How long have you been on CM, and what was happening in your life when you joined?

I joined in May 2008. I had just found out I was pregnant with my now five month old daughter. I had been with my fiance for a little over a year. I was 19, and now I'm 20.

Yeesh, time flies by fast.

  • I joined in either late March or early April of this year. I'm prego and at home....and in a town where I don't know anyone. So I decided to try to see if there were any moms in my area on here. There are a few, but they never get on.

  • I have been here on the original incarnation called Club Mom since it's inception 7 or 8 years ago, I have only been over here at Cafe mom since Jan when they pulled the plug at club mom. My son was diagnosed with ADHD and I was looking for info and what I call my online support group. In that time I have made lifelong friends.

  • I joined in February 2007, after seeing it advertised on my myspace page. I was 22, I was a new mom, and I was all alone with my husband deployed and my family 1000 miles away. I was very alone and I really had no one to talk to. I joined several groups. I met some moms from my local group and we had many playdates and I also met several awesome ladies from one of my other groups, the Patio, and now consider many of them close friends :)

  • I joined at the end of January 2007. I was living in Pennsylvania back then and my youngest daughter was 9 months old. Now she's 3 and quite the handful and we're living back in Chicago again.
    I remember there wasn't much to do here when I first joined. There were just photos and journals. Then a week after I joined they started groups and this place just took off.
