The mister and I made a trek over to Babies-R-Superstore this weekend. We had a coupon for a fair discount off of a single item, and this seemed like a sign from God (or the post office) that we should start collecting cloth diapers to take to Honduras. Besides, where else is there that still stocks diaper pins? The mister and I headed toward the back of the store where the diapers were located. We eventually discovered some diaper pins buried in the furthest corner of the department. Amidst the assorted organic and chlorine-free, super, natural, ultra-green products for covering wee baby bottoms we found not.one.single.package.of.cloth.diapers. Mmmhmm. Asking associates for cloth diapers, we were directed to the front of the store where the feeding items were stocked by the third in a chain of perplexed superstore employees, the final one helpfully explaining that, even though they were called cloth diapers, people really use them for burping babies. Well. Alrighty then.
