Confession: I have made a new lifestyle choice

While perusing around Etsy the other day, I came across this:

And I thought "Is that what I think it is?"

And so I looked at the rest of her Etsy store and found out that, yes, that is what I think it is and if you're related to me and not female I am sorry you had to see that. You'll probably want to stop reading now.

They're called "Muffies", which made me laugh so my curiosity took hold and I ordered the one pictured that originally piqued my interest.

Today in my mailbox I received TWO (2) packages from Pleat -- she had misaddressed one of the envelopes so I also got sent a package of 5. I sent her a message to find out if it was an error or a present, and it turns out it was both! Her error is my present!

So far I've tried them out (timing was excellent on the shipping) and I think I like this lifestyle.

I don't notice any plastic stuff sticking to body parts it shouldn't. Everything is staying in place, and it feels just like I'm wearing underwear.

Plus, how fun are the patterns? I don't feel like some kind of an invalid because I'm wearing some diaper or whatever ... these are ... fun!

I'm not sure if I'm 100% committed (I'll have to try the nighttime ones out, first, to see if they really are leak-proof) but this might be my new favorite female product.

And it's also a really great excuse to get permission to order from Etsy.

"Geoff, I'm SAVING us money in the long run!"

Sometimes husbands just don't get it.

I have absolutely no shame. I like to think it makes me charming.
