Be Real: A Crunchy Confession - The Snap Mom

Be Real: A Crunchy Confession

I often feel pressure to be the best natural, organic, hippie, granola-mama I can be. Whether it’s self-imposed or not, I feel it. If I can’t do it all and be it all, how could I possibly share with The Snap Mom audience about natural living??? But what I’ve concluded is this: no one can be perfect, and more importantly no one can relate to a perfect person.

Whitney J dropped some jaws with her formula confession and it’s time I let some cats out of the bag.

So here is my crunchy confession:

1. I don’t cloth diaper. I can’t even wash my own underwear some weeks let alone a whole stash of cloth. I am in awe of Whitney’s dedication to cloth and have tried it over a dozen times but it’s always a fail for me.

2. We love to eat healthy but that doesn’t mean we are not fans of Chic-Fil-A. Come on – that’s some tasty chicken! I know – GMO, MSG and high fructose corn syrup, but it happens and I enjoy it.

3. I use Secret deodorant. Guess it’s a secret no more. I have bought every natural brand on the market and I still STINK. Not all the natural crystals of India can handle what chasing 2 kids does to me throughout the day. I’ve also tried many DIY recipes (that work great for others) and the hubby has gently let me know – they aren’t cuttin it either!

So there we have it.
A few facts that hopefully didn’t crush your perception of me. Whitney J and I strive to help other mamas and we NEVER want to appear better than anyone. We are all on a journey and it looks different for each person. I get a little high strung about doing it “right” and sometimes that’s not what is best for my family and myself.

Love and peace,
