I thought with as many new faces as we had at coffee tonight - we should do an intro thread (stole this idea from the toledo moms)

Ill start:

Im Michelle, mamma to 2 girls, Violet 4/14/06 and Ophelia 5/28/08/. I work full time as a middle school teacher (special ed) and go to Wayne State and am finishing my masters.

I have a great geeky husband who works as a full time IT guy.

We live downriver in a little house with 2 pugs, a cat, and some fish

Im not super crunchy but I am for sure not soggy. :

Im always looking for new friends.. once we had kids - life changed and its hard finding folks that "get it" and dont think Im weird because our kids are our true hearts.

Former Special Ed Teacher  now SAHM mamma to 2 girls autismribbon.gif(4/06) and thumbsuck.gif (5/08) EBF via donor milk. Wife DH : Fur mamma to 2 pugs and 1 grey kitty - its a zoo around here!  pos.gif Feb 2013..Will you help feed our new blessing?winner.jpg

Hi, I'm Jen. (I had the three kids at coffee night) I've been married to Clay for going on 8 years now. I'm an apprenticing homebirth midwife. He sells GM cars and doesn't want to know the first thing about birth or any other *gross* stuff like that...lol He takes to crunchiness like a vampire to garlic but we manage to get along.

We live in Oakland County with our Jack Russel (Jackie), two Chihuahuas (Paco and Pita), a bunch of lizzards, fish and toads....anything the kids pick up from the grass really.

I work full time in Madison Heights and also homeschool the kids. They have their own office/school room next to mine. I'm always out and about and ready for a morning playdate or an afternoon lunch date.




Jen Burnett, DEM
Homeschooling mom to my 3 kids (10, 9 and 8)

I'm Heather. I have a 2 and a half year old Caden. I've been married to Jason for 6 years now. I work (mostly) at home as a resident director (dorm mom). I seriously LOVE my job. I'm pregnant with #2 and am due around Thanksgiving (day depends on who you ask). I'm 27. My crunchiness is an evolution in progress.

Rebecca, I'm in Rochester too. If you ever want to get together at the Municipal Park for a play date, let me know. I'm going to be absurdly busy the next couple weeks, but I might be able to squeeze in something if you're interested. And where do you get your raw milk from?

Okay, I'll play!

I am Courtenay. I am 32 (gosh, really? I don't feel 32! I feel more like 19 or 20...). I am married to David, the other half of my heart. I am a wife, a mom, a doula, a childbirth educator, and am learning to be a midwife. Dave works in the auto industry. Poor guy. I mean, at least he has a job, but it sure is stressful these days!

In my spare time (spare time? What's THAT?), I love to garden, practice yoga, sew, read, swim, bike...

We have two beautiful, smart, sassy kids. Our daughter is 6.5 and our son is going to be five in September. We homeschool, and are gearing up for our first uber serious year with dd...

We have two cats and a beta fish, and though we aren't HUGE dog fans, I am seriously considering finding a mature, sweet, extremely well trained large dog to bring into our family, so that when dh is gone on long business trips I can feel more secure! Dh would cry if he knew how completely serious I was about that!

We live out in Clarkston, by the way. Chickety China, welcome to the area! Check out the Rochester LLL group. They have a great active group of mamas with kids your youngest's age, I think, in spades!

Mama to two awesome kids. Wife to a wonderful, attached, loving husband. I love my job-- I'm a Midwife, Doula and Childbirth Educator, Classes forming now!

Well, I didn't make the coffee night, but I'll play anyway since I make it to maybe half of them .

I'm Shana (pronounced Shauna, thank you mom and dad ). I have two daughters: Maddie (7/30/05 - she turned three this week!) and Sophie (5/1/08). I'm a mechanical engineer turned SAHM. I am also an aspiring photographer and may start my own photography business (specializing in maternity, babies, children) when I am not so busy with a new baby (you can see some of my pictures here, although the first few are of me and not by me ). I also entertain the idea of homeschooling / unschooling, although I'm not sure I have the constitution for being around my kids 24/7 for the next 18 years. I've been married to Rich (also an engineer) for 10 years (!) and will turn 37 in December. I live in western-ish Oakland County. Oh, and I have 3 kitties, 2 of whom just turned a year old (brothers) and are absolutely always into everything! I am constantly digging my toddler's toys out of their water dish.

If I had spare time, I would read, do yoga, mountain bike, write, and spend more time taking pictures and learning more about Photoshop.

