MommyCon Chicago 2017-Giveaway!

MommyCon.  One of my favorite events of the year.  This year I'll be traveling extra far to get to Chicago but with family living a couple hours away it isn't too bad and I love it so much!  Pete is really excited about it too, not that he is going, but because "you're going to learn all about how to be a better mommy".  Thanks kiddo, though really I think he is mostly excited to spend time bacheloring it up with daddy for a couple weeks, since they already have tons of plans of things to do while the girls are away.  But he does hit at the heart of what MommyCon does for me, it helps be learn how to be a better parent for my kids. I've learned more about cloth diapering, breastfeeding, caring for myself, creating lasting bonds and not beating myself up with mom guilt.  The classes, vendors and just the other parents I spend the weekend with all help me recharge my batteries ready to take on the next parenting challenges.  It is also really fun to run away for a weekend and geek out on lots of natural parenting goodies as well!  The other moms (and dads) are a great group, we share common interests and concerns and are always willing to help out if you need it.

This year I'm looking forward to the How to Teach Boys vs Girls about Money, The Mob Party, Potty training, redefining motherhood and finishing it up with What happened to my pelvic floor.  The classes are great this year and I love that they aren't all overlapping.  I'm just going for Saturday, because it is my dad's birthday weekend and since I'm in town I want to be there to celebrate.


Now for the good part! A giveaway!  I'm giving away two (2) 2-day passes to MommyCon Chicago+WEAR.  You'll have a chance to win one of the two passes I'm giving away!  Good Luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!

Those classes sound really interesting! I would like to go to the money one because I feel like it's a hard and abstract concept to teach kids these days since mostly we all use cards and PayPal.

I've never been but am really wanting to attend. I didn't cloth woth my first and that was 9 year ago so I'm really looking forward to learning everything all over again plus more. Thanks for the offer.

I have wanted to go to Mommy can for 2 years. It would be amazing! I would be interested in toddler wearing or potty training classes. My 17mo doesn't really like to be worn much. He wants to go everywhere on his own terms. Seeing if we could get that back would be awesome.
And I really have no idea where to start with potty training.

This is so exciting! To get the opportunity to go to mommycon would be fantastic! I have that weekend off, but to have the extra moneybto travel plus pay for a ticket was something I couldn't do together. I would really be interested in getting to sit in on the potty training session. I am a scared cat when it comes to my son! Plus I would be able to go to the Grovia Booth all by myself to get that opportunity alone would be amazing!!! Thank you for providing this opportunity!

I am going to mommycon with my awesome friend Casey!! I am so excited cause I have never gone before. I am interested in a lot of the classes. But the most interesting one would be the potty training class. My daughter is right at that age, but we haven't taken the full plunge yet.
