Well, as it turns out I might be crunchy after all. I was recently reading a discussion on Mybestbirth.com about whether or not a person who has a homebirth is crunchy or a hippie. I had honestly never thought about myself as a hippie until that thread.
What exactly is a hippie? I mean when I think of a hippie I think of unwashed masses at Woodstock, I know I'm not that. But at the same time, I did have my baby at home by candlelight, I drive a Prius, I wear my baby rather than use a stroller, I also like granola. Do these things make me a hippie?
I guess if thinking rather than following the mainstream blindly makes me a hippie than maybe I now have an excuse to give up shaving. It would save me so much time in the shower! Or do hippie not shower either? Any ways, yes I think for myself. Yes, I have given the medical establishment the finger on occasion, like having my baby at home and refusing to follow their vaccination schedule. Yes I proudly drive a Prius. Yes, I wear my baby. Just call me Miss Granola Sunshine and maybe don't stand so close in case I decided to be a super hippie that day.
