Sorry, we know the meme is dead, but I think it’s a zombie meme, even more awesome after it’s been overdone.

I want to marry one of these Crunchy Mamas…save me a lot of reading about crazy health stuff, get crazy healthy happy child, bam.

Bonus: Coolest Dad Ever. Written by natural mamas just like YOU. Inspired by “Shit Girls Say” and “Shit New Age Girls Say.”

    Haha, some things never change. I was raised by a natural (grand)ma. I totally got chickenpox at a chickenpox party! No kids for me though – it's a full time job raising a kid well, and there are about a zillion other things I want to do with my time on this earth. But kudos to those parents who make the time and take the effort to do it right and raise healthy kids – I'm so grateful to have been brought up this way!

  2. OMG this is awesome! Although, no self respecting crunchy mama would be relegated to pumping or breast feeding in a bathroom stall…I once breastfed Finn in the stands at a Rockies game. Spir-u-lina!

    Who up-voted that crap?

  6. Starre Vartan says:

    Um, ok…what’s so wring with knowing that you don’t have the skills or interest to be a good parent? I know what it takes and I’m not capable, nor is it something I want to do. How is that crap?

    We have also had (and used) the Baby Bjorn, the Moby wrap, and a sling. The Bjorn was better for when my son was 1-3 months because it is smaller than the Ergo, and now that he is 6 months old it is better for when he really wants to face forward.
