I would like to start with a confession. I asked my mom for diapers, disposable ones, as a gift for this new baby. We don't use disposables for reasons of cost, health, and the environment. I have already put in the request, though, and I'm pretty sure she's gotten us the package.
Still, I am looking for other ways to make my life easier while we transition into new baby life. There is a placenta recipe I wanted to try, and it looks like it would be good with rigatoni, so I was thinking of buying store bought pasta, just this once.
I was also thinking of buying a package of paper plates to cut down on my dish duty. We would be buying them ourselves; we can afford one package. The environmental effect will be much less than my scandalous diapers. But it doesn't quite sit right with me. Maybe I just feel real guilty about the diapers. What do you think? Should I buy them?
Please, take my poll and let me know.
