Hi... in response to the "crunchy" vs "non crunchy" threads..<br><br>
My DREAM life would be--<br><br>
I would eat completely organic.<br>
I would never ever ever loose my temper.<br>
I would always instantly be by my child's side the minute they began to cry.<br>
I would homeschool<br>
I would live in a completely "green" way<br>
My kids wouldn't think playing in the tub with the water running is fun.<br>
I would have a hybrid vehicle that fit all seven of us.<br>
I would live in an area that had nothing but renewable energy<br>
I would ditch my tv, computer and DH's computer. (I might anyway!)<br>
I would have birthed all my children at home...<br>
I would have never used disposable diapers<br>
I would have never used formula or bottles for my first three.<br><br>
What would you do?

I would have a comfy commune village of a family in a quiet area where we live off the land. I'd be perfect, but hell- who's wishing there? I already am aren't I? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh"> :LOL<br><br>
Seriously, the only thing I really and truly want is to leave this world knowing I had a great relationship with my husband and children. I want to be happy with myself in the home, and outside. I want to feel like I lived for others rather than just myself.<br><br>
The details, the rest- how I birth and what brands I used are really not that important to me if I can look back and know I have a great relationship with those I love and I did more good than harm

Okay, I'll go.<br><br>
I would live on a planet where everybody ate all organic and all energy was drawn from a renewable source.<br>
I would live on a planet with clean water, clean air and plenty of wilderness available to get lost in.<br>
I would live on a planet where sincerity and kindness were valued more than profit and progress.<br>
I would remain forever in that moment of bliss when I realized that I wanted to spend my life with dh.<br>
I would find a way to live near all of my closest friends and also have the job I'm in (with days off on a regular basis <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ).<br>
I would manage to be len and limber and still be able to have ice cream every night.

Dream life, dream life? Or dream life, could be reality someday life?<br><br>
Dream life, dream life would be living on a tropical island in a tiki hut with my favorite people! Not likely to ever happen!<br><br>
The dream that I'm hoping to reach some day...<br><br>
We would live in a sustainable home in the mountains, but not far from the beach.<br>
Our home would be a farm sanctuary for rescued animals. (but not so many that it would be tons of work)<br>
I would be a massage therapist/yoga instructor.<br>
My kids and husband would be vegan.<br>
I would be very fit. (from all that yoga, mountain climbing, and surfing)<br>
My husband and kids would be happy with their lives away from our home.<br>
My brother and sil would live very nearby.<br>
We would spend our Sunday afternoons laying in a hammock strumming the guitar and making up songs and watching the clouds roll by.<br>
We would live very lightly on the earth.<br><br><br><br>

Okay this is my dream world:<br><br>
Living in a country where my values were the overall values of the country<br>
I would eat only organic, whole foods (okay anything else wouldn't exist in this idealistic country)<br>
UC all my babes as would all women (unless there was a real medical reason not too)<br>
I would have a lot of children<br>
I would not get horrid morning sickness (which would help with having a lot of babes)<br>
I would live out in the open country where my kids could run naked in the field (of course in this country there would be no issues w/nudity)<br>
Everything would be enviromentaly friendly, wouldn't even have to think about it<br>
I would never lose my temper<br>
All children would be unschooled<br>
All children would be safe<br>
circumcision would not exist at all<br>
There would be no violence<br>
there would be no organized religion<br>
vaxes wouldn't have ever been invented<br>
no drug companies<br>
Only doctors who are doctors for the love of teaching health and to fix injuries (not a big business)<br>
Not a society driven by money and power<br>
but one based on love , kindness and respect for all<br>
**disclaimer this is my ideal I fully realize not everyone would agree and so please note this as my opinions and not what I think is right for everyone now in this very world**<br><br>
My dream life in this world:<br><br>
To own a home out in the country<br>
have a fat organic garden<br>
have 5 kids<br>
have enough money so not to have to worry about having money<br>
never losing my temper with my kids<br>
working out all marital problems<br>
to have a couple true friends<br>
continue unschooling my kids<br>
having all my children be happy and healthy<br>
hmmm can't think of anything else right now.
