My husband is making me mad!

When we started with cloth, I got 8 aplix covers (6 proraps and 2 bummis) and had 50 cpf delivered every wednesday. We were a pretty simple cloth diapering household. Then, jmunch started making trouble. Well, her and these women over on Livejournal who led me to fitted and websites and e-bay galore. Then, I had to have hemp and hemp prefolds topped with fleece.

My pay pal card was trembling from the work out.

Eventually I talked my hubby into ditching the service and buying our own prefolds. I bought two dozen from clothdiapersnmore. I bought a few fuzzy bunz. I bought a couple Wonderoos--I bought those from clothdaddy.. and I was not crazy about his customer service AT ALL.

Then, I met fitteds. I got three Sammy Sherpas. Then, I bought a new Cuddlebuns on e-bay for $8.

As my collection grew..very quickly as we've only been using cloth for two months... I decided that I didn't need so many prefolds, so I sold a dozen of them (they were still brand new) to a friend of mine. She also bought one of my wonderoos to try it out.

Well, in the last week, I've also ordered 4 cuddlebuns from wahmboutique, some more bummis Aplix because my husband likes them. I can't even remember everything else. Oh, and doodlebottoms is repairing one of my covers (it's fire engine red with dalmation print seudecloth lining) and that should come this week.

Okay, so see Sunday night my husband said he was changing the paypal password. He said he had had it ' up to here' with diapers. "They're for shitting on!!!!' he would say. But, well, and I am pretty certain I'm the only person here who does this.. or will admit to it at least... I played nice with his 'needs' on Sunday night. Because it makes him soft for a while. Well, now, see... he says that it's up to me to decide what we 'need' and 'don't need'.

Don't mess with me man!

I swear, he's like a father. He says, "well, you'll just have to make good choices!" Doesn't he understand!?!?! I can't make good choices! I've spent over $800 on diapers in a month.

And I have a full cart sitting at WAHMboutique and I was looking at SOS and really wanted the striped one. And and and...

He's not playing fair, because you know he's going to be mad at me if I DO buy more diapers, but he won't admit it. But, he didn't change the password. And I really want to have a bigger stack of pretty, all size matching cuddlebuns. And, and, and... they're pretty much one size, so they're an investment, right? right? right?

I think I need some help!

Hehehe. In other news, my baby started crawling and getting into everything.. and it's cloth related, because she wearing one in the picture! So it's alright to show off, right?Getting into stuff...

Sometimes I wish I went to work.. just do I could have SOMETHING to talk about with him. I swear, he comes home and talks about coding and software and electronics... then HE gets irritated with me for talking about nothing but diapers!

hahaha! That's how I got my husband to give me peace and quiet in the weeks after my daugther was born. He took her to the bank in a carrier when she was 6 days old.. everyone was gushing over him 'going out without mommy' and he was just done for at that point. I got like an hour every night all to myself for a while there!
