Apparently last spring was a very lovin’ season because there were a LOT of babies born in December! It seems that about the time I got rested up from one birth and made sure the new mom and baby were a happily nursing pair, another baby was on the way. : ) All that birthin’ work is sure one way to warm up the holidays!
I’m looking forward to getting this blog up and running so I can interact with all the preggies and mommies in the blogosphere. I’ve been spending a massive quite a bit of time communicating with my pregnant friends and new moms via email, so I decided it was time to move into the fast lane and spread the love. : )
I could use some help with something, though…. What is a good word I can use to describe new moms? My expectant moms call themselves preggies, but would we call a postpartum mom a… postie? That sounds a bit too much like pastie, and that brings up images of the gal in Designing Women who had the talent that Suzanne Sugarbaker admired so much. : ) But I digress….
Anyway, if any of you can come up with a nickname I can use to refer to my postpartum moms, I would really appreciate it! I’d like to have some kind of giveaway and make this a little contest…. Maybe in the future!
Okay, I hope to hear some suggestions!
