About a month ago, I attended the Expo Mom 2016 by Mommy Mundo held at Glorietta Mall in Makati with my co-mommy blogger, Nina. It was my first time to attend an expo or event for Mommies and I am glad it was just in a mall nearby office, so we were able to come by after our office shift.
There were a lot of booths and games and freebies in the expo but what I personally enjoyed most is the Mindful Mom’s talk by registered Psychologies, Michelle Alignay. I had no idea what it will be like. I thought it was going to be about co-mommies giving tips on parenting and the how-tos of taking care of your child. But it was even more than just that!
Mindful Moms talk held at the Expo Mom was actually based from the Mindful Mom Re-Treat held last January 2016. Michelle invited two Moms, Mommy Mitch Llaban and RJ Dancel (known mommy blogger of MillenialPanda) who were also participants in the retreat to share their learnings and experiences as they become a Mindful Mom.
It was such a heartfelt discussion between the three of them. No kidding! Every word they said hit me straight to the heart. I had to control my tears from falling down from my eyes ’cause I don’t want to look weak as I am just in front of the stage watching and listening to them. It was even a timely discussion for me to hear, as I’ve recently written a blog post that expresses how tired and burnt-out I was, for the past couple of months.
That’s why I got excited when they announced that they will be having another series for the Mindful Moms Re-Treat! And that will be this coming May 28! Can you sense my excitement over there? 😀 I really am very excited, that on the day the event was announced and created in Mommy Mundo’s Facebook Page, I immediately signed-up to reserve a slot to myself even though the venue wasn’t still announced that time.

The Mindful Moms Re-Treat will be in Earth Kitchen, BGC. Good thing it wasn’t that far from the South. There will be 2 batches of attendees for the morning and the afternoon session. I reserved a slot for the AM session so I can spend quality time with my family in the afternoon. The cost of the session is 800 Php, though a bit costly, I know it will be an event worth spending money for as I will meet other co-Mommies and will learn to be a Mindful Mom as well. I know I need this!
Are you attending the Mindful Moms Re-Treat? If yes, what batch did you choose – the AM or PM session? If not and you want to check if there are still available slots for you, just go to their event in Facebook: Mindful Moms Re-Treat (Series 2). I hope to see you there! 🙂
