While away attending that event in Chicago that I've already told you a lot about, I was invited to attend Sweet Suite 2013, "The Biggest Night of Play!" party. Local Boston Parent Blogger Charlene of Charlene Chronicles was one of the co-hosts of the event, so I figured this would be a good way to test out some of my thinking on embracing sponsored content here at Busy Since Birth. There will be more to come on that in a future post, but first, it was time to play.
The event was in a lovely space, and brought together a huge number of toy companies promoting their latest items to the blogging public while offering some desserts and beverages. Kimberly and I went through the two-story space together, though I have to admit I hung back more while watching Kimberly make a lot of connections. In some ways, my kids have aged out of a lot of toys already, and so there were fewer companies I was interested in getting to know.
