I am hopeful that this considering cloth series is somewhat helpful for those navigating the diaper scene. I must admit, there are many terms to learn and lots of shorthand in the diaper community. I do not even want to get into how long it took me to figure out what the term "sposies" meant. Its embarrassing in hindsight. But, my mistakes might just be your gain!

Laundry is one of life's great companions. Regardless of how much or little clothing you own, laundry is always there for you. As you journey through life the items change but the laundry remains constant. Sometimes you take it out for a trip to a Laundromat, other times you visit friends or family together, and if you are lucky, you are able to care for it in the comfort of your own home. If you are considering cloth diapers for a wee human in your life, your laundry may be a stressful topic.

I am a highly opinionated and sassy mother of three and wife to one. I hope you enjoy reading about my efforts to tackle the infuriating obstacles of life using straight talk and humor.
