Profile Information

What does "holistic" mean to you?
Holistic means natural and back to basics living. Keeping the toxins and man-made pollutants away as much as possible. Honoring our bodies with the good stuff from nature and preserving our planet. Raising our children at home with a strong support system of family and friends and keeping a positive environment.
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
Since grade school I've studied the environment and learned how destructive man can be. I've always been interested in the theories but only recently really became a part of the solution. I began using natural cleaners, recycling more, looking at the things in my own home that contribute to pollution. I began cloth diapering and became an advocate. I started my own company and have been spreading the word on how cloth diapering benefits the environment and our babies.
a little about me
I am a 30 year old mother of 2 girls 6/03 and 11/06. I am married to the love of my life that I met as a senior in high school and he was in the Navy. We own 2 dobermans and support the doberman rescue "Broken Dobe" through FOSTERING. We have own own cloth diaper sales and consulting business Baby Booty Wear that we hope to grow and become one of the largest advocates and resources for modern family cloth diapering. We just added Juice Plus to our resources for healthy living! Awesome product! See events for Wellness Workshops!
What professional or business affiliations do you offer?
RDA business Member, HMN, Diaper Pin, CEO of BabyBooty Wear, Juice Plus Distributor

We thought we'd head to Ilios Noche on Providence Rd, about 7:30pm tomorrow for the MNO. Any chance you can join us?

I'm great, Laura! Hope all is well on your end too! Yes, still teaching yoga and I'm gearing up to homeschool starting this summer! I'm SO excited to share more time with my girls!! :) What about you? What's your plans for schooling? I tried to contact Jennifer to see if I could her to come over to my house and help me set up a montessori classroom and help get me started but her number is no longer in service and so I e-mailed her but no response from her? Do you happen to know if she's still at the same place and running Mapleseed?

I will look forward to meeting you Sunday, unless you are going to Pat's Thursday - I am planning to come with my youngest, Zachary, who is 7. Let me tell you though, that in my two hours on Sunday (the library closes at 5pm), I will start out with the legal stuff and go from there depending on who comes and what their needs are. It is very informal. I think you will find it helpful to meet other homeschoolers and hear the discussion even if it doesn't end up touching on everything. I will tell you where to go for a great overview of the various types of homeschooling. That is the basic homeschooling seminar at Growing Scholars. Those are done by Misty Spinelli and she does an excellent job. She and I have different strengths you might say. You do have to call ahead to sign up as the space is limited but it is also free. www.growingscholars.com
Let me tell you that most husbands start off very wary of the idea of homeschooling. I happened to accidentally find out about it when my oldest was 3 months old (over 20 years ago). So I had 4 or 5 years to talk my dh into it and it took most of that! haha And then he said just to 3rd or 4th grade. But by the time we got there, we never looked back. And a good thing too, with all of our moves.

I look forward to meeting you sometime soon. I will be out of town this Friday- but maybe another Friday or at an event! I am not sure yet if I am going to the event this Sat. at Pat's house. I have a 6 y/o daughter.

We homeschool and my 2.5 yr old goes to St. Luke's playschool 2 mornings a week. That gives me time to work with the older kids (8 & 6) without interruptions.

I'm glad the covers were large, everything fits him great already! Its funny, I really needed to get more covers and a few more diapers since he grew out of his prefolds..but I kept putting it off. I guess I somehow knew that you would have those imse vimse available today! :)

We'll see how we like these covers and how our other covers are working for us. At some point we might need more. How much are the covers new?

I might be interested, what sizes are these?

I do use Dr. Bronner's on my wool covers that I hand wash in the sink, mainly because it's in my soap foam dispenser already! It works fine for those and doesn't harm them at all. I have also used it for spot cleaning on covers that I'd like to reuse without sending them through an entire wash cycle. I haven't tried using it in my washing machine. I have an HE washer and I'm wary about using anything besides the HE detergent in there. I use the Tide Free.

"Interesting. I do find info about Arnica as a poison ivy relief alternative. I hadn't heard of that. Homeopathic Apis helps for swelling, hives also. Pat"

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
