Camping With A Crunchy Mama

Camping With A Crunchy Mama

My family has created a new tradition when it comes to Memorial Day…camping.  I never really grew up camping very much, or at all, so I jumped at the opportunity when my parents found a place 2o minutes away from them.  It’s a private campground in Fentress, Texas, and this was our second year to … Continue reading

Things In Threes and An Update

I was thinking about it the other day, and I am thirty-three with a three-month-old and a three-year-old.  It’s not scientific but it seemed fun to think about.  I had planned to do a post about ‘checking in’ with having a three-month-old and three-year-old, then realized I’ve got a couple of threes going on.  That has to … Continue reading

40 Week Update

I have hit and officially passed my ‘due’ date on Tuesday, the 24th, and am still going strong.  I feel bad not posting as much as I would like lately, but the end of this pregnancy has been wearing me out.  I still have several posts I want to write about (baby-related), like cloth diapering, elimination communication, home … Continue reading

Placenta Encapsulation

It’s about to get crunchy up in hur…so bear with me.  Don’t worry, I promise not to show actual pictures. I know you’re probably thinking, ‘Please tell me you’re not about to talk about eating your placenta, are you?’  ‘That’s disgusting!’  I know, I know, I was there just a short while ago, but I have … Continue reading
