I love these kinds of threads!

K, ds 17 has a computer in his room and a tv.
I don't have a tv but do have Netflix which I love!
I use flea and tick killer on the dogs
I buy my own yogurt, only occasionally do I make it.
I probably have a snarky tone too often innocent.gif:
I use paper products that are disposable/compostable wayyyy too much.
I have a fancy phone I also use wayyyyy too much.


mayamade soap + apothecary for family + home website and Etsy shop where I work with (and love) plants.

I unashamedly formula feed and, after carefully reading the studies and literature really don't consider it inferior to breastfeeding. That's probably the biggest one! I try to avoid the topic on this site, not worth it.

We use disposable diapers. We have cloth and we're trying to get back into using it because 'sposies are so @#$@# expensive. For awhile we were in a groove and used cloth very regularly, but we're having trouble getting back there. We've never exclusively done cloth, though.

Food is probably a big place- although I'd love to be able to eat all grass fed, pasture raised animal products, soaked grains, etc- it's simply not financially feasible. We do our best, but there are times that we eat too much fast food. I've given my toddler cookies for breakfast. Sure- they were low sugar, made with coconut oil cookies, but I still did. I'm also not bothered about organic vegetables.If we could afford it, yes. If we can't, I won't lose any sleep. I'm hoping to have a vegetable/herb garden next year, though!

I'm not sure if the plastic thing is actually related to attachment parenting- but I don't care about plastic. I'll take slow poisoning to needing stitches any day.

For some reason, the apartment complex we live in doesn't have recycling bins (they should- they used to), and going out of our way to recycle is really hard, so we don't recycle. That's something we're really upset about.

Not sure if our car counts or not. We now have two, one is a 15 year old car on its last legs that guzzles gas like it's going out of style. Again- finances. If we could afford a hybrid, I'd probably get one because my drive to work is all city driving- we'd pay virtually nothing for gas! We're down to 12 mpg. 12. The other is a decade old and doing much better at least.

this is just a moment in time, step aside and let it happen

I plead guilty to sometimes shouting, and allowing way too much screen time. I believe my son went temporarily insane yesterday from being on the ipad for too long. I call it parenting 'that could be improved.' I also found that offering a cookie was an effective way to get the boys to finish their meals. I dont usually do this, but thought to myself-mmm this worked well with at least one of my kids....
