I just commented on a bunch of entries and realized I haven't yet posted my profile, so you may be wondering who the heck I am.
Let's see, like Whirlwind, I have the trio of kids. They are Belly (6), Jilly (4) and D (2)---if you couldn't guess, these are their code names---the kids are girl, girl, boy; no we weren't 'trying' to 'get' a boy (we were asked this so many times!) but knew we wanted three kids and that was it. I started to breed around the age of 33 and wanted to be done before 40 (now just a few months away!); plus my body had been through enough and was starting to threaten to throw my internal organs to the floor if I put another kid in my belly.
We live in Southeastern Massachusetts---kind of midway between Boston, Providence and the Cape. I worked for 11 years in Media/Advertising in both Providence and Boston. I quit my job after Jilly was born and have not made a penny since. (and, since this is a New England blog, I'll say that I was born in Providence and, later, spent most of my life in Western MA--Springfield area---anyone remember "Riverside Park"? Oh yeah, I worked there---Old Tyme Photo! Woohoo!).
We are homeschooling---Belly went to preschool but I decided to keep her home for kindergarten and will keep on plugging away for first grade next year. I love the lifestyle homeschooling provides, even if there are times I think I've lost my mind.
I've only been blogging since October but love it (I'm at http://fairlyoddmother.blogspot.com/). It's been a great way to keep friends and family up to date on our lives (although my blog is not always G-rated); plus I really like the other bloggers I've (virtually) met through it.
OK, it is past 10pm and my internal alarm is ringing to tell me to get my butt to bed. Looking forward to 'seeing' you all on this blog!
