I signed up for the Flats and Handwashing Challenge almost two months ago. At the time I was thinking "This will work out perfectly, that's the last week of my maternity leave." As the event quickly approached, my perspective suddenly changed to "Oh my gosh, that's the last week of my maternity leave: I am way too busy to handwash diapers." Between wrapping up writing projects for work, trying to cram in all the kids' last minute doctors/dentists appointments before daycare started, and finishing all the other things that needed to get done, I was feeling a little overwhelmed. To add more excitement, I had a 2-month old with terribly sensitive skin and he had broken out into another diaper rash. I had fully decided "No way, I'm just too busy for this."
