Every mom I've ever talked to says raising kids is a full-time job. Toss in green-living and teaching kids to care about the earth and one wonders how it can be done. I Thought I Knew Mama, by Charise, is a perfect example of how one mom manages it ... and manages it in style. Charise offers first-time mothers advice on how to get started in 3 Halfway Steps for Mamas Who Want a Green Baby But Aren’t Ready to Go Green All the Way. In What are the cheapest and easiest ways to green your home? she shares tips such as using baking soda for cleaning and recommends inexpensive eco-friendly and non-toxic products from Having trouble finding time to prepare delicious, whole foods for your children? I found a vegetarian crock-pot recipe which her toddlers love. I Thought I Knew Mama is a terrific resource ... for new moms, dads and everyone else. It's positive and encouraging and makes us want to do better.
