------------------------------------------------------

I am a radical and a pioneer! 

An advocate for children's rights in the 70's, when women were still struggling for their rights. 

Granola crunchy back when it meant your cereal... 
Home-birthing with midwives before it was legal in Ontario... 

Attachment parenting before it got a name... 
Invented the term "full-term breastfeeding" - and nursing my little ones way back in the 70's when formula had become the "way of the future"!

Home-schooling when it wasn't popular yet, and most people thought it was illegal... 
Unschooling before it became a movement!

An entrepreneur before it was a word...
Self-taught marketer when the books were being written.

Designer of baby carriers before the mommy-world discovered them... 
WAHM before it became an acronym... 

Raw coding my own website before the rest of the world knew what dotcom meant! 

"Mommy blogger" when blogs were still dominated by men...

Collector of pregnancy stories over 44 years old when they told me it was impossible or a miracle....

Frugal and couponing before some of you were even born!
