“The most surprising part about becoming a parent: how much my view of the world has changed, including how I both gained additional understanding for my parents and yet also felt additional confusion. “ Posted by: Ewokmama
“The most surprising thing for me, throughout pregnancy and now while nursing my twins, is how different men and women really are. Physically, my husband can’t do as much for the boys as I do (nursing) and emotionally we respond to them in different, but both loving, ways.” Posted by: Sally

I’ve had allergies all spring. Either that, or a cold. Or maybe both. Who knows.
I do know I sometimes get exczema, so I’m always on the lookout for “green” personal care and cleaning products. And here’s my latest find…method. Actually, to be clear, method found me. Earlier this spring, the method folks emailed me asking me to host a party at their temporary store in New York City. After doing a bit of due diligence, I decided I liked the company’s dedication to non-toxic products. And so, I said, sign me up. (To learn more about this, go to the bottom of the method site, click on either FAQ or Company Info.)
The party wasn’t your typical “tupperware” fest. In fact, there was little talk of cleaning. Instead, a “mixologist” taught us how to make organic drinks. The Liquid Muse…aka Natalie…made the best mojito I have EVER had. Ever. And fortunately, I’m not pregnant or breastfeeding, so I didn’t have to consider anything other than my low tolerance.
Here’s the recipe for that mojito.
Method Mojito
(Recipe created by The Liquid Muse, and inspired by Method Home)

1 heaping tablespoon of peeled, seeded and diced organic cucumber
1 heaping tablespoon of diced organic lime
1 teaspoon raw brown sugar
3-5 torn mint leaves
1 1/2 ounces organic vodka (Square One has a new cucumber-infused one!)
organic sparkling lemonade
Muddle cucumber, sugar and mint leaves in tall glass. Pour in vodka. Fill with ice. Top with sparkling lemonade. Garnish with a sprig of mint or lime wheel.

Now for the exciting part…I have a giveaway of method’s new line of baby and kids’ products. You can read about them here on the method blog. The kind folks at method have put together a collection of theses items.
To win, please leave a comment answering this question: What has been the most surprising part of being pregnant or a new parent? The deadline to enter this contest is June 25th. I’ll be away until then, so you may not see your comment posted until I get back.
