I’m sorry that you’ve basically just had poetry from me this past week. Actually, on second thought. No, I’m not sorry. Poetry is wonderful and everyone should read at least a little. 🙂
But what I mean is, I haven’t written much in the past couple of weeks. I’m feeling a little blog slump, maybe? I also have started four posts, but finished none of them. I’m not sure if anything I have to say these days is worth reading. Sometimes I feel that way.

But, I will be publishing part two of my “Love Story” (don’t worry, it’s not like Taylor Swift’s — though I have to say I dig her) on Monday. If you haven’t read Part One, you should check it out! I’m doing a three part story of my faith journey thus far. Monday’s post will be talking about what happened from my college graduation until I met Atticus.

To change gears completely, I have some mommy related questions for all your lovely mama’s.
Diapers: My cloth diapers are leaky! Help! They only leak from the legs, but leak just about every time I put one on her, usually within two hours. I stripped them in my washer with sensi-clean a few weeks ago, and it helped a little, but they are still leaking. I switched from Tide powder (which the Jillian’s Drawers website recommended) to the Allen’s Naturally because I had a bunch of sample bottles. Now I’m almost out of them, and I need a detergent. If you have diapers that don’t have leaking problems, what kind of soap do you use?
If you’ve had leaking problems, how did you fix it? Anything other than stripping them?

Maggie hates tummy time. She hates it. She’ll do it for about five minutes, then she starts screaming. She’ll do a modified version of it on her boppy, but she’ll only do that for about ten minutes or so. I’m kinda worried that she’s never going to roll over, or crawl, or anything.
How do you make tummy time bearable?

I am reading The Help and it is really, really good. If you’re looking for an interesting novel, especially if you like books tied to something historical and real, I’d recommend it. Of course, I am only half way through, so I can’t speak about the whole thing. But what I’ve read so far is very good.
What are you reading these days?

We have a zoo membership, and they are opening a new tiger enclosure over Memorial Day weekend! I cannot wait to go and check it out. The tigers are cool, but my favorites are the bears and the lions. And the seals. I love the zoo.

Maggie and I have been listening to Pandora radio a lot. I discovered a great song for “baby dancing”. We “baby dance” when I hold Maggie upright so she can see everything, then we bop around the room. The song is “Say Hey (I love you)” by Michael Franti. It’s such a great feel-good song, you can’t help but want to dance when you hear it.
Happy Friday and Happy listening!
