Natural Births in the US have Long been forgotten for the usual and routine Cesarean section and Medicated birth within the hospitals.. And yet we are not looking at something that may be in our faces.. What about all these new illnesses? The cause of autism.. the cause of allergies... And yet we sit here and just scratch our heads and say oh it genetic.... I think not.. I will make my example
Child 1: Born April 2007 .. Natural vaginal birth with the assistance of an epidural and an epsiotomy .. Patient was given pitocin and antibiotics for GBS .. After the birth child was formula fed due to moms choice. Baby later suffered from Atopic dermatitis and is allergic to eggs, milk and other foods as well as having PND and Seasonal allergies. Child is on 3 medications daily for her allergies and asthma.
Child 2: Born July 2009. Natural vaginal birth with the assistance of epidural and had a tear.. Patient was given Pitocin and Antibiotics for GBS . Child was born at 36 weeks gestation.. Baby was breastfed by choice and also later suffered from Atopic Dermatitis and is allergic to eggs and milk and other foods. Child has Asthma and Eczema and Other issues.. He is currently on 6 medications for allergies, eczema, asthma , and food allergies. Patient had hospitalization at 12 mo from failure to thrive. Child has had two surgeries.
Child 3: Born natural vaginal birth. no complications during birth, mother was on bed rest for 34 weeks and was given pain meds , p17 shots and procardia . no medication given to mother during labor, Pitocin was given after birth for bleeding. Child was given to mother and not removed from room. Child has no allergies or food sensitivities . Baby has been breastfed past the first year...
Now look at the outcome .. Three births.. All vaginal births.. what gives.. why were there more complications with the medicated births.. Why the medical issues for the children later... Now notice the last birth.. no complications with the birth.. and now look at the lack of food allergies and eczema....
Mother has had history of all of these conditions. Mother also was a medicated birth with the help of forceps and was formula fed. Mother was small for gestation with eczema and other health issues.. Father was born with the same sensitivities and issues.. ..
Now lets fill in the blanks .. let look at the statistics.. lets make birth go back to the norm... Lets see how many things would drop off if only a mother choose a natural birth and then look at the past.. maybe we will see healthier children.. this will be continued.. because i think there is more to this..

I don't agree with formula... In fact i hate the stuff... My daughter had so many problems because of it.. My son was put onto it because he was "sick" .. But you know what gets me ... Making the excuse for not trying breastfeeding!! I understand there is mothers out there that HAVE to have it.. I am not mad at them.. They have to use it because they cannot otherwise breastfeed.. I wish i could donate milk to them or they could find a donor !!! I hate whats in the stuff.. Its SUGAR!!!!!! no wonder i am Fat.. I was a formula baby!!!
I hate cribs!!! I despise them!!! I hate strollers!! I didn't know how easy life was until i didn't have to lug around that heavy thing around!!!
I am a breastfeeding mother... breasts do not offend me.. I bet they do you and to that i am going to say:
BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS , breastfeeding!!!! breastfeeding!! Baby breastfeeding!! Uncovered breastfeeding!!
Do you get it.. its normal!!??
I chose not to cut my sons doodle.. I despise circumcision!!! I hate it it is torture!!! My son is scarred from a botched one!!! So i naturally would tell any mother not to circumcise their sons!!! It is wrong.. so wrong
Have i offended you yet??
so now you know eh??

You will be three in two days!! I cannot believe how time flies. I am ssure you will get whatever you want on your brithday!!! I am thrilled to see how much of a little man you are becoming. I wanted to write this to you because i feel like i took away something that should have never went away.. I regret it and i hope one day you will forgive me. I remember the day you where born... how perfect you where! I know you where early but i was amazed on how wonderful you where and how warm and cuddly you where. I was told by your doctor that you had something wrong with your little boy parts that would later have to be fixed.. Little did i know that you where in for ... At 6 months i sent you in to fix the problem with your boy parts.. what they did to you was not my plan.. The cut you and then left you open.. you would cry everytime you went pee and when you slept you would whimper from the pain.. I understand that i could have stopped that!! I could have saved you from the pain... But i was not fast enough.. now three years later i sit and look at you when i change your diaper and see that things are not right.. they didnt do it right.. you will have to have surgery... I AM SOOO SORRY!!! ... I want you to know you are perfect to me !! I love you little man!!!
You saved your little brother you know... you are my hero!!! I now know it is never ok to take someones pride away.. like i took yours.. but now i know.. know i know and i am sorry
I love you

Well this will be the last time i let my fiancé go to the store!!! I let him go thinking, maybe just maybe he knows what i want the kids to eat and he knows what i like. He returned home with junk food!!! I was crushed! What store did you go to? Does this man not know what the canned chili does to me? He bought the ground beef in a tube!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!! I calmed down and started putting up the items that would on a regular basis, make me sit all day on the potty!! Normally my basket is filled with whole wheat bread and organic grain fed chicken... not some poor animal hacked to death!! I smiled at him making him feel like he did great, knowing if i was mean i would upset him. See part of changing a house over from processed to clean is the opposite party that does not care any other way doesn’t even keep up!! Two days later I am back in the bathroom crying because all the fats and oil is making my IBS worse. I have been rid of the pesky runs and gas for awhile only for it to come back!!! I know I rant on and on about eating raw foods and veggies and how good it is for you.. I wish people would see how wonderful this stuff tastes.. I am truly addicted.!! well enough of that.. i am going back to my salad and window gazing!!

