I'm A Housewife, Are You?

What is a housewife? Wikipedia has decided any married woman whose main occupation is caring for her family, managing household affairs, and doing housework is just that. That brings up a valid debate... Is a working woman a housewife, I mean she cooks, cleans, and keeps her home orderly, right? In my opinion, if your MAIN and only responsibility isn't cooking, cleaning, and physically taking care of your family then NO, you are not a housewife, but a wife and a mother... And in every respect that is fine.
Logically if you are outside of the house for more then 8 hours a day how can you be a housewife? There is no way in hell you are doing the same thing as someone who is in the house for 90 percent of their day. When your husband comes home and dinner isn't on the table, your your laundry basket isn't full of neatly folded clothes, waiting to be put away, if your closet is organized and categorized... if you aren't personally putting together activities for your toddler, and baking daily, then you're not a housewife. Granted everyone is aware that I am a part time student, but I don't leave my house but for 2-4 hours A WEEK... That is my break, my bit of sanity outside of the house... but other then that I am home... I am a True housewife.

CD'ing! Still no diapers?!

So I'm still patiently waiting for my cloth diapers to arrive (which I placed my order on 7/20!!!). To cut the company some credit they are being shipped from China- I ordered the Sunbaby 4.0 diaper after reading the good reviews and seeing how reasonably priced they were.

Anywho they haven't arrived yet, and I'm down to about 10 diapers!!!!!!!!! Soooooo I started looking around and found Thanks Mama which is located in Newton (MA). Thank goodness! I'm able to place my order online and have them delivered for free or pick them up in store! Awesome right?! I was refusing to buy another bag or disposables for AJ, although Liam still have plenty. I ordered the Flip Diaper system which is a hybrid- I will be able to switch between the stay dry insert, AND get this- A DISPOSABLE insert for when we're out!! This will also be a great way to transition over as the hubs isn't fond of CD'ing. I also ordered some Kawaii heavy wetters for night time, and I plan to try out BestBottoms which is another hybrid system with great reviews!

I will update this week with pictures and I'm sure stories. =)
