I am so thrilled to have found this community.
My name is Amanda & I have lived in Utah, off and on, for most of my life. I not mormon - I was raised Catholic & attended parochial school. I have a one-year-old son Luke & I am not married (I live with my partner of 10 years). I am just starting to reach out to other parents & start sociailizing, so it is great to find a group of locals who are not focused on the predominant religion!

Hey, Amanda!

Im shelli and my little girl (13 months) is Paige. Iam not mormon and dont plan on raising paige mormon. My father is mormon, but my mom isnt and I lived with her all my life and didnt grow up mormon, but living in utah for most of that time made it hard.

Do you have any pics of Luke? What is he up to? I always love to hear about what stages boys are in as apossed to girls. It seems they progress allot faster.

Alright, I just looked at your journal. Luke is to die for:) What a looker!!


I liked reading your views on motherhood and how you feel about your son. I feel the exact same way about Paige. Life was so meaningless until I had her:)

Just wanted to let you know I checked out your journal and wanted to let you know that Luke is such a cutie pie:)

Thank you so much - LUke is pretty cute (but then again, I am so biased!)

I was comppletely amazed at how everything came into perspective when he was born. Nothing is more important to me than this child.

Everytime I go to respond to your comments, LJ cuts me off at the quick!
Thank you for the lovely comments. I am so crazy about my kiddo - and it is nice to read comments from other parents.

Is that your darling girl in your icon? She is a beauty!

Are you here in Utah? We should try to get these two together to play!

I live on Leland Avenue - just up the street from the duck park!!! I too am trying to sell my condo in Murray (4003 South 300 East). I am hoping it seels soon, as I really cannot keep paying two mortgages!!!

oh ya, if we could afford to do that we would but we will have to sell while occupied. How long have you had it on the market?
