I'm so crunchy that we have taught Moo and Goo how to levitate to avoid harming the grass, you know plants have feelings too.

Goo is also very good at eating her boogers.... self sustaining I say!

ooh! That would be pretty! A hairy tea cozy! But then, wouldn't it be cruel to take the leaves of tea and dry and crush them? How terrible

I'm so crunchy that I will email The View every quarter hour until they apologize for cheering about baby formula today, and have Drs. Newman, Sears, Lawrence, Gartner, and Gordon on for a week long series about the evils of formula companies. With live nursing moms holding demonstrations and board certified lactation consultants drawing names of moms in the audience to have consultations right on the spot.

In fact I will have the whole cast of talent fired and replaced by moms who will nurse on stage daily and discuss how repulsive formula is.

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50

Today I watched Ellen instead of the View.

Helen Hunt was talking about her nursing bra.

Ya'll are too funny and I SO needed to laugh. OK I'm not in the greatest mood but better than I was 10 minutes before so here's my stab at it.



I'm so crunchy that after having all 5 children in the river bed out back (we wanted the lochia and amniotic fluid to go and feed the fiddler crabs and crawfish) we diapered them with moss from our oak tees. (of course the moss had already fallen down and I asked the red bugs very kindly if they would relocate. When they said yes I hand carried each and every one of them to moss still on the trees.) While in my postpartum periode I did not use luna pads but again our very wonderful moss which I then set back out side so it could replenish our wonderful oak trees. We gather naturally wild honey which the bees so nicely put into our pot when asked. We use the animals droppings to make "bricks" for our fire. We only eat the nuts and berries that are already dropped for us. We scrub our body with river reads and then allow the reads to float on down the river as the bass love the sheded skin.

How's that?

oh YEAH? well my children are so attached to me that they haven't yet been born! THEY ARE ALL STILL IN THERE! I am currently pregnant with a 5 year old, a three year old, and a 8 month old. Ages figured, of course, based on their "estimated due dates" plus three weeks.

That's good. I think you win the AP contest. If that's not Attached parenting i dunno what is. You must have the world's largest uterus.

Nice try, Indiana, but I am still more-AP-than-thou, because you can't breastfeed a still-unborn kid.

(Secret fear: CAN she? That would really, really be more-AP-than-me.)

Well, maybe Indiana can't but I can!!

I carry all three of my children in a pouch on my belly. Since my breasts are so large and pendulous, they easily reach into the pouch to feed my children. Unfortunately, I don't have a third breast, so they have to take turns nursing.

My daughters will be in the pouch until their 12th birthdays, at which point they will have a Bat Mitzvah and start nursing themselves. My son will be in the pouch until his 13th birthday when he has his Bar Mitzvah, but he will continue to nurse until he gets married and his wife can nurse him.
