Back In My Day

I got Ethan a mini candy bar out of my stash and he said, "I used to eat these when I was your age."

Oh. If mommy is the same age it must not be too old.

Easter baskets make the best hats.

There is Hope

After fighting like cats and dogs for days I was waiting for Ethan to freak out on Laina when she popped his balloon. When Laina asked if he was mad at her Ethan replied, "Of course not. It was just an accident." Maybe they do love each other after all.

"gDiapers, which stands for green diapers, consist of a washable, cotton outer 'little g' pant and a plastic-free flushable diaper refill. They are made of breathable material just like sports clothing. So, babies stay dry and happy and are far less likely to get diaper rash."

I have pretty much been using gdiapers exclusively for the past two days, and I think I finally have gotten the hang of getting them to fit correctly. We did have one leak but I don't know if any diaper could have contained it. Call me a greeny, but I feel way better flushing away a diaper rather than filling up the trashcan with them.
