I was not quite sure when I would have to write this post... I started a few months ago and then plans changed, so I deleted and over the last 3 weeks have thoughtfully considered just how I was going to be able to break the news to all of you! I feel like I am lying to you all, so here it goes...
We are completely POTTY TRAINED! Yup... out of my beloved cloth diapers my 2 year old is! Everyday I walk into my living room, which so elegantly houses my stash of FuzziBunz, Bummis, Thirsties, Charlie Banana and the list goes on. The stash remains untouched and no longer begs for a wash to replenish what we had used the day prior. They all sit clean and ready for use, the only issue with that is that my baby won't wear them anymore! We are still in cloth at night so I have not been completely forced out of my tree hugging ways, but using one diaper a day is waaay different than 10! So in the huge excitement of graduating my 4th potty trained baby, comes the sadness of not being able to use cloth anymore, I suppose having one more child would quench that cloth thirst, but then I would have to have a petition sent around for all of you to sign on my behalf and then present it to my husband. If you are up for the challenge, let me know!
There it is out in the open now, I am mourning cloth in my house, but very happy to keep helping you all find your ways into it! So to celebrate my minor exit of the diapering phase ( remember, we still use it at night) I want one of you to have a shot at a brand new BumGenius Free Time from my little one to yours!!

Do you have any idea what this could stand for? FWWKM? Seems a pinch obscene upon first glance but let me assure you this is far better than what I really do want to shout! You have SAHM and WAHM abbreviations floating around everywhere, the two seem to conjure up immediate empathy from many and rounds of applause from the rest. What about the two combined? That is where FRAZZLED WORKING WITH KIDS MOM comes in.
Don't get me wrong here, being able to leave my home and go to work with my kids is a blessing, I know this, but did you just read right? GO TO WORK WITH MY KIDS.... This means endless potty breaks, the youngest pooping in her diaper just as I have someone come in and need details on pursuing a journey into cloth. You think that stink sets me off on the right foot with a new parent?
How about unpacking dozens of Snappis and realizing I was shorted 8 packs, only to find all 8 shoved into my printer the next day, of course I had already emailed the poor Snappi lady asking what happened to my missing packs! A ringing telephone is an instant trigger to a meltdown that requires both my hands, ears and eyes and an apology on my end to the caller and asking if I can call them back when my spawn finally come to their senses. There are many days I just want to pick up the phone and call my husband just to let him hear the mass chaos going on around me in hopes of getting some sort of sympathy and just to be passive aggressive mainly! This is serious, when the 2 year old has the 3 year old in a headlock I am sure someone is contemplating whether or not calling CPS is within their moral obligation... As I write this they are beginning to fight over a "pink bike".
Once I leave the store I can only hope that they will both fall asleep on our way to pick up the 6 year old, I have had enough toddler talk all day long and I just want some piece and quiet to enjoy the Kevin Kammeraad cd that is on constant reply in the car. What? You don't know Kevin? Well, then I suggest you google him and see what my listening pleasure consists of. My kids know his songs by heart and so do I.... I catch myself singing them alone sometimes.
Do you now realize what FWWKM means? If you catch any typos or grammar errors, just do me a favor and keep it to yourself, most of this was typed holding the 2 year old who got applesauce on my shirt!

Once most of us who are using cloth get comfortable with it, we find it hard to contain our excitement to other moms! We want to talk brands, colors, fits and inserts to anyone who will listen ( our poor husbands) especially the few moms around us who seem to take a slight interest but not really ready to take the plunge into the sea of fluff. I know about 89% of you have used the line "just try it, it's easier than you think" right? Now here is your chance to get that friend,sister or neighbor to give it a try!
