I love reading these! We're actually having an epicly un-crunchy moment right now: Watching Finding Nemo, Ds is eating popcorn from a bag, I'm eating a bowl of ice cream covered in (HFCS laced) chocolate sauce, and I'm nursing DS 2 while on the computer (which I would have never done w/ DS1- I only used it when he was sleeping)

I'm always looking to increase my knowledge of healing herbs : ) Would love to see other families 'go to' remedies for common aliments in children and adults. Any book recommendations would also be greatly appreciated!

DS (just turned 3) has been going on the potty for almost 2 months now, which is totally fantastic.

We've never done time outs or anything like that because we haven't really had a reason to so far, so this new behavior has me feeling bewildered in terms of how to react. I've been trying to help him name his feelings ("Wow! Rowan is feeling excited...

The hospital based midwife listened to baby's heart at 16 weeks and said it sounded great. Yesterday our new midwife listened and said she heard a definite arrhythmia. Now I'm feeling nervous- all of the literature I read online said it could be (and most likely is) benign, which is...
Hey Mamas : ) Oh my goodness, it's been SO long since I've been on MDC! I have so many new pictures of the progress on our little space that I am going to share my Facebook album public link instead of trying to upload them all here! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.167969886550485.44400.100000124230135&l=e8d0f875b1   There's been even more work done since these were taken, DH teaches at a school that has session in the summer, so they have two short breaks-...
