Did I grab your attention? I know, born this way, is a new Lady GaGa song or the name of her album or something of that nature...but I'm curious about a non-gaga topic.
Were you born into a crunchy or natural living household? Were your parents peace loving John Lennon fans or were they anything but? I want to know specifically, is there anyone you credit for your natural ways?
I came from a pretty normal set of parents, nothing fancy, in fact I don't remember us having most of the modern new-fangled conveniences most other families at the time had but if my parents could have afforded them we might have. My mom was a lactation advocate and LaLeche League Leader. I nursed until about age four, maybe beyond. I was cloth diapered but had they been able to afford it they might have used disposables. I'd say my parents were "hippie-ish" but not super natural, and less and less natural as I grew older.
I give my mom credit for my breastfeeding ways, because of my upbringing there were just no other alternatives to breastfeeding on my radar. My mother never suggested cloth diapers to me, my parents never recycled, never grew their own food or bought organic. We weren't a soda and Fruit Loops cereal household either but there were no real strides taken to lead a natural lifestyle.
So with this I wonder, were you raised by crunchy parents? Were they into natural living at all? And if not, how do you think the growing popularity of the "green movement" in today's society will impact our children and their children? Surely they'll be a few shades greener then we are because of it.
I'd love to read your thoughts and who you credit, if anyone, for your natural ways!
