Unexpected Benefit of Cloth Diapers

Dear Delilah,

Lately, you have been trying to put diapers on everything. I mean everything! Not just dolls and stuffed animals, but cell phones, remote controls, the camera, snack cups, water bottles, books, anything you can get your hands on. I think if the cats would hold still for it, you'd try to diaper them too.

Delilah chooses Knickernappies for her snack cup. :)
I love your new found love for diapering. It keeps your attention for longer than many of your toys, it's safe and imaginative play, it promotes fine motor development and improves finger dexterity, and it gives you the opportunity to problem solve.

It occurred to me that I might not be so supportive of this hobby if we used disposables. I'd be worried you would rip one, or spill water on it, or render it unusable in some other way. With cloth diapers, you can play all you want, and there's no waste!

Did I really write this to spin diaper play as an unforeseen benefit of cloth diapers? Nah, I just wanted to post that adorable photo of you. :)
