Honestly, I'm just laughing at this.


My husband is doing military service this summer, so Baby and I are staying with my parents. I come home from errands to find my father has intercepted the laundry and is in the backyard hanging my load of diapers on the clothesline.


I thank him, and he says he is trying to "see if the sun won't bleach them back".


I look at the already-bleached diapers--they look nice and white.


I then realize he is referring to my collection of unbleached cotton diapers and their tell-tale tan/beige shade.


Took me ten minutes to make him understand they came that way.  And the man is so intelligent intellectually.


Anyway, it made my day and I wanted to share.
