Twin Mom Brain, and an update

Ok, so keeping up with this thing (and remembering to post!) has been difficult. With the weather getting nicer, and being out of my home a lot, I don't seem to have the time. I do enjoy blogging, because I can express my viewpoints freely without backlash from stubborn people threatened by "change". I'm just plagued by a chronic case of "twin mom brain". Forgive me, I'm ill.

I have discovered I truly love cloth diapering my boys. We've been successfully cloth diapering them full time for a month and a half. We've found our preferences, and products to make cloth diapering easy. It doesn't hurt that I have a supportive husband who learned to cloth with me. He even rinses the "mess" off them when necessary. I do love that man.

I should do a role-call of my stash. I have been slowly acquiring cloth diapers from multiple online boutiques, shops and even Target. It's about time I made a list :-)

3 Thirsties Size 2 Duo Wraps- Aplix closure
1 Thirsties Size 2 Duo Wrap- Snap closure
4 Bummis Medium Super Whisper Wraps
1 Bummis Small Super Whisper Wrap
2 Kushies Taffeta Wraps (for when I run out of my clean "good wraps")
1 dozen Green Mountain Diapers two-sided wipes
1 dozen wipes I cut from an old receiving blanket
1 Tweedle Bugs One Size Pocket Diaper
2 dozen BumGenius! Stay Dry Diaper Doublers
4 BumGenius! 3.0 AIO-Large
2 Bum Genius 3.0 AIO- Medium
2 dozen Gerber Prefold Diapers
1 dozen Gerber birdseye flat fold diapers
5 Green Mountain Diapers Preemie Prefolds (used as diaper doublers)
6 Snappi fasteners
1 Planet Wise Diaper Pail liner in Seaspray (I LOVE this color and pail liner)

Have had/used:
Imse Vimse Flushable Diaper liners
Bummis Biosoft flushable diaper liners
Baby Bits Wipes Solution bits (purchased from Mom's Milk Boutique)

Waiting on:
 Shinies Pocket Diaper

So, my list is finally in front of me. I thought I had more, but I guess that I don't. It must be all the bulk of 2 dozen prefolds and the diaper doublers! I would like to get some more pocket diapers though, I really like the stay dry effect of fleece and suede cloth. Don't get me wrong, I love my Thirsties and my Bummis, but I would love to have some pre- stuffed pocket dipes for easy changes when the babies are fussy. My BumGenius AIO's are currently an overnight diaper only. They work wonderfully, and if I could afford it, I would use them exclusively just for how convenient they are and how well they work. I'm also looking into supporting WAHMs (work at home moms) by buying hand made dipes on Etsy. Haven't found one I love yet though, I continue my search.

And with that note, this post has taken me 2 hours with the interruptions I face. It is time for this tired mama to go to BED.
