Why I’m Thankful for Caller ID


I’m not avoiding my mother, but I get tense when I see her on my caller ID lately.

We tend to stay in touch by email more than by phone, and if she calls it usually means that there’s something that can’t wait on email. We’ve lost five members of our extended family since October 2. We had absolutely no warning with two of those people. One was a young teen.

So as much as I love my mother, every time I pick up the phone to talk to her now I’m expecting bad news.

  1. Hi, there. This comment doesn’t relate directly to this post, and I don’t believe that you are currently pregnant as I see your child is now in college. But I wanted to see if you may be able to help me with a project that I’m working on…

    I’m producing a new season of “I’m Pregnant And…” for the Discovery Fit & Health network. We’re searching for women who are currently 5-8 months pregnant and in a poly family or poly relationship.

    We’re interested in exploring both the challenges and rewards of dealing with pregnancy in this alternative lifestyle as well as what it’s like to raise a child in a poly family or relationship. Is there more support available? Is the mother raising the child herself or is it a community responsibility? We want to uncover any complexities that may exist and gain a better understanding of the polyamorous lifestyle and culture.

    Do you know any expectant mothers who may be interested in participating or having a phone conversation with me? If so, they can contact me at TVcastingIPA@gmail.com. Thank you!
