Where is your happy place?
I have come to know my boys love to stay at Timezone for hours. They could empty their power cards in an hour and would request for a reload. Nothing’s changed now that they consider themselves like grown ups. The more that they love to play, and would only stop when again, their cards got empty.
If my boys have found their happy place, I, too, got the chance to discover my own happy place. It is a place I would love to look around, shop if I have the resources, and chat with the owner or staff. I could also let my little man play at the cute activity area as I again, look and shop around. That place is where most moms like me converge and be in the know of the trendiest mommy and baby products. It is called 9 Months and Beyond.
Home is where the mom is
Strategically located along Malingap Street in Diliman, Quezon City, this charming boutique is a haven for parents and kids. A carefully curated collection of mommy, baby, and children essentials and wants are aplenty. These products and brands are offered by moms for fellow moms. Thus, very apt is 9 Months and Beyond’s tagline Home is Where the Mom is.
This mom and baby concept store showcases a wide array of baby products that surely most moms would love and appreciate. Baby and children clothing and accessories in the cutest and most creative prints are on display. Anything a child needs from toiletries to feeding essentials, toys, baby carriers and its accessories (like drool pads) and whatnots are readily available. For the moms, they have nursing pillows and dresses, beauty products and even fashion accessories. The shop even carries natural and non-toxic home and baby cleaning essentials from bath soaps to detergents, linen sprays, and baby utensil cleansers. Seriously, they almost got it all! They carry over 30 of the biggest mom and baby brands uniquely offered by local sellers.
And if you just cannot get enough of 9 Months and Beyond, they are very much present on Facebook and Instagram. But then again, nothing beats the happiness of escaping the stress and constraints of everyday life by being physically present at your happy place. It simply makes you feel completely at ease.
Finding my happy place
Having an emotional connection with a place is something inspiring. Aside from contributing to your happiness, it gives you deep contentment and meaning. Because as you glide through the shelves, you are always reminded that you are a mom – the pure essence of your existence. Staying at 9 Months and Beyond makes me feel at home. Because again, home is where the mom is.
