Sammy’s IFSP went well today. It is a long boring meeting where we figure out what developmental goals he should have for the next year and how we can help him meet them. This is a good thing. But it involves a bunch of B.S. and sign about a bazillion papers. The good news is that he will continue in physical and speech therapy (for feeding issues).
But many of you may be wondering about the crunchiness thing I mentioned. First, a confession: I like to read the blogs of people I have never actually met. My brother Dave and his wife Monica have blogs and these have links on them that lead to other blogs. The other night while I was up with Isaac, I was reading random blogs and came across one that had a quiz “how crunchy are you?” I was unfamiliar with this term, but I took the quiz anyway. Afterwards I decided to research crunchy, and I am now intrigued. Is crunchy supposed to be good or bad? Basically the term seems to refer to preferring things that are natural and/or organic, like granola. In regards to mothering it means natural births, cloth diapers, homeschooling, co-sleeping etc. I wanted to post a clear definition, but I haven’t found one. Maybe some of you are familiar with this term? I’d like to post some more on this. But Paul is waiting to get online.
