Hi! I'm Katie, 21, single mommy to Emily, 4.5 months. I've been a member of JM since I became pregnant in Jan 08 and I'm completely addicted to this site! In the past few weeks I've been trying to become more social so I've joined the Infant, Baby Signing and the Midwest boards. I'm still trying to get use to looking at more than just my PR so I'll make sure to stop by as much as possible.

So pretty much I wanted to join your group here because even though I love my PR for the most part most of the moms in there believe in attachment parenting and although I understand and respect their choice some of them are kinda pushy and it's been really getting to me lately. So that's why I decided to come here and hang out with some moms that don't think I'm awful Not that any of the people in my PR have said that to me I just feel like if I say anything about my parenting style with Emily some comment will be made or a post after mine will be a very strongly opinionated one with lots of "research" stating how certain things are just awful and bad for children. Some things are taking WAY to extreme. KWIM? I've even thought about leaving my PR board but then I get lonely and end up doing back I'm happy to find a board that shares some of my beliefs!

Good grief I didn't mean to turn my intro into a vent, so sorry. I hope none of you think badly of me so quickly! I guess this issue dealing with some of the moms in my PR has been bugging me more than I thought.

Here's some pictures of my Emily!


Eating bananas


Her and her attack dog




Yet another picture of her and her dog (use to be my dog )


Goodness what I'm entrance I'm trying to make for myself, accidentally posted this in the parenting advice forum. Oops

Welcome Katie! We're glad to have you here, and feel free to vent away! Don't worry about anyone thinking badly of you, I think we all read your post nodding our heads, we know exactly how that feels and that's why we have this board!

Emily is gorgeous! What a little cutie pie!
