If there's such a thing called as an online sorority group, that's how I would call my membership in Mommy Bloggers Philippines (MBP). We are a group of Filipina mom bloggers who aim to share our stories to the world and inspire others. We are more than just a group of bloggers, we are friends, supporters, and sisters for each other.
Last October 18, the long awaited get-together of the mommy bloggers happened in Fun Ranch Ortigas as we celebrated the Halloween together with our families. With more than 100 participants, the Big Red Room was jam-packed with bloggers, kids, families, and sponsors. It was a great day to put all these mommies under one roof. Since most of us have only spoken to each other online, we were delighted to say our hellos and introduced ourselves to each other. With kids in tow, we had very limited chances to converse with all the moms in attendance.
The kids had a costume contest and were grouped into categories. My son wore a car racer costume and was listed under the "others" category. He didn't want to wear his helmet that day and was agitated when he had to stay on queue and wait for his turn to be seen by the judges. Patience to stay still is a gold mine trait for a toddler.
We really had a great time and are looking forward to more events like this to bond with my online sisters and our kids.
Let me share with you our event. Photos were provided by Photomark Lightworks.
Moms were given loot bags while the kids were delighted with their treats.
|Some of the treats are missing in this photo because my son decided to eat them on our way home.|
Thank you to all our sponsors!
