You Might be a "Crunchy" Parent if...

Have you heard this term? "Crunchy" parent?
I hadn't either, until recently.
When I realized I am one!
I was so excited I started
looking into all the fun "crunch" details.
I borrowed and tweaked a list of
"You Might be "crunchy" if's
So tell me... are YOU Crunchy?
You Might be "Crunchy" if...
You know what an amber teething necklace is, and you own one.
