Ugly shoes, addictive diapers?

"Does this diaper make my butt look big?"

This quote was on a kitchy baby t-shirt I got as a gift that I under-appreciated and swiftly donated when I had my first baby. I mean really, how tacky right? Except now I'm dying to have that t-shirt back because the irony is I'm a hippy lady now who uses cloth diapers. And guess what? Cloth diapers make their butts look big! Hilarious!
Perhaps cloth diapers can be filed under things I previously assumed were for lesbians, but are actually just functional with a mild touch of ugly. See also: Keens, 4-wheel drive wagons and mulch. I swear to God if you would have asked me five years ago when I had attitude like this . . .

 . . . if I would ever wear shoes as ugly as these . . .

 . . . I would have told you to take your hairy armpits on a hike. But the truth is with two kids I need flats and when I drag their stroller through ankle-deep sand at the beach, I need a water proof shoe that won't fall apart. Golf claps for Keens. PAINFUL, reluctant golf claps for Keens. 
Anyway, cloth diapers might be a touch cumbersome but they are also addicting in some way I cannot yet describe. Do I just enjoy laundry? Not really. But look at this hilarious baby butt!

Does this diaper make my butt look big? YES! 
Damn, where is that t-shirt.
Never mind. I can't pull the trigger on those ugly shoes. I guess no beach for us this summer.

  • Yep. I also cannot describe the addiction, but it is REAL, dude. And that diaper is hilarious! What a cute little Stella Bell! Is that a one-size BG? I haven't even tried those out yet on my new one...go you!

    That's exactly what it is! Ha, what if I stuffed a doubler in there? Oh, cloth diaper humor. *snort*

  • Check out Etsy. Lots of cute onesies and even some diaper covers to make the toosh look even cuter :)

    Ooh, I need to explore!

  • I totally support the cloth diapers, but cannot get behind those shoes. There's got to be something flat an functional that doesn't look like a neon foot-prison.

    Oh, if you can find one PLEASE HELP. Sadly, I Keens really do fit the bill, but when it came time to check-out on Zappos, I couldn't bring myself to click. Ugh. They are so ugly.

    Why are they so cute on kiddos but so ugly on us?

  • In reply to VelvetMinxx:

    Try Top Siders. They have loafers (deck shoes) that are flat, comfy and waterproof. My sister swears by them. Plus it gives you that whole Miami Vice look if paired with pastels. They also have styles that are a bit more like a ballet flat/sneaker hybrid that looks logical and comfy. And most of them run around a logical, budget friendly $50.

    I should have known to come to you to begin with. Danke, doll.

    I don't know if you are a fan of Crocs, but check out their website. They are more than just clogs. They have cute styles (sandals, ballet flats, etc).
