Finally met my first CD out in public!

We decided to try a new grocery store yesterday afternoon. It's not quite a co-op, but an "employee owned" store, whatever that means. well we were walking down a center isle, and I almost ran over a little baby boy who crawled out from behind a stack (not her fault, her DS just took off like a shot, she was quickly chasing after him).

So she picked him up, really embarrassed, I gave her the courtesy smile and noticed that he had a giant poof ball behind him! Then I noticed that mama looked rather crunchy, and he was wearing booties with peace signs on them, THEN I noticed that she had a bunch of earth friendly product in her cart "7th gen stuff, etc" so I took a stab in the dark and broke the ice and said "He's adorable (segway).. do you cloth diaper?

At this point I was either expecting to be slapped, or get a confused look, but she actually looked kind of shocked and said YES.

We talked for a few min, she recognized the Amber Teething Necklace and asked if DD "used it" ever, so I explained to her how it's not supposed to go in the mouth blah blah.. but anyway, I was shocked to finally meet another fluff butt (especially in Milwaukee).

Gotta flaunt your CD's Every time you're out and about make sure they're visible! All though, most people aren't crazy like us, and prob wouldn't be as excited to see another CD baby.

We have a problem, remember?
