Giving Stuff Away

I love giving stuff away. And I don't mean giving things to a friend or family member who has asked for something or who I know needs something...I mean getting fed up with mess and clutter and simply putting my old stuff on the sidewalk with a 'Free' sign nearby. My husband once put a King size Futon on the sidewalk in Seattle and watched from his apartment 3 stories up as a woman pulled up in a Honda hatchback with 2 kids and tried to load the thing. Realizing her plight, he and his roommate offered to move it for her in the roommate's pickup. Turned out she wanted it in the attic accessible only via the drop-stairs. They got it up there and the grateful recipient dropped off cookies the next day. Yesterday, to make room for cloth diaper inventory, we did the sidewalk giveaway again. Tiny kids chairs went to our neighbor. No one took the 6 half full gas cans - so a nice guy at OSH dealt with those. The quickest 'sale'? LA Lakers shorts and jacket given out as sales schwag at a conference in a past professional life. The weird part is they took the junky plastic wardrobe rack we'd hung it in...and left the Henkel wood knife block sitting on the ground below...

A Mommy Moment

I just experienced one of those moments in mommy-hood that makes all the hectic activity, repeated tasks, cleaning up, making lunch, making breakfast, cleaning up (again) moments seem like nothing. And totally worth it. My poor #2 just had his 6 month shots yesterday. He handled the actual shots like a pro - but today he is obviously uncomfortable.
#1 helped to bathe #2. Then we got ready for bed. #2 was (is still) crying and #1 decided that lap time with Mommy would help. Both sat on my lap and #2 promptly grabbed #1's hands - while I got to kiss both of their warm, soft heads while rocking in my comfy chair.
This is what it is all about.
Off to console #2. Poor guy. Breaks your heart.

In Business!

Last weekend was the official opening of BumRite Diapers! WOW! This is what I came home to today after my swim at the Napa Valley College (3,050 meters, btw :-)). Fun!
I am so thrilled with the response from friends and strangers across the country. My goal is to provide incredible customer service and to spread the word that cloth diapering is Eco-Friendly, Easy, and Economical. What is better than that?!
It's been an intense learning curve, but exactly what I've been craving since becoming a mom: mental stimulation, something that I can build, and something that I have control over.
I am so excited to be an advocate to the community about cloth diapers - but also, personally, to just be more involved and more connected with the people of Napa.
After all, moms are all in the same boat and we must support one another.

The BumRite Diapers BLOG

It started with reading The Diary of Anne Frank when I was 11 years old. I have 20 hand-written diaries locked in a safe in my basement. Now I am taking my musings on-line and semi-scripted to complement my cloth diaper website http://www.bumritediapers.com.
