Becca Eisen of Goleta, California, and mom to the adorable and quite busy Cruz, shares with us how cloth diapers hasn’t changed her a bit, and she shares with us her addition for lipstick and lip gloss (we feel the same way around here!). Enjoy!
1. Cloth diapers have change my life… In many ways, cloth diapering hasn’t changed my life, which is a good thing! I’m not a slave to laundry like I feared I would be. I have not spent a lot of money on my diaper stash, which I had worried about. I have had to change very little about my life in order to become a cloth diapering family.
In a bigger sense, cloth diapering has changed my life because I feel empowered as a mom to make the best decisions for my family, even when they seem difficult or against the norm. I’ve been so proud that our family has embraced cloth diapering.
2. The first thing I do when I wake up is…. head downstairs for some quiet time. I try to wake up before everyone else to spend a few minutes in silence centering myself, praying, and planning for the day. It doesn’t always happen, but it’s so much more energizing than waking up to the baby over the monitor.
3. No matter how much time it takes, I always…. take my son Cruz with me to the grocery store. Counter-intuitive, right? I’ve found that everyone is so much nicer and more helpful when he’s along!
4. The most unusual thing in my diaper bag or purse is….. my massive collection of lipsticks and lip gloss. I may not have showered for days, my hair might be in a perma-ponytail, and my yoga pants will certainly be covered in drool, but wearing lipstick makes me feel pulled together.
5. If I could live in one outfit for the rest of my life, it would be…. a maxi dress, long cardigan, and sandals.
