Name:Christina

LO(s) and age(s):Amelia - 9, Anthony - 7, Andon - 7, Noah - 4, Mason - 1

What did you do for Memorial Day?Not much. Went swimming and to a great restaurant (Aladdin's) yummy.

When you met your DH/SO was it love at first site?Not really. I was going through my divorce when we became friends. Part of the reason we became friends in the first place was because we were both going through similar hard times. It wasn't until much later that I noticed how much I really wanted to jump his bones Wink

What is your favorite sport?Football

What is your moonbeam’s current favorite food?Yogurt

Is your moonbeam walking full time, sometimes, not at all?Not at all yet. I can barely even get him to walk while I'm holding his hands. He'd rather crawl.

What was your nickname as a kid?Christie Critter - ugh.

Do you fear your moonbeam will get stuck with a weird nickname in school? If so, like what?Dunno. You can't really make a nickname out of Mason. But he's kinda chubby so I worry about that a little.

Make up a quick poem about yourself:
I am woman hear me roar
I'm a mom and I can soar
I'm a lady delicate, quaint
But a lie-down pushover I just aint.

What is your favorite sport? Honestly dependso n the season.. such a sports fan that I like something year round... right now baseball but I LOVE college softball this tiem of year and since Bruins are still in the stanley cup I love hockey right now too

What is your moonbeam’s current favorite food? Watermelon!!! I packed a small take and toss container last week and her daycare teacher asked me to send more becuase she cried so bad when it was gone haha... and I guess it is good sine they are outside playing and hot and that is a cool snack

What was your nickname as a kid? Amac... it is still as an adult a lot too... some of my former players heard about it and call me it a lot now.. my current players call me just "S"

Do you fear your moonbeam will get stuck with a weird nickname in school? If so, like what? No not really... I think she will probably be Aves but we call her Ave Liz for her first and middle name and my players and students love it and yell it all the time when they see her

LO(s) and age(s): Luke, 4 1/2 and Jake, 14 Months

What did you do for Memorial Day? Went fabric shopping with a friend (she's making me dresses!), and then a cook-out with the in-laws. It was REALLY hot but we had fun! Ate too much too. Smile

When you met your DH/SO was it love at first site? We met when I was 16, working at an ice-skating rink. I don't know that it was love at first sight but I definitely had a crush on him right away b/c he always made me laugh. And he was cute. Smile

What is your favorite sport? To participate in or to watch? I don't really like playing any sports lol. I kind of like watching Hockey though. Smile

What is your moonbeam’s current favorite food? Salmon, Rice, and Pretzel Sticks. Weird child.

Is your moonbeam walking full time, sometimes, not at all? Oh my yes walking all the time. He's almost running sometimes, it's crazy. He is pretty much full steam ahead ALL THE TIME. :eek:

What was your nickname as a kid? Megs. So exciting lol.

Do you fear your moonbeam will get stuck with a weird nickname in school? Um, I guess we worry a little since his first name is so different, but since he generally goes by Jake I'm not too concerned.

Make up a quick poem about yourself: Um I don't know if I can do this....hahahha.

Name: Suzanne

LO(s) and age(s): Eve (13 months), Luke (3 years), Sean (5 years)

What did you do for Memorial Day? Took Eve to Urgent Care because she was throwing up on Sunday night. Apparently, it's just sinus stuff. Also, they announced the winner of the baby contest, and it wasn't Eve. We're OK with it though. She's still the most beautiful baby to us Biggrin

When you met your DH/SO was it love at first site? We clicked intellectually, but as he was walking towards me that first time, my actual thoughts were, "Oh boy, another Indian!" I should explain that I had a guy from his part of the world who I just wasn't interested in but he wouldn't leave me alone.

What is your favorite sport? My favorite sport to play is volleyball. I also like running. My favorite sport to watch is figure skating (and I also like the NBA playoffs and college football all season).

What is your moonbeam’s current favorite food? Beans, red beans in particular. She's also fond of string beans and carrots.

Is your moonbeam walking full time, sometimes, not at all? Full time walker, unless she's trying to go over stairs and raised doorways, then she semi-crawls.

What was your nickname as a kid? People used to sing "Oh Susana" to me, but I never responded to any nicknames in school, so they didn't stick. My grandpa used to call me Sue. He was the only one allowed to do that. Also, my aunt called me SueLou (my middle name is Louise). She was the only one to call me that until I told my DH about it, and he calls me that now.

