more on Cloth..

I found a great website last week that sells knock offs of the high quality brands.. yes I have seen them on a Day Care Kiddo and they are so similar that it is definitely worth it. They just need to get here sooner! I have 4 right now and I have had to wash what I have every day or put 2 cloth on him during the day and the rest sposies. I want my big bag of 10 diapers to get here asap so we can go to sposies only at night and when we are out of the house and of course random diaper rashes. Come on cloth diapers!

"Cloth Diapers?!!!"

So our family is in the process of switching to cloth diapers.. yep I said it! We have switched over to pocket diapers that are so much like a disposable the only difference I see is that you get to wash and reuse. Well man oh man do I get strange looks when I tell other moms about my new project! from weird stares to "how are you going to keep up with that laundry???" it is like I have grown an alien head. Yes I am washing them regularly, yes they work for our son, yes I found a great deal...

Think of it this way... I spent 70 bucks recently for 10 diapers.. I will be able to use them over and over until my son is potty trained. And all for a lower price then I would have spent on 2 months of disposable diapers. Not only will they get used now, but I will have a bunch of diapers ready to go for when we have our next child. So pardon me if you ask me about my new cloth diapering habits in a negative fashion and I give you a strange look back.. because I am saving WAY more money than you.

An example of Karma in parenting...

You take a toy from your child that is so annoying you want to break it you are angry at this toy.. you place it up high out of their reach. You leave it there a few days.. heck maybe a week or so. One day your child starts dancing around the living room and that toy you had forgotten about falls behind the entertainment center, that you can not move yourself, and gets stuck with the buttons being pushed and it making constant noise... you then have to listen to this noise over and over until your husband is available to help you move the entertainment center.

Yep, that is Karma.
