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 http://www.dirtydiaperlaundry.com 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 http://dirtydiaperlaundry.com/tag/flats-and-handwashing-challenge/ (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.

Apologies

As most of you know, life got a little crazy for us this month with a kiddo in the hospital. Thus is the life of a family with a special needs kid like Kyle.

My apologies.. I promise we do eat, I just haven’t been posting it because of a lack of time!

Intro to our little corner

We are a busy family 🙂 There’s Stephen, our Daddy. I’m Cherie, 26 year old Mama of four AMAZING kids.

Gracie is our gorgeous, vivacious firstborn. She is a sensitive and extremely intelligent. At 8 years old, she is definitely our “little mother”, always looking after the house and planning out every detail that she can.

Charity is our second little girl. She is 6 now and full of life and spunk.
