Great Finds at the Mommy Mundo Pre-Christmas Bazaar 2014

IMG_1889

Last November 8, my 2 kids and I went to Mommy Mundo’s Pre-Christmas bazaar at Glorietta. I wanted to see if there were any gift items I can get for my inaanaks. As soon as I registered and left our pre-loved clothes for the Electrolux and the Mommy Mundo #simpletoshare drive, I was given a pass so that I can claim my Mom 24/7 Planner starting on Nov 28 at Mommy Mundo office or the Nurture Nook shop.

The Mom 24/7 Planner is made especially for moms. There is ample space to record our schedules without mixing it with the schedule of the kids. There are also special planning pages for vacations, trips and parties! There are several discount coupons too. If you want to get a copy, you may do so by ordering online at www.mommymundo.com/shop or go to Mommy Mundo office, Nurture Nook shop and from your favorite bookstores.

My kids and I aren’t strangers to Mommy Mundo’s bazaars and we immediately looked around for fun finds! This year’s mom bazaar featured more than 60 exhibitors and vendors! Here are some of our great finds:

We didn’t get to see any of the on-stage talks and demos  but there were different activities lined up.

Here are my 3 reasons why I’m excited with this year’s Pre-Christmas bazaar:
1. I am trooping over to Glorietta because I want to start and finish my Christmas shopping before the Christmas rush starts! I know that I will find good deals and quality products throughout the 60 vendors joining the bazaar.

2. I am also hoping to help others by joining Electrolux’s #simpletoshare drive by bringing some pre-loved clothes, towels, blankets and linens to donate at the entrance of the event.

3. I am excited to get my Mom 24/7 Planner for 2015!

Things I Learned from Educating for Life, Homeschool Conference 2014

Last Saturday, I attended  Educating for Life, Homeschool Conference 2014 which was organized by Manila Workshops and The Learning Basket.

Here are 5 things I learned from the conference:

1. The conference was a great place to shop for your homeschooling needs. There were so many booths which included book publishers, mompreneurs, homeschool providers, insurance companies, museums, learning centers and  educational toys.

2. There are many parents who are interested in homeschooling their children. Though homeschooling families in the Philippines is roughly just .01% right now, it is  encouraging to see so many parents who are considering to take the “road less traveled”.

3. I learned that to become a confident homeschool mom, I need to rely on God’s grace and not on my own abilities nor on my own plans.

4. Filipino Arts, Heritage and Culture can be taught in a fun and creative way! Songs, games and unit studies can be used to achieve this goal.

5. Conquering homeschool fatigue is important and doable.

I am thankful that the Lord allowed me to attend this conference. I was refreshed, rejuvenated and recharged to continue our homeschooling journey.
