Here's what I look like (I hope, I'm not very good at this at all):
Did that work, lol?

I got you beat - I am 42 and had my first (and only) child just 2 months before my 40th b-day!!! oh, and I feel every bit of it ouch.
I think a lot of older moms that cloth diapered in the 50-60's because there was no other choice did not have the tools to do it properly. I know my parents had to wash in an apt complex or laundromat and I suspect that it did not do a good job as my mom tells stories of never ending diaper rashes and boiling diapers on the stove. Washers are more effective now and detergents have improved so things have changed.
I wonder if most of them were bleaching and wet pailing too which could take a lot of the fun out of it for me lol.
edited to add that I remembed the moon landing - we set up the tv in the living room and my mom kept us up for it so we could tell our grandchildren one day!

I will now start taking guesses at how old I was when I had my first, lol.
ETA: I think I look pretty crunchy. I've been told I "look the part". And I guess I am the odd one out, almost everyone I know irl cds and baby wears and doesn't vax and bfs (extended and tandem...)etc
