A little about me:
My name is Amanda. I am a 33-year-old mama of three crazy kids, Munchkin (Connor) who is 5.5 years old and Peanut (Logan) who is 3.5 years old and my Little Bird (Lyla) who is 8 months. I am on the crunchy side and proud of it. I often get strange looks from people, including my husband. My husband really has been wonderfully supportive despite all of my eccentricities. My sister, Kim, also lives with us. It’s really great having her here. She shares my parenting views and although we fight like, well, sisters, she is one of my best friends.
Breastfeeding, bed sharing, babywearing,cloth diapering, leaving our children intact, gentle discipline, healthy eating, enjoyment of the outdoors(when the weather is nice) and homeschooling are all part of our parenting plan.
We also share our home with a few pets. Sawyer is a six year old mutt. He can be a little grumpy and is an escape artist, but he is a great watch dog. Charlie is probably around a year and a half old. He is a terrier mix who adopted us seven months ago. Connor is quite attached and has dubbed him his dog. Isis a six year old white cat. She is kind of a princess, but we love her. Dragon is a year and a half. He is Connor’s cat. We went to look at a litter of kittens last year and he is the one who wasn’t intimidated by Connor’s energy. Garfield is Kim’s cat. He is a year old and was a bottle baby Kim raised. He is spoiled and kind f strange, but we love him.
We have a slew of chickens roaming the backyard. I love to watch them. They are pretty comical. We have a few that we can pick up snuggle. Of course fresh eggs are fantastic 🙂
