I got so offended by people saying “crunchy” parents were nuts or weird. That is until the experience that made it dawn on me, and made me blue.

There’s a million things I swore I’d never do once we had kids, most of which I now laugh about. Some things we stick to our guns on and some are still very important to us. Some went out the window faster than my days of getting 8 solid hours of sleep.
