Granola anyone?

So today I received an email from a reader asking me if I was a “crunchy mama.”  I blinked a couple times and re-read the question, completely perplexed.  Nope- it still said CRUNCHY.  Then I went through every possible variation of words that she could have MEANT to say…it had to be a typo.  I came up with nothing.  I read the question again and all I could muster was “WTF?!”  And moved on to the next email.

However, my brain kept going back to the whole ‘crunchy’ thing and I decided to look it up.  I have never in my life heard of that term before- but my goodness- it exists… turns out I am the fool- not the lady who asked the question. I guess there is a first for everything 😉 haha

It turns out a Crunchy Mommy is a mom who is in to natural, organic, holistic, environmentally friendly eco-living.

I even found the following definition at–

Mother who supports homebirth, breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, gentle discipline, etc. One who questions established medical authority; tends to be vegetarian and/or prepare all-organic foods.

So, there you have it folks.  Crunchy mommas are a real thing.

And to answer her question- I’m a wanna-be crunch mommy 🙂 I am way too big of a chicken for a homebirth- however, I think women who choose it are rockstars.  And… there is no way I could ever be a vegetarian- I am a meat and potatoes kind of girl- but since getting pregnant, I have definitely been trying to eat organic and shop at whole foods stores more.  Trader Joes is one of my faves.

And to further my amazement- there is actually a quiz that you can take to determine one’s level of CRUNCHINESS!  Y’all have to check it out!
