Welcome Sunni! My name is Mel (I'll be 28 next month) and I'm married to my DH (34) for 8 1/2 years now. Our son is Gabe and he's 3 1/2. We live in Wisconsin.

I love having an only child! Once I got past the other people it was such an obvious choice for us.

Just jump right in and hang out!

Thanks for the welcome, Mel. I'm a Mac girl, too, and I'm trying to find the courage to get a tattoo. I've wanted 1 for.ever! My special year is coming to a close and I think I better jump on it this year.

The tattoo in my blinkie is actually one of my tattoos. If you hit refresh enough one of my siggies is my tattoo as well. I got it for my birthday 3 years ago. It's my third and largest (3ish hours for the session) and I have at least 2 more planned.

We've had a kid, tattoos are easy :) I used to CL the tattoo/piercing board before it closed so if you have questions let me know. I know way too much about tattoos :P

Welcome Sunni! I'm Jodi (35) and have my only Paige (8) with my DH Ken (42) My DH has 2 other children a son (18 and in Indiana) and daughter (23) who's married and expecting her first child around Christmas! She lives 5 hours away from us, we are in South West Texas, where all the rain has been happening!

I've always been torn about having one child but now that I'm going to be a Mema so young, well I figure it'll be fun to help and be able to go home to no dirty diapers! ;-) It wasn't my choice to have one but that's how it ended up being and I'm happy. I've started a new job working outside of the house and our family business since we sold them (woohoo) so I'm extra thankful we only have one child to support while we get on our feet again. My DH ran the businesses for 7 years and is very burnt out, so it's my turn to be the bread winner and he's working on his MBA.

I need to get myself over to the Only board more often, I spend too much time on facebook! lol

Welcome and I hope to chat with you more in the future.
Jodi

Welcome, Sunni! I'm Jodi (39) with DH (45) and our only Erin who is 3 1/2. She's our miracle and while we had hoped for one more, we're beyond thrilled to have her. :O)

We live in MN where it's hot and muggy with lots of mosquitoes right now. I work full-time from home but Erin still goes to daycare/preschool. She loves it and I'm thankful because she has truly learned a lot there and has tons of little friends. I'm also going to school part-time as part of a career change.

Looking forward to getting to know you and Olivia! The board has been slow this summer but we all seem to pop in and out eventually.

Thanks for the welcome and the info, Jodi. I was wondering if this board was always this quiet. It's quite hot and muggy here, too. Today was nice enough that we went to the zoo. I really need to find a job in Alaska.

I'll say welcome, too - I'm usually pretty quiet these days as my only is a month shy of 18, and I'm also an only but older (51), so I don't jump into all the daily stuff so much any more - feeling a bit long in the tooth! Honestly, though, both ds and I have enjoyed being onlies - not spoiled, not self-centered, not lonely...
