You’d think after nearly four years…
A) cloth diapering in our house would be by rote. And,
B) there wouldn’t be too much to talk about on the topic of cloth diapers
However, a revelation occurred last night on the ride home from the grocery store. A little cloth diaper humor, shall we say?
I was musing to my hubby about when we’d be done cloth diapering….and I said, “I guess I won’t be reviewing cloth diapers anymore.”
To my shock, he replied, “That would be an answer to prayer!”
Confused, I said, “Really? That we’d be done with cloth or that I wouldn’t be reviewing more diapers?”
Him: Reviewing! There’s so many different diapers in our house. Everything has a different insert. I just can’t believe that there’s new diapers coming out! That they can create so many different kinds! Some are big, thick, extra long. Then skinnier ones, then I fold them up and I’m like “how is this supposed to fit around their butt.” All the inserts look exactly the same—
Me: No they don’t, some have one snap, some have none, some have two. Some diapers are all in one so you don’t have to match them up.
Him: No, they all look the same. The names on the tags wash off and then I can’t figure out how to put them with the right cover.
Me: You have to have a system. Don’t let two loads of diapers get mixed up, otherwise, forget it! Cloth diaper pandemonium.
Him: But sometimes the laundry doesn’t get turned over fast enough, we need more laundry baskets!
Me: Okay, but you have to have a system. You lay out all the covers, then you match up the inserts you know, and then you figure out the ones you don’t know.
Him: No, it’s just a blind grab. First cover and first insert – they go together!
So. There you have it. Silly cloth diaper humor! Or… insights into our deep and probing conversations about cloth diapering dilemmas.
I have to say though, hubby does a great job of keeping the diaper laundry moving…he’s always throwing a load in the wash to dryer before work!
But I probably shouldn’t tell him about the new diapers on their way here for the Merry Fluffy Christmas Event!! (Yes! I’m participating!). I’ll just sneak them into the laundry and hope they blend in!
Does your husband participate in your cloth diapering adventures? Who’s more savvy about the various brands and styles?
