A brief intro

I just found this site in the past few days via the link on DailyKos.  It looks like an interesting place!

I’m a mother of two boys, a 2 year old and a kindergartener, living in Davis, CA.  I work as a researcher part time and have a degree in maternal and child health.  I grew up in Chapel Hill, NC, which a former high school teacher called “a pat of butter in a sea of grits” – thus the online handle.

My husband also posts occasionally on DailyKos (DanielJ).  We’re avid Democrats and I wish we could go to YearlyKos!  The time of year makes it tough.  If there is a YearlyKos ’07 it would be wonderful if it could be later in the summer, after school is out, to make it easier for parents to attend.

I look forward to reading more here.
