Natural Parenting Blog Party

The Peaceful Housewife


I am excited to participate in this Natural Parenting Blog Party!  I am looking forward to connecting with more like-minded mamas, learning and sharing.

 
  1. How many children do you have, and how old are they?
3 kiddos... 4, 2 & 4 months

2.  Do you have a partner, or are you a single parent?

I am married to the man of my dreams:)

3.  What are your “hot button” parenting issues?

I personally think that everyone has a choice to raise their kids how they want to.  So no, I don't judge or get "hot" about much of what others do.

4.  Have you made any parenting choices that you didn’t think you would make before you were a parent, i.e. cloth diapering a child when you had previously thought it was disgusting?

Not really, I was always pretty set on what I wanted to do... But I have found myself saying things that I never thought I would, like "don't bite the couch"

5.  Is there one book or person in particular that’s heavily influenced your parenting choices?

All of Dr. Sears books during the early days.  Now I go with my gut and what I feel is right.

6.  If you had to describe each of your children using only one word, what word would you use?

Bubby Love ~ Passionate,  Buddy Boy ~ Determined,  Baby C ~ Awesome

7.Is there one parenting decision that you regret more than others and wish you could change?

Raising my voice & showing anger.

8.  Is there an area of your parenting you wish you were better at?

Having more patience!

9.  Now for the fun questions – is there one particular food or type of food that you could eat every day?

Sushi

10.  Vanilla ice cream or chocolate?

Neither... both are too plain :)

11.  What’s your guilty pleasure?

Reality TV!!  Teen Mom, Jersey Shore... Haha!  Don't Judge:)

12.If you could be part of any television show, which show would it be?

I would never be on TV.

Hahaha...My most favorite phrase that I've had to say (and never thought I'd say something like that) was "If you want a clean diaper, you're going to have to come out of the closet."

I actually have told my children to bite the couch in order to take the heat of myself :)

Looking forward to the rest of the blog party!

Hopping over from the NP blog party. Loved your answers; your family is beautiful. I too show too much anger, but I'm working through it ;)