ETA: Sophie was a homebirth with Stacia, except I didn't call her in time to make it (I love to tease her, but I accept full responsibility ), thus the unplanned UC (link to story in siggy).

Mama to M (7/05) and S (5/08) my surprise !!!

I'm Fay, 36 year old SAHM to 2 boys ages 7 & 1. DS1 is autistic, and DS2 has feeding issues related to acid reflux. I never make it to coffee night, because evenings are impossible for me...even though we're near the Northville Barnes & Noble where the MDC mamas sometimes get together! I've been married to my engineer DH since 1993. I'm not the crunchiest or greenest mama you'll meet, but I am a hopeless raw milk junkie, a die-hard babywearer, I love breastfeeding & co-sleeping, and nurturing attachment though play therapy is the cornerstone of our family life.

I'm interested in starting a lunchtime support group for mamas of kids with special needs. I love finding out about therapies that others are pursuing and sharing contact info for the best therapists, school districts, summer camps, medical specialists, whatever our kids need. I'm always happy to share info that has helped DS1, we've worked with some outstanding professionals and DS1 has come a long way!

I'm also interested in starting up an informal Mommy & Me type playgroup this fall, maybe on a weekday morning, for my very social & active toddler. I'm thinking we could read a story as a group, sing a few songs, do a very simple art project and socialize once a week.

I'm a writer mama, too, I love to write short essays and poems about my experiences as a mother. I'm looking for a faithful correspondent who would be interested in exchanging journals for a few months...the journal swaps on MDC have NOT been successful.

PM me if you want to work with me on any of these projects! :

I only make it to coffee nights once in a while, but I'll give my brief life story anyway : )

I'm Christa, hubby's name is Mike, and we have 3 kids. We have 2 dd's, 8 and 2 years old, and a ds, 5 years old. The 2 oldest are going to be in school in the fall and while I'll miss them dearly, I'm also looking forward to some alone time with my little one.

I'm a birth doula and I have been a midwife apprentice for a little over 2 years. I've got the coolest preceptor I know. I thought my apprenticeship was going to be on the 10 year plan, but it looks like it might be closer to 7 I'm also partners with my BFF in a doula and midwifery practice. I feel like I've got the best of both worlds, and love the midwives I work with.

In my spare time I like to sleep, hang with friends, play with the kids, and dream about having date nights with dh. On the rare chance I'm off call, I love to go out of town.

Christa

I'm Jennifer, 34, wife to Nate and mama to two crazy little boys, 3 years old and 1 year old. We live in Dearborn.

The only MDC coffee night I've ever been able to make it to was one that we had for the downriver mamas last summer. It's a very rare occasion to see me out at night without my boys, but it could happen...

I'm a vegetarian who just went vegan last winter. I am trying to start up a vegetarian mamas group, if anyone is interested: http://vegmomsofmi.org/forum

We would love some daytime playdates on this side of town!

Hello - I haven't been to anything yet, as we are still in the Toledo area, but next month (or this month) we'll be moving to Hamtramck, MI near Detroit. I am married to my wonderful husband, Chris (almost 4 years) and we have 2 children. Samuel is 2 & Addison is 6 1/2 months. We do what we can - babywear, breastfeed, some organic, started recycling, cloth diaper, heading toward plastic-free, etc. Hope to meet some of you guys in the near future!

Hi!! I am Angela. I am 32 years old. I have 3 children, Caleb is 5, Adela is 3, and Autumn Rose is nearly 5 months. I am divorced from Caleb's and Adela's dad. Autumn's dad is my boyfriend Mike...and he is now really dad to all three of my children. He will be adopting my first two once we are married for over a year. He is such a great guy!!

I was a teacher for 9 years, and am now trying to become a nurse.

I am getting crunchier and crunchier every day...but was completely uncrunchy as recently as 5 months ago. How quickly things change. I now babywear, use cloth diapers, trying to AP (I am a work in progress), and much more to come.

I live in Troy, and am also available for playdates most anytime.

I did not make it to the last coffee night but hope to sometime in the future!!

Angela

Hi! I'm Elizabeth, and I've been married to Jeff for just over a year. We're both 24. I'm an insurance underwriter and he's an electrical engineer. We just found out that we're expecting our first. We also have three dogs.

We plan to have a homebirth (with Stacia), cloth diaper, cosleep, breastfeed, etc., which is why I made my way to this website.

We live in AA, so we're looking to meet people in this area.

