    Hi I just found your blog.
    I really like it. You blog about much the same things I do. I’m adding you to my blogroll.
    Happy blogging!

    I like your blog a lot. I am interested in many of the same subjects. Our four daughters (21,17,13,10) are breastfed and homeschooled and I like the term consensual family though this is the first time I have come across it.
    I will visit often!!

    Hi there,

    I have enjoyed reading your blog, we have similar values you and I. I am a mum of two sons (so far). I breastfeed and will not be enrolling my children into school.
    It’s strange because I feel like I’m parenting the best way possible, yet somehow I feel like the odd one out amongst my family and friends (even though they are supportive of my choices).

    I will continue to read you blog! Good job!

      So far, I’ve managed to avoid Facebook. It seems full of drama, not to mention being a time suck.

    hi,
    probably obviously we’re connected as we’re both talking kids. I have 2 sites, one is a wordpress blog, soiwasborn.com. the other is a posterous blog, http://49thingstotellyourbaby.posterous.com/

    Let’s be in touch.

    Is there an email address where I can contact you? I read your post about breastfeeding your daughter, and it seems like you had some of the same struggles I am having. I’d like to send you my story and see if you had any tips or insights. (You are also welcome to email me!)

    So excited to have found you Code Name: Mama!!!! Just subscribed to your blog! I look forward to reading your past posts!

    I have allowed my primal mothering instincts to guide me with my 3.5 year old son, with whom I nurse, co-sleep, and parent gently. I have managed to avoid returning to work (by being frugal & giving up a lot of worldly luxuries) and placing him in the care of a stranger. It is unfortunate that my darling husband is constantly at odds with all of this (with parenting style rather than money being the issue).

    I find support and strength to follow my instincts from blogs like yours. Thank you!
