New boards and new member!
Since today there is so much that is new here, I thought what a perfect time to introduce myself.
I have been lurking and learning for some time and have enjoyed both the BB boards and the book.
My husband and I are expecting our first baby October 28th and are really starting to get geared up for his/her arrival. One of my dear friends is due one week after me so we’ve had a lot of fun baby-prepping together, and BB has become an indispensable resource for us both.
In the meantime, I am a graduate student studying political science in Santa Barbara and am "working" on my dissertation. I have found baby—and you all--to be a big, albeit welcomed, distraction from my writing! Political science probably sounds boring, and honestly some of it is. However, I study political socialization of younger people (kids) and environmental politics, which I think are quite fun. Ironically, we have just started to consider cloth diapering and, as a result, I have been spending a lot of my time in that forum.
Hopefully I’ll be able to provide some of my own ideas and offer what I can to the dilemmas you all encounter.
Looking forward to seeing you around the board!
Juliet, mama to DS 10/03 & DS 11/06
