Okay, so I keep saying that I’m going to make an “about me” post but I never get around to doing it because I’m never on my computer and I don’t do long text posts on my phone. Well, the baby’s sleeping and I’m actually on my computer for once, so here goes.
Hey new followers!! My name’s Erika Linn. I’m 22 years old and from the lovely Denver, Colorado. I have a son named Esaias Robert who is now four months old. He was born October 26th. He’s so lovely and he’s definitely the best thing to ever happen to me. I’m a single, stay at home mom. I currently live with my grandparents, which is great because I don’t know if I could do this completely on my own. I plan on staying home until Esaias turns one. I don’t like the idea of putting him in daycare at such a young age, so I’m just going to make it work until then. I’m all for attachment parenting. I co-sleep, co-bathe, baby wear and don’t let him CIO. I exclusively breastfeed. I use cloth diapers and disposables because my stash isn’t very big and I don’t want to have to wash his diapers every day. I selectively vaccinate. Now, just because I do these thing doesn’t mean I look down on mothers/fathers that don’t. As long as your kid is happy and healthy, then who is anyone else to judge?
Before I was a mommy, I worked a lot. I was in telemarketing for two and a half years before I went on maternity leave. It was the one job I said I would never do and it turns out it was the thing I was the best at. I guess I’m just a pretty good bullshitter. I also modeled occasionally. I’m still building my portfolio and as soon as I get my pre-pregnancy body back, I can pick that back up. I sing. I’ve been in too many choirs to count including women’s choruses, mixed choruses, a’capella and my local gay and lesbian chorus. I used to do some theatre and I plan on getting back in to that once I have more time on my hands. I feel most comfortable on stage, which is weird because I have major social anxiety. I’m a total mountain girl/beach bum mix. I love the outdoors. I like climbing, camping, hiking, and as much as it terrifies me, I love off-roading. When I’m on the coast, I never leave the beach. If I could move somewhere that had my mountains (and I mean mountains, not the hills that everyone else calls mountaints) and the beach, I would do it in a heartbeat. I read a lot. Not much as I would like to lately, but I still sneak it in here and there. My favorite books are Brave New World and the entire Harry Potter series. I read comics as well. I’m a total girly-girl, always playing with my make up and hair. It’s actually quite ridiculous.
I know there’s a ton more that I could say, but nothing’s coming to my mind right now. Curious about anything else? Just ask! I love talking to you guys!!
