    It seems like so many of the families I know deal with food allergies. I am not sure if Crunchy parents are just more on top of things like this or if having a child with a food Allergy many has parents doing more research and going more Crunchy. What ever the case […]

  I saw this image on facebook and I had to share it. I remember my couponing days and I remember how hard it was even all those years ago to save money on healthy things because so many of the coupons where for processed junk! I had friends who would joke that they wouldn’t […]

3102013154145

  Sadly a few weeks ago my son was faced with an adult he cares about insulting him for no good reason. As a mother I wish I would have been there to protect my son from the situation. Moms are not always there though, so I ask, please be mindful of insulting children. If […]

Crunchy Moms Opinion – Time Cover Breastfeeding

Breast feeding seems to be hitting the mainstream media as if it was almost normal. Good thing it is normal! First there was the uproar over the oreo “basic instinct” print AD. I think it is adorable personally. Kraft’s AD said that this was supposed to be a Korean one time use AD and not […]

Parents – You must stop this!

A circumcision lawsuit ended in a Win against the Dr and Hospital who preformed it! In short, circumcision is genital mutilation and it needs to stop. There is no educated reason for doing so.  My son is intact. His father is not. I learned about the importance of foreskin while on the forums in Mothering.com […]

Sodastream Review — Is it worth it

      Honestly  I can not say I was jumping up and down to get a sodastream. I though my children and husband would like it but worried it might not be worth the space and at worst might be just as unhealthy as normal soda. I really didn’t get why there was such […]

How do crunchy parents fight?

The same way you do I would imagine. There is no one right to argue any more than there is a right way to parent. I can however tell you what training in non-violent communication and peaceful parenting has done for my marriage. I think knowing what works for you and what doesn’t is so […]

A moment for Mommy to Giggle!

Lets face it, being a crunchy mommy is not “normal” and like all kinds of mothering, it is not easy. Only we seem to have an up hill battle so to speak, so many other people do not know what we are talking about or why we think certain things are important. We sound crazy. […]

Declawing — For the love of the cat NO!

  While this blog is mostly about crunchy parenting, it is also about the crunchy home.  Intactivism is not just for humans in my opinion, it should extend to animals as well. Animals should be not mutilated with unnecessary surgery and amputations such as declawing and docking. This is a strong statement I am aware. I am also […]

Did your husband need a doula too?

      Everyone I know who has hired a doula for a birth has raved about the benefits. It is so common these days that I do not think I need to go into all the supportive things a doula does in a birth for the mother and baby. A new question though is now […]

Are these crunchy?

 Believe it or not I do not always have time to cook and sometimes I really, really just don’t want to. This however makes being a crunchy mommy hard at times, ok, a lot of the time. Buying organic is costly, trying to bake organic it timely with both ingredients and 4 children. Sometimes I […]

Day 156 — New to Homeschooling – Relax

How much people can learn at any moment depends on how they feel at that moment about the task and their ability to do the task. When we feel powerful and competent, we leap at difficult tasks. The difficulty does not discourage us; we think:Sooner or later, I’m going to get this. At other times […]
