The diaper business has gotten quite complicated.  I never really thought about it until I sent my husband to the store the other day since I have not yet mastered the grocery store with all 3 kids.  I needed diapers for the baby, and pull-ups for my 2 year old.  I have bought diapers approximately a million times, so I just walk up to what I need and grab it.  Here are the instructions I had to give my husband though; “the baby needs Pampers Swaddlers, Size 1.  Be sure not to get the Pampers ‘Baby Dry’ ( I don’t like those as much.  Actually, I have never met anyone who liked those.)  Then, get Huggies Learning Designs Pull-ups.  Size 2-3.  Oh, and we also need Huggies overnight diapers, Size 5”.  The instructions for buying wipes was just about as in-depth.  Anyway, I felt confident that I had sent him with enough information.

So he comes home, and I immediately see that I left out an important piece of information.  The pull-ups that he got for our 2 year old BOY are pink, with princesses on them.  I  was a psychology major, and therefore in favor of giving my kids gender-neutral experiences, but I have to draw the line somewhere!  Even 2 year olds know enough about the world to make fun of a boy wearing princess diapers.  Still, what options do I have now?  Take all 3 kids back to the store to exchange them?  I don’t think so!  So as I type this, he is sitting next to me wearing that pink pull-up.  Well, at least we have a good story for why Daddy can’t buy diapers any more. 🙂
