Re: OT MommyCon

  • I just looked at the one in San Francisco — it's two weeks after my due date. Soooo, I'm betting I can't go, but man I want to!

  • A few of the ladies in my BWI group went to the one in Oregon last year. I really wanted to go to it this year, but the closest one to us will be in Colorado and it's supposed to be some weird hippie camping thing. I'll pass.

  • We were supposed to go to the Chicago one last year but L ended up in the hospital with what they thought was pneumonia. So we missed it. And now were probably too far.
    :(
    Keep an eye out, they had some play date thing where everyone got a free carrier. But tickets went fast. I'm pretty sure it's included w your mommy con ticket.

    I am sorry you missed it! :(

    I will keep an eye out, thank you!

    Yeeeeeeah I don't know if I would want to go then, camping with a baby doesn't really sound like a fun time to me. :/

    FWIW the Austin one isn't a camping thing so they aren't all the same.
    Not all of them are camping. Just the one in Colorado. It's cool thing though. Last year the moms came back with a ton of free stuff, including diapers and baby carriers.

  • I really wanted to go last year to try carriers, but the Philly one was less than a month after my due date and I didn't want to buy tickets and then not be able to go. I hope that I can go this year.

    She might see you...but you won't see her! ;)

    Bahahaha.

    Although seriously speaking of this... Does anyone else ever get creeped out posting on here? As in, I feel like I 'know' all you regs, and it's weird to think that there are people who lurk our site but never post who feel like they 'know' me, and I have no idea who they are at all. It gives me the shivers.

  • @bookitup, I agree that the majority of people who are lurkers are not lurking in a creepy way.  I just find it weird that I'm basically broadcasting my personality out on the interwebs for anyone who wants to see it and I have no idea who those people are, haha. 

     ::calls from the mountaintop:: "Hello...lo...lo    Lurkers...urkers...urkers!"

     And don't be afraid to post on Parenting!  They are super welcoming there!  I like to mix it up there myself on occasion.

    I think it's creepy if you assume the worst, but I think most people are just shy or self-conscious and don't know what to post to contribute. I think a lot of people just like "listening" and aren't trying to be all stalker-y. At least that's my intention when I read on other boards. I love the Parenting board but I am way too self-conscious to post there because there are so many "big" personalities I'm afraid I'll get shot down. It might not seem like it if you're one of them, but CD has some intimidating personalities, too.
    And who are these intimidating personalities you speak of?  I think you must mean hilarious ;)

    @stoneycakes, I see what you're saying about broadcasting your personality. It only freaks me out when I think of people I know IRL reading it...like if I post about my ILs and one of them is like secretly reading it, lol. Strangers for some reason don't creep me out as much.

    Yes, I did mean hilarious, obviously! :P And maybe I will have to try posting on Parenting. I'll drink a glass of wine or two first...and figure out how the eff to post a gif. 
    I'm totally paging you into the next drinking thread I participate in!

  • I can understand why someone wouldn't post on Parenting. That place can be very intimidating. I barely post there anymore. Here though is much different, there's some snark, but this group is a lot more close knit? Essentially I love you guys.

    Once they announce the when/where….I am going to go.  In all seriousness, my knees might buckle if we really got to see each other.  I might look like this  :-O or this  ^:)^

    OMG, are you guys actually going to reveal your identities to each other?  I want in.  But Philly is a loooooong drive for me.  Not as far as Chicago, though. Almost doable.
