1. Name and where you are from? Jill - Lee's Summit, MO. Lived in the KC Metro area my ENTIRE life...how boring, eh? 2. Work status? FT working momma - 40+ hours per week. I hate it, but gotta do it. 3. How many DC and ages? One LO - 12 months. SS - 11 years old full-time custody. Ugh. 4. Any more DC planned? Nope. DH is done so I am done as well I suppose 5. Relationship status? Rocky but still married at this moment. We will see what next week brings. 6. Did you ever imagine your life the way it is today? Nope. I had a whole other plan 10 years ago but life threw curves and I have been on the rollercoaster since. Best thing that ever came out of my rollercoaster was my baby girl and for that I am thankful for it but it is certainly not where I thought my life would be. Oh well...that's life. :smile:

1. Name and where you are from? Andrea, Montreal QC Canada 2. Work status? Full time Paralegal, Full time mom 3. How many DC and ages? Donovan- 13.5 months old! 4. Any more DC planned? Maybe? I honestly go back and forth on this question... I love the dynamic that we have, but sometimes think that I'm being selfish, cause mommy guilt tells me that Donnie deserves a sibling, and DH has made it abundantly clear he wants another DC. 5. Relationship status? Legally married, for a year and a half, (BUT we considered married by common-law for 5 prior,) Together for a total of 6 years beautiful years...our "real" anniversary was this past Sunday! 6. Did you ever imagine your life the way it is today? Nope. Not sure what I expected my life to turn out like, but EVERYTHING changed October 4th 2003. :sheepish:

1. Name and where you are from? Sarah. From upstate NY originally, now living in NC. 2. Work status? Full-time financial analyst, but I hate it. Would love to work PT, and spend more time with my DD. 3. How many DC and ages? 1 DD, almost 16 months 4. Any more DC planned? 2 buns in the oven! :sheepish: 5. Relationship status? Married 4 years.

1. Name and where you are from? b Julia, from Colorado! 2. Work status? b SAHM, but that may need to change soon... :frown: :crying: 3. How many DC and ages? b Wyatt, 17 months (he'll be 18 months in just 9 days!!!) 4. Any more DC planned? b Yes, at least one more, but we're not sure about timing... At this point it comes down to us not being able to afford it, and not having enough space, if we did have another baby in this house, they'd be sharing a room. 5. Relationship status? b Very happily married 6. Did you ever imagine your life the way it is today? b I always dreamed of living in Colorado, but if you had told me when I was a kid that I'd be living where I live now, married and with a wonderful baby, holy cow I would have died of excitement!
