About P&A

Good day! I am Ana, the Panda. I am a 29 year old single mother to one rambunctious young man born in August of 2010, the Ananas. We live in an old Tudor in a lively suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. It's pretty nice. I have a degree in Biology and Philosophy and was fortunate enough to find a job in my field which is looking more and more like a "career" every day.

I like the color green, music, writing, poetry, photography, gardening, literature, research, cooking, baking, crafting, and speaking.


The Ananas is budding into his personhood at amazing rates - my DaSein! He loves causing a ruckus, superheros, Disney, reading, drawing, and taking his clothes off (imagine that). I am astounded every day and love him evermore.


I am a hippie-child, as my best friend calls it. I might be a little crunchy around the edges. We strive to live consciously and do our best to practice some self-sustainability.


I am very much about Natural Parenting - Breastfeeding, Baby-Wearing, Co-Sleeping, Autonomy, Peaceful Parenting, Consciousness, Natural Living. I retain the right to peacefully disagree with anything I want and do my best to make the best choices I am able to with the knowledge I am able to obtain.


I work in an environmental laboratory, passing mounds of paperwork from one end of my desk to another on the daily, and am also a volunteer Articles Editor at Natural Parents Network. I work with Dionna at Code Name: Mama, as well, helping to moderate her FaceBook Page.


This blog has multiple purposes for me: to record my thoughts, memories, and things I really should remember because I won't write them down; to offer information and ideas; to be a place where my friends can get to know what the current haps in my life are; to act as a sort of therapy.



I'm interested to see where this will lead and am quite appreciative that you have taken the time  to read this.


Cheers!


Ana
