Susan from Ami Mental is someone I have been following since my first NaBloPoMo quite a few years ago. When one of my invisible friends asks me to post something, then I typically do. I’m not sure how easy to see these are, but there you go. The rabbit is mine from growing … [Read more…]
Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links. The last few years, owls have been ‘in’. During a conversation with my ‘invisible friend’ Mindy The Inquisitive Mom last year we discussed the possibility of foxes to be the ‘next big thing’! Looks like we were right! Which of these foxes is your favorite? I remember … [Read more…]
This was my initial blog posting, well the 2nd day anyway, where you first learn about ME, before kids… bwah ha ha. I think I’ll read some more later and share some gems. I was a year from being pregnant then, and had NO IDEA how soon that was all going to .. implode. It’s … [Read more…]
All of the methods I’m describing below work for short term storage, too. Truth telling time? A lot of my diapers go from laundry basket to bum without much stop in between. Even folding a full load of flats and stuffing pocket diapers only takes 7 minutes (yes I timed it) so it doesn’t add … [Read more…]
Last week was EPIC as far as cloth diaper drama. From shaming and dragging people’s kids into it, to outright bullying and internet policing by manufacturers. I’ll say this much, the cloth diaper world was the last place I would have expected to see this all go down. So, for a little lighthearted fun, I’ve … [Read more…]
You probably wouldn’t know it if you know me ‘online’ but I’m a huge introvert. And nerd. I’ll save that for another post though. As the 3rd and final child, only girl and complete shrimp of the family, I was often overlooked. My mom listened to my opinions, but being so outnumbered I gave up … [Read more…]
It’s been a week since I posted. Sheesh. I did write a post for a different blog though. It’s part of my ‘reaching out’. You see, with my 3 ring circus and how the winter has been, I’m feeling the pinch of being a stay at home mom right now. Because I’m really staying at … [Read more…]
“your donation helped a family today. 🙂 Thank you” …and tears filled my eyes. Someone with a new baby is going to be using our hand me downs, hand-ups, and will hopefully be able to better their lives because of it. Pure joy.
Just another reason I love my invisible friends — Susan tie dyed some items for us and they arrived at Christmas time. There’s some onesies, tshirts, and some newborn sized prefolds that she dyed to be fancy burp cloths for us! Definitely something I appreciate!
READ THIS AND THEN COME BACK! This was the inspiration for my post today. That and a cool ‘gift’ that our church suggested we give a few years ago to our local food pantry. I love the idea. It’s so simple, so easy, and it doesn’t hurt (that much)…. In this ever present lingering time … [Read more…]
