So, the first time we went to Canada w/Babu, we were using a mix of disposables and cloth: disposables while we’re out, and cloth while we’re at home (uncle’s house.) The next time we went to Canada, we were doing cloth fulltime. But, I damn near took my whole stash with us. But this time, I wanted to see if I can survive on just a dozen prefolds and a few covers. I wanted to test out the packing situation for when we do cloth diapers at Disneyland. (Eep!) Cauze, I’m planning on doing cloth diapers at Disneyland. And no, I don’t think it’s crazy.

I forgot where I got this little questionnaire, but I’ve been wanting to do it. I thought I hadn’t really had enough experience with cloth diapering when I first came upon this, but now I feel like I have been cloth diapering long enough to figure out what kinds I like. So, here we go! Continue reading
So, it’s been two days since the series finale of How I Met Your Mother. And to be honest, I’m still all kinds of butthurt over it. I mean, WTF, guys?! What were you thinking?!?! I’ve had a lot of time to think. And analyze. And think some more. And it’s still a bunch of bullshit.
Ok. What’s the show called? What’s the title? Oh, yeah. HOW. I. MET. YOUR. MOTHER!!! For 8 whole seasons, they teased us, they taunted us, and they made us wait to meet the damn mother. Finally, at the very end of season 8, we got to see her. And so, for the whole of season 9, it was all about leading up to the meeting of the mother! So exciting! So, I’m gonna let this crappy filler season slide. Because I’m sure everyone was hoping for an epic finale. Something that’s legen — wait for it — dary! Legendary! But, the finale was anything BUT! Ted spent 9 seasons telling his kids stories about the various women he’s been with (Hello?! I don’t think I wanna hear about my dad being a slut back in the day. I’m surprised they stayed for the whole story.) And season 9 was supposed to be about THE MOTHER. But, we were met with crappy filler episodes week after week. There were a couple that was ok, but most of season 9 was just crap. But, everyone was so eager to know just how Ted met the Mother! They had a whole season to devote to it! Instead, they devoted a whole season to Barney and Robin’s wedding. (Which, as it turns out, is a failure.) They downplayed the Mother and Ted’s meeting. And they even KILLED her. I just…*sigh
Let’s take a moment. Then let me just vent. Continue reading
Babu is growing. He learned how to roll over and he’s been doing that. And just recently, (about a month or so ago) he learned how to scoot. He’s been doing a funny little commando crawl. He’s gonna crawl for real soon.
I’ve heard about babies wanting to nurse every hour. Cluster feeding, was it? Is that what it’s called? Yeah. Something like that. There are days, even weeks, when your baby will want to nurse frequently. Today is one of those days. I swear, Babu would be off the boob and 15-30 minutes later, he’ll be looking for it. What?! Calm down, child! Continue reading
