We've done this a few times in other DDC's and it's super-fun and a great way to get to know each other! Post a fun fact about yourself, and keep posting - you can post multiple and make multiple replies!


Fun fact for me: I have a nanny that comes to my home to care for my children while my husband and I are at work.... and he's a DUDE. We get a lot of strange looks when we tell people we have a male nanny, but out of all the nannies we interviewed he was the most experienced with daycare, personal nanny, Head Start, and nurse training/experience with all of his certifications in CPR and such. Thanks to him we were ahead on potty training for my girls and they are advanced in their lessons for preschool (couldn't have done it without him!)

I'm not very fun fact filled. LOL! We have a toy poodle and a basset hound. People give us peculiar looks while we walk them because they're kind of a motley crew.

Love the dude nanny!
Hmm, fun fact about me is that I have 6 chickens in a little hen house in my backyard. We live in total clean-cut suburbia so we are quite the anomaly. I love my girls so much, they are so entertaining and give us the most delicious and beautiful eggs!
We love keeping them for eggs so much that we are actually adding quail to our backyard and we should be getting quail eggs in a month or so. Yum...

Anna, that is a strange combo, but adorable nonetheless! LOVE basset hounds! What are their names?

Mary, that's so awesome!! I can just picture it. I've never had quail eggs before, are they similar to chicken eggs in taste? My husband's grandparents have chickens and I swear his Grandpa would rather spend time with them than with the family!

I sooo want a nanny and I think we may need one after this baby! haha

I have 2 dogs and a cat.
My DH and I both played college basketball and that is actually how we met! (Huge sports family)
I have done tons of infertility treatments. We conceived my DS using FET after a failed fresh IVF 6 months before. This baby was conceived on our very next IVF!! It was sooo nice not having to wait and struggle too bad!

Fun fact about me.....I have a 3 lb Yorkie and she is my daughter. Only girl in the house. When we go out she wears hair bows, shirts and dresses. She even has a winter coat....LOL I'm so weird. NO I'm not the crazy lady that puts her dog in a stroller

Fun Fact:
I have a dog that I rescued from being beaten to death in Egypt. She's happy and healthy - aside from (I think) having headaches (she gets grumpy) and one blind eye.

I also have a kitty that was rescued here in the US.

I live in Grand Blanc! I actually know where DeWitt is since our local news station covers it on the weather radar I think you're about an hour away from me! And love the doggy wardrobe btw! I had to at the image of a dog in a stroller! Ya know, with your little one on the way, you could always get a double stroller.




Fun fact #2 about me - my husband and I met, got engaged, moved in together, and got married... all within 9 months! Talk about "knowing when it's right" a.k.a. moving fast.

Oh yeah, I know where you live. Probably closer to an hour and a half. DeWitt is the 1st city North of Lansing. I will NEVER put my dog in a stroller. Only weirdos do that LOL

Fun Fact about me.....My DH and I travel often for pleasure. We typically go on 2 to 3 Carnival Cruises a year. We have been to over 20 islands. Our next cruise is planned for June 23rd but that will depend on this pregnancy. If I'm doing well and I have doc. permission I will be GONE I will be 16 weeks at that point

#2 - Awww! My 2nd DD is my mini-me and we in particular have an extra-special bond as well. Must be the clone-factor.

#3 - Early happy anniversary to you both!
