  1. Aww, thanks Sessha. Ditto for us, we assumed we'd start having little ones several years ago and just kept putting it off until one day I woke up and I was in my 30's AND I HAD SOME GREY HAIR! I'm glad I'm not alone, too. I really was starting to feel like a weirdo. Everyone around me keeps having babies. My step-sister is pregnant with her fourth, and I think that's what started me on my crazy spiral this time around. Also, my bio dad who I haven't talked to in 5 years called me to ask when I was having babies, and that's literally all he wanted to know. Grrr... We're both very open to adoption, and that's another thought we have from time to time, adopting some older children. I know that comes with its own set of challenges, but at least it makes me feel less panicky about feeling I have to make a decision now before my body quits. There are lots of ways to be a mom. Right now, I'm a mommy to some furry little hellions that purr occasionally.
  2. Just wanted to pop by and thank you for posting the "to have or not to have" thread. Selfishly speaking, it was just what I needed to read today I'm not in my 30's yet, but I always assumed I'd start having a gaggle of children as soon as I got married. It's been two years now, and I find myself struggling with the fact that I have no desire to alter our dynamic. It's alarming to realize that I'm not as ready to have kids as I thought I was, so I got some vicarious reassurance knowing that I'm not the only one and reading everyone's wonderful responses. So I guess I'm just thanking you for being your lovely, brave, and honest self! <3
  3. Yes, thanks once more. I'm still giddy with love for my Lorelei Ondine. I saw a little girl walking down the street in the rain last night with her mom and a dog and pictured her as a Lorelei Ondine and it made me feel even stronger about the name. It's so perfect. It's lush and swishy and so many shades of blue.
  4. Wow! I'm so surprised and delighted that you went with Lorelei Ondine! So glad I was able to help…I'm doing a happy dance of my own over here!
  5. No worries, thanks for the info you had!
  6. Oh Faerydae! My guiltiest of guilty pleasures lol. Otter actually turned me on to the name...the sources I can find say it means "dark child" and/or "gift of the faeries." It's difficult to verify history or country of origin because it's apparently a very popular screenname so you get lots of WoW results and such when you Google search. It's not on either, which is usually my more accurate resource, even though they are missing some of the more unusual names. There's also a band called Faerydae, and they use the "gift of the faeries"'s a Dutch band, so maybe the name has Dutch roots? I tend to pronounce it somewhere between Faraday and "fairy day." Sorry I don't have more solid info!
  7. I have a question about a name in your sig: Faerydae. Is this an actual name you've found? Or just a fun magical name? Is it pronounced like Faraday, the scientist? I've always loved the name Faraday. It was used in a fantasy book series and she was such a cool female character, I've always thought it could work as a name. If Faerydae is real, and pronounced the same way, then my love of it just shot through the roof because oh my gosh, it has a faery in it!!
