jump_mama_jump, I really LOVE my vaporizor. You don't get a lingering smell, the kids don't breath second hand smoke, AND you can vaporize stems and all.
Joining in! MJ has been a loved resource for me as a woman and mother. It has stopped more than one rage outburst in its tracks, as well as quelling anxiety. Its like my daily return to the earth. Oh how I love tending my garden after a lovely breath of herbal remedy! I am also a clean-the-house-with-MJ person. With the right strain, it can really boost you! I also do lots of creative writing and art. I've got two little boys, I've never hid it from them. I also...
Hey lady!!!
Okay, I'm not feeling too good right now, I will try to keep this from turning into a novel. I am reaching out for help here because the research I have been doing has left me even more overwhelmed and confused than when I started. I've got two boys, one 3yo and one 5yo. They've been in preschool for about a year and a half, full time. Both were breastfed for about 2 years give or take. The little one was given some formula when I was working part time. During both...
I am currently weaning myself off of Prozac, after having been on it for almost 8 months. I started taking it when my youngest was 8 months old. I had just ended the relationship between my partner and I, and feared I'd really spiral downward. I also started phone consultations with a PPD specialist at the same time. I'm going to be completely honest here. I believe the prozac helped for the first two months, during that super rough time, but they would have been near...
re: expectations/hopes measuring up to the "reality" (or my interpretation of it) of the birth For both births, they didn't measure up. Maybe somewhat, but ultimately, the births took their own course no matter what I thought. From my standpoint, surrendering to letting the birth goes as it needed to (instead of clinging to my hope/expectation that it would be smooth and easy, which invariably made it not so smooth and easy), and trusting that in each moment of the...
I did! You can do it! I recommend identifying what your specific fears are, and examining the "truth" behind them. It may take time, but you can throw out the fear altogether, and the collective fear of the culture. If you expect or fear that something is going to "come up" during the birth, then it may be likely to happen. Taking things moment by moment, going into a detached, altered state of consciousness, is what I strived for. I tried to see each "thing" that "came...

I'm a very small person, and our tub (a normal average one) just wouldn't do it. I needed to be able to kind of "hang". My friend who...
I'm 23 with an almost 3yo and a 1yo. I wanted to add more to this post, but one of them just woke up!
