One mom's plan to raise a kid — without raising greenhouse gases

Food For Thought

I feel that, if anything, pregnancy has made me terribly picky, and my diet increasingly monotonous.


Another Kind of Baby Shower

The Blessingway is a nice way to round out the “shower” experience for mom, and presents an opportunity for her nearest and dearest to offer more than just material support.

I have some pretty strong convictions about the quality of things my child will be exposed to... ironically, most baby products are made with some of the more toxic materials out there: cotton, synthetic fabrics, and plastic.


What Happens When You’re Making Other Plans...

Now, while it is my intention to give birth naturally, without the use of medical intervention, and hopefully in water, I don’t technically have a birth plan. I’ve never done this before, so how am I to know what I’ll want?
