Fluffy Mail!!!

Just wanted to share that I got my flats from Granola Babies in the mail today!!! I have been fretting the whole week that I wouldn't get them in time for the flats challenge and was working out a back up (using receiving blankets was my next go to). But Canada Post came through so my prep in get under way....well almost....

I am writing this post quite frantically because I have to leave for work in about 10-15 minutes for an evening shift (so I hope there is not too many run on sentences). I wanted to make this challenge as close to realistic as possible and even though I only work 2 nights and 1 day during the 7 day challenge my pre-challenge shifts should get me quite tired. I hope this can give some perspective on a working  mom and dad and using/handwashing flats. Just so you have an idea I work 8hour shifts in a long term care home and home care. My run of shifts started last Saturday (may 14th) I work Evenings May 14,15,16,17; Days May 18,19,20,21,22; and then Nights May 23 and 24. Phew that was work just writing that out! So I will be on my shift 10 and 11 when the flats challenge start (nights too!).

Well I should get finished getting ready for work (oh my 5 minutes till I have to go whoops). Good luck to everyone that is taking the Flats Challenge and look for my posts at Granola Babies blog!

Lots of Bunny-Hugs


  1. Wow!! You're brave. I used to work full time nights as a RN before my daughter was born. I'm impressed that you will still be doing the challenge even with working. Great job!! (I too am taking part in the challenge, but I'm not working at the hospital during that week. FYI: I work PRN in CCU.)

  3. Thanks Charis's Mum, I actually had a pretty good time doing the challenge. I did find that flats were not my favorite cloth diaper but I did like the hand washing.

  4. Erica Nicholas - thanks for the follow (I love your blog name!).
