Where Whine Meets Wine

Blog Party!

on April 18, 2011

What a fun way to get to know other bloggers, their lifestyles, their thoughts, and be a part of each other’s lives! I by no means claim to be an ultra blogger, but… I think this is just too great to skip out on- a Natural Parenting Blog Party, hosted by The Peaceful Housewife.

The Peaceful Housewife

And as part of the “Get To Know You”… here are some answers to some questions!
  1. How many children do you have, and how old are they? 3 kiddos! 4 yrs. old, 2 1/2 yrs. old, and 9 months!

    What a real family picture looks like

  2. Do you have a partner, or are you a single parent? I have a wonderful partner in my husband of going on 7 years
  3. What are your “hot button” parenting issues? Ignorant parenting (I believe in living life with intention, and parenting is no exception! Not caring to make an informed decision is ridiculous!), along with breastfeeding, nutrition, and many issues surrounding pregnancy and birth! Just to name a few
  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? I do things that I wouldn’t have spent time thinking about (like cloth diapers and co-sleeping, and baby wearing) before getting pregnant, but once knew motherhood was imminent, I kind of just knew I’d be doing things naturally, or as much as possible.
  5. Is there one book or person in particular that’s heavily influenced your parenting choices? I read the whole Sears library while pregnant with my first
  6. If you had to describe each of your children using only one word, what word would you use? 1st- imaginative; 2nd- sweet-hearted; 3rd- miraculous.
  7. Is there one parenting decision that you regret more than others and wish you could change? I wish I would have used cloth diapers with all of them! (we were apartment dwellers and it didn’t seem feasable)
  8. Is there an area of your parenting you wish you were better at? oh being more patient for sure!
  9. Now for the fun questions – is there one particular food or type of food that you could eat every day? hmm… probably not! I love eating (and making!) all kinds of foods and probably wouldn’t be happy settling for just one!
  10. Vanilla ice cream or chocolate? ooh vanilla! (do not like chocolate!)
  11. What’s your guilty pleasure? well, time-consuming thing I occasionally feel guilty about- time spent on the computer! If it’s just something I thoroughly enjoy it’s books! I could buy a new book every day!
  12. If you could be part of any television show, which show would it be? Ooh, I don’t know… maybe Grey’s Anatomy, but really just so I could live in Washington again (yes, I do know it’s not really filmed there, but still…). Oh I know! How I Met Your Mother. That would be fun!

    I really enjoyed reading your answers. Thank you so much for joining the blog party!

  3. Stopping by from the blog party! LOVE your comment “ignorant parenting.” What a great way to put so many things into two words. Glad to have found your blog and will be following!

  4. Hello from the blog party! SNIFF. I read Ethan’s story and it was just beautiful. Not to compare situations but I feel that God certainly gifted us with our children after a decade of infertility. It isn’t just that the children are blessings but that through them I got the blessing of believing in blessings, know what I mean?

    I had hyperemesis until 25 weeks with my twins. Especially with IVF babies I felt like a heel for not being “glowy” but that. sucked. big. time.

    So glad to meet you and looking forward to follwoing your blog!

  5. This was fun to read and the picture is great! I have just one kiddo. I read some of the Sears books when I was pregnant too. I found that the best way to parent is by using your instincts, and for us that was to attachment parent (or positive parenting, whatever term is preferable).
