Winter makes me crazy I guess. CRAZY to the point where I am going to try cloth diapering. Go ahead, go back and read that one again. I'll wait. I have a confession to make and it is that my ice cold little heart breaks every time I empty out that stinky-ass Diaper Genie, tie up the end so that it resembles a nice little bolster pillow (a smelly one at that) and put it in the garage until trash day. THEN (and my husband doesn't know about this one) I sit by the front window and sob as the poor garbage man throws it into the garbage truck. Okay, maybe not, but in my head that's how it goes. Then, the bolster pillow of shit rides away to sit in a landfill and NOT decompose for like 80 years or something.
I know what you're thinking. You see the words "cloth diapering" and immediately think of the good old days of pre-folded diapers and safety pins JESUS ARE YOU GOING NEAR YOUR CHILD WITH THAT and rinsing sticky poop into the toilet, doing the full dunk and throwing it in the laundry room to stink up the joint. Well, I have good news. One, YEAH that's what I immediately thought about too so you're not alone. Two, it isn't like that anymore, HALLELUJAH unless of course you are a glutton for punishment and choose to do it that way. Cloth diapering has come a long ass way and once I started researching it IT BLEW MY MIND. It is really not that much different from disposables except that you just wash and reuse the same diapers instead of sending them to go die in a heap of smelly garbage. The best part is that it is cheaper. WAY cheaper if you do it right and I am all about saving money so I can get that massage.
I totally blame Jill over at Baby Rabies for this one. Hopefully in the weeks to come I will be thanking her and not cursing her out via blog. Stay tuned for my newest adventure or trip to hell, whichever it ends up being.
