Friday Family Spotlight: Meet Anna’s Family

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Anna is a homebirthing, breastfeeding, homeschooling, cloth diapering, babywearing mama of FIVE. Oh yeah and she’s a knitter and a runner too! I have a feeling if I had the chance to meet Anna in person, her and I would be fast friends. 🙂 I am happy to have her family as our featured family this Friday.

What is your favorite Mom’s Milk Boutique Product?

My favorite Mom’s Milk Boutique product is the Bravado tank.  It’s especially nice in the winter when I want an extra layer.

What do you and your family like to do for recreation?

For fun, we like to play at the park, go for walks, eat ice cream, and watch football.

What is your favorite baby carrier and why?

My favorite carrier would be my Maya Wrap.  It’s the carrier that I have used the most since the newborn days. It’s easy to discreetly nurse a baby or toddler in.  My 2nd favorite would be my Ergo.

Describe your cloth diaper stash:

My cloth diaper stash consists of 3 dozen prefolds, 6 Thirsties snap duo covers, and several dozen homemade wipes.

What are some of your favorite “me” time indulgences?My favorite “me” time indulgences would be knitting, running, reading, chocolate, and yummy coffees.  Now finding the time for those things is another story.

What’s your number one secret for stretching a dollar?

My number one secret for stretching a dollar would be to cook from scratch.  Cooking from scratch is not only cheaper, but yummier and healthier too.

Share one special family tradition:

At birthdays, we always go around the table and each person has to say one thing that they like about the birthday boy or girl.

What is one of your favorite quotes?

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind. –Dr. Seuss
