Warehouse Roulette – The Sh*tcan
April 26, 2012 5:30 am | by

I’ve been bugged by Jenn and others to write posts on the blog for a long time, but I didn’t want to have to figure out what to write about while staying somewhat on topic. So the obvious solution was to write about random things in the warehouse. Warehouse roulette! To make it fun and very random, I put all of the warehouse locations in a box, mixed it up and drew a location.   This location really could be anything. It’s one of the areas where we park incoming pallets that act like in-laws. Sometimes it’s a short stay,

 
Incorporating Music into Our Day
April 25, 2012 12:14 pm | by

Music is a big part of our day. We have dance parties, listen to music while cooking and sing songs before bed. I’m not sure we could get through our day without music! There usually comes a point in each day when the boys are bored (and therefore a little cranky) and we need something to shake everyone back into more positive thinking. You know what I’m talking about- when every suggested activity gets shot down and everyone wants to do something but no one wants to do anything. This is when we turn to dance parties. I have a

 
Tuesday Giveaway: Be flexible with Flip!
April 24, 2012 2:44 pm | by

Parenting requires a certain amount of flexibility. I used to think I was pretty flexible and easy going, until I had children. I have since learned how to be even more flexible than I ever thought possible. There are always those moments when you are loading up the car, getting everyone buckled in tightly and your potty training toddler decides they want to try again. How about the morning you have to be somewhere at a specific time and you can’t find the missing shoe that was just there an hour ago? When children are involved (especially toddlers), there is

 
Cloth Diapers and Mud

Cloth Diaper Creams

Now that spring has sprung (for most of us), it’s time to get outside and really enjoy the warmer weather. Unfortunately, spring often brings rain along with the warmer weather. And at least in my backyard, rain = mud. Some people don’t like letting their kids play in the mud- and it can be a little overwhelming, it terms of mess. But there are things we can do to make clean up easier on ourselves. For my older kids, who are (somewhat) less inclined to really roll in the mud, I usually just let them go as long as they

Reusable Swim Diapers
April 20, 2012 12:22 pm | by

Back when Vicki was 6 months old, I started taking her to swimming lessons. I prepared weeks in advance by registering her for swimming, buying her a bathing suit, and purchasing a reusable swim diaper. I was good to go. Everything went swimmingly (pun intended) for a few months, and we greatly enjoyed our weekly swim. Then it got cold and I dropped the ball and forgot to register for the winter session. By the time we went back to swimming, Vicki needed a new bathing suitand she had grown out of her swim diaper. As I was pressed for

 
Real Mom Talk: Cloth Diapers at Daycare
April 19, 2012 3:41 pm | by

So you’ve gotten over the learning curve of cloth diapering, and you’re loving the fuzzy bum on your new bundle of joy. It’s easy for you, because you’ve got your washing routine down and all your supplies where you need them! But what about when it comes time to hand off your little one to a different caretaker? Whether it is a family member, a babysitter, a Mother’s Day Out program once a week, or even regular daycare – talking to someone who isn’t familiar with cloth diapers can be daunting! After my son was born, I went back to

Tuesday Giveaway: Real Diaper Week!
April 17, 2012 1:28 pm | by

One of the many reasons that parents may choose to cloth diaper their baby is to reduce waste and help the environment. We know that with each cloth diaper you change instead of a disposable, you prevent landfill waste, but exactly how much is saved every day from local landfills? Last year, we introduced the Change 3 Things challenge. We asked parents and caregivers to change at least 3 cloth diapers a day instead of disposables. We set up a Facebook page to track the progress and even have a form available on the website so you can report exactly
