the great cloth diaper change!

I was sooooooooooooo incredibly stoked when I woke up this morning and g was feeling better. I had been kind of up and down about going to massachusetts for the great cloth diaper change over at sustainablebabyish|sloomb… g was sick, I was going to have to go alone, and it’s quite the drive… two and a half hours one way with a six month old… not to mention gas is a whopping 4.15 a gallon here! but this morning… he woke up smiling. no fever. back to regular little grayson. it was on! we were going! but then… it took was felt like three years to get me and him together… usually I’m an “always be prepared” kind of mama… my diaper bag is always packed and ready to just yank off the wall… but lately I haven’t been going anywhere… so, um yeah.

then once I finally got the two of us in the car I realized… john has the gps in texas! so I had to go back inside and print directions… which took forever because the printer and computer were both powered down… holy moly. but I still had faith. I jumped in the car and noticed my gas light on… I mean really?! seriously?!

once I got gas… I took it as a sign from the big man upstairs that I should not be going… because it started to pour rain. I mean POUR. the visibility was crap… and I don’t know if you’ve been to CT lately but people drive like crazies around here… and there was no way I was going to drive in that endangering my kiddo… to miss the event. no can do.

with that… we ran over to target… grabbed some (gasp!) formula… and headed back home… I will still be changing his diaper at noon… but I am not gonna lie… I am incredibly bummed we don’t get to participate in such a monumental event for cloth diapering awareness…

but sometimes… you just gotta do what you gotta do…

and with that… we’re back to cleaning for my mom’s visit… she’ll be here on tuesday and I can’t wait! toodloo…
