I’m snowed in. I’m not a wuss and yes, I HAVE seen snow before. I understand that we’ve been the butt of a lot of jokes this week. But I couldnt get out of my driveway to go to work today. I tried three times and almost side swiped my pear tree before giving up. This stuff is crazy. And yeah, it’s only a few inches but we just aren’t prepared for this stuff. It’s not that we can’t drive, though many of us can’t. The problem is that our state doesn’t have a reserve of salt or trucks that plow the roads. We’re used to mud puddles. Big sloppy red ones. You Northerners can’t expect us to be any more prepared than you would be if you walked outside tomorrow and found a beach. Would you have a bikini and a pair of skis ready? Come on now… You people vacation here. Your grandparents retire here. It’s supposed to be hot!!! Ok I’m done. 🙂
I signed our team up to March for Babies again this year. And I notice that certain people are beginning to rolls their eyes a bit. I’ve been told that Kyson is better now, so why worry about it. Ugh. But I will keep going. Because I want to help babies. Kyson wasn’t in the Nicu for very long and I feel very fortunate, but I wouldn’t want to see another child suffer.
Maybe my heart’s too big. Maybe I’ve still got a touch of depression about it. Maybe I know that if I don’t, who will? Should I leave it up to next unsuspecting mama? I have a friend in Ronald McDonald house right now! I do this for her. I do this for the babies who haven’t even been born or conceived yet. For the mamas who never got to meet their babies. For the mamas who were told “I’m sorry. There’s nothing else we can do”.
It’s not about me.
I want to take today to write about something I’ve grown to love. Hear me out mamas!! I love cloth diapers. I am unconditionally and irrevocably in love with them. (twilight lol) But really. That’s how much I love them. It’s why I flipped out about my water being muddy. And why I spend every last dime I can pull out of the couch cushions on them. And I want to spread the love.
I’ve had a few people ask me about switching and will pass it along like Michelle passed it to me. It’s so much easier than you could possibly ever imagine. You just flush it down the toilet. It’s like potty-training training!!! And I guarantee if you ever try them, you will fall in love too!
Don’t get me wrong, I still use disposables too. He’s wearing Huggies right now! (Laundry day. : / Woot.) But Imagine wearing a pad every minute of everyday for two years. That would suck. I don’t even wear them EVER because I hate them. So I won’t make him do it either. Besides, they’re so stinking cute! It’s exciting to collect them. I read one article that said they were the new beanie babies! (man… if I had all THAT money back!)
So… to new moms or moms to be that are reading this, I extend an invitation to you to come to my house and see my stash. I’ll come to you if you want. (friends only lol I’m not driving outside of Georgia) I’ll even drive with you to the store to show you some different kinds so you can actually see them and touch them. They are the softest soft you can imagine!
Look at my new UGA diaper!!!
I got it from Squeezie Cheeks
(yeah, she makes all those other lame teams’ diapers too. Jk!)
