International Babywearing Week in the #RGV


Check out the BWI website for events in your area:
http://www.babywearinginternational.org/events/international-babywearing-week/

Who's excited for IBW?! It starts on Sunday and just wanted to share these event ideas with ya'll and if you are local, feel free to join our Cloth Diaper and Babywearing group on Facebook for exciting events, which include a babywearing walking group that we have twice a month!

IBW 2014 Event Ideas

Use the activity listed for everyday, use just one or two, or come up with your own ideas. The point is to get out there and celebrate.

Shout it Out Sunday

Shout it all the way to the roof-tops (or Twitter, Instagram or Facebook!): we love babywearing! What role has the internet and social media played in your babywearing experience? What can you do today to be heard (and seen) in your community? Organize a flash mob. Arrange a volunteer opportunity. Take to the streets (or malls, or zoos!) and show other caregivers what babywearing is all about. Be sure to shout it out on social media! ‪#‎IntlBabywearingWeek‬

Momentum Monday
Use today to gain some momentum for the week: How does babywearing help you get your week started? What fun ideas can you come up with to get your group excited for the week? How about an original music video? Scavenger hunt? Babywearing bingo?

Teach me Tuesday
Take time to learn a new technique or carry. Have someone in your life with whom you’ve wanted to share babywearing? Now is the time; teach them one-on-one or host a “babywearing 101” class.

Work-out Wednesday
Plan a 1 mile walk. Host a babywearing yoga or work-out class. Whatever you choose, get moving and have fun!

Throwback Thursday
Share pictures of your first time wearing, a favorite babywearing memory, or the people who introduced you or who you have introduced to babywearing. ‪#‎TBW‬ #IntlBabywearingWeek

Flexible Friday
What adventures have you had that might not be possible without babywearing? Hiked a mountain? Walked the beach? Played with older kids while caring for a newborn? Simply survived the grocery store with multiple kids? Share pictures and your experiences.

Share your City Saturday
What defines your town, city, region or area? Meet as a group at your city’s earmark to show the rest of the babywearing world the adventures you can share in your community.

To celebrate (and early birthday present for me) IBW I nabbed this beauty at 5MinuteRecess, 5mr.com! I received it today, so I decided to share :)





She's in the washer now!!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
