I've been realizing there's a ton of new mamas on here, and I'm unfamilular with everyone ... so let's all reintro ourselves and we can get to know each other more!
I'm Kat. I'm 24 (will be 25 in July), and have a kiddo who will be four in June -- Zoe.
I'm not with my kid's dad. I broke up with him two weeks before our wedding, when I was eight months pregnant, and moved back in with my parents. I moved out when Zoe was 9 months old.
Now, I'm in skool full time for social work, and will be done with a two year degree in a year. I plan to get a job and continue to go to skool part time until I have a four year degree and continue on to get a masters degree. I also have pipedreams of being a lawyer, but in the mean time I want to work with "youth at risk."
I currently work part time at a children's bookstore, and live off of student loans from the gov't, the bank, and my parents.
I live in Minneapolis, MN with just Zoe and me, but we have many traveling kids crashing on our couch through out the year.
I am currently dating a trans-man named Jack (we've been seeing each other for about a month now).
I love to read, knit, watch bad movies, hang out with friends.
I'm a radical, pro-choice, left-wing, dumpster diving, feminist and hope to raise my daughter to have the same values.
Somedays I love parenting, and somedays I hate it. My kiddo wasn't planned at all (I was using a condom and on the pill -- the condom failed and they found out two years later that St. Johnswort counteracts the effects of Orthotricyclin), but I love my kiddo to death and would do anything for her.
That's me summed up.
Who are you?
