Siggy

When I got pregnant with Matthew, I found an online group of women on a website called ivillage, an expecting club. We were all due June of 2005. I can't remember now if I stumbled across it or if I went looking for it. All I know is that they were my first online friends and they have been through so much with me. I adore them. (What does Jen say? "Real feelings, real friends.") I refer to them as JJG, which is short for June Jungle Gym, the name we gave ourselves a long time ago. We are now mothers to four year olds and continue to be friends, both on our board and on facebook. And, in a few lucky cases, real life friends*.

Over the years, some talented people have made me signatures (siggy's) that I use on the board. I'm going to share this one with you today, and will share some more as I find them. Cute, huh?

I can totally relate. I got invited to a forum similar to what you speak of by a friend, Jed is about 2 months older then the babies of the mother's on our forum but still very close in age. Their forum is called Sandbox Babies. It's very fun and I've gotten to know them quite well and be friends with them on FB as well, haven't met any yet in real life but soon I hope.

Isn't it funny that we can make friends that way nowadays? I've done that, too. I've known some women for years on a forum, some of them are my FB friends now, I've talked to one on the phone, and I'm making plans to have lunch with one soon. Sometimes I know more about my online friends than the ones I hung around with in person for years!
