wow, yeah, we finally have internet at our house! We moved back to our house in Newton and haven't had internet. I've been facebooking, twittering, and emailing from my phone! that's not easy! I did two twitter parties that way! yikes.
Anyway. I got a part time job. And it's from home, and I dont get paid enough per week to have to claim it was income! I created a blog/facebook/twitter page for the local baby boutique. I'm pretty excited about it. you can go to to check it out. it's a brand new blog, so please join with the anticipation of reviews and giveaways and learning about natural parenting, cloth diapers, breastfeeding, organic clothing and toys. you can also email if you have any questions.

Brighton is doing well. He's hit the terrible two's! It's not so bad. he likes to hit and stomp and take things away from people. Pretty normal i guess, but we are trying o deter him from the hitting. We are experimenting with "time out". it's working pretty good so far. He doesn't quite get it yet, but he knows he's been bad when we put him there. We need to get a bench or chair of some kind.

so I have these really awesome blog ideas and have no time to write them. So here's a quick update.

I do have a giveaway coming up. I have in written I just have to email it to the company who's hosting it....

I don't have internet at the moment, but i'm making it work.

I was going to post a picture but the picture button disappeared on me...someone help please.

i got a happy heiny diaper in the mail from franklin goose. It was the first cloth diaper I ever heard of. The owner was on a podcast i listened to call Pregtastic and she inspired me to try cloth. This was back in 2007...3 years later i finally have one! It's a pocket style, which i've never used before, but i like it. It is really good for night time and it's cute. I got the chocolate color and the snaps are white. I wish the snaps were chocolate too. But that's my only complaint.

I should be getting two katydid diapers today. I can't wait to use them. I do have diaper laundry to do today so maybe i'll get that done too.

I love my life right now. B and I get to play and read and eat all day and I love it.

does your baby really care...

...what you put on his butt? I got this question the other day from a lady (mom) who saw that B had on a cloth diaper.

You know what, he probably doesn't care if he's in cloth or not (or maybe he does), but I do care.
I care because the pros of cloth diapering far out way what little pros disposables have. What pros do disposables have? They are easier????? Not really. Did you know that you are not allowed to throw human waste away. That's right. I heard it was against the law in some states. So you HAVE to shake out that poopy disposable diaper, just like you swish the cloth poopy diaper in the toilet. Did you know that breastmilk poop is water soluble? Which means you can just toss the diaper in the wash, no swishing. How easy is that.
I care because I don't want dirty disopsables on the side of the road. I don't want there to be no room for trash on earth so they have to live in space (have you seen wall-e?).
I want my son to grow up on a clean earth. I want him to have children who grow up on a clean earth.
I care because I want to save money. I have about $300 dollars worth of cloth diapers if that. I have something tangible for my money, that I use daily. I'm not throwing my money in the trash.
I lost my job at the begining of this year. I now am able to cloth diaper B full time and I love it. I don't have to waste my gas to go buy diapers. I made my own cloth wipes so i don't buy those anymore. I make my own wipe solution out of stuff i already had. I did have to buy baby oil, so i spent 3 dollars on diapers in 3 months.

So no, B probably doesn't care that he has cloth on his bum, but maybe someday he will.
