come out come out where ever you are...
<who misses her "old" friends.
Where art thou?
Remember the days when the friday SOS stocking gave us a reason to get out of bed, and FCB had weekly stockings?

Remember when there were only a handful of wool soakers to be had, and if you had one you were "ultimate hyena?"
:LOL
I miss my mommas, oh where oh where can you be?

I'm not really a hyena, but I do remember the Friday SOS stockings. I almost scored once.

Not a Hyena either but definitely remember those days. I can't believe Righteous Baby has stuff sitting in the store either. And you can even find Fuzbaby stuff instock!

I wasn't really a hyena in the true sense of the word but I've been here for a long time. I remember when FCB had all of their diapers for $10 and they still sat in the store for a few days. :LOL Boy I wish it was like that now. I mean I'd pay full price but to have time to read discriptions and really pick what I'd like instead of the buying frenzy I'd be in heaven.

Yes, Righteous Baby!!! What the heck is instock doing at Righteous baby?!?!? That blows my mind.
I remember when I was pregnant strolling into Fluffy mail one day and picking up a couple of FCB covers and leaving another one sitting there. I also easily got a BBB soaker while pregnant. Crazy days.

Shelly I think we are just old school. :LOL It seems to me that there is a whole 'nother generation of hyena with their favorite wahms. I don't know what half of the people here are talking about. I think its fabulous that we can go and get our favorites without a lot of stalking. I am still in shock that I can call Fuzbaby and custom order Easy covers and get them in less than 2 weeks. Insane!

i'm feeling left out here cause i'm not an old hyena but i'll chime in anyway. actually, i used cloth 4 years ago but took a 2 year hiatus between kids so i'm basically a newbie to the scene this time around.

it seems to me like there are just soooooo many wahms now offering really great products that it's sort of a buyer's market, ya know?

in years...LOL. Not a hyena by any means. I have one knickernappie, and two wool soakers. Tons of fb and prefolds and covers. So I guess I just responded because I'm old. :LOL I do remember the righteous baby stockings but never really put anything in my cart. I couldn't afford to. :

I have only been on MDC for about a year but I do remember that I went to Fluffymail site once and their were just diapers sitting there! I passed on them since I had never tried them before but of course I'm kicking myself. I also remember when you could waltz right over to Kiwi Pie and pick up as many covers as you wanted, of course that is when crazy me was thinking "who would pay $30 for a cover!" Boy I wish I had known then what I know now.

I remember when I was pregnant with DD, I CUSTOM ORDERED six SOS-got to pick fabric, inners, etc... and then decided I didn't like the fit on my newborn and by then she had gotten popular and was doing Friday stockings. I got almost 3X what I had paid for them on eBay and they had been used a couple times. I had put a low starting price on them, they were just that "hot" at the moment.

I remember the chaos over the strawberry fuz garden.

I'm here. I look at who is online and I don't recognize anyone. I've seen a lot of people come and go. I paid $115.00 for a Honeyboy once. Oh, the old hyena days. Carrie is making me an appliqued Sugarpeas for the Buster. I cried to her how much I missed diapers made by her. Remember Mollytogs? I was just thinking how different diapering the Buster is. I remember calling Laura and ordering a bunch of Elbees and a pants and wooly bullys over the phone. They came a few weeks later.

At Thanksgiving, I was filled with nostalgia over the sale at Fluffymail last Thanksgiving when I picked up a few fitteds for CHEAP. Those were the days!

Remember Tuesday Bear stockings? When you COULD NOT get a soaker... just a soaker! Pants were IMPOSSIBLE, lol. What else... RBs were impossible, Kiwi-Pie was INSTOCK! Can you imagine???

OLD :LOL . I started lurking here in September 2003 when we began to CD my then 4 mo dd. I think I might have joined then but I mostly lurked (still do) and then I couldn't remember my user name so I didn't officially (re)join until December.
I dont think I ever reached hyena status but I did sniff around a bit after newbie/hyena extraordinaire JennInSeattle back then. ( ya Jenn)
I remember when Heather Sanders owned PunkinButt and how I bookmarked all her recommended sites for wool. Boy, did she have a terrific stash. I didn't have much expertise or $$ but I did have good taste.

I am still here

I remember when there was no First Class Baby and Kiwi Pie.

The big places to stalk were SOS, FMBG , and Sugarpeas.I could never get an SOS because she had this crazy cart and I would complain every Friday about it.And as soon as the notice would come through from Sugarpeas I would run over to find all the size 1's gone already.

I remember Heather as the diapering mod.She was fun because she was involved with all of our diaper talk.

I also remember so many mamas who don't post here anymore and I miss them all

...sigh...i miss wahmall. i miss stalking jody's honeyboy auctions. i never did win one when they were the most popular diaper out there going for $100-$200 a piece. i did finally score one about a year ago for $30 from jody.

i also remember cuddlebuns coming back & making a huge hit at wahmall. i remember sugarpeas when she just opened (back on the pp diapering board) and she couldn't keep stock for more than 2 seconds.

sigh...

Well I'm still around after a hiatus between babes. I remember ordering SOS custom too. I too still have Fuz diaper garden reservations. I remember when Heather used to mod and post a lot before her son was born. Also when Carrie of Sugarpeas hung around here sometimes.
There were fewer diaper choices around. I think actually more people cd now and it's a growing market (hopefully that keeps happening).

Mama to 12, and 9 and 3.

I started coming here just at the very end of all that, I think...I remember crazy SOS/Sugarpeas/RB/FMBG stockings and all that. I think that Oceanone is right: there are more wahms around. The whole wool craze has taken over - that's the hyena stuff these days. And now even the wool market is getting kind of saturated - I mean the MM/BBB/KP stuff all goes in a heartbeat, but there are a lot of knitters out there! Which of course is great - more mamas making money at home.
Anyways I'll go hide under a rock...I have never been much of a hyena!
