Cloth Diaper Group Etiquette - Cloth Diaper Addicts

Cloth Diaper Group Etiquette

I never thought that it would be necessary to write a blanket post on cloth diaper group etiquette.  After all, I’m certainly not a “Miss Manners” type and can throw down a little too easily.  Plus I’m forever saying that every cloth diaper group has their own culture with things to remember.  Dropping an eff-bomb, […]

Bleach Soak Cloth Diapers? I'll Pass

Bleach Soak Cloth Diapers? I’ll Pass

Let’s be realistic: the bleach soak for cloth diapers controversy has been done and redone a million times.  There are people who will bleach soak their cloth diapers on a monthly basis and “never have an issue.”  So I’m not going to tell you that if you bleach soak cloth diapers they’re going to burst […]

Cloth Diapers for Baby Dilly?

Jill Duggar Dillard shared an Instagram photo of herself and her husband… and shared that they were considering cloth diapers for Baby Dilly. Let’s be honest: I’m thrilled.  I can’t think of a better way to #makeclothmainstream than for them to be a regular staple on a reality show.  Of course, there’s more to it […]

Where Should You Change the Baby? Cloth Diaper Addicts Answers

Where SHOULD You Change the Baby?

My Facebook feed has been blowing up this morning.  The mommy groups, the cloth diapering groups, and my friends list are all talking about the same thing: a mother decided to change the baby at the table in a restaurant.  She and her family were booted. Okay, in all fairness, she didn’t pop her newborn […]

Baby Fever? Nope!

Baby Fever? Not Even a Little Bit

It’s funny.  I have friends that are talking about how they have baby fever.  I see people online make comments about instant baby fever after seeing cute baby pics.  But me?  I can’t relate.  I don’t have even a little bit of baby fever. We’re done. I see people wondering from time to time when […]

Six Weeks Pregnant and Bloated (TMI throwback post)

I am 6w3d pregnant. I currently look 6m3w pregnant. (6 months, 3 weeks.) I am quite, er, “well-endowed”. I’m so bloated that my stomach is sticking out beyond my boobs. I keep trying to go to the bathroom, and it takes 20 minutes to pop out a raisinette. My tummy is gurgling from gas. It […]


Abdominal Pain during Pregnancy #Throwback

One of the things I love about blogging is that I have a permanent record about how I felt and the things that I did.  It’s wonderful to see how far I’ve come.  When I was six weeks pregnant with Eudora, I woke up with abdominal pain during pregnancy.  I’d had a miscarriage prior to […]

Beaten Down to Exhaustion - Cloth Diaper Addicts

Beaten Down to Exhaustion

I spent the majority of July in Radio Silence.  I didn’t do much posting.  There was a very simple reason for that, and that reason still exists.  I’m exhausted.  I feel beaten down and depressed. Life with Norton is wearing me down.  For a while, I was able to make jokes about how we were […]


Don’t Put Me in a Box – An Open Letter to Amy Glass

As much as I hate to link back to Amy Glass and give her any more attention than she’s already gotten, there seems to be no other option.  Read her post before you read mine. Ms. Glass, You and I clearly have different ideas on different things.  And that’s okay.  But I will say that […]


A Brief Look at Canada Day History

Right now, my friends and family to the south of me are planning for their Fourth of July weekend.  We’re doing something similar up here in Canada, except for us, it’s Canada Day and it’s on July 1.  When I moved up here, about all that I knew about Canada Day history is that it’s […]

Funky Fluff 2.0 Review

For the sake of disclosure, I received this Funky Fluff Stay Dry 2.0 cloth diaper to review. I’m far too opinionated to let something like that influence my opinion! When Maman Loup let me know that the new Funky Fluff Stay Dry 2.0 was in need of reviewers, I jumped on the chance.  I really […]

Overcoming Obstacles with Kind Words, Gentle Hands and Listening Ears

Overcoming Obstacles with Kind Words, Gentle Hands and Listening Ears

Life with Norton has, in some ways, gotten harder.  He’s more defiant than ever.  He still uses “I peed in my room!” as an excuse not to go to bed or wherever else.  But things were out of control.  There was a lot of yelling, temper tantrums, throwing things, tears, and hitting.  Counting to three […]

Sometimes There’s Some Good (An Update)

I’ve been amazed at the amount of support that I’ve gotten (and helpful suggestions!) after writing about how there are times that I just feel so very defeated when dealing with my son.  Thank you.  I appreciate it.  A lot. The last couple of days have had some improvements.  Yes, there are still a lot […]

Early Reading Progress

Early Reading Progresses!

From the time I was pregnant with Norton, I was hoping to instill a love of books and learning. I just knew that we had to promote early reading as best as possible. But there was a bit of a stumbling block with that. Sure, I went to school to teach… but I wanted to […]

Toddler Language Development of the Girly Kind

When it comes to toddler language development, Eudora never ceases to amaze me.  Maybe it’s because I have the struggles of Norton’s language delay fresh on my mind, but regardless, I’m going to take a moment to brag on La Princesa. She amazes me.  Most mornings when I open her bedroom door, she’s still in […]

Chuggington vs. Thomas Wooden Railway

A lot of little kids are enjoying the wooden trains.  Who can blame them?  Trains are just awesome.  Still, though, when parents are trying to figure out how to indulge their child’s train love, they often find themselves wondering some big questions.  Chuggington or Thomas? While my friend Jo likes to tell me that I’m […]

Why Childhood Vaccinations are Important (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Why Child Vaccinations Are Important

There are a lot of different reasons why people do or don’t choose to participate in child vaccinations.  I’m not here to criticize them or bring up any logical fallacies.  I’m giving my opinions on child vaccinations, and maybe a little bit of factual information sprinkled in. That being said, think about what you learned […]


Hell’s Gate and Babywearing

  In honor of International Babywearing Week, I’ve decided to pull out some of my old babywearing posts.  My favorite places to wear my babies were always out and about, so it was a guaranteed adventure.

Infant Car Seat Clean Up

I knew when Norton started gnawing on the pull strap of his infant car seat that it was time to clean the darned thing.  Well, actually, I knew that it was time to clean Norton’s infant car seat when we had to put a receiving blanket under him in Cache Creek (3 hours from home) […]
