Oh wow! For the first time in my blogging, I felt scared to open the laptop. I got this feeling that my pending articles have already grown into a monster waiting for a chance to devour me. I am sorry everyone for being silent for almost a month since I got too many things to do. I got to learn how to prioritize. I always say that I am a mommy before a blogger.
As you all know, Noa already started with her summer class in preparation for this coming academic year. I have a post coming up on that. I am taking this chance to tell about the intimate play date event that Noa and I attended a few weeks ago organized by Huggies Philippines and Celebrity Mom Magazine at the Manila Polo Club.
The #PantsUp Play Date was well-attended by my fellow moms from the blogging community together with their adorable kids. I also got a chance to meet and earned some new mommy friends from the entertainment industry like the former Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) housemate Say Alonzo and actress Bianca Lapus. Of course, I’d love to be with my seasoned blogger friend Momsterteacher Dew.
It’s so fortunate of me to be sitting next to Say and Bianca and watch them nurse their little ones. It brings back my own breastfeeding moments with Noa not so long ago.
The Huggies #PantsUp Play Date was lead by none other than the Editor-in-Chief of Celebrity Mom Magazine, and one of my mommy pegs, Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan. It was hosted by the equally beautiful momma Bettina Carlos.
Mommy Maricel wanted the event to be relaxed and casual so she gave us all an equal chance to ask questions about the many parenting and child-rearing topics that concern us today. Some examples of the topics include potty-training, dealing with picky eaters, child discipline and even a few marital concerns.
While we are all ears to what Mommy Maricel tells us, the kids were happily playing at Gymboree. They were brought to us during refreshment to also enjoy the sumptuous food prepared for all of us.
Aside from the conversations and lessons learned, there were also games and a raffle! We brought some exciting gifts and prizes from Fisher Price, Ottebox and Puma.
Noa and I won an iPad Mini Defender Case from Otterbox in the raffle
We were so thankful for all the gifts that you sent us on our way. More than that, I truly appreciate Huggies Philippines and Celebrity Mom Magazine for this effort of bringing moms and kids together for an afternoon of learning and fun. Noa and I really had a great time!
Thank you Huggies x Celebrity Mom Magazine for organizing the #PantsUp Play Date! I enjoyed the afternoon with my fellow moms.
