rain rain go away

Rainy season is allllllmost done and I have to say, I’m looking forward to some dryness in my life again. I used to really love rainy season – the beautiful skies,  pitter patter of rain drops on rooftops, an excuse to exfoliate my feet in mud. 

But with a baby, it has gotten a little stressful at times. We wash diapers daily and hang them to dry, but with the air (inside and out!) being so damp and wet, we’ve had a hard time getting things clean and useable in a timely fashion! I started a rotational system of drying on the line outside, then into the house to dry some more, then into the tubs again. 

I try really hard to let her clothes sit in a dark, fully dry space for three days to make sure that no bot fly eggs are able to thrive. These nasty little creatures lay eggs on wet clothing and then those eggs get into your skin and hatch little worms and its just gross. I’ve dealt with these things myself and I really don’t want to have to excavate any wiggly worms out of my porceline skin child! Leaving the clothes to dry for several days was only a problem once or twice as we literally ran out of anything clean/dry! But I want to say thank you to everyone who helped stock us with an obscene amount of cloth diapers and covers. You have made rainy season possible, bot-fly-free and rather cute and happy.
