I see that we have some members.  I'm feeling beyond guilty that I haven't posted sooner.

I am very much crunchy in spirit, if not in all actions.  Although, it appears that my attempts at a crunchy life are going to get easier in the near future.  :)

I'm 30, married to a wonderful man that might actually manage to put up with me for the rest of our natural lives.  I have three kids, my oldest (9 y/o boy) was recently diagnosed as either high functioning autistic or Asperger's, my middle is my 6 y/o daughter who is our little gothic cheerleader, and my 4 y/o son who we're not sure but what he's also either Aspy, severely adhd, or possibly bipolar.  Add to their health/special needs, we have MY stuff.  I have been diagnosed with adult adhd, ptsd, asthma, chronic migraines, fibromyalgia and endometriosis, among other things.  So, with all of these health issues, adding as few chemicals to our bodies as possible is important to me.

We are also a pagan family.  Well, at least my husband and I are.  I'm trying to teach my children about my path as best I can, but my parents live with us as well, and my mother is not the most accomidating of things she doesn't agree with.  Again, it looks as tho that may be fixed in the near future.

I firmly believe in attachment parenting, not spanking, and living as eco-consciously as possible.  I prefer natural treatments for our health if at all possible, but am still relying on traditional Western medicine for the moment, until we can start making the needed changes.

I'd love to meet other moms who have similar ideals to mine.  Oh, I forgot to mention that I live near Seattle.
