Well, the hubs read my last post and laughed out loud at my comment about drinking coffee. So, in the spirit of full disclosure, the truth is I’m not a coffee drinker. I just said that to sound cool and mainstream. When I say coffee what I’m really referring to is caffiene. Coffee = caffeine. What I actually drink when I need some caffiene is a Coca Cola. So coffee is code for a Coke. I’m a little embarrassed/proud of how much I love to drink Coke so I try hide how much I drink by throwing in the word for most people’s caffiene addiction to throw the heat off of me. I’m such a good friend! While you run to Starbucks for a latte, I’ll run to McDonalds (their Coke is the best, am I right?!) and its a win win!
But I digress. I started this blog because I need a place to process my crazy, sleep deprived thoughts. I also need an outlet for my snarkiness that won’t get me in trouble. You see, I often say things impulsively that come across as unkind and thoughtless and immediately wish I could take it back. Case in point: Nice boy in high school I was somewhat acquainted with, “Kacie, what are you doing this weekend?” me: “Nothing with you!”. What?! Who says that?! Think, Kacie, think!
Besides all of that, I am passionate about cloth diapering and baby wearing. Many people have asked me about these things so I decided to create a place to share what I’ve learned. By no means am I an expert on cloth diapering, but it’s on my bucket list to be one (bet you didn’t think you’d ever hear anyone say that!). I’m just learning about the significance of baby wearing and am excited to share what I’m learning. Learning about different baby carriers and carrying positions can really make your head hurt, so my goal is to break down the information and share the basics. As a side note, I love seeing others wear their babies but get do nervous when they are not doing it safely. I hope to promote a little bit about safe baby wearing on this blog.
This brings me to the point of this post: why call this space lulu Kangaroo? Lulu is my daughter’s nickname, and since I love to wear her she’s my little kangaroo baby. For the purposes of this blog, I’ll call her Roo. Yes, I know kangaroo babies are called Joeys. (Incidentally did you know all marsupial babies are called Joeys? Not just kangaroos and koalas but also wombats, tasmanian devils, possoms and opossums. Who knew there were 2 kinds of possom type creatures?).
So that’s it: Promote safe baby wearing, share the cloth diaper love, and ramble on about life’s intricacies.
