The 2 thing I do that ya all would hate me for is this:
I vax
I circ' (because of religion NOT looks)

I BF and plan to self-wean
I co-sleep
I babywear (sling)
I eat very little processed foods
We buy organic when we can but thats not all that often

according to measuring devices, I'm super crunchy...but I sit here drinking my red bull, feeling kinda squishy.
I don't eat organic exclusively..the rest yeah...hb, cosleep, hs sling, bf till college (lol) blah blah blah. you get the idea.

I think my dh has far surpassed lay there, curled up on the bed this morning watching him do his 30min yoga routine. whadda guy.

I felt much crunchier when my stash consisted of 26 prefolds and 4 alexis covers...

WOW! I scored 115. :LOL

I tandem nurse (Jessa JUST self -weaned), cd, sling, no-vax yet, eat organic when we can, use birth center (couldn't afford home burth
), lots of other things....

Same here on not knowing cd was trendy! I know it's addictive in the crunchy world, but had no idea that it's a trend.

I'm crispy.

I bf. I'm open to CLW, but Libby weaned on her own when I got pg.
I cd.
I co-sleep when dd wants to, she's in her crib on the other nights. Totally her choice.
I have donated breastmilk to other moms.
I grind my wheat and make my own bread.
I use mama cloth.
We use some cloth tp, some paper tp.
I have c/s (pre-eclampsia, trust me, I'd love a homebirth... but the midwives go running when I come calling)
I drive a minivan.
I use more air conditioning than any human requires.

BTW, I will admit to being more than 100% irritated that I had to get docked 5 points on the quiz because I had to give DD my breastmilk in a bottle.

She didn't latch until she was 10 weeks old and I think it makes me MORE crunchy that I persevered and pumped for 10 weeks instead of just giving up.

So that quiz should give ME an extra 5 points for sticking with it even when a dozen LC's told me to give up!

Yes, I'm a bit touchy on that subject
