Talking Funny how things go.......

So we are going on a 5to 6 day trip to tennessee to visit my dh's grandmother who is like 92 years old. She hasn't seen the kids since my ds was a baby and now he is almost 4. We also really want her to see the baby since she is named for her and we aren't sure how long gram will make it. SOooooo, we were talking about hotels and car plans the other night with mil (who is coming along) and I said I need to find a hotel with a washer dryer service available. MIL freaks out and say "you're not seriously gonna do that on the vacation are you"?

Well, ya! I mean I use mostly prefolds and a couple fitteds here and there- it can't hurt much to take em along and I think it's better for her tush!! kwim. It's weird cause dh was a cloth baby so I didn't expect that kind of response. So anyways, I got a phone call yesterday and it was grandmother in law and she starts telling me how excited she is that we are coming down and that she can't wait. THen, she says, "I am so glad you are making the effort to use cloth diapers with your baby, even on the trip. It shows what a good mama you are to put up with the hassle and inconvenience to do what's good for your baby." She had me grinning from ear to ear!!!! I can't wait to see the arguements between her and her daughter about the fact that I am still "gasp" Breastfeeding my dd who will be 4.5 mo old at the time Crazy how that middle generation is so anti natural anything!!

so so true, it is so funny that when you breastfeed, when you look into homeschooling, when you look into cloth diapering, or really anything that is closer to nature or the natural rhythms of the home, it is our grandmothers who we have the most in common with!! Too funny. I wonder what that will mean for the future of our society??
