Diaper Delivery is the BEST

I know I've written about this before, but its totally worth mentioning again. The best thing I've done for myself in the diaper department is to have a diaper subscription through Amazon.

We get a huge box delivered every month. Occasionally, I edit the subscription and change the size. When you subscribe, you get the item at a discounted price.

I've been changing diapers since 2009. Six and a half years!

I'm a Luvs gal. They are less bulky than other diapers, and they are a great price. They get the job done, you know what I mean? But my sister prefers Target brand. To each her own.

I never run out of diapers! (Never say never.) I never have to make decisions about which brand to buy. I never have to take up space in my grocery cart. Best of all, I never have to make a mad dash during rush hour...with 4 kids...to buy diapers.

Do it. It is a luxury of our modern times. Take advantage.


Lessons Learned on Halloween

This year, my older two children (6 and 4) had a lot of expectations surrounding Halloween. They put their order in early for costumes, and I obliged....all to have them ditch their new costumes for old ones at last minute.

Lesson learned - I'm never buying Halloween costumes again! 

We did have a nice (crazy) time. Hay ride, trick or treating...the whole shebang! My parents were visiting and had a delicious pot of gumbo waiting for us at the house. It was all very fall-ish, minus the 80 degree weather.

There was a moment during trick or treating that my children starting running in three different directions on a dark and crowded street. Maybe I freaked out a little. Ask my husband.

Another lesson learned - have a family meeting/pow-wow before trick or treating about sticking together, the buddy system, and not running wild into the night.

Experience is the best teacher!

The thing I like most about Halloween is the pictures of kids in costumes. Each one makes me feel so nostalgic. This photo of my kids and my niece and nephew is such a framer! I love it. It almost makes me forget the panic attack I had.


Improving My Laundry Skills

I'm stealing a few minutes with my computer and a cup of tea, and I thought I would share my latest break through in....


Ever present, never stopping LAUNDRY.

One day I stumbled upon this post....Do you feel like your house is always messy? 

How could I resist it?

Here's a quote from the post...

"doing laundry from beginning to end is a cycle. When you start a second load of laundry before you complete the first one, you’ve broken the laundry cycle. Then it gets harder to complete the cycle (i.e. put away the first load of laundry)."

This concept is revolutionary to me. The end of the cycle is putting it away, my least favorite part of laundry. I'm good at pushing loads through and piling small mountain ranges of clean clothes on our  bed. I even get as far as folding it most days. But putting it away, I loathe the task.

But by not putting it away, I'm never done. I continue to fold and fold, and then I have so much laundry to put away it's no wonder I dread it so much.

So because I had nothing to lose, I dabbled in a little laundry experimentation last week. I washed, dried, folded, and put away a load before I started another one. I'm not going to lie, it was little bit magical. There was a sense of done-ness with my laundry that I've never experienced before.

Do you do this? Put laundry away before starting a new load?

P.S. The blog post is about more then just laundry. It's about finishing jobs staying on task. Truly inspiring.
