Moms, bring along your partners-in-parenting to….

EXPO DAD! Our first-ever event for daddies. It’s been a different experience, really. Figuring out what fathers would want to see and experience at their very own expo. There was a lot of brainstorming, debating, deliberating and observing that went on as we planned for this special event. Definitely, we want to reflect most fathers’ interests such as sports and fitness.  Some daddies told us they have been wanting their own shopping event (because most bazaars really just cater to the ladies).  And still we wanted this to be a venue to celebrate fatherhood- that is, daddy’s version of babycare, parenting, bonding with kids, family experiences, etc. So we hope you will find time in your busy weekend schedules and check out our event for the men of the house: EXPO DAD! We are truly excited to see all of you there.

FINAL BANNER

Celeb watching at Expo Mom

June 24, 2009

One thing we look forward to in every Expo Mom is seeing old friends, meeting new moms and dads, and in this last Expo particularly, did some “star gazing” as well.

And the winners are….

May 7, 2009

We loved reading all the entries about how our fellow mommies spend their days, but still, we have to choose 5 entries to win special prizes from Expo Mom Sponsors!  And the winners are…

  • Bettina del Rosario, a differently-abled, single mom working hard for her son;
  • Bunny, a working mom balancing night shifts in her call center job with her life as an active mother;
  • Ria, a stay at home mom “living life to the fullest”;
  • Sexymom, a mom in her 50s raising 7 kids, striving for balance;
  • Elle Tan,  a nursing mom dealing with challenges most of us face or have faced, whose poem about her day caught our attention;

CONGRATULATIONS, Mommies!  We will see you at Expo Mom when you claim your prizes! (Kindly text us at 09189300313 so we know how to get in touch with you:-) )

We thank everyone who joined our contest for taking the time to write. From their words, we not only had a sneak peek into their lives, but we also shared and connected with them because their stories resonate with our own personal experiences.  Our days can be hectic, busy, and crazy, yet, the fulfillment and joy we get from being a mom is truly unmatched. And this is exactly what are celebrating this weekend at EXPO MOM! It truly is amazing to be a mother!  

Bettina, Bunny, Ria and Sexymom’s entries can be found on this page.  We would like to end this entry with Elle Tan’s inspired poem:

What’s a day in my life like?

delivered a newborn. our first and a girl.

babies are supposed to be bundles of joy,

but here i am, gave up my job and stuck at home.

my day is filled with doing nothing but

breastfeeding, rocking, and changing diapers.

breast milk all over the place,

arms feel like falling off and wrists succumbing to tendinitis.

i get pee’d in the face and poop on the crib.

over and over and over again.

but when my precious one looks at me and smiles……

babies *ARE* a bundle of joy!
