So, you hear that term “crunchy” again, and you’re wondering what exactly it means? Well, Urban Dictionary defines a crunchy mom as a
“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.”
I’m a self-proclaimed earth-loving, organic-eating mama myself, and I’ll proudly share the “crunchy” title with all of the other amazing mamas out there who believe in natural living!
Want to find out if you’re crunchy too, and have a little laugh while you’re at it? Check out these other crunchy mom blogger’s ideas of what it means to be a crunchy mom!
