I’m feeling very cinematic today. I have a great TV that we acquired in an amazing way yet, we don’t watch TV. I love movies but, with 4 children and no great movies coming out these days we never watch them. So, why would I feel cinematic?
Last night as I laid in bed after getting up with Sterling I began brainstorming blog post ideas. Slowly I drifted off to sleep dreaming about pocket cloth diapers. Which was slightly strange since I don’t use pockets.
As the dream unfolded I was writing the most beautiful blog post comparing my experiences with pocket cloth diapers to different movie genres.
The idea wasn’t too far fetched.
In 2005, when I began cloth diapering I loved pockets. Happy Heinys were the most awesome cloth diaper … after all it was the first cloth diaper besides prefolds and covers I’d ever heard of.
Pocket cloth diapers were the perfect solution for my 15month old son’s nighttime flood. I could pack in the inserts and there would be dry sheets in the morning. My pocket cloth diaper love story continued for many years.
When Paisley was born I had by then discovered a vast array of cloth diapers. With her, my favorite pockets were Blueberry, Preston Pants, Thirsties pocket aio and GADs. All of them fit fantastic and never leaked. As long as I stayed away from suedecloth Paisley never saw a pocket cloth diaper she didn’t like.
But, of course as many cinematic love stories go, there was a plot twist. My plot twist had a name, Sterling. No, he didn’t stop at the homebirth turned hospital birth. He came out longer than the “average” baby.
Being long isn’t normally an issue but when you start finding out that many diapers aren’t suited for babies with a long rise it gets annoying.
My love story is currently “B” movie. Is that a genre? You know, the movie that drives you crazy because it could be so good but the writers miss the boat on every point. With Sterling I’ve tried Rumparooz, Apple Cheeks, Anne Marie Padorie, GADs and Thirsties pocket aios.
Rumparooz are too short, Apple Cheeks leave huge marks on his thighs, AMP have a funky snap down, GADs leak and side snap tabs get poo on them and as I mentioned in the last post I ordered too big in the Thirsties pocket aios.
I so very much want the Rumparooz to be my love story. I have 2 I need to sell yet I keep them just in case Sterling shrinks.
I could add a few more characters to my movie to manipulate the ending but I’m thinking this movie needs to end for now. There’s always a sequel to “B” movies and sometimes they end up a winner ;)
AS YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED, ALL ABOUT CLOTH DIAPERS IS UNDER GOING SOME MAJOR UPGRADES!
PLEASE BEAR WITH ME AS MY HUSBAND AND I TWEEK IT TO IT’S FULL POTENTIAL IN OUR “SPARE TIME”.
