Truth be told, I actually left the mainstream a long time ago.  This blog would be more appropriately titled, Left the Mainstream, since it’s not a matter of me leaving; I’m gone.  I am, however, surrounded by mainstream parents.  It seems that they are they only type inhabiting my small town.  And it’s not just the parents that are mainstream, it’s the entire population.  To say that I am a little different than the average citizen of this little town is an understatement.  Hence, the creation of this blog.  I needed a place to speak out.  I needed somewhere to talk about  my ideas and, hopefully, have people with similar ideas and beliefs talk back.  I was tired of speaking but never being heard and so here is my answer, a blog.  Here is my warning to anybody who may stumble upon this blog: I am opinionated.  I don’t mind a debate. Actually, I thrive on debates.  I love to think, to learn and to discuss and an educated debate fosters all three of these.  I am moody and I am a mother which means that I am sleep-deprived and that can make for silly grammar or spelling mistakes or late-night rants.  And I am crunchy.  I love to do things a little differently than most and I am not afraid to admit it.  I don’t use shampoo, I buy my clothes at secondhand stores, I dry my laundry on a clothesline, I wear my baby in a sling, and about a hundred other things that may make you gasp.  If you aren’t down with any of these things, that’s fine, you’re free to read my blog anyways and you might even learn something or turn a little crunchy yourself.  Hey, a girl can dream.  I hope you enjoy the blog and please share it with others if you do. Peace <3.

  1. Love it! I’m glad you started a blog and I look forward to reading about the non-mainstream! I’m in a unique position where I’m mostly non mainstream in thought and action but fake it on the outside to a certain extent so future patients / current clients will feel more at ease with me 😉 then I slip little tidbits of information to them under the radar. Slowly but surely, we will infiltrate! Looking forward to reading more!

    • Thanks for following along and I hope you enjoy my future posts! 🙂 I can relate to having to “act” mainstream. I used to work in a natural health centre before becoming a mama and you don’t want to seem too different and scare them all away.

  2. I’d consider myself slightly crunchier than mainstream. I’m not a fan of debate. I am definitely open to and interested in others parenting process and ideas. I’m looking forward to reading more!
