Diapers? No thank you!

What do these kids have in common?

No, it's not their disdain for a clean bedroom.

Nope, it's not their genetic tendency towards slothfulness.

Or even their inability to all look at the camera at the same time.

Get this, every single Miles' child is (drum roll, cannons and fireworks please)


Can you imagine my happy dance?  I've been doing it for a while now.  Yes, people are starting to look at me strange.  No, I do not care.

My oldest child turns 8 later this week which means that for the last 8 years (minus a few weeks) I have been changing diapers.  Always on at least one child, usually two and even occasionally three.  Lucky me.  

If I were better at math I could tell you how many diapers that is and then convert it into a dollar amount (factoring in inflation of course) but I'm not so I'll just tell you it's been a lot.  Like, I could probably buy a new car or have major reconstructive surgery on my child ravaged body.

Life has never been better.



  1. congrats!!!!!

    you dont know the depths of my jealousy

  2. I guess that means I have 8+ years of diapers to look forward to. I'll have to keep a running count so when my kids turn 18 they can reimburse me for the cost of diapers.

  3. And as you enter the freedom from diapers, I plunge head first into another two years of diapers. Oh, the things we endure for the small people we cherish. =0)

  4. Lol at child ravaged body. Oh I can relate after having baby #3!

    Congrats on the diaper milestone. The cost savings alone! New shoes for mama!


I wanna hear what you have to say, so write. Pretty please.
