I am a mom of two little girls, who are 4 and 2. I am a former music teacher who is going back to school for a second bachelor's in astronomy and physics at the University of Pittsburgh. I hope to go on to grad. school and maybe be a professor someday, although I know it's a long road ahead of me. In the meantime, I am occupied with raising my daughters in an "attachment parenting" style, going to school part-time, teaching private violin lessons, trying to find time to spend with my husband, and volunteering my time as a La Leche League Leader. I consider myself to be a liberal pacifist. I am an ethical vegan and an atheist.
