Earlier this summer, as Kay was getting her potty training on, I put out a call for a cloth diaper reviewer. I was completely blown away by the level of interest and number of responses that I received. Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to send an application! It took a long time to go through all the fantastic applications that came in, and it was a very hard decision to make, but today I’d like to introduce you to This West Coast Mommy’s newest contributors, Samantha and her adorable son Brooks!
Another west coast mommy, Samantha is a talented writer and gifted photographer. She’ll be focusing on bringing you cloth diaper reviews (of course) and reviews of other baby items, but she might also share a DIY or craft project every once in a while. I’ve asked Samantha to introduce herself to all of you, so here she is in her own words:
Hello readers! My name is Samantha, and I live equidistant between Seattle and Tacoma, Washington. Here are a few things you might like to know about me: I love any excuse to use the word equidistant, I’ve been a Pacific Northwest girl my whole life, and now my husband and I have the joy of raising our babies in this beautiful, one-of-a-kind corner of the world. I keep very busy (in the best way!) working as a stay-at-home mom to raise capable and compassionate little humans. And, for better or worse, I indulge in way too many hobbies to count. A few of my favorites include landscape photography, gardening, home decorating, and crafting. I just plain love surrounding myself with beautiful things both in the outdoors and in my home.
It’s a privilege to be a part of this awesome community and have an opportunity to share my reviews and ideas with you. But I can’t take all the credit. I’ve got to give a shoutout to my model and diaper-tester extraordinaire: my son Brooks. I must say, I’ve never worked with such an adorable subject before. Though he may not be the pinnacle of professionalism, he makes up for it in personality…he also accepts payment in Cheerios and fruit snacks, so that’s a plus.
Please join me in welcoming Samantha and Brooks to This West Coast Mommy!
