I'm so crunchy, I haven't showered in two weeks.

Oh, wait. That's not "I'm so crunchy...", that's "I'm so crunchy because...".

Never mind.

OK, OK, I think I can do this. I'm so crunchy...

We conceived our child at sunrise on the summer solstice in an octoganal purple yurt (constructed, of course, only from fallen birchtree branches, hemp rope and handwoven herb-died organic wool from our fifth-generation family tribe of freerange sheep)...

Then we delivered, natrually, on the spring equinox, at midnight in the open air, warmed by a bonfire of yak dung and reclaimed cedar scraps, accompanied by our friends, family, a shaman, an herbalist and a drum-playing doula...

It was a lotus birth, and I stayed with the baby in an underground cave until the cord fell off, licking water off stalactites and eating organic mushrooms.

(I don't have to mention that we don't use diapers, but I did wrap the baby in recycled handwoven unbleached organic cotton blankets.)

Now I am living off homegrown yeast and fermented soy curd while I wet nurse six neighborhood children, and my husband.



Oh... I almost forgot to mention the peace sign tatooed on my cervix.

I actually did this!! Well, during labor anyway- it was just too intense for me so I sent her outside with DH and gave birth about 10 minutes later. They came back in before the placenta was out. It was so cute when Leah toddled into the bedroom, looked at her newborn sister, and exclaimed "BAY!!!!! BAY!!!! BAY!!! BAY!!!!"

Now as a WAHM I meditate on peace and weave silk diaper covers for other babies. I was too busy being crunchy to see this thread.

You must have missed it because you're so crunchy that you choose to live in a house powered only by a stationary bicycle, and your computer wasn't fired up at that time.

This thread is too long, but that cracked me up. I knew a person who actually lived like that.

Ok, so she's got the "reuse" and "recycle" parts down. But so much for "reduce"! (Isn't this post #207?)

Maybe we could all type really really tiny, to save bandwidth.

Me too! At a certain point during the labor, I had to explain to dd that her nursing was making the contractions a bit stronger than I wanted to deal with, so I asked her to just sit in a corner of the room where she could see me and I could see her but she wouldn't have to worry about anyone tripping over her or trying to make her leave the room.

She understood pretty well since she was almost three years old at the time.
