Since the Happy Baby has been in the NICU for so many weeks, he no longer fits in size 1 diapers!
And I had sooooooooooooo many boxes that people had gifted to us just before his birth.
I returned several (telling store clerks that you have a baby in the NICU will pretty much guarantee any special requests – even without a receipt! :-)), but decided to keep a few for such a time as this…
Yesterday the Happy Buddy and I went on a Secret Mission.
We headed over to our friend’s house – who recently had a baby – and left a little surprise on her doorstep. 🙂
Can you think of someone with a new baby?
It’s kind of hard to get out with a newborn in tow, so maybe you’ll be used by the Lord to provide at just the right moment!
Plus, diapers are quite expensive… A box that you didn’t have to pay for is something to celebrate, for sure.
Add this outing to your Summer Bucket List and make a new mommy blessed!
Happy Ding Dong Diaper Ditch-ing! 🙂
Julie, you are such a blessing to mommies!!! God has given you the gift of blessing others. You amaze me to see what God is doing through you. Be blessed my sweet dear.
You are so thoughtful!!!! God bless you with thoughtful people to bless you as you bless others. Makes me smile to see random acts of kindness.
With our fouth baby, our church threw a diaper shower for us, complete with diaper pin decorated cake from the pastor’s wife. We didn’t need anything otherwise, but those diapers (in all sizes) were a huge blessing!
I’m sure those new parents are very appreciative!
Even in the middle of the storms you are facing right now, here you are, thinking of how you can make others lives easier. You are one amazing lady, Julie. I thank God for helping me “find” you, you inspire me every day. Love love love to you.
This is a great idea!
You make me smile!

Your blog is fabulous. Thank you for sharing.
Your review and recommendation on the book Mom Enough was life changing.
I quit my fast paced career to stay at home with my now 2 kiddos (3 and 10 months); and reading your book suggestion put my whole ( what am I doing with my days, am I making a difference) attitude in heavenly perspective.
Thank you for the recommendation. Thank you for your honesty and thank you for taking the time out of your days to encourage and help fellow families.
I appreciate you!