I'm Shelley. I'm married to Erik and he is a carpenter. We have one daughter who is 2 1/2 and are expecting a new baby around Thanksgiving. I'm having a homebirth.

I am currently a part time student working towards applying to nursing school for the fall of 2010 and then hopefully straight on to my masters in nurse midwifery. I also work very part time at a veterinary hospital because I love animals.


Oh and Courtenay, I think you should look into getting a rescued greyhound. I have a greyhound and a cat and my cat is much much more work than my very laid back dog.

hey! i finally made it out to a coffee night after months and months of not being able to. i'm chelsea, i'm 23 and recently single after living pretty much as roommates with dd's dad...who is a great dad, we just didnt make eachother happy. my daughter is grace, she just turned one. grace was born at home (also with stacia!), but you can see my sig for those details. im currently staying at my mother's house in dearborn and i will be moving to canton the end of august. i used to nanny for michelle renee. i work full time now at whole foods in ann arbor as a cashier, and hope to transfer to the new store and get into something different. eventually, i'd like to go to school for nursing. i enjoy art and photography and i am constantly uploading pictures to flickr, though most of them are just of funny faces or other random things. i have an etsy shop where i sell vintage clothing and handmade things, please check it out - nashifeet.etsy.com.

i feel like i never have time for anything, and i would love to get together with everyone more often (am i dreaming?). i think we should plan a livonia coffee night again soon, and/or possibly an ann arbor one. monday nights are always good for me because it is the only time i KNOW im off work.

heather - YES the new rochester whole foods will have coconut milk yogurt!!

Greyhounds aren't mute but they just don't bark much. My dog is not a good guard dog in that he'd never do anything to an intruder. But I don't think that most dogs will unless you spend LOTS of time doing specific training for that. My dog is a guard dog in that he is a big dog that barks at strangers at the door. But he doesn't bark at every passerbye or noise he hears. That's a good thing in my book. When he does bark, it's actually pretty intimidating. The rescue required us to read Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies and it had lots of good info.

Feel free to pm me if you want the info for the rescue group we went through. They were awesome.

OK back on topic, I just had to do my greyhound plug!

Hey Shelley, congratulations on your new little bean!

I'm Stacia, married to my fantastic but shy architect husband, living in an extreme fixer-upper in Ann Arbor. I have two boys, 4 and 8. I haven't been to coffee night in ages because I've been working two nights a week and seem not to want to get my butt off the couch when I'm not working! I am lucky enough to be a midwife and doula and get to attend lots of great births!

I love to garden and make the most of my shady city lot. I also love to be outdoors and go camping and backpacking, though being on call makes that hard. My boys and I slept in the yard in our tent the last two nights! I'm trying to find campgrounds within an hour of Ann Arbor that have good cell phone reception too

I run a 'zine about childbirth and parenting in my free time and also like to hang out with my friends when I can.

Nice to see everybody! Even the people who haven't had a baby with me

Stacia -- intrepid mama, midwife, and doula. Changing the world one 'zine at a time.

Hi to another equestrian! I have a 6 year old bay TWH and hubby has (we're hoping he's sold) a 13 year old tobiano TWH. We used to do quite a bit of trailriding and camping and some showing, but no time now, and that's why the gelding is for sale. I might sell my mare, but GAH the market is terrible. Hubby's horse is in Fenton, and mine is here in Davison.

I'll actually be out there on Wednesday afternoon/evening! I'm coming with a friend from work (the one I was trying to call about the yogurt!) because he's been helping there and is really excited about the opening. Maybe we'll see you!

Hi everyone, I'm another Chelsea (duh - could you tell by my super original screen name?)

Married almost 4 years to my awesome DH who has slowly but graciously embraced the AP lifestyle - both our kids were born peacefully at home (Rosie just turned 3 and Sammy is almost 13 months), we practice extended bf, drink raw milk and strive to eat mostly local/organic foods (lots from our own garden), we don't vaccinate, we are slowly phasing out plastic toys, we love co-sleeping, babywearing, cloth diapering and I am proud to say our boy is intact (that was a tough one to convince DH about).

I teach yoga and like to be crafty in my (little) spare time and I also have an etsy store (seagreendesigns.etsy.com) and a lame blog (link in sig) that I use mainly to post photos of the kids for my extended relatives.

I love coffee nights and playdates - It is nice to hang out with like minded mamas who don't look at you like you have 2 heads when you whip out your boob in the middle of a conversation to feed a hungry toddler.

It was great to see so many people at our last HUGE coffee night...
when's the next one???
