October Spotlight Family
My husband and I live in South Africa, and work for a mission agency. We have two amazing kiddos, a daughter who is nine, and a 16 month old stuntman.
What is the #1 reason you cloth diaper your baby? I told my husband that it was to save money; but honestly, it was mostly it was because cloth diapers are just irresistibly cute.
Who has been your biggest cloth diapering supporter/cheerleader? My husband, who knows we are saving money and now gets what I mean when I say cloth diapers are irresistibly cute.
What is your favorite diaper and why? I am a big fan of bumGenius pocket diapers; they fit great, work well, are easy to use, daddy-friendly... and irresistibly cute.
If you had one superhero power, what would it be and why? Flying; I would love to be able to nip across the ocean to visit family a bit more often.
Describe your parenting style using three words. Lead by example.
What is one product you absolutely can't live without? Wet bags.
How do you think being a parent has changed you? I think my relationship with my kids has changed the way I understand God's parenting of ME. I have become much more patient, compassionate and realistic towards myself and others. And I know for certain that I can function on way less sleep than I ever imagined possible.
