Jennica Prosky has a son (2) and a daughter (3 months), has been using cloth diapers on both since day one and is a big fan of Winnie the Pooh. Let’s get to know this cloth diapering mom a bit more:
Q. How have cloth diapers changed your life?
A. I wanted to use cloth after I was a nanny for little boy who was cloth diapered. It took some time for my husband to be comfortable with the idea. But since I am a stay at home mom and change 98% of the diapers, I knew it would not be an issue. At eight months, we were using 100% cloth with my son. My husband became a beliver in cloth. He was at work one day when a customer was talking to him about kids. The customer said something along the lines of “got to get that kid potty trained, because diapers are expensive.” My husband replied “we cloth diaper it costs pennies a day.” Now we have two in cloth and never need to spend a dime more on diapers (but of course I did because I wanted girly colors for our daughter). Cloth diapering changed not just my family’s life by saving us money, but I have since converted two other moms to cloth diapering their little ones.
Q. What is your funniest diapering changing, poop or pee story?
A. I think the funniest diaper changing story would be when my husband was changing our daughter for the first time. He was so uncomfortable. He did great and hardly made a mess, but I think he used 10 wipes and it took more then five minutes. He was so worried he would do it wrong.
Q. What do you find most rewarding about motherhood?
A. The smiles, giggles and hugs. I love just snuggling with my little ones and enjoy watching them learn every day.
Q. What was the last movie you watched / or last book you read? Tell us about it.
A. For my birthday, my husband took me to see the new “Winnie the Pooh” movie. It was my favorite cartoon growing up. The last book I read was “The Omen Machine” by Terry Goodkind. He is my favorite author. It is a spin-off of his “Sward of Truth” series. He is such a great writer. I have fallen in love with his characters and the way he portrays them.
Q. If you had 24 hours of freedom to do anything you wanted (and money wasn’t an object), what would you do?
A. Twenty four hours hmmm…I have always wanted to go to Florida and swim with the dolphins. Maybe fly in a hot air balloon and make a cake with Buddy Valastro.
