Hello, again

Hello, Again!
My name is Lindsey. I am a 33 year old, bi-polar single mama, grad student, living in Montreal. I'm a former Girl-Mom. I was active here, a few years back. I joined in 2003 after the LA Mama Gathering. I was married, and my daughter was 2 1/2. Now, my daughter is 11 years old and I'm divorced. Lots has changed since I was here last. I hope to meet some new like-minded mamas and reconnect with some of you older GMs.
I'm actively producing a podcast for HipMama.com, our sister site. I'd love to talk to new and old members for a Girl-Mom feature in the next few months. Email me at

if you are interested in participating!

Re: Hello, again

Horray! I'm so glad to see everyone coming back!
I'm Kat. I'm 30, now, and my kiddo is 9 going on 10. I'm living in Minneapolis, still. I started here back when I was pregnant with Zoe, which seems like a long time ago!

I was having babydaddy drama, and for the most part he has disappeared. I am married and have been for five years now. My partner and I are trying to have another babe, but no luck yet!

I work for a non-profit which works with people with disabilities to remain in their homes and communities. I do payroll, and a bit of everything else, for the PCA program.

I still knit a lot, read a lot, spend too much time on the internet, try to meditate more, try to garden. I'm learning more about using herbs to medicate. I'm also working with local mamas to restart the mom mafia (this time we're not just taking down dead-beat-babydaddies, we're taking down the gov't!), in response to that anti-woman legislation, etc. that's been going on, and am working on a 'zine for radical mamas who have to work with a bio-medical model b/c of their own or their children's health. I deal with anxiety with myself, and Z has ADHD, anxiety, and possibly SPD as well.

I'm so excited to see how all of you are doing!
