    Please God let this work! 
  • 1. What does your screen name mean? 

       DH's nickname for DD is Little Pea and mine has been Big Pea since she was born.  Before she was born I was just Pea so we are together Little&BigPea. ;)  That was not my SN though when I joined The Bump, when I joined up I used a very personal SN because I did not know or even think I would ever use the message boards.  So, once I started participating I had to change my SN.

    2. How did you discover The Bump? 

    Day I found out I was pregnant I was at work and I couldn't talk to DH yet either beause he worked night and was still sleeping.  So, I googled "I am pregnant now what?" and The Bump popped up.  The addiction just expanded from there.  

    3. What is your favorite and least favorite thing about The Bump? 

    Good advice and awesome friends I have made would be my favorite and my least favorite was all those changes they made earlier this year and the crappy search function.  Oh, and I wish they would release an app for TB to make Bumping from my phone easier.  I only Bump from work because I don't use a laptop at home and Bumping from my phone or iPad is terrible.

    4. How many kids total? 

    1 and we are done. ;)

    5. How old are you? 

    33

    6. Favorite past time? 

    Anybody who knows me knows I am cloth diaper junkie.  I've been off the buying bandwagon for about 2-3 months but I still love looking and learning everything I can about CDs.  I am going to be really disappointed if DD PT's early.

    7. If you had no kids, what would you and your SO do for fun? 

    I can't image my life without DD anymore.  Probably TTC. ;)

    8. Now that you have kids, what do you and your SO do for fun? 

    Go to bed early!  Ha, sounds terrible, but we were never crazy.  I probably would be seeing a lot more movies in the theater.  Now we usually just wait for them to come out on Redbox.  I am going to see the Hobbit somehow over the holidays.

    9. Favorite drink of all time? 

    Water, it's the stuff of life! =D

    10. Share something special about yourself.

    I am a super nerd.

  • I know I'm way late with this, but we're having a wonderful time on our Christmas vacation. Merry Christmas everyone! 

    1. What does your screen name mean?  It's something I came up with when I was 12 and very much into Star Wars novels.

    2. How did you discover The Bump?  I had seen it in passing when I was using theknot, and once I found out I was pregnant, I came to investigate

    3. What is your favorite and least favorite thing about The Bump? I love getting to talk with other women who are in the same "life moment." It's fun to get to know people and share in the joys and lend sympathy for the sorrows.  But it's definitely been a big time waster for me. I'm really not efficient to begin with.

    4. How many kids total?  1, so far.

    5. How old are you? 29

    6. Favorite past time?  I bounce around between all sorts of things. Recently I've been doing a lot of yarn work. I also spend way too much time on facebook.

    7. If you had no kids, what would you and your SO do for fun? We would travel a bit more than we do, but not a whole lot because DH is still pretty new in his job (= not much time off). We would go out to eat more, and I would play way more video games with him!

    8. Now that you have kids, what do you and your SO do for fun? We haven't been doing as much together as we would like to since DS. But we do watch movies and shows together. Just after Thanksgiving, we went out on our first post-baby date.

    9. Favorite drink of all time? I dislike picking favorites... I love water, and would be happy to drink nothing else. But I am a big fan of cream soda.

    10. Share something special about yourself.  I just got a dissecting scope for Christmas, and I'm so freaking excited to catch some bugs and look at them!!! (Yes, I am a biology nerd.)
