    Crunchy Mom Baby Registry

    When you’re pregnant, it’s a bit overwhelming to make a baby registry, especially with all the ever-changing options out there. I’ve had five babies and now that I’m pregnant with our sixth, I knew exactly what I wanted for this sweet little soul in my belly. This is going to be short and sweet because baby registries should all be both of those. I’ve learned that with babies come lots of “things” and less is more.

    Nontoxic Interior Paint Options + Moodboards For Our New Home

    When I decided to live a more non-toxic lifestyle, I started by majoring in the majors in minoring in the minors. I knew that this was going to be a long journey and if I wanted to do it then I was going to have to be happy with every change that I could make no matter how big or small. Shifting to a more non-toxic lifestyle is definitely not something that I would suggest for anyone to try and do all at once. Non-toxic living is something that I learn more and more about every single day and is a way that you can work to reduce the amount…

    Nap Time Tips From A Crunchy Mom of Five

    This post is in partner with Lovevery. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please read their disclaimer page for more information. Five kids and many years of trying all the things has given me lots of insight on getting your toddlers to nap. Sometimes that nap struggle is so overwhelming and has left me feeling really confused as what to do. Why is it so hard to get a child to willingly take a nap?
