So I went to Wal-Mart and bought some White cloud disposables...we don't have any natural stores nearby so the Tushies and 7th Generation aren't an option. I washed several loads of laundry today- including the last of the diapers. I just want to say how WONDERFUL it feels to have all the diapers washed, dried and folded- and even put away! I re-organized the changing table (which was quite theraputic, thank you!) And cleaned the nursery completely. Of course, I am no where near being done cleaning the house- but Dallin will be back in cloth very soon. I truly do hate disposables. The smell, the trash, the waste...but this break has been a blessing. Mamas, if any of you are contemplating taking a break, please do. And don't feel guilty! Buy a small package of diapers and take that break! I am not sure what is going on with AF, but its been really bad. And I REALLY needed this. Thanks for all the support.

I have taken breaks and don't feel guilty at all (ok, maybe a little) but mama, you gotta do what you gotta do!

I ditch out of the family when dh visits his parents w/ the kids...I stay home and get to do the organizing at a nice pace. I always feel better, even if I worked hard all day on a day off work.

Glad you are feeling better.

Doesn't that feel nice??? I know the feeling I took a month off before Liv was born and sposied Maddy and it was very relaxing (if incredibly smelly... man those dipes STANK!) It felt so good to put the fluff back on her bum when I was ready.

thanks for checkin in!
