Re: Early morning BSRB Weekend of waiting

Ok, I'm doing pretty good with the splurging I've done on the diaper cuts of my dreams and the Batik Bum set, and I'm a selling fool so I've got plenty of pp to replace the BSRBs that are going to be leaving my hands tomorrow. But . . . there are two woolie items that have been the holy grail of wool to me, and I will shamelessly accept spam for these two items. OR, if you happen to see them available somewhere, I would appreciate just posting it to the thread or dropping me a PM. Those two woolie items are scrappies and the goldfish colorway. At this time I am seeking shorties or capris/manpris (LOVE capris), and scrappies or goldfish shorties/capris would make my day.

Just in case you need to enable anyone

Re: Early morning BSRB Weekend of waiting

Hi ladies! We just got back from our ski/snowboard trip. It was so much fun!! I just read through the whole thread (phew, that's exhausting!).

My table towels just got here too, but I think I'm going to have to get a second roll as well. At least until we all get used to using cloth. I can't wait to try them.

Somehow I had missed hearing this story before, but I love it. We've said before that we have similarly serendipitous stories (try saying that three times fast), but it was so neat to finally hear yours in full.

I won't go into too many details, but DH and I are going to try and work things out. We aren't going to be living together for awhile, which I'm fine with ( he is going to be with us on his days off, and come to see the boys everynight after work ). He's just been so overwhelmed with alot of things ( bills, the business isnt' doing well ), and has become depressed. So we are going to work on him getting better, and then our marriage.
So sorry to hear you're going through this, but it sounds like you're making some great decisions and trying to work things out the best way for your family.

This is his first baby and he's never been through this before. I feel so sad for him.
So glad she's fine! That would be so scary.

But here's a few shots of that so you can all see. I used to be obsessed with diapers... now I have a wig collection.
Love it, Carly!! Thanks for sharing

But my local grocery does carry the G's so at least i would not have to go to far out of my way to get them if i decide to.

Here's my question: have any of you used them? Are they worth it? i also heard a mama on another board saying that she actually used Gdiaper inserts with her PUL covers, and even on top of the fleece in a pocket while traveling. Does that make sense? do you think that would work? if so, i'll just buy the refills and forget about the "starter kit". LMK what you all think. Maybe i should just suck it up and pack the cloth in the carry-on, but with my Diabetes supplies and a baby, there is just so much that i can fit into my carry-on bag, KWIM? TIA
Ugh...we tried gDiapers and I thought they were a complete pain. Messier than cloth since there are three parts to the system. Honestly, I'd choose disposables first, then cloth...and as a last resort, use the gDiaper inserts in a Thirsties cover or pocket. But I, personally, would use disposables

Re: Early morning BSRB Weekend of waiting

Ok, back from the ILs. It was just the girls and the kids left over there...all the men went out to watch the game. Before he left, DH said he would be leaving the bar at halftime. famous last words. He just sent me a text saying friends from high school just showed up. As long as he's up by 7pm tomorrow so I can go to yoga, I could care less.

But in all honesty, i'll probably just end up with some sposies Even DH is resistant to buying them, but at this point, if it will save me some packing room and hassle (since i am flying alone), i'll do it. I am totally worried about sposie leaks, though. X leaked out of everything but Huggies natural fit, and those are so dang expensive Plus, who knows if they will work on him now? That was two sizes ago!!

Poor X did not want to go to bed tonight. IDK if he could feel how nervous i am, as i run packing lists in my head and daydream about what tomorrow will turn out like, but he seems to know something is up. He cried hysterically when i changed him for bed, then pulled off in the middle of his bedtime bottle crying again! And now he's still whining in his crib. I was in there for about 45 min of the last hour, rocking him and calming him, but as soon as i put him in the crib, he would wake back up again . I hope he's not sick or anything. I guess i'll have to see how he is in the morning before i should really worry.

