Yesterday. was. awesome! We had 20+ parents/bloggers and their amazing 33+ kids. I left feeling incredibly fortunate and grateful for having such a smart, funny, and warm community - right in our own backyard. Here are some highlights from the event -
If you haven't checked out Barefoot Books yet, they are a wonderful book publisher with beautiful stories and illustrations kids and families love. The founders, Nancy and Tessa, are truly amazing women who founded the company with a clear mission to bring stories from around the world to our kids' minds and imaginations.
So, we partnered with Barefoot Books to include Animal Boogie in the "Shake it" music box this month.
Man, I LOVE what I do every day! Where else could I give a "speech" while wearing baby Brandon? (He was thinking, "Mooommm! You're talking again?! I need a nap.") It wasn't a speech - it was a conversation. LOVED hearing what all the parents had to say. A truly amazing group... THIS was hilarious! I always say, one benefit of the BabbaBox is that you don't have buy 500 lbs of googly eyes when you only need 2. Plus, you don't have to stress about shopping for all the different materials. Well, Sharon of Umommy.com literally pulled a bag of googly eyes out of her purse and said, "LOOK! I had to run out just to get this bag of googly eyes. I just need 2." Well, at least she didn't have 498 left over. ha!
Sharon of Violacay.com was the winner of our raffle! Her son chose the winning ticket and they won a 3-month BabbaBox membership, gift certificate from Urbansitters (date night!!), and goodies from Barefoot Books. Congrats!! Her son did a few fist pumps and 'oh yea' bursts. Cordelia did a great job reading the Animal Boogie book. She made it super interactive and had the kids dance, groove, and sing.
What an amazing day! This is why we wake up in the morning. It's to genuinely connect, listen, and bond with parents and their kids - to create experiences and memories for the whole family. Thank YOU to those who attended and thank YOU for those who connect with us virtually everyday. BabbaLOVE to the max! (hug)