Do you fear your moonbeam will get stuck with a weird nickname in school? If so, like what? No, there's not really much you can do with Eve. They might call her Belle or Izzy if they find out one of her middle names is Isabelle. I call her Evie Belle sometimes, and I also call her Lily Belle. I don't know if her classmates would ever catch wind of that unless she tells them though.

Make up a quick poem about yourself:
Curly hair
freckles, fair.

Is your moonbeam walking full time, sometimes, not at all? She's been full time walking for about two months already.

What was your nickname as a kid? Never had one, always wanted one- part of the reason we picked a name with a nickname for Beni!

LO(s) and age(s): L, 4, J,3, smalls, one on Friday!

What did you do for Memorial Day? We came home early from the beach because the baby was sick. Spent the day taking a long run, being at the pool with friends all morning, and cooked up a feast on the grill last night.

When you met your DH/SO was it love at first site? No, not when I first met him (at 18 ). BUT, when we ran into one another about 9 years later when I had moved back from the west coast it wasn't quite "love" at first site, but certainly a lot of interest/attraction Smile

What is your favorite sport? Impossible question. To watch, football or golf, though I love every sport barring the NBA. To play? I run, play tennis, and am addicted to golf. I played field hockey in college, and would love to see my daughter play some day!

What is your moonbeam’s current favorite food? He pretty much likes anything, I don't know that he really has a favorite.

Is your moonbeam walking full time, sometimes, not at all? He started walking last week....then with being sick it seemed to throw him back to full time crawling. Weird.

What did you do for Memorial Day? enjoyed the incredible day at home outside all day. Playing in the water, doing yard work, bbqing outside. Just enjoyed my little family.

When you met your DH/SO was it love at first site? No, we were in the same homeroom from freshman year on. Didn't turn into love until senior year!

What is your favorite sport? Horseback riding!

What is your moonbeam’s current favorite food? Oh man- everything! He LOVES fruit though!

Is your moonbeam walking full time, sometimes, not at all? He's walking more than he's not. He still crawls if he's really tired. He JUST started walking like this after he got tube surgery last two fridays ago. Poor kid was so unbalanced with all that fluid!

What was your nickname as a kid? Ton (sounds like "tawn")

Do you fear your moonbeam will get stuck with a weird nickname in school? If so, like what? I hope not. Our last name sounds like "ing" so we tried to pick names that wouldn't turn into verbs (like Jack "ing", will "ing", rob "ing" etc).

What did you do for Memorial Day? The actual weekend was busy: went camping, had Rhett's bday party, and then we came home Sunday and planted the garden and did some yard work but actual Memorial Day I just cleaned the house.

When you met your DH/SO was it love at first site? Met him in 2000. No, I had a different boyfriend at the time but I did think DH was super cute.

What is your favorite sport? None, sports are boring as hell to me (I'm sure this will change once my kids are playing tho!)

What is your moonbeam’s current favorite food? It's a tie between mac n cheese and pizza. Really anything is his favorite tho! Wink

Is your moonbeam walking full time, sometimes, not at all? Full time

What was your nickname as a kid? Didn't really have one, maybe Lissa?

Do you fear your moonbeam will get stuck with a weird nickname in school? If so, like what? I haven't really thought about it. I'm sure he'll get saddled with something being he has sort of an unusual name and our last name is 14 letters long. But he seems like an easy going guy so I don't think it'll get to him!

Name: Hilda

LO(s) and age(s): Alanis (3) and Leyla (1)

What did you do for Memorial Day? That was only our second full day in Jamaica. We went to the beach.

When you met your DH/SO was it love at first sight? Definitely not for me. I was still dating someone else. I thought DH was way too young and "fresh off the boat". He seemed nice enough, but I was not immediately attracted. I think it was closer to love at first sight for him. Oops.

What is your favorite sport? To watch? Probably baseball. To participate in? I guess boxing.

What is your moonbeam’s current favorite food? Hmm, she loves everything. But I guess grilled chicken breast is her favorite.

Is your moonbeam walking full time, sometimes, not at all? She walks most of the time now. Sometimes she will get lazy and go back to crawling though. When Alanis took off as a walker one day she never again crawled. So interesting how different they are.

What was your nickname as a kid? I never had one but always wish I did. I kinda wish they had called me "Hildy". Some mean kids in school did call me "Broom Hilda" for a while.

Do you fear your moonbeam will get stuck with a weird nickname in school? If so, like what? Not really. We call them "Nanee" and "Leylee" at home.

Hilda the Mommy
Enjoyed the beach, pool, and breeze
