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!!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
