Look ma, no diapers!

A funny thing has happened in the household of mammamilk.

We have no children in diapers.

Perhaps this seems small and insignificant to you, dear reader, but over here, it's big stuff.

My eldest daughter turned twelve last week, and about the same time, my youngest daughter dumped the diapers for good.

With the exception of a 4 month stint just prior to my youngest's birth, we have been in diapers for 12 years. TWELVE YEARS! Kinda makes my head swim when I think about it.

I did some highly scientific research (don't ask me for my methods - I don't want to intimidate you with my procedural prowess) and determined that the average child uses about 5,000 diapers. That means I have bought, stored, applied, removed and thrown away 25,000 diapers in my lifetime.

Good grief.

Oh man, Taylor is still in the midst of potty training and she is resisting so much! I feel like the diaper saga will never end!
