I was having the girls do a chore today and talking about how if they did it with a good attitude there would be a reward. Anna asked, “What kind of reward papa?” I told her, “You know sweety, the best reward is to get to heaven and hear God say, ‘Well done thou good and faithful servant.’” To which she replied, “Oh, well, on earth my favorite reward is candy!”
I have been wanting to cloth diaper Jordan. However, I he’s grown out of his diapers!
A few options:
- Snap-EZ (“snap easy”) in the US makes different kinds of cloth diaper styles in infant, youth and adult sizes! How awesome is that!? I really wanted to order from them too, because they are adopting a little one from Bulgaria. Isn’t the world so small!? They also have connections with orphans with special needs in Uganda. The world is even smaller!
- Wunder Unders are supposedly nice
- Rearz supposedly makes all sizes
- And then there is also Alva Baby, which has a cloth diaper called “Baby Big Size Cloth Diapers.” These are made in China, so I am sure the fabric and quality are suspect, but you can’t beat the price at $7.00 per diaper, which includes an insert. Here is a picture already online showing size on a 4 year old and an almost 7 year old: http://community.babycenter.com/post/a42602053/alva_big_baby_fit_pics
So I purchased the China option (Alva Big Baby) and I like them! I only got two, but they fit great and will fit for awhile. I’m excited to be cloth diapering again and saving all the money we’ve been spending on disposable. I’ll be getting ten more and hope they will last me for several years.
Using just two microfiber inserts seems to hold enough and is comfortably trim. He’s not a huge wetter, so other kids may need more inserts or more frequent changes. I haven’t tried them for overnight.

This is moving. And educational. And pretty heavy. And really good.
Do you know what a Silkie is? It’s a kind of chicken. A small, fluffy, absurd chicken.
We have a little black Silkie that is dwarfed by all the full-size hens around it. She always looks a little bedraggled and pathetic, but perhaps that’s just the way Silkies look when surrounded by full plumage. I think of her as the gentle soul in the coop, the Little Princess, so to speak.
Well, she has only just begun to be brave enough to lay her petite little eggs in the nests instead of in her little nest on the ground. And just two days ago… I suspected something that has made us all laugh.
Little Princess Silkie, the Ugly Duckling… is broody! (meaning she is sitting on her nest and refuses to budge… she’s trying to hatch some chicks!)
Now, I’ve since looked up a little more about Silkies and learned that being excellent mothers is common for the breed, despite my doubts as to whether she can keep an egg warm with her little body. And so, I may laugh, but I am going to put one or two eggs under her to let her hatch them. She is such a sweet little thing. It’s nice to see her in her element.
