True Tests

There are many things that people say when its easy to say them, before you've been tested on your proclamations. Like parents who vow to only use cloth diapers (better for the environment) and make their own baby food (its so much healthier), or city-dwellers who condemn the suburbs (too many unsophisticated people), or fashionistas who scoff at a friend for wearing the same outfit 2 weeks in a row (so uncool).

When your baby wets through 10 diapers a day, cloth becomes a laundry disaster. You work 7:30am-8:00pm several days in a row and fishsticks are all you'd be able to 'cook' for the infant. When a studio apartment with no rooms and 1 closet costs $2100 a month, the suburbs become practical. And when those cloth diapers are clogging up the congested line for the washing machine, last week's unstained ensemble is the only feasible choice (when you spend your pre-baby life buying clothes, even last week's outfit is pretty well put together). And there's always organic detergent! My point: Never say never.
