Introducing analogwatch!

Hi everyone! My name is Erin. I’m originally from Phoenix, Arizona: a place which sucks in many respects but I still rather unfortunately miss dearly — particularly in the wintertime. In late 2007 I reactivated my World of Warcraft account, which is a hobby that I can never quit for too long at a time, and joined a guild. (This is relevant, I promise.) The rogue class leader of that guild was a guy who started flirting with me first as a joke, then more seriously once we got to know each other. We hit it off, he came out to Arizona to meet me, we drove to California in a car for a week, then a month later I came to Michigan and I’ve been here ever since! We got married in February of 2009 then had our first child, a daughter, in August of 2009 and our second, a son, in December 2015.

When I’m not running around trying to accomplish everything ever all at once, up to and including parenting two children simultaneously, I enjoy video games and writing. For video games, I adore just about anything BioWare has ever made (Jade Empire was woefully underappreciated). For writing, I have mostly stuck to short stories of the LGBT romance variety though I have recently begun an endeavor to branch out into novels. I also adore musicals, and have very recently fallen down the hole that is Hamilton.

I also have an avid interest in both the medical fields and parenting,with a special focus on parenting children with special needs (most notably ADHD and sensory issues, with a more minor focus in autism). I particularly have an interest in the attachment parenting school of thought, and I suppose you could probably call me “crunchy,” if that’s a term you’d apply to someone’s parenting ideas.

I am looking forward to working on this project with all of my weasel-tastic Mama friends! I can’t wait to see what it’ll bring!
