Hi ladies I'm new to the forums here and just wanted to introduce myself and see if there are any other moms near Schofield Barracks, HI.
My name is Anna, I'm 23 and I have a 16 m/o daughter, my husband is (obviously
) in the Army and we're originally from NC. Um, I don't really know what to say about myself, I'm not really great at meeting new people, I think in part because I'm pretty opinionated and outspoken as well as a bit of a social wallflower. I'm pretty geeky, not really into fashion or television or even cooking (but I'm looking into improving that!) so sometimes its easier for me to hang out with the guys, but I'm also pretty on board the advocacy/crunchy mom train and thats not really something a lot of guys are into haha. Anyway, I'm hoping to meet more moms like me, or at least moms with more things in common and figured this wasn't a bad place to start. (I hate to seem like I'm stereotyping but I'm having a hard time fitting in with a lot of military moms I've met, maybe its because most of them are fairly traditional or maybe I'm just not looking in the right places, most of my military mommy friends are on LJ :/)
Oh, I guess I should add that I'm a clothdiapering, gentle discipline, breastfeeding, babywearing, occasionally co-sleeping (daughter is working on sleeping on her own, we were strictly co-sleeping for a long time) and attachment parenting mom, though seeing as where I'm posting this I think a lot of that might have been a given (But then I don't really know either, I'm new here!
Anyway hoping to get involved on the forums here!
