What is your favorite cloth diaper? I love my FuzziBunz

What is your nighttime diapering routine? FuzziBunz with an extra insert

What is your particular style of parenting? We raise our children to know and love the one who created them."I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." III John 1:4

What were your reasons for cloth diapering? I wish I could say that I have cloth diapered all my children...but I can't. When my 2year old was about 8 months she was having awful rashes. A friend of mine let me borrow her fuzzibunz. She said her daughter never had a diaper rash. I fell in love with them. When I became pregnant with our last daughter I decided I was going to CD. Which was a great decision... she broke out in a rash in the hospital from the disposables... I was glad to get her little bottom in fluff.

What is your favorite meal to prepare for your family? We are total foodies here. Hubby and I love to find new and delicious recipes. But our go to meal that we all love would have to be...Pepperoncini Beef...Whats that you ask...Kinda like a philli cheese stake sandwich, but the meat cooks in a crockpot with Pepperoncini's and garlic all day...So supper simple yet delicious.

What is your favorite thing about being a mom? Least favorite? The different traits in each child, I love their faces when they discover something new, like when they finally realize they are reading, the stages each child goes through, the smiles from my baby girl just from the sight of mommy, the hugs and kisses, the singing...this list could go on and on...I guess my least favorite would have to be... The misunderstanding...you know, when mommy KNOWS what is going on, punish accordingly, to find out that what I KNEW was not what happend.... I praise the Lord for forgiving children... Mommies...never be to proud to say your sorry to your kids. Be a good example!

What do you do to make time for yourself? Dates with my Hubby are very refreshing... Spending time in my Bible and praying, We also have "quiet time" after lunch, the younger girls take naps and the older girls sit on the couch and read a book... And cooking is very relaxing to me.

Favorite Quote: "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."  Prov.3:5&6

What advice do you have for new cloth diapering moms? Don't be afraid to ask for help from mom's who have been cloth diapering. Be willing to adjust your washing routine to find what works best for you. And it doesn't have to be super expensive...find a brand you like and buy enough for two days...I started with just 12 added 3 more and thats that...buy used, get lots of pictures before you buy though. If you want to buy new find a good website that has free shipping, like Cloth Diaper Inc., They also have layaways which is a great choice too...And if your a person who can't pass up all those cute prints you see on fluff swap pages...don't look...lol

Super Power? This is a tough one... had to get my girls advise on this question. When I asked..."If mommy had a super power, what would it be?" my Lainey bug shouted out...."LOVE" ain't that sweet....
