DH and I grew up in the SCA... but we haven't attended Pennsic since dd1 arrived 5 years ago. Why it seems less intimidating to attend with three littles than it did to attend with one, I'm not sure. Well, not totally true... dd1 would have been 4mo and I'd had a c/s so Pennsic sounded like "no fun". Then dd2 would have been 2mo and I had a 4th degree tear so again "no fun". But THIS TIME a 5yo, a 3yo, and a 9mo sounds do-able.
But I have almost no garb for the kiddos, NO garb at all that still fits me and is breastfeeding friendly, and while we've done 2-3 day camping trips we haven't tried a week long trip so I'm not entirely certain how to plan.
We don't have a household at the moment (well, not for Pennsic) so we're going to be on our own, probably in the 'ghetti unless there is a better family spot... all my Pennsic knowledge is 5 years out of date!
Is anyone else going to Pennsic 39? Suggestions from BTDT mamas?
eta- my persona is viking incursion era irish so I don't have much garb in the "chemise"/"ren faire" department (I always thought those tops looked very breastfeeding friendly
). And given how long it took me to do the embroidery on my existing garb the thought of cutting slits in it makes me cry! Even if it still fit, which, ummmm.... 5 years and 3 babies later? I laugh.
