Chiromom, Crunchie Momma


A Chiropractor's wife, mom of 2, working with a child in tow, passionate about bedsharing, healthy eating (Gluten Free- Corn Free), extended nursing, and all things that make people call me a crazy hippie. Sould I have named this "Hippie Mom"? Honest, maybe funny, certainly passionate! Advice, rantings, and an honest opinion. Children's books coming out this spring 2012!

Making cucumber salad with my 5 yr old.  He has his own special chef knife.  My 2 yr old had a small child safe knife too.  We used a light dressing and touch of salt. Simple and  delicious.  When I want my kids to try something or eat healthier, I head to the the kitchen to cook or prepare foods with them.

What’s that STINK?!

Let’s talk deodorant.  Yup.  I use something that I order online.  Works great, no aluminum.  Wonderful.  Here it is http://www.mionegroup.com/en/product/13302.  I was tired of ordering it online…. so I went to the store the other day and found a natural deodorant and gave it a whirl.  I didn’t use it on the day of an important meeting.  I did however use it on a day when I was completely exhausted from a gluten exposure, moody, depressed, and just a mess.  Whatever I figured.

I put it on.

I begged a friend to come over to play with my daughter so I could get some work done.  My gluten-fogged brain wasn’t working so well.  She came and left an hour later- work done and I was relieved and thankful.

My son came home from school and sat next to me.  “PEEEEUUUU!  WHAT IS THAT TERRIBLE SMELL?” my 5 yr old asked me.  I said I don’t know what is it???  He smells me and goes, “OH MY GOD. YOU STINK!"  I do??????  I smelled. OH MY YES, I did! 

Now I hear all those people against natural deodorants saying, “Well that’s what you get crunchie hippie!”  Well I USUALLY don’t smell with my regular one,… do I? GULP.

My husband came in for dinner in between patients and I told him that I smelled so bad.  He said, “Your friend was here and she smelled up the whole house!!!”  I said, “IT WAS ME!”  He said I didn’t smell. That’s because I RAN UP AND SHOWERED and used my regular natural deodorant. 

Problem fixed.  I texted my friend to apologize for my STINK.  I didn’t hear back.  She might be dead from oxygen deprivation right about now.  I’m sure of it.

That door! Always gets them.

I watch children come into my husband’s chiropractic office each day. It never fails that they want to know what is behind that door (the door we enter the office from). They might see the couch or cat or something… but they look and try to get there. I got to thinking that they are probably coming up with all kinds of fun ideas for what is behind that door. So I wrote a kid’s book about it. Now to get an illustrator to do it justice! Fun!
