We have been cloth diapering since our middle child, Felicity, was 2. A few weeks later, her little brother was born and he has been in nothing but cloth his whole little life (unless Grammy is babysitting). He is now 9 months old and for the first 6 months of his life, we were cloth diapering both him and Felicity until she was potty trained at 2 1/2. Quite a good handful of FaceBook friends have asked me for cloth diapering info during the last few months. We LOVE cloth diapering and I LOVE passing on info and tips we've learned along our journey so far but it sure does take some time to link and explain all the info to their FaceBook page each time someone new asks. I joked about making a FaceBook photo album tutorial so that the next time someone asked, I could, in one click, send them all the info I've learned so far. That's when my Pastor's wife told me that's what a blog is for. : ) So, coming soon will be tips and links from all I've learned so far in this adventure of cloth diapering...including LOTS of pics. So if you're looking for info, check back soon and in the mean time, if you are curious one bit about it, I'd really suggest joining http://www.diaperswappers.com/ . Its an online community of cloth diapering moms (and a handful of dads and grandmas). I really like it but that may be because they have subforums of other things I'm interested in as well, such as homeschooling, living green, simple/thrifty living ideas, and crafting. Anyways, I'm off to grab my camera and start gathering info for you. Oh, and it'll take a few posts to get all the info on here so I'll be posting this in segments.
After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.
