Natural parenting requires a certain level of critical thinking towards the mainstream... but that doesn't mean we natural mamas don't love us some celeb-spotting as much as the next girl in the checkout line. There are few things more satisfying (okay, more than a few, but still...) than seeing public evidence of major stars making natural choices for their families. For example, how awesome was it when supermodel Miranda Kerr posted a photo (shot by hottie husband Orlando Bloom) of herself nursing her newborn on her natural lifestyle blog? And good luck not getting totally engrossed in this roundup of celebrity natural childbirth stories! Celebrity parents are even creating brands around their natural child-rearing passions, like Jessica Alba with her new Honest Company. Let's not forget famous eco-dads, either! Hollywood is alllll up in babies these days, and more and more celeb parents are making their natural preferences known when it comes to their kids.
Leave it to the internet to take it up a notch and invent the ultimate in natural celebrity parent sightings. Spurred by a "Hey, Girl: Ryan Gosling" web trend kicked off by this site, and this one, natural mamas are getting in on the fun, attributing the most swoon-worthy of quotes to Hollywood's man of the hour (seriously, every woman I know is in LOVE with Ryan Gosling... I wasn't really feelin' it, but now that I've seen these, well... damn if that man doesn't have my heart along with the rest of them, even if he didn't really say this stuff).
And with that, here's Cloth Diapering Ryan Gosling:
There are more where these came from, too. Check out Glow Bug Cloth Diapers' site for the full effect!
And guess what! There's more! For the Home Birth moms in the audience, I give you HomeBirth Ryan Gosling! Because when it comes to natural parenting and Ryan Gosling, you really can't have too much of a good thing.
Lastly, because the ability to laugh at oneself is a beautiful thing (almost as beautiful as Home Birth Ryan Gosling), I thought I'd share this already-viral vid, "Sh*t Crunchy Mamas Say," for those of you who haven't yet seen it. Props to Mama Natural for hitting the nail on the head with this melange of crunchy mom soundbites. (My thoughts upon watching it? "Yep, guilty as charged.")
Are you feeling inspired? (Still drooling over Ryan?) Any great quotes you'd like to slap on a Ryan Gosling headshot? Any choice additions you could make to "Sh*t Crunchy Moms Say"?
