If you've read this blog for any amount of time you probably know that I love being a mom. Everly isn't my whole world but she's my favorite part. And lets be honest, while she's tiny she's most of my world. One thing I really love now that I'm a parent is connecting with others who are on a similar journey. Shelly is my best friend and I love that we're at the same point in our lives. We both have small children and we talk about them a lot. How do we teach them to share? How do we teach them to be in control of their little emotions? How do we teach them to say "no" when it's appropriate? It's a never ending talk between the two of us. How do we be the best mom we can? Some things Shelly and I do are similar and some are different but we can always talk in a nonjudgmental way about things going on in our lives and I LOVE that. Shelly is my strongest parenting connection but I love that I have so many more.
This year I've teamed up with MommyCon to help spread the word about them and what they do. If you've never heard of MommyCon this is as basic as it gets: "MommyCon is a boutique style natural parenting convention focused on bringing modern families together to discuss, learn and grow together. A day at MommyCon features over a dozen speakers, workshops, shopping and more!" How wonderful does that sound? I'm hoping to get to an event later this year and I cannot wait!
Today we're teaming up to offer a pair of tickets to all three days of Camp MommyCon in Denver! That's right, TWO TICKETS TO CAMP MOMMYCON! The three day event starts at 4pm on Friday, June 20 and goes till 10am on Sunday, June 22. There are all sorts of events over the three days. A few that sound extra wonderful to me are...
- Babywearing 101 (you get to try on all different types of carriers and learn how to properly use them)
- Cloth Diaper 101 (because they're adorable but intimidating if you don't know what you're doing)
- Birth Choices (hello, I'm a doula, HOORAY FOR BIRTH CHOICES!)
- Toddler Cooking Class (anything with food, right?)
- Body Love (I am ALL about the self-love)
- Essential Oils (yes, please!)
- Mommy & Me Yoga (E & I already do this!)
- SO MANY MORE! If you want a full list of events for Camp MommyCon visit their page!
So if this appeals to you (it's for ALL parents, really) click on the little gadget below and enter to win those tickets! If you can't make it to Denver there are a few more events this year that the tickets can also be used for.
honest disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post in any way. I just really love MommyCon and the parenting connections they encourage and I was excited to help spread the word! Images c/o MommyCon.
