Help a Mother Out

 "Diaper duty" was what I called the stage in my life when the boys were in diapers. I saw no end in sight and the thought that one day they would peeps and popes in the toilet was unfathomable. To those in the throws of diaper duty, I have come out of it and know that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
It does get better.
Well, it gets better in a way.
Teaching boys to "aim" into the toilet was a whole new can of worms- but I digress. 
It was stressful enough- I had two boys in diapers at the same time.
I found that my days were spent figuring out how to sync their poop cycles. 
I was a little sleep deprived- ok.  
Add to that the amount of money it cost to keep these monkeys diapered. Times are tough and the thought of spending $$$ on diapers for some is just too much.

  2. I do not know how young parents afford these things. What a good cause. BTW, I am having a GIVEAWAY on my blog. Comment to enter. Easy!

  3. Thank you so much for writing about HAMO! We really appreciate your help spreading the word. What a delight to learn about your project in Costa Rica! - Lisa

  4. I remember when my kiddos would move from one diaper size to the next and it seemed like it happened over night - we would have at least a box or so of diapers in the smaller size and we donated then each time. It's a great cause!
