When trying to explain to my husband why I am so excited about MommyCon coming to Canada, I sounded like this: “So you know that conference you go to for work every year? Where it’s all the people in your industry and you get to network and put faces to names and get really drunk? Well, this is the equivalent for me, minus the getting drunk part!”
What is MommyCon, anyway? Well, it’s a a big old parenting convention that focuses on all of my favourite things: cloth diapering, babywearing, breastfeeding, baby gear and education. The mission of MommyCon is “to create a community of support, acceptance and non-judgement for women journeying through parenthood.” That’s basically my mission, minus the sarcasm!
I will be attending Canada’s first MommyCon, taking place in Vancouver on July 22, 2017 at Pinnacle Harbourfront 1133 W. Hastings Street. I hope my brother knows I’ll be staying overnight at his apartment in Van so I don’t have to re-live the commute of my university days from South Surrey to UBC!
