1 – About This Mom

I stay at home with my kids. I do this because it makes me happy. Another thing that makes me happy is writing, so I do that too. Out family is me, a the Papa, a a boy, a girl, and a baby boy. We practice our own form of Attachment Parenting, try for Positive Discipline, are currently committed to Homeschooling, and love the concepts of Simplicity Parenting. I think about these things a lot, and so I share what I am thinking. Parenting is the biggest risk game out there, with no guarantees, so expect I might be wrong a lot of the time. But what I am doing is generally right for me and my family…

This blog is about my adventures through the labryinth of parenting, with a healthy dose of food and recipe info. I love and do some work for local farms and I write about that a lot. I like to share recipes – I believe that sharing food with someone is one of the best ways to connect and since that is impractical over the internet, I share my recipes. I am passionate about whole foods, food as medicine, herbalism, and food preservation.

I really love, love, love comments. I love respectful comments and will delete anything mean-spirited. I will do my best to respond to comments you leave here, because it’s the beginning of community.

One note on the confidentiality… This is the digital age, and if you really want to know who we are, you can find out. Or you know me in real life already and wonder why I don’t disclose our names. It’s because the kids haven’t (and really can’t) give me permission to write about them as much as I do. Keeping their names confidential may not be much, but it’s a thin veil of privacy. They are their own people and until they can make the decision about their involvement I plan on keeping their names out of it.

That’s it. That’s us in a nutshell – lacking many, many of our facets and dimensions. But now you have a bit of an idea…

  1. I think it is very good and cool of you to not disclose any too personal information. You want to keep your kids and your entire family safe; and that what makes a wonderful mom. I read your post “Princess-Boys & Hero-Girls” and I was totally fascinated by how you have come through and WANT people to know about it. I think it is amazing how you think. It makes me want to spend a day with your family to see what it’s like. xoxo

  2. Hello! I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. Here is my post nominating you, I hope you have fun with it. Congratulations! 🙂

    • I will do my best to play this game with you, but I have little enough time to write all the many posts that bounce around in my head! Thank you for the consideration.
