momfilter is my favorite parenting website right now. it’s a mix of inspiration, visual and in words, done in a quiet way that i really appreciate. the site has a new interview with yoko inoue about her move back to japan with her husband and son. i met yoko when she photographed our apartment for brooklyn modern. i remember her telling me her wonderful birth story.
josh thought this empty space was too bare so he bought a really nice turkish (?) rug on a recent trip to his hometown in new hampshire. these days, most photographing ends like the last photo!
britain asked in a comment what i use for a diaper bag, and i use the bucket tote from utility canvas. it met a lot of my criteria when i was looking for a diaper bag– be able to carry on my arm or across my chest, have lots of pockets, be washable, be a practical color/material, and not made with nylon or other synthetic fabric (even though a wipe-able nylon is practical i’m just really picky about natural fabrics). it has pockets on the inside and outside which is really nice for keeping things separated and organized. the only con for me is that it’s sometimes bigger than i need. when i’m going out for the day it’s perfect– but when i’m just going down the street to the playground i often take a regular canvas tote instead. it closes with a snap, not a zipper, which might be a con for some people but i don’t mind.
