Flats and Handwashing Challenge: Day 1-Why I’m Taking the Challenge?

Can I be honest? I'm so scared that I can't even pad fold my kids diapers right now. I even posted my declaration of  what some might call insanity on my Facebook page. I've had a few friends ask me "Why are you doing that?" Well, here's why. I want to show that cloth diapering  is not what everyone thinks it is. Excuse me if my grammar may not be up to par but you get my drift.

Right now, as I type this entry there are women and men across the globe that are forsaking their modern technology for the basic of the basic. We are taking the Dirty Diaper Laundry 2nd Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge 2012 to bring awareness that you can cloth diaper your children for less than it would be for  disposable diapers.
We started using cloth diapers once we found out that we were expecting our third child! My husband and I  realized that we would have 3 in diapers! So we did our research and we started with the hybrids, then we switched to pockets and now we are using mostly flats and fitted diapers.
Gotta love the smell of spring!
I believe that this challenge will make alot impact because everyone is or has gone through that moment of "do we have enough diapers til payday?" Well, by using flat diapers and waterproof covers that thought goes out the window! Stay tuned as I will post a link to my YouTube vlog about our first day!
