Do you march to a different drummer?

i dont know. i mean we have a different way of looking at life and sometimes i feel like the odd ball at play dates but i dont think its anything crazy. we allow our children freedom, they have natural punishments instead of time outs. they pretty much choose everything that do in life with little guidance from me. im more relaxed and they get along better when they have to work out there own issues.
I have a list of things:
We have an unconventional schedule ( we get up between 10 & 11 AM and go to bed at Midnight) My hubby works from Noon to 10PM Mon-Fri so that is why we do it.
I make my own laundry soap & dish washer detergent
I use vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, citric acid, peroxide & hot water to clean with
We compost veg. & fruit scraps with yard clippings
we never buy a car brand new ( we work on them when needed too)
we don't just homeschool we unschool
There are things I want to do but just haven't done them enough or at all to put them on this list yet.
Yes on many levels but I'm fine with being different. I don't know very many that can connect with me on all levels outside my husband, and even fewer of them are female. The friends I have are all able to connect with me on at least one or more levels and they are genuine friends that understand me and my life as I do them and their life. As for the rest of society, I could care less about outsiders and their viewpoints.
Yes, we are just very different from the "norm". We also home church and are very conservative people. We are also very frugal but so are a lot of others.
I feel alot of things I do sometimes get me strange looks, or they would if they knew!
That is all I can think of, especially since I now feel I opened my book of secrets. LOL

Yes. I live in a teeny conservative southern baptist texas town...
I homeschool. I homebirth. I nurse my babies for a long time. I am a Buddhist. I'm not conservative much at all....very much a hippie chick.
I get along with everyone so they laugh about my quirkiness...but by no means am I like the people around here...not that it's bad...I'm just very Dharma in a Greg world...
Not much, but it will grow when we get a place of our own (if ever!!!)...
--- We are going with a Midwife/Birth Center this go around (if we had our own place it would be a home birth)
--- Nursing Past 1yr..
--- NO CIO...
I have always done my own thing and pretty much never followed the norm.
I am submissive to my husband.
I don't think daycare is just the same as mommy.
I also make my laundry soap and use vinegar to clean.
My kids can't watch PG movies unless I have seen them first. Most of their friends have read and seen the Harry Potter series or even Star Wars... just too much for a 5 and 7 year old.
yes and no! depends on who im hangin out with! and where im at!
