I saw a "wet stained glass" pin on pinterest and decided to try it with Noah. We had a lot of fun, but I think he's still a little too young for it. He'll be a year old next month, and I think we'll try this one again when he's a little older.
We were able to make this a 3 part project. First we ripped up the paper while going over our colors, then we did the stained glass, then we glued the pieces to the picture of our tree when they dried and fell off of the window.
“So…it’s not just a disgusting, pee soaked, towel full of poop?”
One day, my grandmother mentioned cloth diapers & apparently my pregnancy hormones took the sugar coating right off of my response. For a long time, the thought of cloth diapers repulsed me. I explained to her that I figured the life of a cloth diapering mom looked a little something like this: take a washcloth, wrap it around your baby, secure with HUGE “safety” pins, then you’ll either need to tie a grocery bag around the kid, or plastic wrap the furniture because there will be pee and poop on everything. (Not only gross…but not very “green”). She laughed and explained what cloth diapers were, even 50 years ago, and convinced me to at least look into them.
Although all of the current cloth diapering options available did spark some interest, I was overwhelmed by all the choices and put off making a decision. Thankfully, by the time the baby was born, family & friends had already supplied us with a stash of Huggies and Pampers, so once again, the cloth diapers got put on the back burner.
As mothers, my aunt and cousin knew that they could either make a decision and get the ball rolling for me, (which was exactly what I needed) or listen to me as I’m kicking myself in a few months because “I wish I were using cloth diapers.” One day, a package came in the mail…POCKET DIAPERS & BAMBOO INSERTS!
I am the proud Mommy of 2 under 2, a wife, and an artist. My son has loved coloring, painting and drawing since he could hold/eat a marker. My daughter LOVES watching from her bouncy seat and will be getting messy with us in the very near future. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to be a stay at home mom, and be able to play with, create with and teach the littles.
