Not nearly as good as Shelia's or Maree's but I wanted you to see it...
Why I Love Baby University
Three years ago we had just gotten a computer and I had found out that you could find all sorts of freebies online when I stumbled across Baby University. All I had to do was post 20 times in a pregnancy journal and I would get a gift. I had never posted at a message board before but I gave it a shot. I have been at Baby U ever since. There are so many reasons why I love Baby U. Here are some of the big reasons.
I have gone through some pretty hard times in the past three years. I have lived in 3 states and moved several times. I spent most of one year in the house too depressed to leave. During this time I could always come to Baby U. It was familiar and comfortable. People were friendly. I had friends there and people who cared about me. I never imagined I could find these things online from people I have never met in person. From my time at Baby U I have made so many wonderful friends and even made a new best friend and someone I cannot do without. I love having my special place to visit daily to let out all my hopes, dreams and frustrations and to share it with others.
My home and life feel so much more organized and clean. Without Roxanna and Flylady I do not think I could have managed these changes! I never would have stuck with something so long if I did not have Baby U to come to and post about my accomplishments. It has been so nice to have friends to cheer me on and encourage me to keep up with my new good habits.
The biggest reason I love Baby U is that it makes me feel important. I love being a mom and a wife but before Baby U I felt like something was missing. Being a moderator and a Community Leader makes me feel like I am part of something special. That what I do matters to other people and that other people count on me. It is nice to know that if I disappear there will be many people wondering how I am and where I am at. And I love all the interactions with people that share so many similarities and so many differences.
I can’t imagine my life if I did not have Baby U. I think it would be a dull, dark place! I have changed so much in the past three years but I feel that many of those changes are because of the friends I have made and the support I have received from Baby U! I am ever so grateful to Dawn for making such a wonderful community!
