do anything.”

Wow this thread got away from me. I meant to post a long time ago and wow, now look at all the posts!

I've met several of you in some way or another, but since I have yet to make it to a coffee night I am sure I've missed out on some good times I still plan on making one someday soon, especially now that dh works days and is home to watch the girls. And dd2 is getting old enough to tolerate mommy leaving for an MNO

Newly married to best friend Brian : tied the knot on Earth Day '08. : Been a couple since '04. We own a home and raise the girls over east in Mount Clemens. I'm a SAHM who often crafts things for random cash here and there (mostly for fun and as favors) and my siggy pretty much says the rest.

Hope to see/meet some more of you soon

Hello. My name is Meghan. I have been married to my wonderful DH, Scott, for 4 years. We just had our first, Audrey; she is 5 months old. I haven't made it to a coffee night yet, but am planning on it. I can't this week because I will be in Denver.

I would like to meet other mothers with little ones in the Royal Oak/Troy area. Many of my close friends live far enough away that it is hard to get together. I have a great network of neighbors, but they don't share the same views that I do. They couldn't understand why I wan't a natural birth or why I'm not feeding cereal yet.

I look forward to being able to make it to the next coffee night.

Meghan, Married to Scott, Mother to Audrey- 2, and Expecting Nov 10th

Hi! I'm Suzy, and I have a two-month old little girl named Amelia. I live in Royal Oak with my husband and two long-haired kitties. I work part-time as a reference librarian(just returned to work last week - it's getting easier to leave her, but I don't know if I'll ever stop feeling torn about it), and I've been learning to play banjo for the past year or so (though I've gotten barely any practice time in since the advent of the wee one). Otherwise, I like to knit, I dabble in sewing when I have the time, and I love travel when we can spare the funds. DP and I went to Burning Man for the first time last year, and are trying to figure out how to bring Amelia next year.

Lets see, on the MDC checklist, we cloth diaper, ebf so far (pumped milk when i'm at work), had a drug-free birth, and try to babywear though it's not always successful.

Two kids one teen and one tween, I don't use their names online.

Have lived in the Detroit area all my life.

I first started reading Mothering in 1993 when I was given a reprint of a Mothering article after my daughter was stillborn. It was by Marion Cohen called This is what I do for Karin. It spoke directly to me and I've been a Mothering addict since.

Dh and I have been married since 02 but we've been together since 92. We have one son who is now 3 . He was born at the Providence ABC. We also have 2 big hairy doggies and some fish.
