What a night!
Last night was a first. Last night, all across the DC metro area (and a little beyond), DV Meto Mom bloggers donned Baby Brewing t-shirts (thanks, Kristen!), put on a little makeup, and hi-tailed it down to meet each other at a local, um, drinking establishment.
We had canapes and cocktails, beers, and dessert. We talked about living in D.C., writing perfect and not-so-perfect posts, and how odd it was to just be away from the kids for a night. We talked about tweeting and meeting in Second Life. We talked about day jobs and night jobs and dirty jobs and, well, potty training, which has to rank right up there with the dirtiest of jobs. I mean, Mamma loves her little monkeys, Mom does, but sometimes we're still Stimeyed by the job description.
We cooked up some good ideas for saving the world … or at least helping moms with little ones stay or return to work when they’re ready. We didn’t read, but we did snag swag from the lovely Devra, who shared copies of her book on Mommy Guilt, and Graco, who sponsored the evening’s refreshments and slippers to take home and relax in. We had a fabulous time with some fun-loving friends, checked out a new Graco product, and marveled when they sent a pregnant blogger home with the amazing new Sweetpeace soothing center (it’s like a bouncer on steroids, people!).
We were not so well behaved. Well, okay, we were actually very well behaved, but maybe that’s because we had a Gunfighter there with us. We chronicled the night with mental notes, pictures galore, and promises to meet up again before BlogHer.
What a great night. Many thanks to PunditMom for organizing the party! We had a blast!
