I have been so out of the blog loop that it's crazy! We have been participating in the Flats and Handwashing Challenge where over 400 men and women are using only flat diapers and diaper covers on their little one(s). This is to bring awareness that cloth diapers are inexpensive and healthy for your children.
At first I was doing this to watch for when they are pooping but now it's like...cherishing the moments I have with them. Instead of thinking "Oh, I can't wait for them to potty learn." I'm thinking "They are growing up and one day they will be independent and not need mommy to change them." To me that is an eye opener. They grow up so fast and I want to enjoy every moment of it. So with every load I wash from now on will be one less load I have to do until it becomes just a memory. No more matching covers to outfits or stalking cloth diaper swaps and stores for the latest print. Wow, I'm tearing up right now. For the twins this is a chapter that is about to close but for my infant we still have time. Do me a favor y'all let's finish this challenge with memories in our hearts and blisters on our hands.
