I do not know how to drive a car. So when I told my mom I will go to the Baby Company Grand Baby Fair, she readily offered a ride.
We came on a Saturday and as expected, there were a lot of moms and dads shopping for their little ones. I can compare the Grand Baby Fair scenario to our subdivision’s traffic situation every Monday. There are cars heading to the north and in one lane are vehicles making their way to the south.
At the Grand Baby Fair, almost all were busy pushing carts, making a few stops on stalls that interest them. Though jam-packed, everybody was just too courteous to let a pregnant mom go ahead or let a baby in a stroller pass first. After all, they marched to SM Megatrade Halls 1, 2 and 3 with almost the same goal — to provide their own little cutie pies their needs and wants.
We came to the fair determined to stick to my list. I was able to buy our Y his first dining set from Little Tikes. After making a few rounds and checking on stalls for a high chair, we went back to Graco and bought what we believe suits the needs of our little munchkin. Then I saw some cute dining set — latest offering of Graco and not yet available in baby company stores nationwide — and bought two soft-tip weaning spoons and a weaning bowl.
We were on our way to the cashier when we passed by Chicco and I just can’t resist to put down its sippy cup. I told myself (or more on convinced myself) our Y needs at least two sippy cups, one for water or juice and another one for my expressed milk.
We were done with our shopping and I invited the queen mother (how I secretly call my mom) to listen to the talk of one doctor at the trade hall’s stage. The talk was about the importance of breastfeeding which I find really interesting and a big help for first time breastfeeding moms like me. I plan to write in full detail the lessons learned from this talk on a separate post.
And so we were about to face the long line when we chance upon Lille baby booth. And I just fell in love with the Complete All Seasons Tokidoki “iconic” limited edition baby carrier. I asked the beautiful Lille baby staff if I could fit one and she not only explained to me each feature but let me try it with my son. She cannot, however, open the new Tokidoki package, as according to her, was a company policy.
I all the more fell in love with the tokidoki iconic baby carrier when I wore my baby after the purchase. Its delightfully bright and fun color complements my baby’s peaches-and-cream complexion. I am one babywearing mom and with my new Lille Baby Tokidoki baby carrier, my little munchkin and I can go places with great ease.
Have I told you I do not know how to drive? I am just about to learn how to this February so I could bring my boys to school myself, and hopefully save on school service expenses. So why am I saying this? Because I can say that I just had an intense driving lesson at the Baby Company Grand Baby Fair last Saturday.
Pushing my cart inside the crowded trade hall taught me to check around and keep an open space beside me so I could swerve when there’s an opening. This way, I could avoid bumping other’s cart or the person in front of me. Aside from paying great attention to my surroundings, the situation at the baby fair also reminded me to be Courteous, Patient, and Respectful (CPR) of others.
CPR – Courteous, Patient, and Respectful
Motorists tend to be annoyed when others deny them space on the road. Same with the grand baby fair scenario, if you practice tailgating, surely the person in front of you will be irritated because you are just too close. Give some space and you will gain others’ respect.
It may indeed take us long to get to the cashier because of the super long line but still, we will get in there peacefully if we just practice patience — same way on how patient we can be when stuck in a terrible traffic.
And so, if you haven’t been to the Baby Company’s Grand Baby Fair 6, you may opt to visit today. There are over 200 brands, mostly new and haven’t been launched in the market yet, and discounts are up to 70% off. Entrance is FREE! and special privilege for MOM CARD holders awaits. They get to take home a free swag bag for every P3,500.00 purchase. And the swag bag is just full of baby product samples!
And so again, if you plan to drop by the Baby Company’s Grand Baby Fair at the Megatrade Halls 1, 2, and 3 at SM Megamall, it wouldn’t hurt if you practice a little CPR while inside the huge trade hall.
