I'm just coming out a phase where the first word to describe myself would be "mother". My youngest is almost two years and starting to assert her independance now. So I'm starting to be able to take a breath, and pay some attention to other things - like working out, reading more, getting out a bit to dance, talk, eat, see movies, mingle, meet people, not in any special order.
*Update- well, that breath didn't last long. Both my kids have ADD and my oldest has Asperger's (though that is now technically just another type of highly functioning Autism in the new DSM-V). So the kids still need a fair amount of my time. Still they are now 8 and 11. There is some level of independence.
**And while doing that discovering my kinky side (it used to say vanilla in the first line, but) I'm about a 65/35 sub/domme switch (I think)**
I am a dilettante, a geek, and always curious.
