oh my, when i read this i thought that i was reading about my house…..lol
when my kids were in diapers i was actually the one that was against the
cloth diapers namely because i had no clue how to do them and was only
19 when I had my daughter and not ready to try and figure it out. I did
however buy the store brand diapers as long as the kids could handle
them, my son I had to use Huggies for awhile because he would get a
really bad diaper rash if I didn’t.
On the light issue with me and hubby I am lucky on this one since we
both love candles. i actually have an apple box full of candles and
candles all over my living room that i have lately been trying to burn
at night since it is staying light out later and we don’t run the lights
during the day.