I love being asked questions about how i feel about natural birth and the wonders of breastfeeding. I was in a article here in town about nursing in public during the Target nurse in.. how else can i speak about this new found love? I love how i have bonded with my three children! I admit we are still working on the organic eating and the clean eating aspect as daddy doesn't help when he brings home junk food!! Let me make one thing straight.. I will not be a mainstream, trendy mother. I prefer to live my life in a simple cotton tee shirt and a pair of maternity/blue jeans! I do have a few things in my house many crunchy moms do not have. But i love the ideas and ways these mothers live .. I plan to take it a step farther soon.. Maybe learning to live off the land instead of buying foods? making my kids clothes? Who knows but i cant seem to think of anything else to write about but this!!
anyways till next time!!

I have thought about how fast time goes and the little things that i should have enjoyed with one child, i didn't enjoy with the other. I know that my delay in writing was because i have never had time to think , much less write .. I was pausing for awhile to enjoy the small things!! It is weird almost to look back and think i went through some of the most extraordinary things the last few years and i haven't wrote about them.. I think that i am on the writers block road!!! Mind you what doesn't help a lot of the time is the fact my 9 month old screams when i am not around. Will Calling Motherhood become a helpless rant about how being a mother is ?
I know a lot of people that actually know me know how i live my life. Most of it revolves around the kids. I wake up feed them and clothe them for the day and allow them to run around my house, build tents and pretend they are rulers of fairy land!! No really i do! My daughter loves to pretend!! I love it that my child has imaginary friends and that my son pretends that he is on a race track on his cars ride on toy!! I love that my kids are normal!! I have done nothing but devote my time a research into making sure i am doing best for them and then shrugging off the things that do not matter! I think life is what you make it. Don't make it any harder for yourselves !
enough ranting for one day!!! until next time

Until it storms!!!

I have started a journey the last few years that I won't ever forget!! I also had the chance to show my support for breastfeeding mothers with the target nurse in.. I feel mom enough... I feel like my children have a bond with me that will never go away.
Now that I am part of the greatest debate ever.. I see that I have a lot of work to do! From nursing in public to supporting those around me! I see that this will take awhile.. Why ? Because close minded people live in this country and refuse to change..
Now will the media please come forward... Will they ask me the truth behind my feelings on this.. I plan to do my own version of the mom enough picture.. Maybe show support to all those moms who don't feel it!! It's a hard job.. It make for long hours and all nighters ..
I am mom enough!!!

I know that the weeks have ticked by and not one day is the same.. from learning about how the sky is big and the clouds are marsh mellows.. well that is according to my sweet 5 year old girl.. I am amazed on how much she knows.. I am amazed in a way i cant describe!! How can one little person enter this world and then grow and blow me away!! I haven't ever just talked about 1 of my kids in ages.. Can you imagine what i will learn with three!!
5 years ago, April 5th i welcomed my sweet baby girl into this world.. I was scared and worried , how am i going to teach you if i don't even know how to make it by myself, i am a kid too! I soon learned that even if i messed up that little face still showed love .. I admit i am not the worlds greatest mother, nor do i do trendy up to date things!!! I like to think that my daughter will forgive me if i am not the worlds coolest mother either.. I want her to know that if she needs something always ask and i will do my best to give.. well advice mostly.. I am way to broke for the 50 dollar barking puppy she wants.. wait... never mind we got her one of those except it does a lot more than barks. I love it how she tells me that meatballs taste like meatballs and that she has a magically pony named diamond and many other magical friends. I love how she tells me more about weather and tells me i am wrong!! I love it how she just smiles and tells me it will be OK even if i am not in the mood.. I know that is why God made kids the way he did.. maybe because we hadn't learned the greatest thing. Love.. yes that 4 letter word that people misuse and abuse .. Love the absence of hate and hurt... the one thing that until you have a child you wont truly know... I am still learning about the world.. I learn it through the laughs and smiles and conversations about the mailman and the snails ... i am 23 years old and i will tell you this.. if some of the people would sit and listen to children they would learn that with anything .. take it a day at a time and dig in the dirt just a little more!!

Imagine it is 1901.. You live on a quaint little farm out in the country. You have chickens and cows and pigs. When it came time you would find the choice animal to kill and use it for meat. You would cut off the meat and then throw out the bits of bone and intestines because they are not favorable. Imagine the smell of the meat cooking and how good it was..
Ok lets fast forward to now ... 2012
Let us imagine a large set of land with thousand of cows on it, all of them are injected with antibiotics.Most are standing ankle deep in their own feces.. most of them are fed a grain,bone and vitamin mix. Now it is time to kill the cow which has been forced to become that large.. It goes into a processing house. In there the same thing happens . They cut up the cow and put aside the bits and bones that we normally would not eat.. They grind it and strain it and put fillers in it..
E Hows definition of fillers:

I have taken a long break from writing and making a life here in the new city I moved to. Mind you it is nothing like Dallas by any sense! I have enjoyed looking at what possibilities I have now that I didn’t before. Out here the air is cleaner and I feel like my goal of getting rid of all the toxins in my house is going to happen, one change at a time. I feel like I am somewhere now where I can see how it is not to live by someone else’s standards other than my own. I think I have lost touch with the world I had before and look at my life now and smile… I made it!! I got past the hard spots that where holding me down and now with this new freedom I can sit and write and make what I wanted to create and maybe become the person that well, Can be herself
Ok enough of that. It is time for me to get things back to the fun … not so boring details!!!
