Yeah, I was really surprised. I've been sewing diapers for close to a year now, and my brother is very business minded and has been trying like crazy to get me to go into business with my dipes. He says that whenever I'm ready, he'll help me. I keep telling him that it's really a lot of work and I've got enough on my plate right now. Anyway, even though he's been such an advocate in that way, I thought it was more money-focused. He's so prissy. His clothes have to be name brand and just right. He'll spend tons of money on a shirt b/c he's got to have it. He spends more time on his hair than me and gets grossed out pretty easy. We all (including himself) call him a metrosexual; that's pretty much what he is.
So, I just never expected him to use cloth on his kiddos. My mom thought it was awful at first and every time dd got a rash she told me I should just switch back. She gave up after awhile and now enjoys seeing Scheeli's new diapers, but I don't think she would cloth diaper if she ended up raising a newborn today. I don't think she would try to convince my brother not to cloth diaper though. She's become pretty accepting of it now. Anyway, I just thought it was so cool.
