Is (hot) pink really just for girls?
Not if it’s hidden underneath your clothes!!!
Today was Cam’s first cloth diaper experience. So of course, I put him in my favorite cloth diaper: the flourescent pink one!
(Try not to judge me. I bought these diapers second hand from a friend who had a girl.)
When Jon got home from work and I showed him the pictures he said, “You’re not going to put that on Facebook are you?” He was appalled that our son would be publicly displayed in hot pink.
But I told him, “It’s just a diaper Jon. It’s not like I bought him a dress.” (Right? Is anybody with me?!) Boy clothes are so boring compared to baby girl clothes so I gotta have a little fun somewhere along the way!
So here you have it: Cam in a pink diaper.
I personally like it. A lot.
On the other hand, I am not feeling so positive about cloth diapering in general. It’s a great idea in theory, but since I share two washing machines with thirty five other people that are located seven doors down, and laundry hours are just from 8am – 10pm, and because there is no pre-soak or other upgraded settings, and because I’m gonna have to wash these things every other day…I keep wondering, “What was I thinking???”
Hopefully all will go well and in a few weeks I’ll be raving about how I’ve mastered this new challenge. Hopefully my neighbors won’t see me dumping poopy diapers in our communal washing machines…
But, on another note, I took the most amazing picture of my son today! Somehow I lucked out and had the camera on the perfect settings. If I had Photoshop I could probably make the color pop even more, but don’t his eyes look so spectacular!?
