4) A Mom in the Making shares a very candid look at why she is not cloth diapering. I somewhat cloth diapered my twins and my last baby. But it was not 100%. And I agree with what A Mom in the Making says, “We can only be super mom in so many ways.”.

5) Do you love doing  chalkboard paint projects? The Thinking Closet pulled together 20 DIY Chalkboard Projects. Many of these make awesome gifts!
