Dental work. I hate dental work. But what must be done, must be done. So I dropped off the two under-school-aged little people with a good friend of mine so that I could go and be tortured in peace.
My friend has a bunch of her own children, including two close in age to my youngest two. Mine are 6 months and 3 years and hers are 1 year and 3 years. So I knew the kids would have a pretty good time.
She has never been one to understand my love for cloth diapering. It’s just not her thing, and that is fine. To keep things easy for her I put Lily in a bumGenius and included both the bumGenius and a disposable diaper for any needed changes. I showed her my wet bag for the soiled diaper and told her she could just use a disposable diaper if Lily needed a change.
Imagine my surprise when I came back and she exclaimed, “That cloth diaper was just as easy as a disposable! I never imagined it could be that easy!” and then followed up with several more questions about cost and care of the diapers.
I’ll convert her yet!
