Wow! Over 24 hours with no misses!

I broke my washing machine last week.
So I’ve been doing lots and lots of nakey butt time to avoid laundry.  Now, at some stages nakey butt time increases laundry because misses often require a prefold for mopping up and maybe washing a blanket or mat or whatever gets peed on.  But at some point, nakey […]
