So, I have been just grumpy the past few days... so I needed to do SOMETHING to feel better!! I have been wanting more cloth pads (I have 3 regular HHs and 3 overnight/PP HHs) but that isn't enough obviously... so I asked DH if I could get some more since we are on a SUPER tight budget and he said yes!!!! I order them today I don't know if the overnights will be enough for immediately PP but it should give me a good stash to mostly avoid sposie pads and definitely a good enough stash for normal periods! Is it sad that ordering menstrual care products made me feel better??

When I originally got my cloth pad stash, my dh thought it was really weird how excited I was. I think his words were, "I don't really care what you use, I just don't want to see or hear about it" I understand your excitement!

I'm glad someone understands my excitment!! DH thinks cloth pads are gross but seriously? He isn't the one wearing them!!

I bought a little outfit for the baby yesterday and we absolutely do not need anything for this baby...I was out with a friend and couldn't resist this little organic summer outfit. It is true that we don't have any short sleeve onesies in small sizes (my son was born in Dec.) so...

I hadn't thought of it as retail therapy but it is true...let's hope this little one doesn't wait too much longer though! I resisted buying something for myself but said if the baby isn't here by 40 weeks maybe I would treat myself to something...yikes!

Buying more pads is a great idea though...I may just have to consider that a necessity item!
