Even though I am now a bonified au natural chick with exclusive breastfeeding, cloth diapering and about to embark on making my own baby food, I am still a bit far from being a full-fledged hippie. "I feel like a natural woman..."
Yes, I did happen to have a completely natural, drug-free birth, but that was not by choice. I'm for epidurals all the way! I do tend to wear sensible shoes a lot more these days, but I still wear a bra, put on makeup and shave my legs, armpits and bikini region. I do not wear patchouli but wear a very nice perfume from Benefit called B Spot. I paint my toenails and fingernails and workout at the gym. I also listen to rap music in addition to my folk music thank you very much.
I've co-slept, baby-wore and chose all BPA free products, but I've also used the cry it out and Baby Wise methods. I've dabbled in homeschooling, but I'm not committed to it. If I had some extra money, I would totally put my kids in an expensive Montessori school. I would LOVE to have 'someone else raise my kids.' Anyone work for free?
So there, that proves it, I am not a real hippie - yet. Now where did I put my peace pipe? I'm late for my drum circle...
