Okay... Time to tackle some more Ask Goofy Mama questions again. Sorry for the delay.
It seems Vernon is very laid back and go with the flow with life and choices. You seem to be the dominate decision maker... Do you think if you wouldn't have chosen such an extreme "crunchy" lifestyle that Vernon would have been content in a "mainstream" lifestyle or somewhere more in between?
It is true that I am the one who comes up with the idea first for avenues of "crunchiness" to pursue (homebirth, not vaccinating, homeschooling, elimination communication, etc.)... but, after Vernon, you know, READS A FACT about any of it, he's on board.
Well, except for the elimination communication thing. With that, he was, like, "Ugh... that seems gross." But, cut to 14 months later, and he's actually very happy about it because our babe is out of diapers and he likes that.
And, about a lot of things, he is actually more vocal about things than I am. He knows a lot more than me about the reasons behind not vaccinating. He went through chiropractic college and now REALLY believes in the power of the body to heal the body (without nerve/toxic interference).
He gets it.
So, would he have ended up in this "crunchy" lifestyle without me? It's hard to say. Would I have ended up here without him? I don't know that either. But things happen for a reason, and we are where we should be.
Learning and growing on the way.
