I feel like you want to make sure I stay in a desert forever. Blum 3

Though it would be nice to move to a city where I knew people for once.

Especially mine.

I got cursed the last time he asked for a tissue and I handed him a flannel cloth wipe that I bought for non-butt uses. I was amused though.

Haha! It's been fun to watch your transformation into a crunchier mama. I think you've even overshot me in some respects.

I think they make us obsess over the details of our day-to-day routine. Suddenly its even more important what we put in our bodies and how we catch what's coming out.

I'm not crunchy as much as I am cheap. Having a baby has turned me into a cheaper person when I can get away with it.

Yep, few people realize that crunchy is usually cheaper. Unless you develop a terrible CD addiction. Blum 3

That's one thing I actually like about this area. We have the saguaro cactus in town and up in the foothills. It's really cool to drive up the mountain and watch the vegetation change. We have full on pine forest up there!

totally. i ate from frozen boxes before i had him. i am not a health nut now, but i am a lot better. i hope i can keep it up when i go back to work. I am still using disposable diapers though. the lazy factor of washing them is what is holding me back;)

A friend of mine is buying cloth diapers for her baby due in Dec. If it's a brand I haven't tried before, she sends me one to use as long as I send it back to her once her baby is big enough to use it. :mrgreen:

That's an awesome deal! I know a bunch of ladies here in town that CD but most of them have babies smaller than Teagan (not younger, just smaller ... cuz she's fat).

Hi Wendy! Good nappy deals are really hard to ignore. I almost bought a bunch on BabySteals the other day just because they were %50 off. DH gave me a big NO.

That sounds awful. I'm not a fan of 100+ degree heat but I'm even less of a fan of below freezing temps. I want to move to Australia.

Erin, there's a reason why the itti tuttos have videos. Took me an hour to figure that darn thing out!

They're disappearing fast. While cute, her rolls hide things. Icky things. When she was little, I didn't realize she had a roll within a roll in her neck. There were things GROWING in there. I felt pretty bad about that one.

Yes move to Australia, we get cold in some parts and hot in others but depending on what you are looking for there is a climate that would suit you, or else move to Melbourne, they say if you don't like the weather just wait a couple of hours.

Yup, I wish I wasn't broke because I would have that set on it's way right now

We have a rule at my daycare that we're not supposed to pick up other people's kids. I understand it but at times it feels silly. I know the parents of two of the babies in Teagan's room and I've held them both a bunch of times. It feels weird to me that I can't go up to them and give them a little pat to say hi. Still, I get the reasoning. In the bus incident, the charges should have been dropped as soon as the mother said she thought a child was in trouble.
