Cool Chic Austin Mom part 2

Yet another reality check that I am not the "cool-hip" mom I always dreamed about being.....

Not-so Queen of Green
  • Disposable Diapers-  I hang my head in shame... I use disposable diapers.  The closest I have come to going green is occasionally when changing my son's diaper, I've checked it, shrugged and slapped it right back on.  I mean, if it doesn't weigh 10 lbs yet, it still has some life in it.  It's my little way of saving the environment, one quasi-wet diaper at a time.

  • Composting-  In Austin, gardening is really BIG right now.  Composting is a natural way to create fertilizer to enhance your organic garden.  My only compost pile is the rotting banana stuck between the trashcan and the liner... 
  Fitness Follies 

  • Yoga-  I have started routinely going to yoga, but I can't say that it is because of the way my body is strengthened and my muscles are elongated.  It's really for the 10 minutes of quiet relaxation at the end.  Lights are out.  Soft music is playing.  You're laying down.  And free childcare :)
  • Workout Clothes-  You can create an illusion of being super physically fit by just wearing workout clothes all the time.  No one has to know it is really because those sweatpants actually double as pajamas, and a pony tail masks the fact that you can't find your hair brush.

Next "cool-mom" merit badge:  Making homemade baby food..... will keep you posted!!!

  1. I'm totally in the same boat with you on every single word in Fitness Follies! :) Hint: take a long relaxing bathroom break at the most difficult part during Yoga... makes the session that much better :)
