From the daily archives: "Saturday, January 14, 2012"
Today we are cheating. We are cheating a lot.
Gray has some diaper rash that hasn’t gone away in a few days with the cloth diaper friendly cream, so we pulled out the strong stuff and put him in disposables and we’re cheating.
We don’t often cheat, not for whole days at a time. Sometimes if we’re going to be out for quite a while we’ll throw him in a disposable, or on the trip to and from the Island. At night we put him in a disposable; if we put him in cloth he’s so wet that he won’t sleep through the night, but in a disposable he goes a good 11 hours usually.
Today I’m thankful for disposable diapers. I know that after a day or two with the strong diaper cream his bum will the free of red blotches and we’ll be back to our cloth. It also gives me a chance to strip our cloth diapers; it’s been about 6 months so I should probably do that.

I’m sitting in Dan and Rachel’s kitchen blogging about them. Seems a bit funny to me.
We swapped houses tonight so Dan and Rachel could have date night, and we could babysit the twins for them. Dan and I have been conspiring for weeks of how to spoil Rachel for a night. Brian and I prepped a gourmet meal for them and left it at our house, and popped over here, took the baby monitor and sent them to our place for a nice meal, china and all.
Rachel is honestly the sweetest person I have ever met. We became friends after our babies were born. We would go for walks in the afternoons and chat for hours. It was nice to have someone to hang out with. She helped me through the rough weeks. She got me out of the house, and out of my head and kept me from the self-deprecating spiral that started some days.
I’m so thankful for Rachel in my life. And though we haven’t had as many coffee dates since I’ve been back to work, I’m hoping that once busy season is over we’ll get back to our coffee dates.
