Our Green Accomplishments in 2011

With the birth of LA in 2010 and the use of cloth diapers I began thinking more and more about the other things in our lives we needed to change in order to make our family more green. There were a lot of changes that needed to be made. Cloth diapering was our main change in 2010 and once that was accomplished there were countless changes to be made so I thought I would start this blog and share the experience with you all. My goal with this blog … [Read more...]

Kelly Wels’ Changing Diapers – The Hip Mom’s Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering Book Review

I started using cloth diapers with my son in 2010 and I wish I had Kelly Wels' Changing Diapers book back then! When I started, I had one online friend who I got all of my information from - don't get me wrong, she was an amazing help. There were times thought I felt I was bothering her too much and would have loved to have a book to reference.

Christmas Gift Registries?

So, I've just heard that the big thing this year is a Christmas gift registry. Seriously? People are registering their CHILDREN for gifts! I am almost outraged by this. Personally, we have never bought our children many gifts for Christmas because we know our parents get them gifts and our siblings get them gifts and one of our goals is to make sure they grow up knowing that Christmas IS NOT about getting gifts. We do give them some gifts, just … [Read more...]
