Hello, my name is Angie and I am awesome. I married an awesome guy, we had awesome kids, and we enjoy awesome things. *smile* Thats me in a nutshell. I have latina roots, I love my family, I love to craft and cook and love a good DIY project. I’m kind of sarcastic, but don’t worry, it will grow on you.
I believe in teaching my children that they can do anything, one small voice can change the world. I wouldn’t consider myself a “crunchy” mom, but I do have many “crunchy” values. Does that make me soggy?
I breastfeed my babies and I believe in child lead weaning. I make my own baby food because it is just better. Tastier, easier, no added ingredients or preservatives. It’s also cheaper!
I am not an organic nazi, but I believe that organic is best. Think about it this way, would you rather give your child a veggie that was genetically modified and bathed in pesticides, then picked unripe to look pretty when it arrived in the store? Or would you rather pay perhaps a tiny bit more and know that there was no fiddling with the genetic makeup of the plant, it was given minimal or no pesticides and it was *gasp* picked when it was ripe?
I like to think the answer is simple, but there are so many differing opinions, false facts being thrown around from both sides, I understand that it is hard to decide. That’s why it is important to educate ourselves on what we are buying with our hard earned money. What we are putting into our bodies, our children’s bodies, it matters.
Our family is slowly replacing several things in our home with greener choices. Food, cleaners, toys, it’s amazing what you learn when you dedicate the time.
I also have to say that I do not look down on anyone. Ever. I don’t think I am any better than any body else in this world because I choose to buy this instead of that. How silly is that? Why should my choices or your choices make any one of us better than the other? The world is a beautiful place because of diversity.
We are not vegetarians or vegans. We have no desire to be either. I think that meat and dairy are healthy pieces of the puzzle. Our puzzle. Perhaps not yours. But please don’t tell me I am evil for eating meat. I’m not. And you telling me that does not make me want to be like you. It just makes me want to eat bacon in front of you.
