Cacie Robichaux loves knowing that cloth diapering her little one won’t have her contributing tons of disposables to land fills. Let’s get to know this cloth diapering mom a bit more:
Q. How have cloth diapers changed your life?
A. Cloth diapers have helped me prevent putting disposable diapers on my daughter. Cloth diapers are also great for the environment, and it makes me feel good to know that instead of adding 8-10 disposable diapers per day to a land fill, I am simply adding 11 worn down cloth diapers after two years of use. Not to mention I am saving approximately $1500 on diapers.
Q. What is your funniest diapering changing, poop or pee story?
A. My husband tried to help me in the very early baby days by changing a nightly diaper. It was 2 am, and although my baby was crying three feet from our bed, I had to wake my husband to change my daughter’s diaper. As he was getting up he asked me where the baby was located. I told him she was crying right next to the bed. He then proceeded to the baby’s room without the baby. Needless to say, the baby did not get a proper diaper change that night. He actually changed her in her pack-n-play next to our bed and did not snap the diaper shut. I awoke the next morning to find my daughter covered in poop from head to toe.
Q. What do you find most rewarding about motherhood?
A. At this point the most rewarding thing about motherhood is the beautiful smile I’m greeted with every morning as I lift my daughter out of her crib for her feeding. It’s so wonderful to see her smile as I open the door to her room rather than the unhappy cries I used to receive in her younger days.
Q. What was the last movie you watched / or last book you read? Tell us about it.
A. I enjoy reading while feeding my daughter as well as when she is taking her daily naps. I am re-reading all of the Patricia Cornwell novels I read as a teenager. Reading the same books over a decade later I realize there are so many things I did not understand or catch the first time around. It is almost like reading the books for the first time. I really love holding my napping baby in one hand while reading a Cornwell novel in the other.
Q. If you had 24 hours of freedom to do anything you wanted (and money wasn’t an object), what would you do?
A. I would put my family and friends on an early morning flight to Destin, FL. I would have the outlet mall open early so all of my guests could have a shopping spree before regular store hours. If the item fits on the plane for the ride home, then they can have it. Once the shopping is done, everyone will head to the beach for a full day of fun in the sun. Finally, we will have a great dinner, my treat, before heading back home.
