The Cafe The Cafe

Formula is second best and you're a bad mom if you use it.

So often I hear that statement on Cafemom and out here in the real world too. Yes, we all know that breast is best. But do you know what else is best?

Cloth diapering

Homeschooling with a really enthuthiastic parent who has loads of money and a Phd in Education

Organic produce grown in your own backyard

Cage free eggs from your chicken coop

Meat that's been hunted and killed humanely in the wild with bows and arrows on a week long hunting trip.

Clothing that's been weaved from the cotton you grew yourself and from the animal skins you previously hunted.

I write this to you, as I sent my breastfed and formula fed, disposable diapered (when it was convenient) daughter off to public school, after feeding her a breakfast of caged eggs.

Acknowledging that I give my kids second best doesn't make me a bad mom. It makes me a practical one.

A lot of that stuff is subjective, anyway. You do what you have to do.

Well yes you do. But out of curiosity, what exactly is subjective?

 You know how to use Wikipedia, right?

Subjective may refer to:

  • Subjectivity, a subject's personal perspective, feelings, beliefs, desires or discovery, as opposed to those made from an independent, objective, point of view

Lmao! I know what the word means. I meant what part of my post did you find to be subjective.

Ya know what's funny? Almost 7 years ago, for my first, breast feeding was looked down upon. Now it's the other way around. Go figure!

The child must come first if you do that than you will be fine.
