I'm 26, a 4th grade teacher, and I've been married since August 8, 2008, although my husband and I have been together for 9 years.
I'm not one to judge, as long as I'm not being judged. I'm friendly and always willing to listen and give advice when needed, although I do have a disclaimer; I'm only human, I don't know much, if anything at all.
I recently miscarried my first pregnancy. We will try again this summer and hopefully be more successful the next time.
I'm pro-choice. I believe in reincarnation and feel that if a person is not ready to have a baby, they shouldn't. I don't feel that a child should grow up in a home where they may not be loved or cared for because the parents made a dumb decision. I feel that child should be able to be reborn into a home where it will be happy and wanted.
When I have children, ideally (although I know things don't always work out the way you want; that's life) I want to use as few meds and have as few needles as possible in my body. I want to breastfeed until I either dry up or teeth start sprouting because I truly believe in the amazing power of breast milk. Ok, that sounded strange, but whatever. The way I was raised by my mom has showed me exactly what kind of mom I do not want to be. I will never cuss at, degrade, or hit my children, although an occasional spank may be appropriate. I also want my kids outdoors as much as possible.
You don't have to agree with me, and I don't have to agree with you. But I will respect your beliefs if you can respect mine.
