Pay Phone” (Maroon 5) by Melanie M.

I’m on a smart phone
Trying to log on
All of our dough I’ve spent on fluff.
Where have our dimes gone?
You say it’s all wrong.
I say we’ll never have enough.

Yeah, I, I know it’s hard to remember,
The parents we used to be…
It’s even harder to picture,
That we used to use sposies.

You said it’s too late to go green,
But is it too late to try?
The money wasted was obscene,
All of the trees they chopped down . . .

No more wasted bills,
On diapers that spill,
Now time for more hemp,
‘cause its heaven sent.
Stuffin’ those pockets,
Like prongs in sockets,
Make sure it’s real snug,
Oops we can’t make rent.

I’m on a smart phone
Trying to log on
All of our dough I’ve spent on fluff.
Where have our dimes gone?
You say it’s all wrong.
I say we’ll never have enough.

If happy ever after did exist,
I would now be holding bumGenius.
Breastfed poop, the diaper’s full of it.
Adjust the snaps to find the perfect fit.

Mud on the tires”  (Brad Paisley) by Amy H.

I’ve got some big news
My mom finally came through
And I’m holdin’ the receipt to a brand new stash’o fluff
Have you been outside it sure is a nice night
How about a little test fit, try out this stuff?
There’s a place I know about where disposables run out
And we can try out the Thirsties™ hemp
Come on now what do you say
Girl, I can hardly wait to get a little poo on these diapers!!
[Chorus]
‘Cause it’s a good night
To avoid us being soaked out in the moonlight
Try out a KiwiPie™
I’ve got the perfect wrap in mind
It’s down the hall and up the stairs
We got to get a little poo on the diapers
Moonlight on a fluffy bum
Wrapped up in a FuzziBunz™
Sun sets about nine this time of year
We can throw a blanket down
Crawl around on the playground
And more stars than you can count on a night this clear
I tell you what we need to do is grab a swaddle wrap or two
And make us a stinky pie
And then with a little luck we might just get stuck
With a little poo on the diapers
 
[Repeat Chorus]
And then with a little luck we might just get stuck
With a little poo on the diapers
Waterloo” (ABBA) by Susan M.

My my, with Pee-and-Poo the sposies did surrender
Oh yeah, and that breast-fed poo was somehow always getting a-way
The sposie stored on the shelf
Is clearly ha-ting itself

Pee-and-Poo, prefolds and covers won the war
Pee-and-Poo, bamboo fitteds absorb even more
Pee-and-Poo, couldn’t escape if it wanted to
Pee-and-Poo, the cloth is much stronger than you!
Pee-and-Poo, finally holding in Pee-and-Poo

My my, sposies tried to hold them back but they were stronger
Oh yeah, and now it seems the only choice is putting on the fluff
And now I just have to choose
Which cloth diaper matches her shoes!

Pee-and-Poo, need to stuff pockets even more
Pee-and-Poo, the inserts are all in one drawer
Pee-and-Poo, choosing cotton, hemp, or bamboo
Pee-and-Poo, maybe I’ll use microfiber, too
Pee-and-Poo, finally holding in Pee-and-Poo

So now I just have to choose
Do I like All-in-ones or –twos??

Pee-and-Poo, couldn’t escape if it wanted to
Pee-and-Poo, the cloth is much stronger than you!
Pee-and-Poo, finally holding in Pee-and-Poo,
Pee-and-Poo, the cloth is much stronger than you!
Pee-and-Poo, finally holding in Pee-and-Poo

Friends TV Show Theme Song “I’ll be there for you” (Remembrants) by Lesley

So no one told you cloth was going to be this way
Your laundry soaks, you’re not broke, your baby smells okay
It’s like you’re always thinking about what’s on baby’s rear
When you’ve used them for a day, a week, a month, or even all year

Cloth will be there for you, when the pee starts to pour
Cloth will be there for you, like sposies weren’t before
Cloth will be there for you, and it will even hold your poo

You’re still in bed at 10, I put you down at 8
You’re still leak free, your wool is working great
My friends told me to try these
I’m so excited, It’s holding so many pees

Cloth will be there for you, when the pee starts to pour
Cloth will be there for you, like sposies weren’t before
Cloth will be there for you, and it will even hold your poo

No sposie could ever contain me, no onesie could ever stay clean
Seems like cloth’s the only one who can handle my puréed green beans
Some pockets to face daycare with, make through all the rests with
Some inserts I’ll always stuff with, I’m thankful you’re not covered in poo

It’s like you’re always thinking about what’s on baby’s rear
When you use cloth for a day, a week, a month, or even a year

Cloth will be there for you, when the pee starts to pour
Cloth will be there for you, like sposies weren’t before
Cloth will be there for you, and it will even hold your poo

Brick House” (Commodores) by Rachelle B.

