Plastic Pants Blowing In The BreezeThat about describes our clothes line at our cottage in Canada. I would hang them outside for a short time along with my cloth pullup diapers after washing them out. It didn't take long for them to dry out due the usual brisk breeze that passes by our cottage overlooking the bay. The wind would catch the pants just so and they would "balloon" out as a result and take on a puffy appearance that was somewhat cute.
It reminded me of a much earlier era when it was not uncommon to see cloth diapers and plastic pants hanging on the clothes lines. You could tell if the plastic baby pants were for a playmate or one of the local babies or young toddlers by the size of the baby pants swinging in the breeze. You could figure on a chum being a bedwetter if his bigger plastic baby pants were out there for all to see. If the famikly had just little babies and your friend in the family, rest be assured your friend would take some razing over who the big baby panties were for. You couldn't use the flatfold diapers hanging on the line to determine this as prefolds weren't available or not used very often, so the same diapers were used for the kids of all ages. But those plastic baby pants gave it away, pure and simple.
