New Member Intro Survey  
1. Name (how should we address you?) and age: Erin, 30
2. Location: Cambridge, MA (Boston)
3. Ages of child(ren): Sam, 11+ months, and Tommy, 12.5 yrs.
4. Currently pregnant?: No, but plan to be by the fall of this year.
5. What number pregnancy is this for you?: Will be my 3rd.
6. Due date for current pregnancy: N/A
7. SAHM, WAHM, Work in Office, Student, etc: Currently work in office days, hoping to switch to nights asap so I can be home days with the kids.
8. Areas of mothering "expertise": Well, I've been a mom for over 12 years, so I like to think I've got a bit of general experience on my side. I consider myself to be an extremely realistic parent, and know that you may start of with a certain set of ideals and through time you learn to adapt to real life.
9. Best part of being a 2nd (or 3rd, etc.) time mom: Having them so far apart has really made this time around seem like the first time all over again. I was very young when I had my first (17), and I feel like I have so much more to offer (mostly patience) this time.
10. Hardest part of being a 2nd (or beyond) time mom: Generally I've just found it easier (so far, anyway)...
