Inside is the pitter-patter of little feet, outside is the stomp-clomp of workboots on the roof. The roof should be done today, so we return to our quiet routine.

My entire day is dedicated to folding clean laundry, getting a good diaper load un-stunk (the hazards of washing too many diapers at once is that they can build up a stink that needs a good wash in smaller loads to undo), and catching up on dishes.

Tonight, children permitting, I'll attend a social gathering and have some fun.

Once upon a time

while we lived at the 75th St. House, we had a huge spring barbecue, had lots of people over INCLUDING TWO 1-Y-O children. Now we are a household without children (all of us were older than that by that time) and apparently the diapers got put into the kitchen trash bucket because it was closest to the back door/most folks spent their time outdoors in the back or on the front porch because it was a beautiful day.

Flash forward to the next (very warm day), I get home from work and there is a fly ticket-taker and a long line of flies waiting to come in our back door. (exaggeration...). When I open the door, a stench that could knock a buzzard off a shithouse assaulted me.... aged, warmed dirty diapers. Yikes!

Fortunately our trash day was Wednesday, I bagged it all up and dragged it down to the basement back door so it would be farking OUT OF THE KITCHEN.

After than, when we had a diapered guest, we'd get a grocery plastic bag out and ask the parents to stow the used ones in that (so it could be sealed) or if we were babysitting, we'd just secure the dead diapers in such.

Granted, they were all on plastic/paper diapers, not cloth ones. I would be doing wash every single day if I had a baby in diapers just because of the smell...

Re: Once upon a time

Actually the cloth diapers smell much less than disposables, so you do laundry every other or every third day, depending on how many you have. But I agree, I carried ziplock bags for throwing away disposables before we went cloth.
