West Fargo family - new to Mothering.
Hello fellow NoDaks! I haven't figured out all your abbreviations yet so you're stuck with the long version.
Married to hubby for 15 years, 10-yr-old daughter, 8-yr-old son. We're new to the "crunchy" lifestyle so kids were vaccinated, wore disposable diapers, slept in their own cribs and ended up on formula after 6 months of breastfeeding. Let the guilt trip begin!
Lucky for our son, we did get enlightened about circumcision prior to his birth so he escaped that nightmare.
Now that we know better we're working toward a more holistic, chemical-free, wholly natural/organic home. We do as much organic food as we can find and afford. Our kids go to public school but we send lunches (school menus are terrifying). We choose kinesiology/chiropractic care and supplements whenever possible rather than antibiotics and traditional medicine. (By the way, our chiro moved to CA ... anyone know of a good practitioner in the area?)
I participate in a handful of co-ops for organic food, cleaning supplies, health/beauty products, etc. All our meats come directly from my parents' farm and veggies come from a Park Rapids CSA.
I work part-time (mornings) and chauffeur the kids in the afternoons.
Would love to get in touch with more "crunchy" or "semi-crunchy" families in the Fargo area. Am looking forward to learning more about this site and all its resources and connections. Can't wait to learn even more!
