Meet February's Spotlight MOM: Karen Wendt

Name: Karen Wendt

City: Lawrence, Kansas

Mom to: Lydia, 8-month-old (pictured)

Here are her thoughts on the importance of cloth diapering and the excitement she shares with her own mom!

Why do you cloth diaper your baby?
I can't fathom buying something to use once and throw it out. Disposables just seem to be a waste of money. The super cuteness of CDs is a bonus!

What two words best describe your parenting style?
Orthodox - being Orthodox Christian is central to our family and factors into our daily life. Frugal - we CD, use second hand clothes and make homemade baby food.

What does being a mom mean to you?

Everything! It's the best (and most challenging) gift!

What do you and your baby do for fun?
Lydia's new favorite game is chasing our cats. We also read books, go to the park, and just take time to giggle.
How did you learn about cloth diapering?
I had always wanted to [cloth diaper] and did a lot of research when I got pregnant. I also have friends who CD to talk to.

What is your favorite thing about cloth diapering?

My favorite thing about cloth diapering has to be how excited and on board my mother is. She's always telling people about it and showing them pictures. She even grabs diapers to show people the real thing whenever she has a chance!

If you had one super power, what would it be and why?

Point and clean. I just don't have time to clean the way I need to and it drives me CRAZY.
