Hey, crunchy mamas! Are you ready for a laugh?

This video is hilarious!

Sh*t Crunchy Mamas Say

Thanks to Genevieve at Mama Natural for this fantastic video.

Share Your Comments

See how many things you say! I have said almost ALL of these things.

I especially loved the part where she says, “Oh, no, I got low fat!” Hahaha! I have done that.

And spraying the cloth diapers and drinking out of mason jars. So many great details!

I got complaints about the “foul language” when I posted this on Facebook so I will make this statement.

I did not name this video. And actually, I’m sure that Genevieve, the producer of the video only named it with the word “Sh*t” that because it is a meme on YouTube — Sh*t Girls Say, Sh*t Texans Say, Sh*t Kids Say to Their Moms, and so forth. If she had called it something else, it wouldn’t get found on YouTube.

That video was hilarious. I posted it to reddit, but I think some (most?) of the references went right over people’s heads.


marina February 11, 2012 at 9:56 AM

hahaha! that was great!!
my kids are in elementary school now, but I remember some of the moments!
and for coconut oil, I always look for it in the store :)))
i don’t think most of my friends will get this video though, i am the weird one among them :) some are coming along though…


Erin February 11, 2012 at 9:58 AM

Awesome, love it! Not a mommy yet but preparing, and still I’ve said lots of that stuff. People think I’m nuts! This is too funny, gotta have a sense of humor about it.


Amy February 11, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Sooooooo funny!!!!! I love it! I had to watch it again!


Leslie February 11, 2012 at 10:02 AM

Ohhhhh, this makes me LAUGH!!!


Tiffany Workman February 11, 2012 at 10:13 AM

LOL! Thanks for posting. :)


Kim February 11, 2012 at 10:31 AM

I saw this video a ways back. It’s awesome! My husband said it’s like someone followed me around with a microphone!


Susan February 11, 2012 at 10:50 AM

I made my daughter watch this because of the mason jars. We recently switched to drinking out of mason jars and she thought we were weird! But hey, they are sturdy and easy to wash. Crunch on, Sisters!


Heather :) :) :) February 11, 2012 at 11:38 AM

I”m not much for swearing…BUT this video was really, really FUNNY :) :) I’ve said some of those things. I actually do drink out of Mason jars. In fact, I took one of my Mason jars, and punch a whole in the lid, big enough for a straw…and used that as my water bottle at work. You won’t believe how many moonshine, “white lightning” and Hillbilly comments I got :) :) Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)


Erin McHugh February 11, 2012 at 3:12 PM


I too drink out of mason jars, and had a friend ask me if I was drinking moonshine! Glad to know I’m not the only out there drinking out of mason jars. They are so versatile.


Ariel February 12, 2012 at 2:34 PM

My “moonshine” jar and I are quite famous around here!

Ha-ha-ha-ha! Someones been eavesdropping in on my life. It’s been about 5 years, but man, the sound of the breast pump brought it all back!

Wait a minute…does this mean I’m crunchy? I thought I was chic?


sablouwho February 11, 2012 at 12:00 PM

I’m laughing, I’m kinda into a fair amount of the “crunchy” stuff (whole fat raw dairy, etc). When she exclaimed “Oh no, I bought the LOW FAT!” I nodded in recognition–I did that once recently and was so disappointed, especially because I didn’t notice until after I opened to package so it was too late to exchange it!

Admittedly, some of this stuff went right over my head, probably b/c I don’t have/ want kids of my own. I had no idea what that machine was when I first saw it and was wondering “Is that a breast pump?”


marilee February 11, 2012 at 11:53 AM

So funny!


sablouwho February 11, 2012 at 12:03 PM

Thanks for pointing out that it’s a YouTube meme, Ann Marie–I had a feeling that it wasn’t you who was promoting that! I have a comedienne friend who recently did a You Tube video that parodies the meme, and she called it “Poop Overly Nice People Say” because she absolutely doesn’t want to use that meme. Hope she get’s found on You Tube!


Aimee February 11, 2012 at 12:29 PM

Love it! I’ve said these things too!


