Come Enjoy A Great Day At MommyCon Orlando

You know what isn't always so fun? Shopping for baby & toddler items. Or even maternity items! Going into places like buybuy Baby or Babies R Us can seem really overwhelming and you either get harassed by a sales associate, or you can't find one within an earshot (or a mile). I know that when I was pregnant and searching for great items, I wanted to be able to casually shop and talk with other moms that had actually used the items. Is there a place like that available?

Come Enjoy A Great Day At MommyCon Orlando


 Yes! Yes there is!! It is called MommyCon and it is FANTASTIC! It is an entire con dedicated to MOMMY life! Some of the top products will be available to try out, discuss, and purchase there! Whether it is a baby carrier, cloth diapers, cutesy bibs, or maybe some maternity belly bands.. They have everything! Not only that, but they provide educational seminars all throughout the con.

HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!

So you can go and get some help with potty training, car seat safety, babywearing, whatever you need! There is even a section to help with all of your feminine health (like how to use menstrual cups... how cool!). If you can think of it, they have it. If you can't think of it, they will let you know what it is and teach you!

Oh, and did I mention that they have an entire play area for your little ones, so you all can get a break? So don't worry about the little people getting too worked up and overloaded--they will have their time.

How To Not Tick Off A Special Needs Mom

As a mother, you will always have someone telling you how to parent. They will tell you what to do and what not to do. They will teach you about your child, since obviously we can't figure these things out on our own, right?

It's irritating. Exhausting. Completely rude, and yet, people still think it is an acceptable thing to do.

5 Reasons I Love To Wear My Big Kid


 So, to share a bit of backstory here--I have been babywearing for 14 years. I began with my youngest sister and picked it up more when my first child was born (sister & daughter are only 4/5 years apart). At that time, I got my first wrap and I tandem wore my sister and my daughter. I actively wore my daughter, Miss Quirky, into her 4th year and sporadically after that. I thought "You don't wear older kids.. How would that work?". Silly me, I just didn't even know any better.

Mothers, Stop Shaming Your Beautiful Bodies!

Today I would like to talk about something that is personal and incredibly important. Not just to me, but to women everywhere. More specifically, I want to address Mom's everywhere. It's a subject that hits close to home and I see it on a daily basis and it seriously just makes me sad. I wrote an Instagram post about it a couple weeks ago, which you can read here, but I want to dive into it more.
