First off, I like your saying about choices and decisions!!
Secondly, sorry you have orange ankles! And I'm guessing an orange bed spread? That's really a bummer.
A couple months after my surgery (so last spring) my husband and I took our son out of town for the afternoon. I turned around to tend to our little man in his car seat and when I sat back down I smelled our lunch again! (really, once I realized what it was I was super grossed out!!!!) Nothing had actually 'leaked' yet b/c my accessory popped at the top of the seal so I didn't feel anything. This was also at the point where I easily forgot about having Penelope and the fact that I had a bag of poo against my tummy So, my husband and I sat in the car and tried to figure out where the smell was coming from and he asked if it was me! How dare he!! But once I checked, low and behold there was Penelope playing peek-a-boo!
That was the first (and since then, last) time I had to change my accessory both in the car and in front of my husband.
Oh I know! I believe we all go through adaptations and adjustments constantly. For instance, I am now adjusting to my child wanting to be independent, and so while I work on my laptop he now sits at the table with his V-Tech laptop and works too And he just relocated his home office from the dining room to his bedroom because Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is on! He's so awesome!
I just changed my accessory last night b/c of some minor leakage that caused some serious itchiness and I'm just putting it out there that when I have a brand-spanking new accessory on I instantaneously in a good mood!
I LOVE Dreft! My son is 2 and really is not making stains like he used to, but I keep Dreft stain remover stocked both in the bathroom and laundry room! I use it for EVERYTHING!
More recently I've started using the Clorox pen for whites and the Tide pen for colored clothing...I'm impressed with both, really...but oh how I love the Dreft!
I agree...we no longer use the detergent b/c it is super expensive, but the stain remover is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! And the scent is so soft and comforting...LOVE IT!
So, yep...invest in some Dreft products and see how it goes!
