PBF 2011

Over the weekend, lordaerith and I attended PolyBigFun. Every year we get better at knowing what we need. This year, in addition to rope to tie the beds together, we got one of those eggshell mattress topper things from Walmart. I think it really helped make the prisoner beds (no really, they are made by inmates, they have tags saying so) more comfortable. We were in a different cabin this time than previous times, which had a lights out and was also super close to the bathroom. Very very good when one is 35 weeks (5 weeks from one's due date) pregnant.

The weekend itself was wonderful as always. I didn't attend as many workshops as I wanted to, partly because there weren't a lot of descriptions so it was sometimes hard to tell what the workshop was about and partly because I spent a lot of my time either engaged in conversation with others or resting. We seem to need a lot of rest these days. The workshops I did attend and the conversations I had were all really great.

There were two parts that really stick out in my mind. The first was acceptance from the poly parents who were there with their children. They let me ask them questions about birth and children and being poly with children. I really felt accepted by them. In fact, some of them even went out of their way to friend me on Facebook. I feel more comfortable about how next year will go when Aerith and I are in the family cabin with the baby.

The other part that was important was my 1am talk with the baby and the moon that I wrote about on my pregnancy blog. If you haven't been over there in a while and are interested, I have some new posts and new pictures on the pictures page.
