I had a baby in February of 2009. It took all of a week and a half of my newborn’s life for me to conclude that the powers that be are conspiring to take all of the simple, organic fun out of raising a baby. Pay attention to this! Keep track of that! Worry and fret about every little blip that falls somewhere outside the norm OR ELSE!

Screw that! Raising a kid just can’t be that hard. Like my prenatal yoga instructor always told me while I was utterly failing at every pose that was ever invented: “Everything you need to be the perfect mother to your child is already in you.” That’s right, malpractice-suit-fearing-pediatricians!! I’m gonna go CRAZY and feed my baby when it seems like she’s hungry. 

And while I’m at it, I know that there are greener ways to bring up a baby than most mainstream sources would lead us to believe–but that don’t require living off the grid in a vegan commune (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). Thus, I hope this blog will be a place for low-maintenance and generally irreverent moms who want to share simple, inexpensive strategies for raising children whose carbon footprints will start small and stay small, even as the kiddos grow.
