My Musings,

Our Last Summer Hurrah

Together with the AMO mommies, we organized a little swimming party at the Tivoli Garden Residences in Mandaluyong City yesterday. It was well attended by the AMO mommies (even daddies) and babies who are located here in Metro Manila.

The DIY Invite πŸ™‚

I really thank God for the good weather He has blessed us with yesterday. I have to admit that being one of the organizers of this gathering, I felt a little nervous because when I woke up yesterday morning, the weather looked quite gloomy.

However, the show must go on so I said a little prayer. I went to the venue early on so I could still have a small chitchat with Mommy Mary Pauline Danga-Obias. She’s the (ever-kindest) unit owner and the other host of our little party. (By the way, shameless plugging, she’s the General Manager of the Mary Pauline Salon empire! If you’re interested to franchise a salon business, she’s very accommodating, just let us know.)

Majority of us came in on time. It was very pleasant to see each others’ smile. It was also very heartwarming to see the supportive daddies. More so, it was a great blessing to see all the babies’ priceless giggles as they enjoy swimming.

Here are some of the photos of our splash! πŸ™‚

Noa riding her little green boat

This is my daughter Noa. She’s 10 months and it was her first swimming experience in a pool! πŸ™‚ To be honest, for days, I was a bit worried that she wouldn’t like the pool. Noa took a probiotic drink before we came to the venue just to be sure in case she swallows some pool water.

Since we ran short of time, we weren’t able to play some parlor games. πŸ™ I’ve consulted all the mommy donors of these prizes if we could just do a LIVE raffle of these loots anytime this week to all those who attended. These are all the donated prizes I have collected last Saturday. Just give me time to visit the Numa Baby store for my pledge! πŸ™‚

Just finished eating *burp*

Special thanks to Mommies Sherrybe Raymundo, Edel Kutukova, & Aileen Cabrera for donating these stuff for the EB. God bless your kind hearts! πŸ™‚

Thanks again to all the AMO families for supporting the EB! I’m really blessed to have you all! ‘Til our next gathering! God bless us all! πŸ™‚
