Family get-togethers can be awkward. Relationships that have evolved from childhood can have weird dynamics. People say things they wouldn’t normally say to a friend, colleague, or stranger right off the street. The differences between family members show clear rifts.

Then, the dreaded topic is brought up.

That’s right. Cloth diapers. (Why? What did you think I was going to say? ;-))

Obviously, people are dealing with some high emotions this year more than any other as the holiday season enters the radar. I thought I’d share some humorous and/or downright blunt talking points to use when a family member judges your choice to cloth diaper.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out a recent post about the Outdoor Adventure Collection. It does a great job of laying out the prints, colors, and style availability, in case you haven’t seen already.

Maybe it’s the fact that the prints are so incredibly Read More
