Michael has informed me that his coworkers think I'm a hippie. Here is what they know about me :
1. I am very determined to have an unmediated birth. I have even switched doctors in order to give myself a better chance at it.
2. We are going to cloth diaper.
3. They also probably know that we recycle and try to compost.
So, I see where they are coming from. People especially are shocked by the cloth diapers. However, I don't really see it as hippie, but rather being an old school mom. I enjoy the simple life and want to do the same with my parenting. I plan to use glass bottles and make my own baby food too. While these things are not the most convenient, they feel right to me. I'm sure I will get lazy and slap in a disposable diaper at times, or buy some jars of pre-made baby food, and that's ok. But who knows I may also get Michael to put a clothes line in our backyard or take the "hippiness" to another level in some way.
It also probably doesn't help that they haven't really spent time with me, I don't know many hippies with as many clothes as me. :)
Anyone else been called a hippie? What old school mom/dad stuff do you do, or think you will do?
