really??? REALLY????....Seriously!

Today was the first day of cloth diapering is only 4:30 and WOW have I had a day. Before I continue I just want to make it clear that I think that these are all coincidences, nothing particularly to do with cloth diapers...hopefully things go a little smoother.

9:30 am: KENZIE JUST WOKE UP!!! WOW what a start to a great day!
10:45 am: Finish eating eggs, toast and jam for breakfast, put the first cloth diaper on, get dressed, leave to go run errands (we had to take some of the cloth diapers back from the store downtown.)
11:15 am: Look in the rear view mirror on the car and see EGG CHUNKS FLYING OUT OF KENZIE'S MOUTH as she is barfing everywhere, find a place to pull over and assess the damage.
11:16am: WOW it is worse than I thought and smells horrific-I almost barf.
11:16:30seconds am: Start using wipes to clean up the best I can. Questioning WHY DID SHE BARF????
11:17 am: While cleaning up I realized that ALL of the chunks of eggs were not chewed, when she at them, they slide right down.
11:18 am: Came to a few conclusions: 1st: Kenzie ate more eggs than I thought she did (HAHA) 2nd: Kenzie does NOT like chunks in her she gagged herself (this isn't the first time) until she barfed.
11:20 am: Stripped her clothes, of course DID NOT have an extra set, wiped the seat of best I could, and went to the diaper store.
12:00 (noon): Arrived at walmart to by a new outfit, I wouldn't usually do this, but I had A TON of errands to run and I could not go home.
12:00-12:15pm: Mom's, dad's, grandma's, kids, EVERYONE looking at me, some would say...WOW that is the perfect outfit, some would say ADORABLE, some would say, SO CUTE. Kenzie was in her cloth diaper, shoes, and a hair tie with a bow. Now, I am sure that these people thought that I would PURPOSELY dress my little girl in NOTHING to go shopping. I felt like super white trash. Yes I know it looked like that on purpose (especially) with the bow, but it wasn't.
12:45 pm: Finally got to my mom's house, gave Kenzie a bath, she pooped in her cloth diaper for the first time...interesting...and went to the mall.
3:00pm: Pooped again in her cloth diaper...even more interesting....but I SURVIVED!!!!!

Now I am home, thinking about the day. Don't get me wrong. I got A TON DONE that I needed too. Now to survive the rest of the night...and if I do...I will say that cloth diapers were successful for the first day.

It is offical! I ordered my first cloth diapers....AHHHH I am scared. They have already been sent. I finally decided the cute diapers, GroBaby, which is changing its name to GroVia. I went to a GREAT cloth diapering class at a local AWESOME baby store The Giggling Green Bean. After discussing with my friend Lindsey (who also does cloth diapers) and been thinking about it pretty much since Kenzie has been born, I AM TRYING IT! I am actually thinking that I am going to like it...I know that it more work but I do think it is better for a lot of reasons. I found GroBaby covers and inserts for 30% off and I would love to support the local business more but I got free shipping, not tax and the diapers were this time I am not buying from them (I am actually taking the things back that I did get because I did decide on GroBaby.) I will keep you posted if you would like...I still have to try it but I am hoping that I really like it.
We shall see....
You have to admit...they are SO STINKIN CUTE!!!!!
