I was never happy with the way the Thirsties Duo Wraps fit on Jasper. When it came time to size up his diapers from the smalls to the medium-wides I knew I wanted to try a different kind of cover. BEHOLD. The pull-on pants. These aren’t like the vinyl pants our moms had to use. These smoosh down under the clothes and they don’t look like you have your baby’s hips in a straight jacket. I love them. They were less than $8/ea. The Thirsties were ~$15/ea. 

I went with all white because of my compulsion to try and coordinate his diaper cover with his outfit. No more of that. Heh. I’ve had them about a month and they’ve held up well. You can see the medium-wide before and after prep comparison there alongside the prepped (and well used) smalls.

Quickie cloth diaper stash recap:

  • 4 snappis
  • 2 doz Cloth-eez Organic prefolds, Small
  • 2 doz Cloth-eez Organic prefolds, Medium-wide
  • 4 Thirsties Duo Wraps, size 1
  • 4 Bummis pull-on pants, medium
  • 2 Planet Wise pail liners

I have 15 minutes before I need to leave.

Well. It’s been cold. We’re all ok though. Safe. Sound. Snuggly.

Jasper started rolling over and then he suddenly stopped doing it. He’s a pretty vocal little fella, though. He likes to be talked to and read to. I love him. He’s great.

Jack is good. Jack is the best. I am Jack’s number one fan.

Tori is doing ok…I think. We hope. She seems fine. No developments at all on finding her a new home.

My phone is done syncing and doing all the stuff it needs to do so I’m going to kiss my sweeties and hit the road. 

brain-food: What if instead of throwing your pencil stubs away…


What if instead of throwing your pencil stubs away when they´re too short to use, you could plant them, add some water and watch them grow? Meet Sprout, a pencil with a seed! The high quality pencil features a water activated capsule at its tip, when the pencil is too short to use, you can plant it and have it grow into something delicious, beautiful and fun. Sprout comes in a variety of different flavors, from flowers, to herbs and vegies. A great idea to make writing fun again. watch the video
