I'm not a mother-to-be (and to be honest, we're not even in the "trying" stage yet), but we're probably going to start trying about a year from now. I'm here to learn all I can before I even go down the parenting road!<br><br>
I'm an educator in a small community in Alaska. I work with children ages 5-12. Anything else I should share? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Of course! Welcome! You'll learn so much stuff here that you'll be well prepared when it comes baby time. I wish I had found MDC a year before having DS. I found it just a few weeks before he was born. This is a great place. I hope you like it here.

I also wish I'd found MDC before my babies were born. I learned as I went and didn't find it until I decided to start cloth diapering my second son. I've slowly evolved from a mainstream mama to a crunchy mama. I wish I'd been crunchy from the start. Had I found this forum I would have made some different decisions.

Many of us arrived here before TTC, sometimes years before. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Welcome.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="welcome">

Thanks. I've been lurking for a little while, and I'm already feeling a lot more knowledgeable than before!

I know I'm in the right spot... but sometimes I'm lost! What does AP mean? I think I get "crunchy" but some of the others are a mystery! Is there a directory somewhere? What is DD and DS? HELP!
