A Lost Diaper

Somewhere, there is a land filled with lost keys, paper clips, pens, and game pieces, socks- all those little things you're constantly replacing. Where do they all go? I'd like to know, because I have a couple of diapers there!

It's pretty annoying when I finish diaper laundry and find a stray diaper that escaped the pail. Usually it's a diaper that the grandparents forgot to stick in the wet bag or that my husband put NEXT to the pail but not actually in it. These diapers are quickly rinsed and wisked into the pail for the next load. Sometimes, though, I have a vague feeling that we're missing some diapers. A cover here, an insert there. I think they live with the unmatched socks for a while, then find a place to pop up and surprise me.

Yesterday I realized that 2 diapers are missing from my daughter's stash- a Knickernappies diaper and a Green Acre Designs pocket. I can't really recall the last time we used them. A photo of my daughter in one of the diapers made me remember them. Hopefully they are clean, as all of the missing diapers I've had turn up have been.

I'll be on the lookout for these diapers. They probably were taken out of the diaper bag, were mixed in with the "too small" diapers or accidentally put away with the winter clothes. When I do find them, it will be nice to have them back-almost like getting new diapers :)

Are you missing any diapers right now?

I'm always missing diapers. One turned up under the baby's dresser. One somehow got loose in my car. I have no idea how long it was there before I found it.

Last week we were at a wedding, and in the business I love my daughter's diaper bag. It had one of my favorite diapers in it. I left messages for anyone that I could think of...finally it turned up... I was sooo thankful when it did!
