OK....Suburandaddy used this as his "hot topic" of the week. I wrote out a good post on how I used disposables with my sons, but if we ever adopt I would probably try cloth diapering. It didn't post, so I will try again Monday.

as a side note... i had a lovely chat with gina today about your mommy evolution... much talk of your niftiness. ;)

I didn't read the article but I heard talk about it at the Cloth Diaper group. I'll bring my latest copy of Mothering Mag to pass along to you at the next BW mtg. It happens to be their cloth diaper issue. :)
