To Cloth Diaper or not to Cloth Diaper?

Okay, after being back at work today I feel more energized. Probably because I was getting off 45 minutes early. LOL But anyhoo..I have been toying around with the idea of using cloth diapers because of my brother-in-law and his wife. It had nothing to do with the landfill. Glad to be helping out, but that won't it. These two...bless their hearts...have 5 children and one on the way. The have 1 that is still in diapers, one that is training and another that was just trained last year. (They are 8,5,4,3,2, and1) they just seem so fertile...~ahem~ But whenever they come to visit and they are sitting around having a good time one of the little ones will ~do they bizness~ and need to be changed. The two dummies, I mean in-laws will start with the..."Where are the pampers?" " I thought you had em'." I have decided that I don't want to be like them. I mentioned it to my Phat man and he seems okay with them. My Phat mom went on and on about when she used cloth diapers and how she had to dunk them in the toilet. Ewww is right...but they have come a long way. Let me know what you think.

They even have flushable liners so there will be NO MORE DUNKING...! Ha @ Phat mom.
They are cute though... I like this one:

Awww, the lil duckie-wuckies...LOL.

Easy Like Sunday Morning......

I swear I feel like I am the laziest person on earth today! I think I did too much housework on yesterday. I washed 200 loads of clothes.....for two people. I'm exaggerating but can you say five baskets! Plus it was at the laundry mat....I hate going to the laundry mat...can I get an AMEN?? Came back home put all of our clothes away...(mostly Phat man...and he always says that he has nothing to wear...he always has the most clothes to wash!) Entertained my other Phatsis-in-law2 and her crew (4 boys and 1 girl and she is married to Phat man's brother) they were all here. Holl-erd at chil-ren, popped a youngin' here and there...ooooo'ed and ahhhhhh'ed over baby clothes......seperated the clothes into the now 5 empty baskets for my mother to wash. (She does not want me to wash them at the laundry mat, she wants to do them herself...I wish she woulda did mine that's a Phatgramma for ya). Went to the store got groceries...phatsis2 cooked spaghetti for everyone and did not leave until after neck and my back...and I'm not even talking about Khia....whew...more like I need to go to the Spa....~eyes glazing over at the thought~. I am so tired...ouch....well, I guess I will continue to sit here in my pajama's, listen to the rain outside, snack on everything, and sleep in between reading blogs...~YAWN~

Abortion-Question of the day..

Why is it that someone can lay down, have sex (consensual), conceive and say things like....
"I could never carry my baby to full term and give it away." But they can run to the nearest clinic and kill it? Can someone help me understand this please. I have seen this too many times and it makes me so mad. I feel like if you can do all of the above then why not either: A: Keep it, B: Give it away to someone in the family that can't have children, C: Put it up for adoption, or D: Ask for help. I am so sick of seeing this as being a easy way out for two grown folks to handle their business. I feel like abortion should be illegal. YES I AM PRO-LIFE!!!!!!!!! (Can't you tell?) I feel that the termination of a pregnancy should only be used from a medical standpoint. Extreme deformities and if the child is already deceased inside the womb. Other than that individuals that are raped..give it up for adoption or keep it. That child is a part of you too. You never know who you might be aborting. The next President, The one that may have the Cure for Cancer, Aids...we will never know because of a generation being sucked away. What do you think?

Catching Up

So this is what has been going on. If I want a some "Blog Groupies" I guess I need to be here more. ~Ahem~ But this is what has been going on in my world of adopting. I had been speaking with the Grandmother off and on now for the last 3wks. Lemme tell ya.."Grandma ain't raising no more kids". She has told me that repeatedly. On May 5th..the day came for me to talk to the Birth mom. I was so nervous. Oh yeah..this is an open adoption, permanent guardianship type of arrangement. I will hafta go back and tell you how all of this came about. But when I spoke to the birth mom the conversation went like this...
BM: Hello?
Phatgurl: Hello.
BM: How are you doing?
Phatgurl: Fine and you?
BM: Fine.
~Pregnant Pause~ --Sorry for the pun..but for real it was really quiet.
Phatgurl: I heard you had some ice cream today. (I know right...)
BM: Gurl I had pizza and ice cream. It was good too.
Phatgurl: I just told Phat Man that I wanted some ice cream..what kind did you have?
BM: Butter back is hurting now...I will be glad when this is over.
Phatgurl: Well you don't have too much longer.
BM: ~Burst into tears and got off the phone~
Phatgurl: ~Tears welling up in my eyes trying to figure out how I stuck my foot in my mouth~
Grandma: She'll be alright, she has been having these crazy mood swings.
No sooner than she says that BM, gets back on the phone and says....
BM: So do you and your phat man have any children?
Phatgurl: No, we don't have any kids. We have been trying for a long time and we have been unable to do so.
While this conversation is going on...Grandma, my Phat sis-n-law, and Phatman are all on the line with BM.
BM: Well, this is your baby I'm carrying...
~I almost died~
Phatgurl: Ok
Grandma: BM, y'all need to talk about names
BM: What about Quintarvious?
Phatgurl: Ummm
Grandma: Hell, no.. we do not want him to be stereotyped....we want him to have a chance without being judged by his name.
Phatsis-in-law: That's right.
Phatman: Hmm hmph
BM: Ok what about DMX? ~proceeds to bark in the phone~
Phatgurl: Laffin nervously and looking at Phat man while he's snigglin and gigglin...~rollin my eyes
Grandma: What name have ya'll chosen?
Phat man: Jon Madden--(I don't think so.. I have got to do something with that X-BOX)
Phatgurl: Julian Bryce...
~Everyone except Phatman~ Awwwww I like that that's cute!
Phatgurl: smiling to myself..I know it is...
Can y'all believe Phatgurllove is fixnta be somebodies where is that control to the x-box..I will give y'all part two later. Its too much to put into one conversation...LOL
