Cloth Diapers

Yes I use cloth diapers! There are many reasons that I use cloth diapers, and yes the environment is one of them, but also let's be honest a box of diapers is so expensive!
I also have found that my little princess has a real problem with that blue stuff that is in some of the pampers now. She always gets a diaper rash with them. While I love the pampers swaddlers for when we are out and about, and that is what she will use at daycare, I find that the rest of the disposable diaper world is not for us.
I have tried organic disposable, and chemical free ones as well but I would rather do a load of laundry a day ann stick with the cloth.
Cloth diapers are far different from when I was a kid, and now you can even get disposable liners which are great. They are far more fashionable too! I highly recommend trying these if you have a baby, or give them as a shower gift if you know someone who is having a baby!
Thus welcome to my little cloth diaper world!

It Has Been A Long Time and A Long Road

It has been forever since I have written on the blog, but I am back, and the things I blog about will be a little different, and a lot of you are about to learn a lot of things you didn't know and what happens behind the closed doors. As for now though lets focus on this.
On August 5th I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, and the last 5+ month have been a joy being able to take her to work with me, and be home with her. She is an amazing little girl, and she is absolutely beautiful:
Here she is
Stay tuned for more on her and the newest changes that are coming to the blog!

While there are a shit ton of bad miserable things happening in my world right now, this is not one of them.
Meet my baby girl.....

I Suck

Okay so a few months ago, like back in June I said I would get "back on the blogging train." I was wrong, I did not because it was:

                              SUMMER



Wow do I love summer, but now I am back to work, and back to school next week, and all the kids are back to school tomorrow. I welcome fall, but am already looking forward to next summer.

Wow

I am really bad at blogging, well at least lately. However I am now done school for the summer, and almost done work for the summer as well, so I will get back on the blogging train, and stay up to date with the blog.

Washington DC

This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to Washington DC, for the Lungevity Grassroots event. I had a great time, and got to meet some wonderful people, that were all there for a cause that is near, and dear to my heart.

Sickness

On Monday night Zack said "Mom I need a bucket in my room, I have a belly ache." Being the horrible mom that I am in these cases, said "No, Zack, it is now an hour past your bed time, and you are just playing a game, you need to go to bed please." Well needless to at about 11pm he came up and woke me up telling he had just thrown up all over his bed, and yes he did. I felt so bad for my child for the next 12 hours he was throwing up, and miserable. I spent the full 12 hours with him awake, watching him go through this horrible stomach bug. He then woke up the next day feeling great. I thought for sure I would be up all night the next night with it. That did not happen, Tuesday came and went, Wednesday I was feeling great, even got a workout in after dance. I woke up at 3:15 for work on Thursday, and knew right away I was done, I spent my next 7 hours sicker than a dog, throwing up, and even I think fainting, I would be sitting on the couch, and wake up in the floor a few minutes later. After I was done getting sick, I got a really high fever, and had the worst body aches, and head ache I have ever felt in my life, it was the worst illness I have had in a long time, and the stomach pain was crippling. Zack, and I are both better now of course, and not that any of you wanted to hear or read this, but I just thought I would share what this dreadful virus is like that is going around, and remind you all to scrub your hands all the time, and take your vitamins (even though I take mine everyday, and it did not save me).
