This is my 5th year doing the challenge - 4th year blogging about the challenge - Since i rarely blog about anything, you can look up past challenges pretty easily in the archives. Maybe one day this week I will link up everything and make it easy for you!
Why do the challenge?1. to change things up, hand wash, line dry, use my covers that are collecting dust while i use my flats in pockets
2. to teach my kids how to hand wash (life skills!) -along with all the reasons one might need to hand wash diapers (or clothes)
3. (new this year!) to force myself to use cloth while we're out of the house*
4. i'm sure there are more reasons. the real question is, why blog about the challenge - cause that is the real challenge, finding time to actually type on a computer. I may just give up on this part after a few days, we'll see..
* with 5 kids, we just don't go out as often as we use to, when we do, i throw on a disposable and usually i don't have to even worry about a diaper change before we're back home. honestly, i may just decide that one or two disposables when we go out is just how it is going to be with this many kids - or i may find that flats are no big deal while we're out.
So HERE WE GO!
