We had a whopping 31 Mums / Dads/ Bubs at our first Philly gTea on Friday. The poor cafe was somewhat overwhelmed but the staff were great - and we tipped well. The bloke behind me in the first pic below didn't know what hit him!
Our New York Week continues. After the fun we had yesterday with our fabulous gMums, today we met up with the incredible Christy Turlington and Erin Thornton of Every Mother Counts. Their mission is to improve maternal health globally and we think that rocks. We are trying to figure out ways to work together next year.
If you'd like to support maternal health, head over to this page: http://bit.ly/pIsGHI to vote for Robin Lim as one of CNN's 2011 Heroes. Robin and her team have helped thousands of low-income women have a healthy birthing experiences in Indonesia. Today is the last day to vote!
We held our first "Traveling gTea" today. We have done a gMum dinner from time to time over the years when we are on the road but the logistics got a bit hairy with all the baby's nap schedules etc.
So this time, while in NY City for the week, we thought we would just invite gDiapers Facebook friends, plant ourselves in our hotel cafe for 2 hours and meet who ever rocked up.
It was all about quality not quantity - we met two lovely Mums, Amy and Djassi and their beautiful bubs Alpheus and Mirahl. We had a terrific chat about everything and anything and I discvoered that we really can only meet two at a time! This Friday we will do it all again in Philly. Come join
Mirahl & Alpheus getting to know each other.
I promise Kim wasn't attempting to breast feed!
Mirahl enjoying the view from the window.
I'm not sure Alpheus was really paying attention here!

We promise that next time we will do this in Park Slopes and save you the commute!
