I finally started cloth diapering

Posted in Cloth diapering tagged , , at 3:11 pm by mottoblasco

I just had child #4 & only began cloth diapering(CDing for those familiar) a couple months before he was born.  I am killing myself for not having done so sooner.  Not just because of environmental purposes but financial too.  I will just say it’s not as simple, at first, as disposables.  But I was forced to use a few disposables recently and hated it, just because of all the reasons we chose to CD in the first place; financial, environmental, the cute factor :).

My husband and I are really trying to be aware that this world was given to us by the Lord.  And just as it’s our responsibility to take care of our temples(bodies) we should take care of this world.  So we have been on a venture of living more self-sustainable, eco-conscious & living rightly(as we see it).  This is one way.  My next post will break down the basics of what I learned while researching CDing & I’m sure I will add to it as I go…because I’m still learning as I go.  Thanks!

No more excuses

You know how you come to a point when enough is enough.  You are tired of living with the monotony of the day-to-day stuff?  Mostly, tired of making excuses for why that bible hasn’t gotten off the shelf in a month, aside from church(boo to ‘Sunday’ Christianity).  I’m in that place.  I am tired of saying I don’t have time and I’m going to make time.  Don’t get me wrong, I love God & pray & praise daily, but the Bible or even a daily devoted time is non-existent.  So here I am, putting it out there that I refuse to let that continue.

John & I have talked about it many times because we go thru stages where the kids get more demanding, then less demanding, then more demanding &  back again.  But we know Christ deserves so much more than that.  Family night will now commence.  Every Tuesday night we will not watch TV/Movies, etc.  We will play with the kids(duh), do Gracie Games, but most important study & read Bible stories & pray with them.  These things aren’t uncommon but we want to be more purposeful about it.  Also, after they go to sleep it’s our turn to pray, study, talk, worship, together.

Please pray for us that we continue to seek putting him first, because we all know how hard it is in our fallen state.  A men
