It’s my sister’s birthday! And she will be spending it locked up in an apartment with her 11 month old baby, as she has spent every day for the past 4 months. I tried to think of what would be the most wonderful thing I could give someone in that situation, and I decided Moral Support and a Sense of Not Being Alone would be the best gift. But you have to help me “make” it! As a gift to me, give a gift to her 🙂
Let’s give my sister a little virtual coffee break today! Share your baby stories and advice, listen to her stories, just generally pretend we are all having coffee after a Mommy and Me class in stained shabby clothes with big circles under our eyes, but still so happy to be with people who know what it is like.
I’ll start! With one of those vital important topics that no one ever wants to talk about but parents of babies really really care about. What was your diaper system? Did you do disposable, or a service, or somewhere in between? Was your baby so messy that you had to put a rubber sheet over the mattress in case of leaks or is that just my nephew?