Ah, he's finally sleeping. THANK GOODNESS. Ahhhh. Now i get to go and take the garbage out and try to scrape the ice off the stairs so the pet sitter does not fall!
I'm sure X saw suitcases, etc. all packed up and knew something different was going on. Hopefully it was just him being 'in tune.'
It was 45 degrees today, and I spent an hour outside scraping ice off of the driveway (that DH never finished) and the back deck so I could open the door all the way. Fun times.

I would have never thought of that, either. Great idea!

It's just eat, eat, eat, but holy moly the boy is getting gigantic... his legs grew and looked skinny for a little while, now they're big and chunky.
Isn't it amazing how they suddenly grow like that? It seriously seems like it's overnight at times.
I don't think it's a coincidence that he hasn't had a bad wakeful period now that he's back in cloth.

Jenn--you know I love enabling, and will definitely let you know if I see any of those things.. I've been looking at wool on FSOT lately just to see what's out there. Feel free to LMK what size you're looking for & I will gladly PM if I see something.

Off topic, but I was actually scouring wool FSOT last night. I got a little weirded out when I saw a Hudson Hat that I knitted for another mama in a trade for sale. It kind of bugged me that I can't sell them for profit unless I get licensed, but someone else who owns it can.

Glad you had fun snowboarding!!
And, I have come to terms that when I actually do travel with C, I'm going to be using sposies, too. Just for the plane rides.

Oh, and I decided to pick up a couple of the Enrapture skirts/dresses. Anyone have one? I'm just not sure on what length to get. I have a tentative order in for one med and one long, thinking that I would need the long for a dress, but the medium if I just wanted to wear it as a skirt. I'm 5'6" if that helps. Any input would be appreciated. I just couldn't pass them up for the price. You can't even buy a nice skirt for that price.

Off to clean up a bit and hopefully get some knitting done before DH walks in the door.
I have been in & out of watching the game. I watched halftime because we're Bruce fans here....he was good.

Re: Early morning BSRB Weekend of waiting

Alaina, nice to have you back from your vacay We do have very similar stories, so thanks for reading my mini-novel. Glad you enjoyed it

And thanks for the advice about the G diapers. I am not going to get them. I mean, why am i going to spend more $ than i would on a pack of sposies on something that may just be more of a PITA anyway? I totally appreciate your input.

Personally i was not impressed with the absorbency of the g-diaper inserts, and i hated flushing them... i was always paranoid they'd clog the toilet. After one good pee, they would still be 'unused' in the back, but he'd pee again in the front and it'd just roll off and leak out of the diaper. At 40c a flushie, it's annoying to change them after every little piddle.

You know, since he's been back in cloth overnight, he hasn't had a bad wakeful period in the middle of the night. Coincidence? Who knows?

Yep. now i am convinced, it's sposies or cloth.

I am so glad D is sleeping better, and maybe it is the cloth... As for the growth spurt, we are going through the same thing here. DH might not recognize Xander after all the growing he has been doing this week.

I got in on the Enwrapture co-op and I ordered two mediums because it seemed to me that the long would make a full length dress but not be able to be worn as a skirt where the medium could be worn as a mid-length dress AND a skirt. I also looked at the inches . . . the long is 34"-36", and my inseam is like a 30", so I felt confident in getting the medium. I'm like 5'1" though, so you might need that longer inseam to get full length anything out of them. I don't know if that helped at all, but that's my reasoning for ordering two meds

I really didn't know how to measure. I measured from shoulder-ankle to get an idea of where the long would be for a dress, and it hit around mid-knee, which is what I was looking for. I have no idea if that's how I should be measuring, or how the length is affected when it's wrapped. I have a 32" inseam, so I guess I'll just go with a med and a long for skirt & dress respectively. For me, I'm more apt to wear something longer than shorter, so I guess I'm safe, even if it ends up down at my ankles.

Oh, and Sara--don't think I didn't catch you trying to enable me to buy the OBV minkee B4. I am saving my one and only B4 new size OBV for something that I absolutely CANNOT live without..and I haven't quite found that print yet.
