Sleep. As parents, we’re all experts on it, or at least have tons of experience with it – coercing it, missing it, having it interrupted, and generally going without it. Just call us a sleep-obsessed lot.

We read endless books and articles about getting kiddos to sleep. There are a zillion opinions about what to (or NOT to) do when it comes to sleep training, bedtime routines, crying it out, co-sleeping… I’ve recently come to the realization that no matter what you do, it’s all a phase…and you’re bound to encounter  new one just around the corner. In our older son’s case, just when you think it’s safe to call it a success, there comes regressive nightmares and a sudden fear of the dark.

It’s officially Fall!!! While, for a vast majority of us, it’ll take awhile before the leaves start falling, there’s nothing like the visual of deep, rich colors and the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot. It’s practically why pumpkin spice lattes were invented (or so I assume).

It’s easy to assume that cloth diapering is a lonely game. While it may be picking up steam in the #makeclothmainstream realm, a lot of us are often the only ones in our families treading the modern cloth diaper path. Maybe you live in a rural area with few other cloth diapering parents around, or simply don’t seem to know anyone else who has made the same choice.

Of course, it may not be like this for everyone. While my immediate family generally doesn’t cloth diaper (well, my mom did, but that was a different time ;-)), I have come to realize that I have at least half a dozen friends and acquaintances whom I can call on if I have any questions or concerns regarding my stash or its use. This alone makes me proud that we really ARE making cloth mainstream – one family at a time!

But, … Read More
