Why I'm Opting Not to have My Son's Mouth Fixed
There comes a time in the life of every Hippie, when we have to decide exactly how far we are willing to take our convictions. If I were to sit here and tell you that I was a NATURAL Mama, and then I went on to wash my toilet with Clorox(TM) or to eat food that came from a gas station, you would no longer trust or adore me as you leader in all things NATURAL in parenting.
Recently, after the birth of my Seventh child, Stone, I was saddened to find that our nursing relationship was traumatic and stressed. Little Stone seemed to be having trouble eating. I took him to see my holistic dentist, who diagnosed him with a common childhood issue. Little Stone has a tied tongue.
Windshield Wiper Method of Divination, I was told by the Goddess to leave my little one as NATURE intended. Thus, Stone is still having issues eating. I have taken to squirting the milk in his mouth from across the room.
Why have I made such a choice? It is about choice. It's about my choice and I have to be subculture. I HAVE TO BE! I'll tell you why. I would not be the Mama I am if it were not for the Graces of NATURE. Who would I be if I allowed myself to make any unnatural choices in my life? I am either NATURAL or I am NOTHING. And so the child will live off squirted milk or he will not. I leave it to his true Mother. Mother NATURE.
