Cooking Without a Kitchen

Cooking Without a Kitchen

Although “cooking without a kitchen” might conjure up mental images of camping and open fire cooking, our situation is actually a little more unique than that. My husband, two sons, and I live with my husband’s grandmother in what is basically a glorified bonus room.  The family that lived here before his renovated the bonus … Continue reading

Mawmaw on my Mind

Mawmaw on my Mind

Yesterday, we were supposed to go out to dinner with my mom’s mother (my Mawmaw, the one from 85 Years Young) and my mom’s brother, who is back stateside from doing civilian contracting in Kuwait.  However, Mawmaw got sick for a few days straight, so we wound up getting the family together in the hospital … Continue reading

Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind

This weekend was the first in a month that we had to lose Avery.  I really do not like giving him up for visitation, but unfortunately it is the law.  Our “off” weekends for Avery are usually more subdued than the ones that we have him for, and this one was no exception.  I didn’t … Continue reading

Noah’s Ark & Absenteeism

I’ve been conspicuously absent for the last week!  I missed the Weekend Rewind for the first time (it’s Wednesday now, so I suppose there’s not really any point in doing it by now), though not for lack of things to write about.  We had another good weekend – it was our third weekend in a … Continue reading

Weekend Rewind

What a freakin’ weekend!  Y’all, we had the best weekend we’ve had in a really long time.  As much as we love spending weekends at the ballpark, it was nice to do something different for once.  Friday, we drove down to the Savannah suburbs to stay the night with my childhood best friend.  Catching up … Continue reading

As Seen on Pinterest

As Seen on Pinterest

Since the last As Seen on Pinterest (a diy headband braided from your own hair) turned out to be something I do all the time now, I thought doing another project may turn out to be a useful craft, too.  So here’s the next crafty thing: a ribbon scarf made from old t-shirts. I’ve been … Continue reading

Cloth Diaper Review: Thirsties Duo Wrap

Cloth Diaper Review: Thirsties Duo Wrap

Thirsties covers were one of the later additions to our stash, but they have become a staple.  We have one in size 1 (Cool Stripes pattern) and one in size 2 (Hoot pattern), both with snaps instead of aplix (velcro-like) closure.  I use them with trifolded or Snappi’ed prefolds. Cotton Babies product description: Easy to … Continue reading

Thank You!

Thank You!

My blog is one month old today.  Despite the fact that I’ve been a blogger off-and-on since 2002 (that’s the eighth grade, y’all!) this is the most successful blog I’ve ever had. Today, on the one month birthday of The Constant Diaperer, you guys broke the page view record (again) at 51 hits in a … Continue reading

Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind

As with most weekends, we spent the majority of it at the ballpark.  On Saturday, Big Daddy had six games of 9/10 baseball at Heritage Park, which we really enjoy.  It’s a very large, very nice park with an actual steam engine that you can get in (although we have to avoid that area on … Continue reading
