Thirsty for Thirsties!

Corny title, sorry. Couldn't resist. I know I haven't blogged over here lately, been a bit busy. What with life and all.

Anywho, I'm popping in to talk about the makers of one my most favorite diaper covers EVER- Thirsties! Now, granted, I've used more of their products than just diaper covers, but those are the ones I've used the most, and have the most of, so I can safely say how wonderful they are.

What I DON"T have, however, are any of their NEW Duo Wraps. Why, you might ask? Well, they came out right after I bought my last batch of covers. (Thirsties, mind you.) Had they been out, that's what I would have bought.

Now, I know what you might be thinking: why are we talking about Thirsties Duo wraps? Why are we talking about Thirsties at all?? Well, besides being a cloth diapering dork, I'm also writing to let you guys know about the amazing Thirsties Thursday Giveaway that they have going on right now! It's for:
2 Duo Wraps
2 Prefolds
2 Stay-dry liners

Now, that might not sound like a lot to the uninitiated, but for those of us who use cloth diapers all day, every day, that is a great prize! And I seriously want to win.


So much so that I almost forgot to link back to the post on the Thirsties blog!!!

Don't try this at home!

Today I attempted to make peanut butter cookies with my 2 1/2 year old. And my one year old thrown in for good measure, about half way through.

Do I need to go on, or do you already know where this is going?

Well, for those of you who haven't interacted with a toddler lately, I'll continue. The rest of you can just continue laughing at me and close the tab.

She did great helping turn the mixer on and off, adding ingredients, etc. Except that she thought the shortening must taste similar to peanut butter since it was in a similar container. The main job I gave her, however, was to roll the dough balls in sugar. Easy enough. Simple. And she did it, very well, I might add. The trouble started when she 1) discovered how good the dough tasted; and 2)when she decided she didn't like the feeling of the sugar on her fingers between rollings. Sooooooo to fix number one, she started pinching off bits of dough to eat. And to fix number two she would stick her whole hand in her mouth to suck all the sugar off.

Yeah.... we won't be sharing these cookies with friends and neighbors.
