Like I said I am wet soggy bread. I tried! I swear I did! We do buy organic when it is there and we CD(it's so darn cute) and bf(I do what is best bor dd). I cannot do the co-sleep thing. I have a VERY bad back. Although at the end of the night towards daybreak it looks like a dogpile in my bed. Does that count?
I try to recycle whenever I can, it just does not happen often. I am just not very good.

ETA...
And one time I even bought one of those prewrapped potatoes to microwave that were washed and ready to go in plastic. That is probably really bad.
Oh and I always buy jello in the single serving containers.

See I am wet bread....bread in milk.

I vaccinate my daughter.
We eat processed food like you wouldn't believe.
I drive an SUV.
I eat meat, love cheese, and have my share of veal.
I drink bottled water, and more often than not, don't recycle.

I cloth diaper because it's trendy.
I breastfeed because it's the best thing for my child.

Am I going to be banned, now?

I think we were seperated at birth. NEED the SUV......LOL.

You know I'd LOVE to birth at home. I have high blood pressure quite badly even when I am NOT pregnant and that always causes such a fuss.

I think I am half scared of not havig any pain meds either. I am a super whimpy baby. I WISH I could be half the women these home birthers are. I am just not cut out for it. I cry for my own Mother during delivery. How pathetic is that???

Please dont let something so small make you feel bad... you and only you are the final deciding factors in who/what you are as a person and parent. Being a parent isnt about scores or tests... its about much more than that.

Heck I know people who do all of those things on that quiz but then hit their children... i wouldnt exactly look up to them as crunchy or a better parent than me because they scored higher.

totally agree....I am not crunchy and I KNOW I am a good Mother. It's what works for you and your family.

I don't think I've met a bad Mother on here.

I had to full time pump for my first dd for about a month. She would NOT latch on at all. It was that ar she'd starve or eat formula. I think I made the best choice. I have to pump every once in a while for my second dd because her latch and suck is so strong that sometimes I think she swalows my nipples.....Ugh. I have to give them a break.
