To moms, cloth is cute. To most dads, cloth is ick. This is a tribute to the brave few who can call themselves Cloth-Diapering Dads.
Here’s to the dad who didn’t gag when his wife ditched the sposies, dressed their little one in cloth, and waited to see what his response would be at that first diaper change.
Here’s to the dad who didn’t gag when one day his wife had too many irons in the fire to be able to change that really awful smelly diaper, leaving him to the task all by himself.
Here’s to the dad who didn’t gag when he turned the diaper sprayer on full force and ended up with smelly poo all over the toilet, the wall, and himself.
Here’s to the dad who didn’t gag when he saw the credit card bill with a three-digit-and-some-change receipt to an online cloth diapering company.
Here’s to the dad who didn’t gag when he mistook the diaper pail for a real trash can and unwittingly caught a whiff of what might knock a lesser man to his knees.
Here’s to the dad who didn’t gag when his wife changed a diaper on the bed next to his sleeping body, of which he promptly rolled over and in to.
Here’s to the dad who didn’t gag when his wife forgot to throw a load of diapers in before vacation, causing them to return to a house that smelled much like a cattle yard.
Here’s to the dad who didn’t gag when his wife announced a new baby would arrive with no chance the first one would be potty-trained, thus creating double the diapers.
Here’s to the dad who listens to his wife go on and on and on about cloth diapers. Here’s to the dad who fiddles with snaps, velcro, and ties not simply as a way to humor his wife, but because he also believes cloth is best for his little one. Here’s to the dad who gets a kick out of that big ole fluffy cloth diapered bottom just as much as mama does.
Cloth-diapering Dad, you are a Cloth-Diapering Mama’s dream come true! Thank you!
