So, I was thinking that the whole blog thing could be an interesting outlet for all the pent-up thoughts and rants that I seem to accumulate each day, and also a nifty way for folks to catch up on our lives (if anyone should wish to do so).
If you're reading this, I'm sure you already know me, but I am Jamie, wife to Paul, and mama to Jonah (born May 2007) and Galen (born July 2009). I have worn various hats in my time on earth thus far, but "mama" seems to fit well, and bring me more happiness than I ever would have believed possible. I am passionate (to varying degrees) about homebirth, music, family rights, breastfeeding, elimination communication, wool, natural parenting, cloth diapers, sustainable agriculture, and, probably most of all, parenting with intention and respect. I suspect that rants on any of the above are likely to follow.
