Are you Mainstream or an Alternative Mom?

I'm kinda curious how many mamas in here consider themselves to be "alternative moms". =) 


I don't really see a lot of posts in here about our religions or our sexual preferences or things like that. 


I know, it's kinda a silly question to ask but I'm honestly curious =) Or, just hearing about what makes you different from mainstream moms :D

 I'm not sure. I just sort of do what works for us. I'm old fashioned in a lot of ways but I used a lot of AP strategies early on, so I suppose I'm a blend. I think being traditional and old fashioned is actually more "alternative" these days. Especially in our generation. I'm the only person I know that doesn't have a tattoo.

I dont know if i fully get what that means lol. I have tattoos and a pierced tongue. My daughter is introduced to a variety of people and is being raised not to judge people. but i am for the most part just a typlical mom.

Well, a lot of people who say "alternative" mean in appearance or sexualities, religions, or things like that =) 

I'm hoping to introduce my son to more than just the group of people we tend to run into in our town lol 

How many tattoos do you have?

I guess i'm mainstream since I don't have any tattoos yet... I have the normal 3 hole piercings in my earlobes. I want a tattoo or 2 just don't know what I want yet.

Eh I am a mom lol. I do a lot of mainstream things, but I am also Pagan and have AP tendencies with my kids. I think what works for one does not always work for another.

I think I am right down the middle. I use a lot of mainstream things but I have tattoos, try not to feed my kids junk, we are Atheists, we use a lot of the child led philosophies and we homeschooled up until this year.

I guess I'm alternative. No tattoo's but my navel is pierced. My mom has more tattoos and piercing's than I do. We don't believe in god or anything and we're huge nerds. I would love to dress my kids up and go to comic con.
