It is pouring rain and I should be lounging around with my husband in a luxury hotel room in Seattle but instead I am sitting at my kitchen table in my pajamas and in desperate need of a shower. The best laid plans… If you read my post last week you know that my biggest […]

I am a cloth diaper user, have been for years now. I adore them and can’t say enough good things about them. I have blogged about them several times including my list of the top 10 reasons to cloth diaper. One of the reasons I fell in love with Twitter so much is because, shortly […]
