We're out of... what??!! It's a wonder that this would ever happen to us considering the fact that we have 3 children, 2 and under who are in diapers, but the truth is: Yes, we ran out. Sometimes I think my husband's keeping track and knows if we still have a stash of diapers under our dresser (yes, that's where we keep 'em) while he's assuming that I'm aware of our current diaper inventory. And we're both working under the premise that if you open the last pack , then you'd better inform the other party.

I know-- it really should be my responsibility since I'm the one who changes around 108 diapers a day, but somehow I feel that he SHOULD know.

The good news is that Pearl, our almost three year old, has decided not to wait for me and has embarked on a mission to potty train herself. Let me just remind you that Pearl is my Mother Hen child. Always cleaning, organizing & trying to take care of baby Ruby. She has literally been visiting the bathroom every 10-20 minutes to go potty. YES! I wish I could take credit for it myself, but that's just the way God made Pearl. By the way, she'll be 3 on May 3rd.

The only down side to this whole event is that she enjoys changing her outfit with each bathroom visit. Not that her clothes are dirty or messy, she just sees it as an opportunity to put on a new outfit. Did I mention that she takes it upon herself to treat herself to her older sister's shirts?

* I will be answering the rest of your questions soon. I am having a baby shower here on Saturday for a new mommy in our church. So....I hope to have sometime in the afternoon to finish with my post.

I love it! Way to go Pearl!
Isn't 9 old enough for your son to head up to the corner store and pick up diapers? LOL Just kidding!

I wondered, "Hmmm...what kinda diappies are those?"...Target, thanks Kriss! Do they work as well as Luvs??? Lots of diaper discussions in Bloggyland this Friday!

Wendy - We ran out Boo's size diappies last week, and he wore Judah's size for 4 days!!!

And, Yay for Pearl...girls are sooo much easier than boys!
