I Took a Baby to a (Blog) Conference

By emily |

Two weeks ago today, Paul and I were attending the blog conference, Blissdom, at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.

So many people I bumped into throughout the weekend commented on how “brave” I was to take a needy infant to a conference. Honestly, my experience was just the opposite.

While it was true we were missing many of the everyday conveniences of home, (like the baby bath, boppy pillow, and bouncy seat), it was a refreshing to be able to spend a weekend bonding with my 4th born baby.

A few things Paul learned and got to experience:

Baby Boredom.

Paul fell asleep during one of the most compelling sessions I attended.

I went to the conference with a carefully considered and open agenda. My job first and foremost was to attend to Paul, and spend a few relaxing days away from the craziness of home.

I loved the conference! Even with all the time spent caring for Paul, I still managed to learned a ton about social media, and found a few moments to connect with friends.
