Woke up real early, but my son saw me leaving and he got so upset. He thought I was going to work on a Saturday. Okay after sneaking out and walking to Aquanox a few blocks away, I arrived around 9:30 and wow, the place was filled with Mommy bloggers with their babies and kids.
I politely asked our Nuffnang coordinator if I could bring my son over, she said it was okay, so I rushed back home to a very upset little boy who wanted taho (soybean curd milk). I told him he could come with me to a Mommy party and Cow cheered up. Finally, after a busy week at work, we were finally going to do something together! and we left Daddycow at home haha :p
At the Bedtime Believer Awards, Cow got so excited! He loved the view from the top floor.
Oooh so many Mommy Bloggers! Good vibes to the old and new Mommy bloggers I met that day!
My son CowCow (well that's our lambing nickname for him at home). We had a nice Aquanox brunch- a hearty chicken sandwich with carrots, grilled chicken with rice and buttered veggies plus lotsa lemon iced tea. Nom nom nom!
Glad to see other Moms with their kiddies at the second floor
I love the lavender scent! Just like Mommy Vance, I wish there was a J&J cologne version of it
Our host Caren Bayhon-Yrastorza
I like her lovely ruched panel skirt!

So while I was eating my sandwich, they called out the Mommy winners. I almost choked on the carrots when they called my blog name out of nowhere and I wasn't sure about leaving my son alone on the top floor. Game naman sya and he didn't cry. I waved at him when I got downstairs, he was smiling. I received this huge glass trophy which was very heavy and a nice bonus- a Rustans gift cheque. WOW!
I met new mommy bloggers- Vance, Marilyn, Dinia and Janese. I wasn't able to spot any of the regulars (except for Mommy Pehpot) I guess most of them were seated at the ground floor. It was also nice to see Miss Anne Franco of Nuffnang again :)
After the event we went to Rustans supermarket at Greenbelt with my prize gift cheque- I decided to spend it on groceries. My son was so happy with all the treats he got! How timely. I'm thankful to J&J for the welcomed surprise!
