ok, i am trying to attend ultimate blog party 2009 that is being hosted by 5 minutes for mom. i am new to this so i hope i am doing it right. i believe the idea is to get some traffic to your blog and to enjoy checking out other blogs and, through the whole experience, to maybe “meet” some like minded bloggers.
so, here i am. woowoo mama. i am a sahm to the bean who is almost three and chickpea who is almost 8 months. i practice attachment parenting and i am also big into woowoo. what is woowoo? well, it is a silly name that came to stand for some of the spiritual stuff i am interested in and sustained by. if you are reading this and you are a mom and you are interested in things like, shamanic journeying, telepathic animal communication, and the likes then puh-lease leave me a note. in my travels around the webdom i have seen a lot of wonderful christian mama’s and i have a lot of respect for them and their work but i have not seen a lot of mama’s who are writing about more “alternative” (for lack of a better word) spirituality. it is getting a little lonely.
i am raising my kids following my heart which happens to fall in line with attachment parenting. my son is spirited and my daughter seems less so and between them and my own neurosis things can get a little overwhelming. i tend to think out loud, ramble on way too much, and try to problem solve through my blogging. so, if you have the time or energy to read a lot about a little then you are in the right place.
what i do share is spiritual advice, my journeys (continued), my chats with animals and more, my theories on parenting, some stuff that is kind of like a poem, and pictures. plus, an obsession with babywearing and cloth diapers. oh, and i almost forgot to mention i love to cook. so i like to link to recipes and share some too.
i just started my blog a few months ago but i have vowed to put up at least one post a day for a year. so far, so good.
today it is friday and my lovely post man delivered me so fluff so i am happy. friday’s are good. the bean had his first appointment with an acupuncturist today to help him deal with stress. and he did really well. and in the mail i got my new lavendel silk ellipsen and also a new to me RW soaker with two cute matching dresses for the pea. and as much i love the support of the spirit world, and being green, and not being attached to stuff, i would be lying if i told you that these pieces of cloth do not bring me great joy.
if the didymos looks good to you i have to tell you it is a million times more beautiful in real life. a deep blueberry blue with purple undertones on the cotton side and iridescent lavendar on the silk side and it is making me all giddy just describing it. when the pea wakes up and i get to try it i will be so happy. when the diapers are out of the laundry and this puppy gets its first bath i will be thrilled. if your eyes are closing with boredom i am sorry. i have ruined the party!
do any of you read dooce? i have to read it because she makes me laugh (although she may not be family friendly at all times and i have no idea if she is ap but i don’t think so). anyway, her header this month says “lame” and i was just thinking that might have been a better title for this blog post!
lamest party post ever.
well, in honor of my lame post and my new wrap i think i’ll go put a bottle of white wine in the fridge. and start making some pizza dough for dinner.
if you hung in through all this then thank you a million. here is a balloon. it is blue. i like blue.
peace love joy and woowoo.
