yup. i am also new to the blog thing. I have just registered but I have been reading stuff on the hipmama webpage for a while. I have a 6 month old and am trying to find peace within myself about staying home. Mostly I just need to find a community that I feel comfortable with. In one of Ariel's books there is a quote "if it takes a villiage to raise a child where's my village?" I am in that boat these days. I keep trying to meet people-(i feel like i am dating again).
Everyone jonesing for your fixes? We appear to have mamaphonic & girlmom back up & running! I. Am. SO. Excited!!!
So, I found hipmama a bit to late, so I went over to Girlmom, where I currently am an active member of the community.
I'm Kat (as may be evident from my screen name!) I'm a 22 year old mama, with a daughter, Zoe, who's 16 months old.
I live in Chicago, temporarly, but am from Minnesota. I live with my two gay roommates, who are engaged, and their two cats.
I helped to found RAMBL, and have a 'zine called "The Bean and I", which comes out sometimes when I have time to finish it.
Well, I think that's it!
I can't wait to get to know all of you!
I never thought I'd be back here again.
Of course, this discovery has been made on a day where I really need to get off the computer and get my shit together.
I'll be checking in frequently.
I'm so excited hipMama is back! I can't wait to have to time to browse around the site and see what's new!
Hello. We're having a slow sickie morning here. Thought I would pop on to say hi as I wait for my turn in the shower. Well that's it for me, autistic boy on the loose, I must follow. Wonderful site all!
I am so glad to have hipmama back in action. I found hipmama waaaaaaaaaaaayback in the day when you still had message boards, right before the clash.
Then I found girlmom. Now Im back at hipmama. *yay*
Bee, the sight looks oh so wonderful. You did a great job, as did anyone that helped. Im so glad I have community back!
Testing my sig line - thats all
---well I thought I was - it doesnt seem to come up at all. Oh well -No Biggy.
We're all playing hooky this morning. No school - Im putting work off till at least noon. We we're thinking about going out to breakfast, but that would require leaving the house, which isnt a possibilty.
wow, after how many days? 5-6, i'm in girlmom/mamaphonic withdrawl. big time!!
sooo glad this is up and running. i love you bee. great job. it looks awesome.
when is the next hipmama out? the "fall" issue?
it;s 3 am, i can't sleep, and now this is way too exciting!!!
The sugar bowl
Waking up to the kicks of a new life, no job, no school but also no money, I feel a bit stranded sometimes more than free.
But on a clear cold day in Holland after a lazy breakfast in my Auntâ€™s kitchen I set off on my own small mission.
We need a sugar bowl.
As I waddle down to the Centrum with a long stride that seems to cradle the baby into a calm sleep, I am completely aware of my utter â€œridiculousity,â€? as my evil twin would put it. But I decide to make it an adventure, an absurdly banal quest, instead of a testament to the barrenness of my life as a pregnant Auslander.
