Flats Challenge 2015

So I haven’t blogged in a while. We had so much going on.  We moved across the country, had a new baby, watched and supported as one of our babies joined a public school for a year, and downsized.  It has taken everything out of me to keep on going, and I am feeling the need to write.

What better way than to start with a challenge? This will be awesome.

Last year, when we first moved from Baltimore, MD to Willows, CA, we didn’t have a washer or dryer. It was rough.  I was 6 months pregnant with 4 kids, and washing 6 people’s laundry daily became tedious to say the least.

The flats and handwashing challenge is near and dear to my heart this year having been in a position last year that I never dreamed I would find myself in.  No income, and no washer or dryer! This year, I am challenging myself to diaper my littlest (6 months old) with only things we already have along with the challenge.

The challenge details can be found at (when my computer decides to let me hyperlink again, I’ll fix the link).

Each day there is a different blog prompt to go along with handwashing and diapering using flats.

I haven’t decided if I will do the challenge with Kyle this year as diapering a special needs kiddo throws a wrench into the mix, but I may put our beloved GMD fitteds in a basket for a week and at least try.
