Hi all! Can't believe it's taken me this long to join you guys here :) I'm due with my fifth () baby around 11/11-ish, and am a longtime MDC mama. My older kids are 12, 9, 4 and 21 months.
We are generally a pretty crunchy family. I've CD'd three of my four kids, I'm a vegetarian of 16+ years, we have always un/homeschooled, etc. Anti-vax, anti-circ, pro-homebirth, breastfeeding/CLW, gentle/non-violent communication, all that good stuff.
I live in Texas, and we hope to someday build an off-grid sustainable home. Right now, we live in the country, and have a greenhouse but no animals. That's mostly my husband's department
I do a lot of artsy/creative things, most notably my local henna business, called Otherwise Quite Good. You can see my art gallery and such at http://www.otherwisequitegood.com /shameless plug
I've had two hospital births (one awful, one just fine), a birth center birth, and a midwife-attended homebirth. Planning a UC with this one :)
Glad to "meet" everyone! Looking forward to getting to know y'all!
Freethinking Earth-mama of five.
Welcome to the group.
