when i lived at the monastery, people brought me all kinds of interesting gifts. among the stranger things i received (and certainly among my favourites!) was a roll of Hello Kitty duct tape. (i insist on calling it DUCT tape, although this particular roll was made by Duck brand.)
Duct tape can be used for an infinite number of things, not the least of which is constructing prom dresses. Duck brand duct tape comes in a variety of colours and prints. some are cool, and some are ridiculous.
initially, i didn’t really have too much use for it (apart from cutting it into shapes and making little stickers), and it sat in a drawer for a while.
but one day i discovered the BEST use for my Hello Kitty duct tape:
because diaper tabs BREAK, y’all!
it safely secures my daughter’s diaper until the next changing, and doesn’t come off until i take it off. plus it looks cutesy and badass all at once. i can’t think of anything else that would work as well. duct tape is PERFECT.
i can’t afford to throw unused diapers away just because the tab breaks!
has this ever happened to you? what did you do?
