Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

Lil' Swimmers and Pull Ups are NOT Created Equal!
Just in case you are ever tempted to try swapping the two out, it isn't worth it!
I ran out of pull-ups for Gracie for nights about a week ago. I, not wanting to mess up that weeks budget with an additional unexpected eight dollar expense, decided to use my remaining Lil' Swimmers to do the job instead. BAD IDEA!
Apparently, these things do fairly well with holding stool inside the diaper, but urine, not so good. In fact, it is just like they wet their pants when they pee in these things. The pee just goes straight through. How does that make you feel about swimming with all those babies eh? Does it make ya think twice?
Gracie woke me up in the middle of the night last night with "Mom! I'm all wet!" Sure enough, she was all wet. I guess that explains that nasty butt rash that popped up in the past couple of days!
Lesson Learned: Don't ever use Lil' Swimmers instead of Pull Ups!
