Creative Photo Ideas for Fall Babies

Even though it’s hot out now Fall is already creeping up.  I know this because Target has their back to school section ramped up and Michaels has pulled out their orange and yellow artificial flower arrangements. Fall is a wonderful time of year for me because it contains the birthdays of my boys.  One November […]

That Time I Lost Our Elf on the Shelf

“Mom, where is Wyatt?” my 6 year old asked as he started combing our home.  “He’s not in my room, maybe he is hiding in the kitchen!” “He must be hiding really, really well….. maybe take a break and finish watching the movie we stopped Friday night and we can look more later.” Crap crap […]

Happy 6th Birthday Fletcher!

The little baby who tested out cloth diapers back when this website first started is now a Kindergartener with two missing teeth!  He can read, write, beat me at Mario Cart, and has his own sparkling personality.  I used to think that this day would never come.  Not because I doubted he would make it […]

Happy 4th Birthday Everett!

My youngest baby turns 4 today and I’ve definitely had a good cry over this fact.  We are well beyond infancy, over a year past the last time he nursed, and I can’t recall the last time we was worn in a carrier.  He still says “but I only 3” when it comes time for […]

I’m struggling here and asking for your input!

In a departure from the normal posts on cloth diapers, my house, or my kids I’m going to put out a problem I’ve been struggling with here on the blog.  I would TRULY appreciate honest feedback and because you are the people I make this website for your voice matters most. My blog- Dirty Diaper […]

I’m back from Adult Summer Camp (ABC Kids Expo)

I could post a lot of photos of the fabulous new products I saw at ABC Kids Expo but I already did that on Instagram.  Instead, as I adjust once again to my normal life, I’d rather reflect on my week of Summer Camp for Adults (term stolen from Katie Pickles from AppleCheeks). Every single […]

7 Ways Cloth Diapering Changed My Life

Without being dramatic I can absolutely say with confidence that cloth diapering changed my life!  That one decision I made while pregnant over 5 years ago has paid dividends for my family and not just because we saved a few thousand dollars over the course of diapering two children.  You’ll be surprised at how drastically […]

I’m only in it for the points: FitBit Addiction

I’m switching gears here from my usual area of expertise (cloth diapers, cloth diapers, breastfeeding, cloth diapers) and throwing a blog curve ball at you today.  (post contains affiliate links to some of the products I’m using that were all my own purchases, this is not a review or endorsement) Fitbit– do you have one? […]

The Teen in 10B

I’m constantly worried that I’m screwing my kids up for life, and not in the good way.  As a child from a dysfunctional home I pride myself in the positives that came from it- like knowing a lot about drug culture (but never trying them because I had the best “say no to drugs” commercial […]

…and a Kim update too! Family, Fitness, Home, and BlogU

No, I’m not making a pregnancy announcement like Lara did yesterday.  However, I realized I haven’t given a good “random stuff” update in a while about my family and our happenings.   The biggest update is that my oldest son is just about to graduate from Pre-K this month and will start Kindergarten at a charter school […]
