I made the BIG mistake of telling the SIL that we were considering CD (this was done all through text): She said that all kids who wear them, no matter what type/brand smelled like pee/poop regardless of how clean the diaper looks, that you have to have a really energy efficient washer and dryer to save any money, that I would never hear the end of it from MIL, that some daycare won't take them (I know this might be true), that we need to support the big company that my FIL is retired from who makes diapers because their retirement fund is rapidly disappearing (they just put an addition on their house....the addition itself is much larger that my house alone!), and that she buys from amazon with coupons and ends up getting them for 10 cents a diaper......and I think she said even more.
Pheww!!! I am exhausted just writing this! And this was just one long strand of text messages without even giving me a chance to respond. In-laws....gotta love them. Incidentally, I will probably need to live with my MIL and FIL for 6-8 weeks while my kitchen gets remodeled because I don't think it will be safe to be around all that construction dust. Better start preparing myself now!
