About Me

I am a stay at home mom of three, but I'm not your typical SAHM...I swear a lot, usually dress in black, and have an "odd" sense of humor. But I'm one of the nicest and open minded people you'll ever meet. I'm also extremely sarcastic. I wear my heart on my sleeve (I didn't use to...something about having babies). I will also do whatever is in my power to help someone. I'm into cloth diapering, co-sleeping, natural parenting, genital integrity, blogs, giveaways, zombies, geekery, investigating and learning new things...and naturally, spending time with my family. I may post some things that make you angry, I don't expect you to agree with me on certain subject, and I'm not about to get into a virtual penis measuring contest with you. A debate is one thing, but the moment you start getting childish is the moment it ends... Favorites: Music: punk, industrial, dubstep, screamo. And then a random sprinkling of other genres. I don't listen to the radio unless it's talk radio. Favorite artists include (but not limited to) Cyberoptix, NOFX, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, The Spits, The Phantom Limbs TV: Don't watch tv either. Not even local. If the tv's on it's on Netflix or a DVD. But I do enjoy Heroes, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Lost, Living with the Tribes, Taboo, Invader Zim, Chowder. Movies: Moon, Operation: Endgame, Defendor, Re-Cycle, City of God, Invisible Children, Food, Inc. I also love documentaries and silent film
I met Dan when I was 14 and he was 21. We actually started dating on September, Friday the 13th, about a month after I turned 18. Six months later he asked me to marry him (I knew it was coming because he sized the ring his grandfather gave to his grandmother after he got back from the war. Real discrete, dude...). And two months after that we were married on April 24th 2003. No one thought we'd make it, but here we are 7 years later. It's been really rough at times, but we've made it through and are stronger because of it. We're not your typical couple. We don't wear our rings (but we still have them), have to have separate blankets, and can make fun of each other and not get mad. He's my best friend. We're around each other almost all the time - we even worked together several times. And you'd think I'd be sick of him, but I'm not...
I found out I was pregnant with Dia about 2 months after we got married, after our second wedding (which was in June). I think we started planning her very shortly after we were engaged. She was born on February 15, 2004. I feel I made a lot of mistakes in raising her and live with many regrets. But I've learned from it...She may potentially be autistic.  Her cousin was diagnosed with Asperger's and when you describe him you describe Dia. She loves video games, music, art, and playing outside.
Dillinger was born on September 26, 2007. I often call him Dilli. He's very much a mama's boy and such a sweetie. He loves playing, naturally, and frequently plays with "girly" things. I have no problem with this, but it bothers others :rolls eyes:. Like his sister, he loves music & making people smile. I love the converstations we have. They're not profound or anything, just cute and they bring a smile to my face. He is how I began my adventures in attachment parenting.
Kyrielle (Kyri) was born on July 15th, 2010 at 35 weeks 6 days. They expected her to weigh about 8 1/2 lbs at birth. She was 7 lbs 1 oz and 18 1/4" long. And by the time we left the hospital she weighed 6 lbs 9 oz. Tiny, tiny thing. None of her clothes or diapers fit. She loves being held and sleeping with me at night. And we're still having a rough time breast feeding. She's the only one of my kids who's ever cried because she wanted changed. She spends her time tormenting her older siblings, babbling your ears off, and giving kisses.

Little Fish #4 is also on its way. Due Feb 19th. Holy shit, I just may go insane... This one was a surprise. After my fertility issues, especially with my current youngest, I didn't think it could happen so easily. Surprise indeed.

How have I not gone completely crazy, yet?
