ask? Because obviously I have way too much time on my hands and
because this last baby stole my last functioning brain cell.
I actually stumbled into this brave new world on a quest to figure out
why anyone would do such a horrible thing. What I found was actual
costs of how much I have spent on diapers. That isn't what drove me
over the edge either. It was finding out that disposables are going up
in price AGAIN!! I couldn't believe it. I almost threw up in the isle
at Costco the first time I paid almost forty bucks for a box of
diapers and the price is going up AGAIN!? It drove me to the edge and
I gladly jumped into the dark world of cloth diapering.
So far the transition has been cake. Luke has blow outs of gianormous
proportion anyway so who cares if it's in cloth versus a disposable
made out of gold. Abbie is potty trained except for at night and Paul
is constipated over half the time anyway. A few rabbit pellets never
hurt anybody. Don't get me wrong though, I'll keep disposables around
for those fun stomach bugs. I'm not that crazy, yet.
As far as the crunchy part, I'm all about being a good steward of the
earth. However, the thought of my babies disposables didn't keep me up
at night. I'd be filling up landfills left and right if those diaps
were cheaper. For now I'm trading my landfilling ways for sucking dry
all the lakes and ponds in Texas from all the laundry I'll be doing now.
