MommyCon Memphis: Best. Day. Ever.
Y’all, I have SO enjoyed my parenting journey. My husband will be the FIRST to tell you that I have changed SO much over the past 3 years that its laughable. When we first had our baby, I was just focusing on making sure that she was taken care of and had the best products, but the older she got, the more I noticed that my “mainstream” products just weren’t doing the job for her. I never planned it, but I’ve been transitioning to the natural parenting life basically since I became a parent!
So in short, MommyCon is a natural parenting convention that’s held several times a year in various places across the US (and one in Canada). After quickly becoming addicted to my now favorite natural parenting store, Bohemian Baby, the next step was branching out and becoming a member of the natural parenting community and when I tell you that all the cloth diapering mamas were RAVING about MommyCon..like, no joke! Everybody LOVES MommyCon! So naturally, I wanted to check it out! I ended up getting lucky and winning a couple of tickets to the MommyCon of my choice. I originally chose Atlanta, but once I realized that my favorite cloth diapering company, Grovia, wasn’t going to be there, I switched my tickets to Memphis!
I know the reminder is unnecessary, but I’m in veterinary school and I planned a last minute trip back to my hometown the weekend before finals to go to MommyCon and it was a GREAT decision! Yes, packing up my 18 month old and driving 6 hours wasn’t fun, but the weekend away from my school and being surrounded by happy, crunchy mamas like myself was so surreal!
