First, let me start by saying that I LOVE my new Smartipants diaper! I will definitely be writing a review on it later today or tomorrow... so watch out for that!

This weekend, I headed to my hometown for some fun with a friend I met on my favorite
parenting website. We sadly did not get too much time together, but it was a great experience. My little boy loved her!

My trip, which was supposed to just be an afternoon/overnight, extended into a 3 day 2 night stay. Did I mention my hometown is a beach? =P The entire trip, Liam was in cloth diapers. I had no clue that I possessed enough diapers to accomodate this. But apparently I do - though I did wash (in a washer and dryer, that is a FIRST for me and my dipes!) overnight the last night.

My top moment: realizing that little bug had a wet diaper in the middle of the nice restaurant we were in, causing him to scream his head off. The torrential downpour outside coupled with the realization that the diaper bag was in the car put me in a bind. By some stroke of luck, I had a single prefold in my purse, and he had a cover on already. However, here are my confessions:

1. I have never used a prefold for anything other than stuffing a diaper or little gPant.
2. I own zero pins or snappis.
3. I do not know how to fold a prefold.
4. My poor baby....:

Little Bug ended up with a prefold shoved into the cover, sticking out everywhere and... oh man, it was just a mess. I thank my lucky stars that he didn't pee the whole rest of the time we were dining, because that was a disaster for sure.

I guess I should purchase some snappis and learn to master the art of the prefold. I have just been terrified of them, and have stuck with fitteds and All-in-Ones.

In diaper news:

The Rumparooz I ordered got switched with another order the same night. By some crazy stroke of luck, I received my friend's pink diaper and she received my Lil Monsters print. Just glad it wasn't a stranger or my adorable monster dipe would be lost. So I will hopefully be trying out this awesome-looking diaper and revewing in the next few weeks, once we have mailed these diapers out to each other.

Sewing is on a hold, I left my sewing machine at my "mother in law"s home a few weeks ago, hopefully I will get it back soon. My good friend over at Loving My Life as a Mommy and Wife, Madison, embellished some PFs and I'm jealous. I need to give it a try.

I will leave you with this adorable picture of Li-bug and my friend Nicolette on the beach:


  1. Oh dear. So far Benjamin hasn't made a scene in a restaurant yet. I'm sure it will happen sooner or later!! Liam is adorable!!

  2. Almost every time we go out to a restaurant little baby M ends up crying. So I understand your frustration, if any :). I was terrified of prefolds at first. But once you do it, they're so easy. And really, with the right cover you'll never need snappis or pins.

  3. Oh my freaking gawd NICO is so effing hot, and Liam is such a dollface! Love you!

  4. prefolds are easy once you get it down. but you must get some snappis!! :0) they work so easily!! :0)
