Welcome to my third blogging experience...created in order to keep my other blogs free of my crazy rantings. This space will be dedicated to the day to day trials and tribulations of motherhood and life in general...as well as the experiences that come with trying to rediscover the many basics of life that have been lost to the constant hullabaloo and cookie cutter mentality that has become the 21st century.

I am a proud mama to our first born, Gracie, who waits for us in Heaven, and her very lively little sister, Jenna. I am a semi-crunchy mama who works full time outside of the home. If you come here to read, expect to find posts related to cloth diapering, breast feeding, homemade baby food, organics, cooking and recipes, day care & working outside the home, baby wearing, natural childbirth, general fitness, general nutrition, environmental topics, etc.

Feel free to ask questions, share valuable information that you might have or share your thoughts and/or opinions. Please do not come here to attack the things that I believe or the way I live. I will respect your opinions as long as you respect mine, even if it means agreeing to disagree!! :-)

Who Knew?

I read an interesting blog post today and thought that I would pass it along for anyone interested in reading.  It's about proper 'processing' and discarding of disposable diapers.  As it turns out, a majority of U.S. parents are doing it wrong.  I never thought about it before, but it does make sense.  (When we used gDiapers, the instructions said that urine-only inserts could be composted, but they stressed over and over and over that poopy diapers must not be composted.)  Perhaps it wouldn't have really caught my eye or my interest if I didn't live 4 miles from a large landfill...  One of the comments at the bottom of that post linked to another site with similar information.  Food for thought, especially in terms of soil and water contamination wherever your waste ends up...
