I am counting down the days until Caleb and I venture off to MommyCon! Good news, it is only 3 hours away– bad news, if you haven’t bought a ticket yet, they are currently SOLD OUT. So- from what I hear, it is THAT good.
MommyCon is on September 19, 2015 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm at the Sheraton Columbus Capitol Square (75 E State Street, Columbus 43215).
What is MommyCon? I have not personally attended, but I have been reading their website and talking to other moms that have attended and know that I just HAVE to go!!! Here is a description from the MommyCon website:
MommyCon is a boutique style convention dedicated to bringing modern parents and mothers-to-be together. Our focus is on natural and organic parenting methods and timeless tidbits as we journey through parenthood together. Our seminars and workshops include; babywearing, birth, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, car seat safety, natural health and medicine, baby gear, childproofing and so much more! We end our day with amazing giveaways and each attendee gets a gift bag from our sponsors.
