Insta Friday

Yup you’ve got it. It’s that time again.

So this was basically our haul from the GCDC event that we attended. Mixed in there are product samples, information pamphlets, and various discount codes and coupons. Score! Oh yea and off to the right are the Fuzzibunz diapers and changing pad that we won.
Now I realize that this picture is a little dark. This was one item that I was excited about that we got two sample packets of in our goodie bag haul. It is Dr. Robin sunscreen for kids. Why am I excited to try it? It’s natural and made in CA. Which means somewhat local. I have also been looking for a natural sunscreen to try. I currently use SPF 50 on my DD, but maybe 30 will be good enough.
Q-bert anyone? Stacking blocks with DD. She is really good at stacking now. I remember four blocks on her own being hard and now she makes towers.
This is a sign that clearly spring has sprung. Baby geese. Canadian Geese to be more exact. They must be lost … haha. They were too cute to pass up.
Allegedly the Service Engine Soon light is on because we changed out the fuel filter that was leaking and did not yet reset the battery. Darling S said that he would take care of this. That was before April. Uhuh. I know.
2/3 of our recycling. Cardboard/paper, glass and steel/tin cans. It is taking up space and piling up. We do not have trash cans outside yet to put it all in. I want to take it and get it out of here, but I don’t want to go alone with the kids the first time that I go. Something like that could be bad times with two babies. I would like to go with S to see what it is like so I can figure out a game plan. So for now it piles up. *sigh*
Lastly, the devastation of this morning already at 9 AM. It’s okay as long as she is happy.
Happy Friday.

PS I know that I have not yet posted my Tula review. I have it drafted, but it is not yet complete. Hopefuly if that babies cooperate it will be up this afternoon or tomorrow.

Great Cloth Diaper Change

Okay, so the big event was Saturday. First I will say that the numbers have not yet been released, however I am certain the record was broken. Last year the location we were at had 37 participants, and this year there were 65.

Woohoo!

Our family made out like bandits. We left with two Fuzzibuns diapers, one changing pad, and two drop in days of day care! For our small donation to the RDA we made out.

Daddy didn’t actually think I was going to get up to go. He also was considering not going. I will not complain about the time. With participation from 12 (or 17 I can’t remember) countries, the time for our event was not that bad. It was at 9 local time. Imagine the mama’s in Hawaii? 6 AM their local time. I am afraid that I would not be ready for that.

This will be my last cloth diaper rant for a while. I thought that I would just add a few things that I like that were not my top 3 reasons for switching. 

First the top 3 reasons were

1. Save money
2. Potty train earlier
3. Greener, smaller carbon foot print

Other things I like/love.

When I’m out of diapers I don’t have to drive somewhere and wait in line. I just walked to the laundromat, or now my washing machine.

No rashes. No lie. DS is almost 5 months old and has not had a single rash. DD had quite a few by this time using disposables. I never blamed the diaper, but now I wonder.

I just thought I would throw out there a great idea I came up with. There are diaper services all over. So …

Considering cloth? Do a diaper service for two weeks or a month to test it out. This is not cheaper than washing your own but a great way to get started.

Or …

Know someone who is expecting? Gift a month of diaper service. New baby is already a lot to handle why have the extra concern of diapers (buying or washing)? That and some dinners will make new parents first month more relaxing. (Still sleepless, but more relaxed)

Later this week I will be posting a Tula review, woohoo.

I would also like to brag that I have moved into the world of woven wraps also. I am sure there will be more to come on those too.

Thanks for listening to my rant.
Happy Monday!

Gwen
