Hello- new to the board and CDing

Hi- My name is Kelly and my H's name is Scott. Our little Ethan was born on Christmas day God's gift to us, we like to say. We are a military family and we are moving from San Diego to Monterey, CA in June. H is being sent to the naval post-graduate school to study in the space systems engineering program and t hen hopefully (cross your fingers) he will get into the astronaut program. I'm so jealous. I was a special education teacher up until Ethan was born, at the high school level.

I"m new to CDing. I tried when he was a newborn w/o sucess because I didn't know the tricks and by the time I figured t hem out, he was too small for his diapers. I sold t hem off and I'm trying again and so far, so good!! woo hoo! My Mom CD'd me, but w/ the traditional prefolds, pins, and rubber pants of that era. I'm not brave enough for the prefolds yet. I don't have any IRL friends or aquaintances who CD so I ask a ton of questions and luckily you ladies are very helpful and informative- thanks again!

I have two cats as well. H and I are both cat people.

I'm originally from CT and I went to UCONN - Go Huskies! H is from Illinois. We hopefully will find a permanent place to call home after Monterey - either Texas or Florida if all goes well and he gets into the space program. If not, who knows? We may even end up back in San Diego. I'd rather not though - its very pricy here and to be honest, I don't love it here. I love the weather, but the culture of SoCal isn't really for me. Its very lable concious here, very "live well above your means b/c its easy to do here" and people seem really lazy- everyone complains about the lack of m oney but everyone has cleaning people, landscapers, etc. No one does anything for t hemselves here. Also, people are really really wasteful here. I'm just not loving it. We have made some really great friends here through our church and that will be very very hard to leave. I never thought I'd move away from everything I knew and find such wonderful friends elsewhere.

Anyway, that's me.
-Kelly

Oh, my screen name- that's my name on other boards I'm on. I started out on www.theknot.com when I was engaged and "Kelolsen" was my hotmail account at the time - Kelly Olsen (my maiden name). I used that as my screen name and just kept it. A padawan is for my H- he's the biggest Star Wars fan ever created, and when I was pregnant, he kept calling the baby "My little padawan" which is a young jedi in training.
