Ya can’t tell the players without a Scorecard….(under construction)
One Lucky Mommy (OLM): ME – I’m new to blogging – I keep writing these treatises in my head and decided I should start trying to write them down. I have planned all my life to be a mom – at some point and that point has arrived. As I am older, and have been waiting/working towards mommy for a while – this is *THE* project I am working on for the next….bunch of years. For now, this blog is focused on mom and family stuff.
Stats: over 40, first time working mom, polyamorist, avid Fantasy and Sci fi fiction reader, medieval re-creationist (SCA), textile artisan (spinning, weaving, etc.), Scandinavian (Norway), Yankee (technically Damn Yankee), baker, green, tecnologist, educator, lacto-ovo-pesco vegetarian, card & board gamer, cat lover.
World’s Smartest Toddler (WST): At 19 months (May 2009) WCB officially became a Toddler on this blog (was a Toddler for us at about 15 months – as walking, talking, and self-amusement levels were toddler range). At 2.5 yrs (April 2010) Healthy, cheerful, still clingy, although separation anxiety is waning (thank goodness). STILL some challenges in her sleeping habits (still waking once or twice a ’10-hour sleep’ night roughly 60% of the time – blissfully managing to sleep 10 hours solid roughly 30 % of the time; horrible awful up-every-2-hours 10% or less now-adays). Everything else – all likes and dislikes, etc. – subject to change without notice. No pictures will be posted due to anonymity desires of OLM. (sorry)
World’s Cutest Baby (WCB): Born October 2007, girl, healthy. Was a challenge in her eating and sleeping habits (or lack thereof) but generally cheerful and *wiggly.* Became WST at 19 months.
Daddy-O: husband, dad, looked forward to being dad for a long time, has worked hard over the years to support OLM emotionally – very much a romantic and a kid at heart, helps to make OLM and WCB laugh, animates stuffed animals and feeds OLM’s children’s book habit.

Daddy-N: husband, dad, apprehensive about being a dad, pleasantly surprised to be a good one, caring and even *fun*.

Auntie: over 40, wife to Uncle L, quiet secondary relationship with OLM for about 5 years, OLM’s birthing support person (in the OR even!), elated to have a strong caring relationship with WCB, strongly opinionated yet generally taciturn, wry, and soft hearted.
