Cloth, Kids & Beating the System

Cloth diapers have officially made me want more kids. What is with that?

Ya, Hudson gets the main featured picture every post. He’s just too cute!!!

Before even delving into cloth I thought it would be hard and that I’d be begging for disposables. This couldn’t be further from where I’m at. I love it! it’s so easy and it’s not gross at all. (I kinda owe that to macnic who gave me her diaper sprayer <— must have!!)

My stash has WAY TOO MANY diapers. I love my applecheeks and use them almost exclusively.

Even Colin’s been on board. Coordinating outfits to boot!

When I pulled off Huds pants I was shocked that he had grabbed a matching dipe :P

Hudson seems to like it. He never complains and I know it’ll get harder as he gets older and his poops get more real but I LOVE that we don’t have to run to the store in the middle of the night for diapers and that everything has been so easy to do. I wish I knew about this when I had Logan.

Logan is excited

instead we just had this……waste!

Hudson also loves swimming! He’s been kicking serious baby swimming ass!Β He even went under water today. His enthusiasm makes me want to try again.

Char I even wore half of the bikini you made for me today πŸ˜‰ since the top of my doesn’t fit. Fyi never in my life have I ever been able to say my boobs were too big for something WINNING!

Ya, I just had a baby give me a break I don’t care that my tummy hangs over…..one pieces suck for moms b/c we always have to pee.

Hudson has been laughing and smiling non stop. However once the camera comes out. He stops. instantly.

oh. I’m sorry, there can be no proof that I like my life.

I blame my lack of blogging because no one knows a camera pose like Logan. I mean that kid even knows how to take a selfie. I think because he was raised on a blog.

All I had to do for this pic was say hey Logan want your picture taken....he came running

So never fear I will keep posting in the name of social media children! I think it’s important they know how to use instagram and take a selfie. I mean except that one time I saw a teenage boy taking on of himself at the dr’s I thought he was a loser. #loser

Logan turned 4 this weekend and as mentioned he wanted a minion cake.

Most people won’t tell you this be four year olds kinda suck because they can actually conjure up their own ideas AND explain them to you. So when Logan told me he wanted a rectangle cake with a huge minion head coming out of it I had job choice but to comply…

this ENTIRE thing (minus figures) is cake and buttercream. the eye and hands are cake too :)

BEST.CAKE.EVER.

It was delicious!

In other news I’m really enjoying my Tai Chi. Or as this illiterate girl wrote on the calendar”Tia chi” I like it better.

I even wrote “prospector” instead of “prosecutor” I have no idea where my brain is!!!

The first class I wore all this athletic gear and runners. Last night I showed up in my Thai pants and baggy shirt with no shoes. I LOVE that there’s a workout where pajama-esq clothing is actually preferred.

The class it late at night so this way I can literally come hone and climb right into bed.

I know. I’m a genius.

and last but not least…..in the summer I got my first ever speeding ticket.

I decided to fight it.

there were sooooo many of us sitting here waiting to plead our case.

So yesterday I had my early resolution meeting and they postponed my case and once they can prove that the speed limit is different than the ticket I am ticket free YAY!!!!!

I know, I’m awesome! The speed limit was what I showed it to be with my photos and such. So they just need to confirm and I’m off!

Logan wants to know what your favourite board game is?? he got sooo many!

I will always love clue! and I think candy land and trouble are awesome too!

have you ever got a speeding ticket??? how fast were you going??Β 

This was my first one….I was going 10 over…..or so they say πŸ˜‰Β 

Anyone else cloth diaper?? considering it?? would you looking back if you already have older kids??

What’s the craziest thing you’ve worn to a workout class??

You’d think it would be this Thai outfit but alas it was my booty shorts and heels when I did pole fit πŸ˜‰ damn, I can’t wait till I’m this strong again!!!

    • I don’t know what to really tell someone. IMO if you want to test out a bunch of dipes buy used. It’s the cheapest and you’ll get almost exactly what you paid back when you resell! YES people (including me) buy used dipes. Can’t say that for disposables πŸ˜‰

      As far as what we were discussing with the China dipes. Tons of people including Laura love Alvas so maybe get some of those.

  1. Nice to see you’re getting some use out of half of your bikini. But I’m confused – isn’t it winter over there and like a million degrees below zero?

    • Thanks Char! I can’t wait to use the other half πŸ˜‰ and it is winter and freezing here but we live close to a rec centre and all three of us are in swimming πŸ˜‰ so it’s inside.

  2. I’ve gotten a few speeding tickets. My husband has gotten several and gets out of almost all of them! I’ve never gotten out of any of mine. :(

    • ummmm I didn’t really learn. I originally googled recipes for icing now I’m a pro at making it πŸ˜‰ then I normally buy cake box mix and for the artist creativity….I think I just had that naturally. Usually if I can’t figure out how I’ll make something work (because we never use fondant b/c I hate the taste) Colin has some great ideas of how we can do something πŸ˜‰

  3. Ummm…I was thinking you look awesome in your bikini bottoms from Char!!!
    I’ve gotten a few (more than a few actually) speeding tickets – little fact of interest, if you are going more than 25 miles over the speed limit you can’t fight it!!! (this was years ago before kids!!)
    Love board games – glad your little one is into them!!!

    • Aw thanks Kim! I am still so weak and I know it’ll take lots of work to get back where I was. But for 13 weeks post baby I feel great πŸ˜€

      LOL 25 MILES! that’s fast lol

  4. Im no where near having kids (if matt has his way), but you have me really thinking about cloth diaps. What is the brand you use? Do you use them exclusively?

    • I don’t use one brand exclusively but I use Applecheeks about 90% of the time :) I LOVE THEM!!! I love that they come in a 2 size system and that they fit from newborn to potty. I like a whole whack of things about them….I could go on forever πŸ˜‰ I also like my Bum Genius freetimes and a few other randoms. Heather you were made for cloth diapers….I can just tell πŸ˜‰ so go have babies already!

  5. Even though it takes forever to play, my favorite board game is monopoly! You are rocking the bikini! And my mom used cloth diapers on me, so I guess I would consider them for my own kids.

    • My mom used cloth on me too….though she was completely against it now lol but Cloth has come a long way…..it’s basically like a disposable you can wash. So EASY!!!
