This reminds me of a story that sort of applies. I used to CD, until we moved a lot and I still think its best but I had some issues where I coudn't keep up with it.
Anyway fast-forward to now.... dd is in the process of potty-learning.... and I had a roommate that was also doing childcare for me. Well dd had an accident... pooped in her panties, got it all over her pants, etc. My roommate threw out dd's panties and pants!! Took them down to the dumpster.
I came home and she told me about it... turns out they were my favourite pants of dd's. I was like.... um.... roommate? I used to cloth diaper dd, I will wash those pants. She said something about how she didn't want to wash them and thought it was gross to put them in the washer. I was like... um, yeah, I'm going to wash them. I went down to the dumpster, found them in a bag on top, and brought them upstairs and washed them. :P
