How did you chose the name for your daughter? Actually, Kleines is my son! His real name is Andrew though.<br><br>
Are you an outgoing person or need plenty time to warm up to someone? I am a little bit of both! I guess it depends on the day, my mood, and the situation! It takes me awhile to make really close friends, but aquaintances are pretty easy!<br><br>
What do you like doing besides making babies and hanging out on MDC? Besides babymaking and MDC I enjoy; knitting, reading, traveling, hiking, hanging out on my parents farm, scuba diving, hanging with my family, and attempting to garden out on my patio!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

How old are you- I am 27 (28 in February)<br><br>
How did you meet dh? We worked at the same local community college.<br><br>
What do you do for a living? I am a stay at home mom. The pay sucks, but there are tons of benefits!<br><br>
If you could choose any profession in the world what would you choose? Would it be the one you have now? If SAHM is considered a profession, I would do this. I love it. If not then my dream jobs are; plant biology, conservation, teach scuba, or forestry.<br><br>
What were your first impression of your DH when you met him? I thought he had a cute butt! He was actually underneath my desk the first time I saw him, so I just saw his butt! He is a computer network nerd and was running a cable or something!<br><br>
How did he/you propose? We were in the car and he told me he loved me and asked me! Not all that exciting, but it was just what I wanted! I am pretty low key about those things!<br><br>
Will you please tell us a story of your most embarrassing moment? Oh, which one! The one that comes to mind right now is last night. My 5 1/2 year old niece is obsessed with pregnant bellies. She pulls up shirts and peaks. I have made it clear that I am not comfortable with her doing this to me, so what does she do? Pulls my shirt down from the TOP right in front of all the in laws. Yikes.<br><br>
Philosophy or saying that you live by? I just try be respectful (to people, animals, the planet). Otherwise nothing is coming to mind right now!<br><br>
Do you hope to have more children? Yes, but I am not so sure I want to be pregnant again.<br><br>
How did you discover MDC? Some ladies in my local attachment parenting group introduced me to MDC. I had been on a more mainstream board and feeling very much the outcast!<br><br>
What kind of farm do your parents have? It is mostly acres in the conservation program, meaning they don't do much to them. They do have 5 cows, some chickens, and a couple ponds though. They have a garden, but don't really do any big planting or anything. A farmer rents some land from them and does winter wheat, and some other grass type things. Their farm is mostly used for us to hike in the woods, swim in the pond, and just enjoy nature!<br><br>
Do people ever sing "Come Home to Bonnie Jean" to you? I have only had that happen one or two times. I DO hear "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean" very often. People also ask me where Clyde is a lot.<br><br>
Dream vacation? Right now it would be someplace like Alaska, or Canada (Western). I would love to be laying in a hammok with a mountain view or something like that.

Do you have any pets? Two cats- Mason Lee (Siamese 5 years old and crazy) and Lucky Diane (black short hair 7 years old and super sweet).<br><br>
What is the worst part of having a two year old? Right now it is that I don't have much patience! Mealtime isn't exactly wonderful around here either!!<br><br>
The best??? We like to dance and sing together. I love it when he says "I love you mama," or "I'll take care of you mama." His laugh, hugs, and kisses are also awesome!<br><br>
Are there any activities that you and DS have that are just the two of us type things? We have a couple silly songs that we sing. We go to Music Together every Friday (just us). It is just us most of the time, so pretty much everything!!<br><br>
How long have you been married? 3 years<br><br>
What types of foods do you like? desserts! I pretty much do any food. I don't eat fish a lot though.<br><br>
Has that (see above) changed since you have been pregnant? I get on kicks with certain foods lately. Right now, I could eat Mexican for every meal!!<br><br>
What is your favorite activity to do with your son? We break out our musical insturments and jam out! I also love reading books with him.<br><br>
What is your favorite MDC forum? Probably this DDC and I like reading in the diapering forum too.<br><br>
What is your favorite holiday and why? Probably Memorial Day. I get to see my whole family that weekend, and I love that. We eat like gluttons, hike, and sit around the campfire at night!<br><br>
What is one "convience gadget" that you couldn't live without but wish you could (ex. cell phone, microwave, car, etc.)? Does the computer count? I have found that I am addicted to the internet. If I can't get online to read my blogs, check email, and other various things I feel lost! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Do you have a favorite musican or band? Right now I am really into Simon and Garfunkel.<br><br>
Best movie you've seen in the last year? Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix (it is the only one I have seen in the theater this year)!<br><br>
Shaved ice or ice cream? Shaved Ice for sure, grape or cherry!<br><br>
Why don't you want to be pregnant again? Pretty much because this pregnancy has been really hard for me (physically and emotionally). I have felt like a bad mom to DS. We normally do a ton of fun outdoors things together during the week, and lately we are lucky to just get out to a park!<br><br>
What is your favorite diaper? I started CDing DS at 2 and I all I have really used on him so far are BG 2.0. I can't say I love those though, they are functional.. just not really cute! Just from what I have for this baby so far and what I have seen IRL, I am digging some of the cute pocket and fitteds out there. If I had a MUCH bigger diaper budget I would go crazy on HyenaCart!!<br><br>
What is your son's favorite web site? YouTube probably! He and I look up funny animal videos, dance videos, and other things. He is really into busting a move to "The Hamster Dance," right now! woo hoo!

I do need to show him the Muppets mananamanah. I have seen it on there before. He will love that!<br><br>
A few favorite blogs are; CrazyAuntPurl, Babyslime, Babycatcher33, Doctormama, Snickollet, PostSecret, The Shape of a Mother, my mom's blog. Those were just the first few that came to my head, I have a ton that I enjoy!

How do your pets handle your ds? Did you have them already when ds was first born? We've been wondering whether it's necessary to get rid of our cat. Our dog is pretty much a wuss and won't be a problem but our cat is fiesty and often bites and swipes her claws when she's irritated. I've been thinking of posting a thread about this but since you've got furbabies I thought I'd ask you.

How do your pets handle your ds?<br>
We had them before DS and it hasn't been much of a problem. He terrorizes them (tries to love on them and it makes them crazy). Mostly they hiss and run away. My cats were rescued, and their claws were gone when we got them so that isn't a problem. They both WILL bite though, but they haven't bitten him. I think they just know the pecking order! We also give them lots of attention, and they have places to hide where DS can't get them! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We did talk a lot about babies and things to them before he was born.<br><br>
Do you have a blog? Yes, I do have one. It is really for family and friends though. I am getting ready (you know when I find that elusive creature SPARE TIME) to start one that is less personal. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
