Are your kids in need of a safe and fun environment where they can explore, create and imagine, all while developing their faith and learning biblical truth? Enter the Odyssey Adventure Club (AOC)! When I was a child the music on the radio was not something that I desired to listen to (I’m still not into 80s/early 90s music…), so I ended up listening to Oldies and radio theatre. My favorite program was undeniably Adventures in Odyssey. I listened live on the radio and could quote the mailing address by heart and even wrote a letter to Connie back in the day… I still have set of cassette tapes that I’m really looking forward to sharing with my daughters (if only I could find a tape deck, eventually!). I also have a few CD sets that we’ve listened to from time to time. I’m really hoping as they get a little. . .
Okay. So this is kinda the post I’ve been meaning to write forever, but it is also just me getting thoughts to the page. We have cloth diapered both girls from the beginning minus the first day or so in sposies for the meconium. AppleBlossom started in Tiny gDiapers with Gerber double thick prefolds in them. The were folded in half and then again into thirds. It was a last minute run to the store fix right after she was born. We soon moved to Bummis Small Super Whisper Wrap Covers (at that time only available in prints with hook & loop). We used the Bummis Infant Prefolds with them. It was great, but big on her, but we got by. I also had some size 1 Kissaluvs Fitted diapers as well as one Newborn Woollybums that I loved! Later we moved on to FuzziBunz Small Pocket Diapers and then. . .
It’s no secret I love Bummis. I really really really love Bummis and want them to come out with covers with snaps in prints! But that’s another story… Bummis has partnered with a Scottish company (Tot Bots) to distribute some of their diapers including fitted diapers and a new AIO. Easy Fit Diaper A very different kind of pocket diaper! The innovative design of this diaper features a non messy stuff – easier than a pocket system. No fiddling around – a swift stuff to get the liner in is all you need… And – no more losing liners in the laundry! This super thirsty liner is actually attached to the diaper, making the Easy Fit a remarkable all-in-one diaper with many of the benefits of a two piece system – fast drying and easy to clean. Its innovative design provides a very versatile absorption – the attached liner can. . .
Cloth diapers have already come so far in the last ten years that the ones that are out today you’d almost never assume something so cute could be an affordable adorable fluffy bum. One of the most amazing things that has come out in the last few years is the concept of an All in One (AIO) Diaper. One company that I love for their other diapers makes an AIO that I want to tell you about now. Kissaluvs. Why Marvels AIO? One Size, Fits 7-35 lbs. Quick Drying. No stuffing. Our absolute favorite diaper! Super easy to use – simply snap on and snap off! Grows with the baby, so you’ll never need to buy another diaper again. Patent Pending Self-cleaning, No-stuffing design. Toss the diaper into your washing machine and the soaker will agitate out to get a thorough cleaning and dry in a jiffy, but will stay. . .
