Wacky Wednesday -- Diaper Double Duty

We have just begun potty training at the House of ZoKai and already I am dreaming of what to do with the disposable diapers soon to be left high and dry.

Although I pride myself on the fact that I fashion a fine looking diaper hat, a girl can only wear so many hats. So what do with the rest? What to do? What to do?

I did a little research and found the following suggestions:

Microwaveable heating pad (Not so sure I would toss a diaper in my microwave, but OK.), keeping a plant watered longer by putting a diaper in the bottom of the pot, and packing material for shipment of fine china (Somehow that just seems wrong.) all from Extraordinary Uses for Ordinary Things from Reader's Digest RD.com.

You can even make a "diaper cake" for a baby shower as seen here.

Who knew?

Oy, we're starting this, too. I'm terrified!

Love the new look here, by the way.

I'd love to start potty training Shea soon, too...

Please be sure to share your hits and misses along the way, ok? I hear girls are easier than boys to train, which is a huge relief for this Mom. Go girls!

Potty training looms near in my house. I'm so ready, but I'm not sure the twins are quite yet. How I long to say goodbye to diapers!

We've been wanting to potty-train for months. In addition to timing issues, she is so not interested. And she's way older than your girls. Help!!! (Just another thing her sister didn't do.)

The diaper cake looks a little scary.

I'm so glad to hear I'm not alone. I would love to hear about what works for you as you go along too.