She has a fluffy butt, she’s fluffy fluffy
and just lettin it all poof out and she has a fluffy butt
and like super cute and it holds poop
Ain’t holding nothing back, she’s got a fluffy butt
We’re stuffing together and my hubby knows
this is where his money goes.
She knows she’s got everything
that a mama needs to clean a butt
How can she lose with the soft wipes she use
8 1/2-8 1/2-squared, what a perfect wiping hand
She has a fluffy butt, she’s fluffy fluffy
and just lettin it all poof out and she has a fluffy butt
and like super cute and it holds poop
Ain’t holding nothing back, she’s got a fluffy butt
Yeah she’s the one, the only one not smellin’ like chemicals!
The prints she wears, her adorable ways
Make a mom not wish for potty training days
She knows her cloth diaper is bulletproof
Sure enough to knock a strong man to his knees
She has a fluffy butt, she’s fluffy fluffy
and just lettin it all poof out and she has a fluffy butt
and like super cute and it holds poop
Ain’t holding nothing back
fluffy butt yeah, she’s fluffy fluffy
just lettin’ it all poof out
fluffy butt yeah she’s the one the only one
not smellin’ like chemicals, yeah.
swish it down, swish it down, swish it down, yeah.

Carly Rae Jepson, “Call me maybe?” by Elspeth and Tim

I pooped a lot you can tell,
Don’t lean in, you can smell
I looked at you, you can tell,
And now its running away

I’d trade my soul for clean pants,
Pennies and dimes for dry wipes,
I drank too much fruit juice,
And now its running away

Your stare is knowin’,
Brown onesie, stink is showin’
Wet pants, wind is blowin’
You know that I’ve been goin’ goin’

Hey, I just wet you,
And this is crazy,
But I’m not leaking,
So cloth me, maybe?

It’s hard to look at,
At your pants baby,
But here’s my diaper,
So cloth me, maybe?

Hey, I just wet you,
And this is crazy,
But I’m not leaking,
So cloth me, maybe?

And all the other diapers,
Try to chafe me,
But here’s my diaper,
So cloth me, maybe?

You took your time at the mall,
It took me no time at all,
I filled it up full,
Please change me today

I cry, and burrow and squeal
Just smell this it’s real
I didn’t know I would feel it,
Please change me today

Your stare is knowin’,
Brown onsie, stink is showin’
Wet pants, wind is blowin’
You know that I’ve been goin’ goin’

Hey, I just wet you,
And this is crazy,
But I’m not leaking,
So cloth me, maybe!

It’s hard to look at,
At your pants baby,
But here’s my diaper,
So cloth me, maybe?

Hey, I just wet you,
And this is crazy,
But I’m not leaking,
So cloth me, maybe!

And all the other diapers,
Try to chafe me,
But here’s my diaper,
So cloth me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
my pampers leaked out so bad
my pampers leaked out so bad
they leaked out so, so bad

Before you came into my life
my pampers leaked out so bad
And you should know that
they leaked out so, so bad

It’s hard to look at,
At your pants baby,
But here’s my diaper,
So cloth me, maybe?

Hey, I just wet you,
And this is crazy,
But I’m not leaking,
So cloth me, baby!

And all the other diapers,
Try to chafe me,
But here’s my diaper,
So cloth me, maybe?

Before you came into my life
my pampers leaked out so bad
my pampers leaked out so bad
they leaked out so, so bad

Before you came into my life
my pampers leaked out so bad
And you should know that

So cloth me, maybe?

And one more cute one for today…

The Doors, “Light My Fire” by Jessica B.

“Stuff My Diaper”

I’m sorry that it’s quarter to two
I’m sorry that I’m such a loud cryer
But Mom I just need to tell you
that my bum could really be much dryer

Come on mama, stuff my diaper
Come on mama, stuff my diaper
Try to get my damp bum dryer

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the night while you’re tired
Try now we can only lose
And our soaking fluff will hang on clothes wire

Come on mama, stuff my diaper
Come on mama, stuff my diaper
Try to get my bum much dryer, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
stuffing inserts and prefolds while you’re tired
So many inserts to pick from so just choose
while the fresh cleaned fluff dries on the clothes wire

Come on mama, stuff my diaper
Come on mama, stuff my diaper
Try to get my bum much dryer, yeah

You know that I should really thank you
You know that I am now so much dryer
Thanks for waking up again at quarter to two
Mama I’m so sorry for being such a loud cryer!

Come on mama, stuff my diaper
Come on mama, stuff my diaper
Try to get my bum much dryer, yeah
Try to get my bum much dryer
Try to get my bum much dryer
Try to get my bum much dryer

We loved reading all your tweets and decided to share them here to help inspire others!  So, pasted below are most of, if not all, of the tweets we received during Twitter Thursday yesterday.

  • Today I went through the Starbucks drive through & I paid for the car behind me, something I have always wanted to do.
  • Purchasing five $5 coffee gift cards for the Barista to pay for drinks for the next five customers.

  • Pay for dinner secretly for another table. we did this in November, and were the recipient of one last week!

  • I’ve had a sick kiddo all week, we’ve been to the doctor 3 times this week. :( Maybe cookies for our doctor and her nurse?
  • This year a random act of kindness for us is homemade cookie platters for the neighbors!
  • How about taping quarters to a vending machine ?
  • Do grocery shopping for an elderly.  It’s cold, snowy, slippery. I am sure they will appreciate.
