Why is the speed of toddler so FAST in the unhelpful directions and so s...l...o...w... in the helpful ones?

We stopped cloth diapering for so long I don't think we have anything that will work for Val's booty. Potty training it is, then. Can someone come potty train for me? I don't know why I'm putting it off. She'll probably amaze me and be done in a week or something. Even though most of our house is cold we'll be going back to cloth diapers soon. Diapers are just so dang expensive. Especially with two kids.

I've been looking at gDiapers. The liners are expensive but some friends use prefolds unless they're out on errands or church or something. I've always wondered what you CDing people do for church childcare. I go to church three times a week (wow, how pious am I?) and have always put her in disposables for that, but I wish I didn't have to. Are gDiapers the answer? I'm drawn to the adjustable sizing. There are just three sizes that will fit everything. I'm also a cloth diapering junkie.

In other news, I am sitting down eating Love Potion 31. All is right with the world.

I think I finally figured out how to feed my baby in a way that keeps her tummy happy and gas-free. Good thing, too, since she's two and a half weeks old. She remains the cutest baby EVER. I'll have to post pictures later because she's calling me.

  1. I've never actually gotten to do this...but when I was nannying the mom had a book called "How to Potty-Train Your Child in Just One Day" which I read and was excited about trying...however, she has a list of things to check for in your child to see if they're ready for their "potty-party," after which they should be mostly potty trained. I hear it has good success. And I'd also love to hear how it turns out when someone I know tries it since I won't be able to for quite a while ;)
