Hello again! I’m back from my hibernation…Nope, I wasn’t living in a cave, snoozing away, but having a wee, precious baby boy! Just getting settled and learning how to live with a newborn again. He is another wonderful reason to learn even more about living a flourishing and wholesome life.
Over the years of adventuring on this health road, I have had the opportunity of overhearing some pretty cute comments from my children. And so it made me think, what makes a crunchy mama and therefore crunchy kids. Here are some things I have experienced with my little ones that made me think of this phrase:
You may be a crunchy mama if…
…your child doesn’t think it strange if you ask her to grate a raw potato for your breast when having a bout of mastitis.
…your children ask when their next appointment at the chiropractor is.
…you overhear your children playing with a police Lego set and while setting up the jail, they say: “OK, to help these guys get their life back in order, we’ll put in a Bible, kombucha and sourdough…”
…hearing your child say: “What? Mommy put white sugar in the trolley?! (pause) Oh! She must be making kombucha.”
…homeopathic remedies, coconut sugar and kefir are sprinkled in their conversations.
…the stain on your child’s pyjamas are from when she was brushing with charcoal.
…you hear, “Daddy! The Berkey needs refilled.”
…when your puppy accidentally tramples on stinging nettles, your children ask, “Is there an essential oil for this?”
…your six old shouts out: “Behold! The aisle of toxic!” when passing a processed food aisle at the grocery store.
And you just may be a crunchy mama if…
…your baby has more amber jewellery than you do!
OK! Hope you had fun with these wee remarks! I would love to hear any kooky comments you’ve heard kids say along these lines!
And I will be getting back into the swing of things with some fun, new posts!
Go eat something crunchy!
