I thought this would be fun. I took it years ago and got the result "Pretty crispy!" but I guess I've become slightly more crunchy over the years. I moved up one category to "Mmm! Love that whole-grain crunch!" I still consider myself more crispy than crunchy though.

Cute test!

Not good for non-parents, though, as we can know what we want, but not what will happen :)

I got a 147, but I think I got marked down because I can't sew.  (I was scarred for life by the C- grade I got on my sewing project in junior high.)  lol.gif

99 - "Mmm! Love that whole-grain crunch!" 

 

Probably right on target.  No doubt the most-docked of all my answers - most were moderate, and some clearly the crunchy choice - was undoubtedly the upcoming, unmedicated hospital birth.  One gets no points for wanting it otherwise.  

 

(But it was fun!)

79 - Pretty Crispy! That's what I thought. :) The breastfeeding stuff probably docked me. I haven't been successful breastfeeding yet. Trying again this time though! Also I shave and wear make-up.

Hah!  So funny...  I'm a "Super Nutty, Ultra-Crunchy, Granola Earth Mama!."  Which is funny, because I consider myself to be pretty far toward boring on the MDC scale.  But I guess compared to "normal" people IRL, I would be a crunchy-ish lady.  Most of my friends certainly think I'm crazy...

92, just made it over to whole grain crunch!  That's where I expected to be, I consider myself pretty middle of the road when it comes to crunch :)  FUN!

162... and, truthfully, a little disappointed that I was only 8 points off from "Crunchier than Grape Nuts!"  Will I earn one or two more points in a few months if being too pregnant to shave keeps me from doing it very often?

180- Crunchier Than Grapenuts. I think being a seamstress really helps score brownie points on that test.

 

Oops, I just mentioned brownies and now I want some. Better dock me a couple points. yummy.gif

I'm at 83.  Pretty cripsy!  I think that's about right.  I plan to do things like child-led weaning and NFP for birth control (which I might not even need considering my history!) but I can't lie...I do still wear makeup and shoes.  :)
