Hooray! Summer is officially upon us. For those in the American Southwest, I apologize for my excitement; I know it’s beyond stiflingly hot out there. Sorry!

But, as an educator, I am stoked to be home to focus on my family and writing projects this summer. I’m even happier that our little girl will be sporting a fluff bum 100% of the time.

So, why are cloth diapers perfect for summertime? I’m sharing my favorite reasons today.


The Only Wardrobe Baby Needs – Aside from some safe sunscreen and a floppy hat, a cloth diaper is all the wardrobe you need to worry about on those super hot days. Could you do this in disposables? Sure. But, the fabric and downright adorableness trump sposies any day, right?

Father’s Day was kind of a bittersweet holiday in our household growing up. My mom was raising her four children alone after losing her husband to cancer, so it obviously brought up those empty feelings for us all year after year. Luckily, we had a grandfather who filled the role as best he could, so we took any of those negative feelings, along with our handmade gifts from school, over to his house to celebrate the day every year. Watching him turn over our precious, clumsily-made items in his hands with such joy and pride made everything better.

fathers-day-ideasFast forward 30 years and I now not only have a wonderful stepfather to celebrate, but a super loving father-in-law and, most importantly, my husband. I wasn’t sure what a role of “father” was supposed to be – what it really looked like – but he has surpassed any and all expectations. … Read More
