I received our first shipment of diapers. I hope/plan to get as many as possible second hand, but. . I just wanted to have some so I could see them and touch them. Maybe because having them around means that Baby is coming. Soon. And for real. I have never been one of those girls who oogles and coos over a baby and baby things, so my reaction is a new experience for me: when I got them in the mail, I pulled them out and had this warmy feeling inside. I'm delighted about them. They are soft and sweet-smelling and fresh and new ~ just like our little one will be. I have kept them out ~ just sitting there ~ so that when I walk by, or am doing other things, I can look over at them, and get that same warmy feeling inside, and a delighted smile on my face even if I'm by myself.
I know that soon enough, my view of diapers forever will be changed. And those diapers themselves will be, too. But this is how I feel right now. I just wanted to write it down to save and savour.
"nappy" is the name British-influenced countries use instead of "diaper".
preaching to the choir in this readership, but: there's an organization for every cause, including spreading the word about using cloth diapers.
