If you’ve read my blog for any length of time you might know that I cloth diaper. Its true I do. But there is occasions when I use disposables. I’m not perfect and I don’t pretend to be. I really enjoy cloth diapering and I will be the first one in line to tell you to give it a try and that it isn’t as hard as it seems. But sometimes it doesn’t work for everyone and sometimes it just doesn’t work for me! Because lets be real….sometimes as moms we don’t have it all together. Sometimes we leave the house and we wonder if the curling iron is still on. Many times I’ve gone to the store, come home with a pile of groceries, only to discover that I didn’t even look in my refrigerator or freezer and discover that not only do I now have two of almost everything, but there is absolutely no where to stick anything into my freezer…whoops!!! You know what’s awesome though…that’s okay.
The Holiday season is prime “not having it all together” time. Presents to wrap, cookies and pies to bake, grocery shopping and large meals to make. We had some guests coming over so I was making sure I had enough of my fancy plates (I love using my wedding china) and enough chairs for everyone. What I don’t want to be worrying about is my diapers, and what if the stores are open, or I have clean ones (my cloth ones). I know my friendly neighborhood CVS will be open on those major holidays for any emergency that might pop up. Why? Because life happens and you gotta be real yo! I also happen to love CVS because they are the ONLY place that has USAA atms.
Pampers are not diapers I’m super familiar with, other than the Swaddlers newborn size that the hospital uses and I used when my littles were their tiniest. Recently I have been seeing the commercials for Swaddlers being carried in larger sizes, which I have to say is pretty cool. Those are nifty diapers. Name brand diapers are really expensive, but usually you get what you pay for. I have been pretty impressed with the ones I’ve used so far. I feel like they are brand new to me since its been forever since I used them. You will usually find me skimping on the diapers….however you will never find me skimping on wipes. I always shell out the big dough for wipes. I love the Pampers Sensitive wipes….love love love them! I snagged up the small pack with the adorable Giraffe’s on them. What I appreciate about smaller stores like CVS is that its easy. Its not a humongous parking lot, teeny tiny aisles packed with people. I can run in and out with relative ease if facing the Commissary or my local grocery store is just too much for my fragile mom-mind to handle. They may not have every single type of every single brand…but they will have the basics of what I need, and that is something I’m thankful for!
