On Saturday I finally got around to giving a friend of mine a present. I ordered a custom AIO and matching dress (in the ADORABLE) coffee print from Baby Bloomrs. B is currently using disposables, but when I had talked about cloth she didn't shrug it off (we only talked about it when I went in for coffee though -- she works at a coffee shop... that's pretty much the only time I see her!). So I thought the coffee print was too cute and even if she didn't dig the cloth she could use the AIO shell as a cover-up for another diaper.<br><br>
Well, later that night I got a call from a girl I graduated with (her MIL owns said coffee shop... she used to work there as well which is how we started becoming friends of sorts.. though in high school we were anything but!).. anyway, she said she saw the diaper I gave B and wondered where I got it... because she's been using pfs and was wondering about what else was out there.<br><br>
Do you know what this means?!? Somebody In Real Life that lives in my town also uses cloth diapers!! She's not into the whole 'scene' such as most MDC mamas here, but I'm training her <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I told her about a lot of the different options (pfs, fitteds, AIOs, pockets, etc) then about the different types of covers and everything. It was just So Much Fun to talk diapers with somebody who was really interested in them.<br><br>
AND, on top of that, B said she might be interested in some cloth as well!! Holy (cloth) Converts, Batman!<br><br>
Now I'm off to scour the tp and various places for some cheap pfs and maybe even fitteds and covers so I can get these girls into cds!!<br><br>
(phew.. that was long... I just cannot tell a short story... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> If you made it this far you get a gold star!)

That's great! I would love an IRL CD mentor. I live in Podunck, IL, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> and I've met no CDers here. All my AP and CDing friends are online, and they're the ones who converted me.<br><br>
Good for you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I live in a town of 5,000!! With five stoplights!! And still, I managed to find somebody using cloth ... While it totally blew me away, I bet you'd be surprised -- I was!
