    Wow so good to meet someone who thinks that reading labels and minimizing chemicals in everyday life is just “common sense” too ;)

    You are so right about the whole perspective thing. It all depends on who you talk to. Having adopted as full as I possibly can at this point natural lifestyle, I no longer today worry what anyone else thinks of it, even if some people think it is “extreme”. To me it is not extreme at all, but a smart way to get pro-active about one’s health. So I applaud you too for the choices you are making! They will go a long way for you and your family, especially that you have a new life that you are bringing into this world.

    I am glad you liked the book. I definitely recommend it for everyone who is interested at least a bit in their health or curious about how much of an impact our chemical world really has on us. And thank you for the link.

    don’t forget flame retardant children’s sleepwear. as long as the child is in close-fitting 100% cotton, flame retardant is not required by law. not to even mention how icky flame retardant polyester is.

    Ay, this is such a huge, huge topic!
    I laughed reading your first paragraph because I was definitely la loca in my family for having nursed my girl for a year, co-slept for 6 months and attempted to cloth diaper her (that didnĀ“t last long), amongst many, many other “hippie Californian” decisions I continue to make. Funny thing, is I became obsessed with vegetarianism, organics, toxins, an alternative lifestyle, etc years ago when I lived in Mexico.

    I’m actually waiting for my copy to review and now I can’t wait to read it! I just need a little bit of an extra push to get me going with the organic garden I’ve been wanting to start. here we go……

    Evita, I love your site. Thank you for the comment.
    Ro, great reminder. I didn’t get all that until Maria was a toddler.

    And, Ana…this is why I love you! Somos iguales. Enjoy the book. It is eye-opening!

    Marcela, yup, the microwave popcorn freaked me out too. I don’t eat it much, but keep it around for quickie snacks and I do love it too.

    Nice to meet another crunchy mami! We need to stick together.