Merina February 11, 2012 at 1:03 PM

Awesome! I can’t tell you how many times my husband has accidentally come home with the nonfat in that same yogurt brand, much to our dismay. The breast pump noise!!! When I was pumpiing for my newborn in the NICU and delirious from being at the hospital 20 hours a day, I could have sworn that pump was talking with those sounds! No references to slings or baby Moby?? I think it needs a sequel!


wendi February 17, 2012 at 9:01 PM

Yes when I first pumped I told my mom and husband that it was talking LOL. And I always thought it did :)


Demi February 18, 2012 at 5:58 AM

Ah, but there was an Ergo! I have always thought I looked slimmer when I wear my child on the front because she hides the belly fat! :)


Carol February 11, 2012 at 1:50 PM

Laughed out loud – so funny!


Beth Stowers February 11, 2012 at 3:11 PM

This is a hoot! :D I think I have said just about everything that was said on this video.

I shared it on Facebook and my “crunchy” friends loved it! I had a few friends who commented on it and didn’t understand some of the comments (they parent differently and have different concerns about life and health in general). A friend who is moving back to the U.S. after living in Europe for years asked if this is what “crunchy” moms are like in the United States. She said that things are much different over there.


Heather Garfias February 11, 2012 at 3:36 PM

Bahahaha…especially love the mom or mother-in-law looking at her watch during that “it’s called the business of being born” bit!

And yes, I can cop to the “aw, I bought the low fat yogurt!” bit. What did I do? Bought the sour cream and mixed it together. It’s so hard to find commercial yogurt that isn’t low-fat or non-fat!


Ariel February 13, 2012 at 1:14 PM

It actually isn’t difficult to just make your own yoghut or keifir with whole, raw milk. You can actually make yoghurt in a crock pot, and keifir is super-easy: just plunk in the grains and leave it out on a counter!


Gabi February 11, 2012 at 6:29 PM

Yeah, priceless! I mean if we can’t take a moment to laugh at ourselves, what kind of natural mamas are we?! :) You crawled into my head, for sure…and i thought I was alone in this fight. heehee…


Maria February 11, 2012 at 11:08 PM

Oh my gosh I think I have said almost all of that. Caught the quick reference to EC – so nice they included that one! Thanks for the link and the laughs.


Jeanmarie February 13, 2012 at 5:20 PM

I didn’t get that one, what’s EC?


Naomi February 17, 2012 at 3:32 PM

EC is Elimination Communication – teaching babies to use the toilet. I haven’t followed it exactly, but by nine-months my daughter regularly used the toilet for pooping, and I LOVED not having to rinse the cloth diapers.

I love the “You use REGULAR deoderant?” I just made homemade deoderant yesterday. Guess I’m crunchy :)


Lisa Carey February 12, 2012 at 8:26 AM



Jeanmarie February 12, 2012 at 9:46 PM

Loved it! I’ve seen some hilarious ones in this series.


Kate February 13, 2012 at 4:04 AM

Oh gosh, this is everyone I know including myself! – yup, Im drinking coconut water out of a mason jar as we speak! Love it :)


Gwen February 13, 2012 at 3:01 PM

F*ckin’ hilarious, and I DO have a potty mouth!!!!!!! LOL

LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!

From one crunchy mama to another… sharing on my FB walls! :)



ImaTo6 February 14, 2012 at 7:51 AM

Right on mama!!!! LMFAO Potty mouth mama here!!!


ImaTo6 February 14, 2012 at 7:49 AM

Holy Sh*t ;-) that was fantastic!!!!! I am in hysterics… and figure I should mention that there are some of your readers, such as myself, who appreciate the colorful language.Not everyone chooses to use “socially acceptable” wording as part of their morality. Words are a reflection of intention and I’m pretty sure the intention of her video and you posting it here is to make us laugh and feel proud and light hearted. Mission accomplished! I freakin love your blog, ladyface! Thanks for being real while remaining sensitive to ALL. I can relate to every single thing she mentioned LMAO


Jinni February 14, 2012 at 5:37 PM

I’m still laughing. It tickles me daily . . . .

Reply February 17, 2012 at 7:38 PM

This was so well done and so hysterical. My sister shared it with me b/c she said it reminded her of me b/c I think I have said everything in that video. It was so awesome! I shared it on FB too!



Jill February 21, 2012 at 11:31 PM

There was bad language?? huh, I totally didn’t notice because I was having too much fun laughing!! Thank for posting parts one and two.
