Maybe it’s just us, but we’re not really into the scary side of Halloween. I’ve read that it’s a lot better than it was back in the early 20th century (mayhem and super creepy homemade costumes!), but watching terrifying movies and putting out gruesome decorations that freak the neighborhood kids out just isn’t my idea of fun. I don’t know; maybe I’m just getting boring in my old age. 😉

But, you’d be surprised how many kids are brought up watching these things – and from an early age. I’ve already had a kindergartener tell me that his parents dressed his little sister up as Chuckie last year – and he totally knew who the character was. I’m still hoping he didn’t watch the movie, but ya never know.

So, just in case you’re like me (and if you do like the scary stuff, no offense meant! Everyone celebrates holidays … Read More

We thought we’d take part in one of this month’s School of Cloth link-up posts (sorry we missed the rest of the month, but we’re ecstatic about this week’s topic!). Sponsored by the Real Diaper Association, the School of Cloth is an annual, month-long event full of cloth diapering classes provided by participating Real Diaper Circles, Real Diaper Association businesses, and other CD experts with knowledge to share. Attendees of classes may receive certificates in cloth diapering subjects and will be entered into a drawing for chance to win a cloth diapering package and may even select a qualifying cloth diaper charity (like our favorite, Giving Diapers Giving Hope).

In other words, it’s all about spreading knowledge – and good charity – as far as possible. What’s not awesome about that?

This week’s topic is about cloth diaper advocacy, a subject that’s near and dear to our hearts … Read More

It may be Columbus Day for many of us, but it’s also time to start thinking about another thing: Halloween costumes.

We actually started discussing our son’s costume with him months ago. It’s not because we’re crazy for Halloween (it’s probably our least favorite, aside from the fun dressing up part). We talk about it for awhile because it’s a lot like the proverbial spaghetti on the wall: the more costumes we discuss, the greater chance that one will come up several times (and “stick”). Right now, a made-up superhero is in running for first place. So, “Super Hadley” it is.

Every year, I make and/or compile the elements of his costume. While sometimes this involves sewing or other intricate craftwork, my ultimate goal is to A) achieve a general idea of what our son (and, soon, our daughter…when she can talk) requests, and B) keep it as simple as Read More
