I got a thank you for CDing today :D

Around here I find that alot of people think I am really weird for CDing and I get alot of strange looks from people and lots of "why would you do that when there is Huggies?" And "they created disposables for a reason" and sometimes it gets so frustrating!! I am very proud of the fact that I CD, but it sucks to always be told how crazy I am!!! But today, while I was in Ottawa dropping my sister off at the airport, well we were actually at the hotel, a lady saw Kyla's new One Mad Giraffe custom and actually came over to me and told me how great it is for me to be CDing and how wonderful I am. She CDed her kids too! It was great to have someone tell me how good it is, instead of just how crazy I am!!! LOL!

Re: I got a thank you for CDing today :D

That's really cool!

When we were at the zoo yesterday, I was changing Isabel on a picnic table and a mom with two kiddos saw me and said "it's great to see someone else who uses cloth". Turns out she had CD'd all three of hers, even at the point where she had three (yowza!) in diapers.

Afterwards I felt bad for not introducing myself to her and seeing if she was a fellow Diaperswapper, too!
