I took this little quiz a few weeks ago and scored a 132. I had no idea I was so out there! LOL!

Acadia April 16th, 2007 06:28 AM

I had to just use what I plan on doing.

105!

jhmomofmany April 16th, 2007 08:24 AM

Not sure how, but I double-checked my math.... I scored off the chart... 152. No wonder people look at me funny. :lol:

sighandbreathe April 16th, 2007 09:17 AM

Going by what I am doing now/choosing 'would like to', I score a 91. If I score it as if I have a child and everything goes according to plan, I score a 132.

Niamh ૐ April 19th, 2007 05:30 PM

47 Sprinkled with Granola.

Got the most points when it came to cloth diapering and breastfeeding.

Butter April 23rd, 2007 05:27 PM

I scored a 145... which makes no sense since it is above the highest threshold for the scoring (and I didn't pick the highest points for a lot of the questions, too). Yeah, I'm pretty darn crunchy. I do everything on the list to some extent. My favorite crunchy thing is cloth diapering (wash my own, don't make them, but I do use cloth pads for me that I made).

KBeans April 23rd, 2007 07:25 PM

cloth diapering and BFing is where i did get most of my points too niahm. and co sleeping, i would still be co sleeping and still do to some extent if christian lets me LOL isn't it suppose to be the other way around?

LOL! I went from Pretty Crispy to Mmm! Love that whole-grain crunch! just by changing the homebirth from thinking about it to Yes, unassisted, lol. I am so excited for my upcoming unassisted birth!!!!! :cheer:

Carliegirl May 11th, 2007 01:29 PM

I'm a 100...

That's about how I feel...just traditional enough to tick off some of the crunchy folks, and far too crunchy for the traditional crowd. There's no winning! :P

Soap Lady May 14th, 2007 04:05 PM

I scored 82. I guess I'm "crispy", not truly "crunchy"! ;)

dzt66 May 15th, 2007 08:27 AM

That was funny! I am only sprinkled with granola - and only barely. I got a 22. But I still appreciate all you crunchy people!!!
