Nifty Nappy Woolies and Diaper - WAHM Series

I ordered two wool longies from Nifty Nappy over the holiday. My order got lost in the holiday rush, and when owner/sewing master Vilate Thacker eventually found it, she offered to throw in a fitted diaper as well to make up for the delay. A fair deal, I thought. I was thrilled when the package arrived. One of the benefits of online shopping is that you get the rush of buying several times - first when you do the payment online, next when you see that it has shipped, and again and again every time you see the mail truck, until finally when it actually arrives and you get to open the package. Fluffy mail!

The wool longies, or "Nifty Knickers" as she calls them, are custom made to fit your little one based on measurements you send in, and at $16 each they are a steal for custom wool baby attire. We got one in red and one in purple, and Sweet Pea has already worn each several times. I really like putting her to bed in them because they are so warm and cozy. The seams are very strong; each one is sewed and then serged. Sweet Pea is super active right now so I had a hard time taking a photo of the longies on her, but here she is in the purple ones:

 Yes, we are really close to walking!

I am also impressed with the fitted she sent. This is a great diaper, it fits well and isn't too bulky, especially for a fitted. I usually add a microfiber insert wrapped up in the lay-in insert (organic hemp fleece and bamboo velour) that comes with it for longer wear.

It looks like Nifty Nappy has a great offer right now of a combo purchase of the fitted with a woolie cover for only $38, with a money-back guarantee!

In sum, I would recommend this mom-of-six's diaper business to any cloth diapering parents looking to venture into fitteds and/or wool. A great price for a great product!

Summer 2020 - Life in a Pandemic

I'm in my final week of summer before work as a middle school teacher begins again. This time of year I'm always in a reflective mood.  I look back and feel so lucky to have had this time with my kids. We went camping, biking, boating, golfing, and hiking. We celebrated my sister's wedding, we did projects together, watched movies, and just hung out at home. It really was everything that summer is meant to be. There were many events and plans that we canceled due to Covid, but we did all the most important things. We missed friends, but I also reveled in the togetherness with my little family unit. Today, I spent time registering for fall childcare and activities. It's less than usual, but still I can see the pace of our lives picking up. As we move into a season of more busy-ness, more work, and likely more stress, this poem sums up the feelings I'm experiencing....

Woollybottoms Giveaway

I am hosting my first giveaway! I have been wanting to do this for a while, and I'm so pleased to have it finally planned. The item I chose to give is a new pair of Woollybottoms - wool pants for babies. The retail value of these is $29.00. I have been really into the wool pants thing lately, as you may have noticed from my recent posts (about Nifty Knickers , and my baby blue longies ) so this seems like a good fit. Wool pants can be used as a cloth diaper cover, or just as snuggly warm pants for the winter or for bedtime. These ones are "footies" so they should keep your baby toasty! The pair I am giving to one lucky winner is light blue with fish fabric for the footie part. Maybe a little more boyish than girlie, but Stella would definitely wear these if we got to keep them. They are size medium, and have the following measurements: 8" waist (elastic) 9" rise 18" length Here they are: To enter, simply comment below and let me know why you wan

Naming of things

So, in my “ First Post ” I said that I picked the name of my blog randomly from a list I’d brainstormed. That’s not quite true. I actually made a long list of possible names, and then finally came up with one that I liked, and went with it. While it was not exactly a random choice, I didn’t put massive amounts of time into thinking it through. Now that I’ve committed to it I think I really do like it. (If I don’t, I can always start a new one, right? It only took about 5 minutes to set this up.) The reasons I think this name works for me: It has my new nickname, and my daughter’s top nickname It expresses the idea that this is something that I’m creating, or “making” My daughter does have to be included in this because much of what I plan to write about is inspired by her, and she has to give me the time to write for it for it to work It somewhat obscures my identity for public readers who don’t know me and might want to someday look me up and stalk me and my family (that’s assum
