Mommy Mundo #TeamMom Grand Giveaway

Motherhood brings different moms together. We share the same ups and downs, we empathize with other moms, and we have this sense of belonging and community. It’s no wonder then that every mom has a #TeamMom behind her, borne out of the same interests, hobbies, advocacies, challenges, or goals. Every mom has a #TeamMom cheering her on.

This year, Mommy Mundo wants to recognize and appreciate #TeamMoms all over the country with a grand giveaway, the biggest Mommy Mundo has ever had!

#TeamMom: The Pilates Moms

As Expo Mom celebrates its tenth year, the longest running event of its kind pays tribute to #TeamMoms that have served as a lifeline for mothers all over the Philippines. Here is one such group, initially brought together by social media but later on bonded by their commitment to lead healthier, happier lives.

It all started in Twitter. For one reason or another, mommy bloggers Chessy Alejandro, Jackie Go, Michelle Lim, and Cai Sio started “bumping” into each other in Twitterverse. One would reply to another’s question, or another would agree with one’s tweet.

“It was all so random,” Jackie recalls. “I can’t remember the exact topics but I’m pretty sure that they were about motherhood.”

When they started meeting each other at blogger events, they found so much more to talk about. More importantly, they found out that they really, really liked each other.

However, it would take an Instagram post to cement the friendship of the four moms.

Contest Alert: Let’s Go, #TeamMom!

It’s just not your day. You congratulated yourself last night for having the foresight to prepare the children’s baon for the next day. But as fate would have it, your alarm clock didn’t ring, causing everyone in the family to be late. Your laptop wouldn’t open because of some registry issues and oh, little kitty forgot to take a dump outside, leaving a string of poo in the kitchen.

What do you do? Do you fall down on your knees and cry? Do you raise your arms and curse the heavens? No! You sit down, grab your phone, and message your mommy group. In a matter of seconds, you are instantly relieved. You are advised that most of them had experienced just such a snafu, and well, they eventually all came out of it fine. You are reminded that there are a hundred other things to be grateful for, and that you need only to take one step at a time. Plus, if and when you come across another horrendous day, you know that your #TeamMom is there to catch you!

Expomom Team Mom

It happens every time. Whenever moms are gathered together, they inevitably share their experiences of motherhood. Whether these episodes are happy or sad, frustrating or fulfilling, it’s always comforting to know that there’s a fellow mom who understands where you’re coming from and who would readily give you an encouraging smile, a helping hand, or a loving embrace.

Every mother has a #TeamMom behind her – a group of moms who have come together, either through shared interest or common history, to savor every exciting twist and turn of their mommyhood journey. #TeamMom encourages her to take advantage of her strengths and helps her work through her weaknesses. #TeamMom knows when she needs to let her hair down and laugh at everyday foibles. #TeamMom also knows when a moment calls for an all-out cry or a gentle pat in the back. Above all, #TeamMom cheers her through every moment and milestone, whether big or small.

Simply put, #TeamMom rocks!

Expo Mom: The Motherhood Journey in Cagayan de Oro

As the ultimate mommy event of the season takes a second trip to Mindanao, expect to be inspired by the different faces of mommyhood on October 15, 2016 at Centrio Mall, from 10AM to 9PM. Whether you’re an expectant mom, a new mom, or a mom of three or four, you’re going to find something to love at Expo Mom Cagayan de Oro.

 

Expo Mom: The Motherhood Journey features a fun and fulfilling all-day program. In the morning The Modern Nanays of Mindanao, a community of moms who promote breastfeeding, babywearing, and cloth diapering, lead the celebration of motherhood with a Mamba session—a Zumba class made especially for moms with slings! Dr. Raissa Paje Bayawa, founder of Happy Heart Kids Yoga, takes the stage next to enlighten moms about the benefits of prenatal yoga and to share some helpful moves as well.

Two sessions delve deep into the amazing journey that all moms share. The first one focuses on pregnancy and breastfeeding with Dr. Jess Sareno, neonatologist, and Nadine Casino, founder of Modern Nanays of Mindanao. The second touches on baby care with discussions on the right way to wear baby and age-appropriate toys to help with a child’s development.

The other exciting activities scheduled include a bento-making session specifically devoted to picky eaters by the pioneering Bento Mommas, who have actually been with us all over the country this year! You can sign up to participate at bit.ly/bentomommasCDO for Php900, inclusive of basic bento tool kit, bento box and food ingredients for the workshop plus freebies from sponsors, all of which you can take home afterward.

A makeup on the go demonstration for busy mothers by the Kikay Mommy follows in the afternoon, and a craft workshop with a homegrown moms and kids crafts group. In between, many prizes will be given away care of our generous exhibitors and sponsors Caltrate, and Belo Baby.

Topping the motherhood celebration is a fashion show devoted to babywearing, showing one and all that it is possible to look positively trendy with a baby in tow.

A year from its tenth anniversary, Expo Mom continues to be a source of information and inspiration among modern parents and a wellspring of modern products and services for the whole family.

Expo Mom 2016: The Motherhood Journey is co-presented by Caltrate Plus, and Belo Baby with Centrio Mall and Ayala Malls as its venue partner. Creative Juice Communications is its logistics partner. Entrance to Expo Mom is free.

The motherhood journey is different for every mom. Some find taking care of their children an easy task. They are perhaps blessed with the ability to adapt quickly to different types of situations.

But whether you’re a mama in Manila, a nanay in Cebu, or an iloy in Negros, you are one in loving your children unconditionally and wishing for them only the best. More so, you may find solace, support, and inspiration from the mompreneurs, partners, experts, and your fellow moms of Mommy Mundo’s Expo Mom community.
