My Unique Grand Baby Fair Year 8 Experience

January 31, 2018

Ever since I became a mom in 2015, one of the events I made sure not to miss is Baby Company’s Grand Baby Fair. 

In the Grand Baby Fair, moms and dads are exposed to a lot of amazing brands in just one roof. All these brands sell their products at heavily discounted prices and may even offer buy 1 get 1 deals. It is also the only event that gives overflowing freebies that are really nice and useful. 

With my ever-supportive husband Geoff. :)
This year’s  #GrandBabyFairYear8 is more special and memorable to me because of 3 reasons. 

I gave a talk on-stage. 
I did not just attend it to shop for my toddler and baby on the way but I was able to do something that I really love - sharing with my fellow moms and this time on-stage. 

Upon receiving the invitation to be a guest speaker in this year’s most-awaited Grand Baby Fair 2018, I cannot help but get excited and pumped to talk to my fellow moms on a bigger scale. I was so thankful to God for giving me an opportunity to share, inspire and connect with my fellow moms. I even prayed hard for the topic I wanted to discuss. I then decided to talk about  “Debunking Pregnancy and Parenting Myths.” It was a very millennial thing to do given the information we are exposed to. But I felt that God wants me to take it to the next level by sticking to the truth, the Truth with a capital “T” who is God Himself so I made sure that myths and the beliefs will be corrected and busted. 

For my talk, I discussed the following: 
1. What myths are and where or from whom we hear it?
2. Reasons why myths should be debunked
3. 12 pregnancy and parenting myths
4. How to manage when faced with someone who strongly believes in myths

Right before I went on-stage, I attended Sunday Mass in the very pretty chapel of SM Megamall. I offered the talk I will give and everything that will happen for His glory. 

Everything went so fast: the seemingly long wait at the backstage which is really just a few minutes, my 15 minutes talk, and the photo opportunity. But what I cannot forget are the faces of those listening to me. They were actually nodding and those walking and shopping stopped to listen.  I just love how they got interested and engaged in the topic. I was also touched by those who messaged me saying that they learned a lot and it was a really informative talk. I just love the thought that I was able to empower my fellow moms through education. 

After the talk, my husband and I finally had time to shop! 

I shopped like an excited first-time mom!
I bought stuff like a first-time mom would do for my upcoming baby since in a month’s time, we will welcome another baby girl. The good deals were just so irresistible so I was able to buy items for my toddler and myself too.

As I went home with super tired feet and legs, I just had to thank God for all the wonderful blessings and opportunities that have come my way now that I am a mom. May I always do it for His glory and may I always continue to help more and more moms through the years. Now, I look forward with joy and anticipation the next #GrandBabyFair in 2019!
