Ever since I had started cloth diapering Nate, I really got into the whole idea. I didn't want to own my own store, or web site. I wanted to get into it by advertising for someone. Well, back in March, I approached a friend whom I bought my initial diapers from and a few since then. She own Jacks Magic Bean Stalk. Check it out: www.jacksmagicbeanstalk.com She and I met officially last night for a few hours. I will start with one home party here at the house. We will see how that goes. She is going to put together a "kit" for me to buy that consists of quite a selection of diapers, wipes, bottom cream that she has developed, slings, etc. All the diapers will be in Nate's size so that I can use him as a model when showing how to use the diapers. I do have a doll that might work too. I will use him when showing how to use the slings. She gave me business cards, brochures,and other types of cards to pass out to any store that will be ok with advertise. I don't know when I will have my first party. I am guessing as soon as I have my kit and supplies. I am excited, yet nervous that I will forget something when I need to order things for people. I will probably have Nikki here for the first time just so that I can have her watch and make sure all goes well. I am also going to be at her house making wipes and doublers, filling orders and shipping and possibly stocking for her.
Nate and I took off for the swimming pool today. Didn't know what he would think of it. It was pretty windy so I knew that the water would be cooler. He wasn't too sure of it all. He pretty much clung to me. I did have him walking around the wading area but he was clutching my hand the whole time. I would like to take him back so he gets used to it. This is the boy who loves to take baths! Go figure!
Nothing else is going on. Been wanting to declutter some rooms again. I think I will start on the bedroom. I have some clothes that need to go either to the basement in winter storage or goodwill. Jason I think needs to go thru all his tshirts and give to good will. He has so many that he hasn't touched some in a long ,long time.
Nikki and I met at St Louis Bread Co for our meeting. I knew towards the end, I wanted to get a pastry. We both got up to get one and they were closing the pastry side so they filled up bags with all kinds of pastries and were giving the bags away! I think I got at least $15 worth of goodies for free! I had no idea they did that. I had a chocolate croissant this morning. Yummy. Hmm, I wonder what I will have tomorrow morning! Pop something in the toaster oven to warm up. Yummy!
Now that I have talked about cleaning up the bedroom, I am ansy to get started. So I will sign off and bid all of you goodnight.
