So the other day I was breastfeeding my cloth-diaper-wearing baby while simultaneously making baby food from veggies grown in our garden. All while wearing a dress I wove myself from organic cotton.
OK so I'm being funny. But honestly, that little scenario is not all that far from the truth. I did make zucchini bread recently using zucchini from the farmer's market and lemon juice from my backyard lemon bush. Ryan does wear cloth diapers, I do breastfeed, and I plan on making at least some of his baby food myself. Somewhere along the way I have turned into a granola mom!
I always said it would never happen. Turn into a health-nut like my mom, that is. Sorry mom, but growing up we thought it was weird! My sister, brother and I affectionately referred to the bread we used to eat as "tree-bark" bread because of its abundance of nuts and seeds.
So yes, I may have become a bit granola since having Ryan. But the choices I make are what I think is best for my family. And they make me happy.
Oh and just for the record, I have made homemade granola and it was delicious.
