Live and Learn - Blog Event Coming Soon...

Introducing my very first blog event - ever!

I am very excited for this. I have a few sponsors lined up and a whole six says of recommnedations and advice for new and expectant parents.

A little background...

We're at the stage in life where it seems many of our friends and family members are expanding their families. Lately we've received lots of solicitations for advice on everything from diapers and baby gear to childbirth and breastfeeding. And while we certainly do not claim to be experts nor assume our advice should be used in place of that of medical practitoners acting in an official capacity, we thought this would allow us to share some of our acquired wisdom in one forum so we can refer to when solicited for parental wisdom.

Additionally, I also want to ask you, my readers, to chime in during this event and also share your acquired wisdoms. This way, those reading the postings can gain knowledge not only from the T Rex Family perspective but also from other households around this world. With that being said, please share. And as added enticement, I will be having giveaways during the event. Entries will be based on constructive comments posted.

Here are the sponsors for the event:

CChapmans Gifts Etsy Shop - gift certificate to spend how you would like. This is my cousin's shop and she makes everything. Even her 100% vegan soap is completely homemade. And it's WONDERFUL!

ChubbieBums Heirlooms Etsy Shop - gift certificate to spend how you would like. I love this shop. I initially found her when I purchased some of her fitted diapers off eBay. Since then I've made a couple more purchases and am never disappointed. And in case you are not into cloth diapers, she has other homemade items in the form of children's clothing.

T Rex Mom Etsy Shop - Yes, this is my shop. I, too, will be offering an item from my shop. You can choose from a pair of toddler pants (girl or boy print - size 3 months to 4T available) or a tutu (up to size 4 T). And if you don't have a young person in your life you want me to make something for, then we will figure something else out. If you follow this blog, you know I do LOTS of different projects.

Here are the planned posting subjects:

I am really excited and really hope I can count of you to support me on this. Because, depending upon how this goes is really going to help me determine if I ever host one of these events again. Plus, I think it's just going to be really fun.

(And by the way, thank you JKMommy at A Year With Mom and Dad - she made my super cool button for this event.)
