Just smile, that’s what I should have done. Instead, I said, “you did what?!”
My sweet husband has taken over morning diaper changes for Sterling. Not for any other reason really besides the fact that if left up to me poor Sterling would be in the same diaper till mid-morning when I suddenly realized I had forgotten. I blame that on having a newborn.
For the past couple of weeks Sterling has worn Flip disposable inserts to bed. I haven’t found the time yet to strip his diapers…yes the ammonia has returned. I’m starting to feel like a not-so-expert cloth diaper blogger.
Anywho, the other day (mid morning) I remembered Sterling’s diaper and asked Michael if he threw the inside away.
With the cutest smile from both him and Haley he said, “well, it looked like you could just flush it. Kind of like a big wipe.”
“You flushed it??”
The good news is there wasn’t a toilet mess for me to clean up. Apparently, it did flush. Obviously, this is not recommended! If he tried it again I’m sure the results would be much messier.
I didn’t hear the story correctly. I was just informed that it did in fact get stuck! Michael had to double bag his hand and pull it out of the toilet. That’s so much funnier!
WAIT!! Michael just corrected me again (this is the 2nd edit). He stuck his bare hand in to retrieve the insert and (his words) pulled out the long rat then put it in the double bag. Okay, now that is much funnier!
I should have just smiled and said thank you. After all, I wouldn’t want him to think I didn’t trust him with that job ;)
In other news, did you know that your HE FL machine probably has a minimum water temperature at which it will operate? Oh, yes. Mine is 59*.
Do you know what that means if your machine is in the garage and a rare super cold front hits south Texas? It means this mom of 5 (2 in diapers) couldn’t do laundry for 2+ days!
This is one incidence that my cloth diaper addiction is totally justifiable. Camden is down to about 10 diapers now.
You should have seen how full my massive capacity machine was. Thankfully they are all in the dryer now. I was afraid the cold would set in again before I was done resulting in another mid-cycle shut down.
This was something I never considered (and probably won’t need to again) when we bought a FL. Have I mentioned how much I dislike the cold?
