The day has finally come! I have given up my Flip Cloth Diapers! I knew I would eventually have to face the music.
As many of you know I am a Flip fanatic. I enjoy the ease and versatility of my flip covers and inserts, but when I received a phone call a few weeks ago, I knew I would be parting with my flips for the first time in almost 16 months! My Stash Sister planned a visit to see our family and recently converted to cloth diapers (YEAH!!! I have been working on her for awhile). She informed me that she wasn’t going to bring her diapers because she didn’t have room in 1 suitcase for her 2 babies and her belongings. Then the next question…I knew it was coming…my sister says, “so can I borrow your cloth diapers while I am visiting?”
I couldn’t say no, I was the one who converted her to cloth diapers in the first place! Especially after I just posted a picture of My Stash on my facebook page! But this means I will have to give up my Flips because they are the easiest for her and what she is used to. I know this may seem a little “over protective” on my part, but I love using my Flips, and even though it would only be for a week, it throws me off my regular routine. Yes I am that girl who loves her routines and loves to have things organized, and may even have pack-rat tendencies?! I can’t help it, that’s the way I am. (I will probably be the one who saves my cloth diapers forever because I can never part with them)
After a few minutes, of course I agreed, it was my sister!I began the routine of cleaning my diapers and packing them up for her. I also decided that since I had plenty, and she is just beginning her stash, I would pass along a few covers as well (permanently)!
We will see how I survive the rest of the week…it’s pockets and AIO’s for me! You never know, maybe I will develop a new found relationship with those diapers I tend to push to the side at times.
Have you ever shared your diapers or given them away before?
