A couple of months after my daughter was born in 2008, I got hooked on a lot of internet stuff. Mainly because I was a SAHM and had a lot of spare time in between feedings but specifically because of monthly online contests.
It was around December 2008 when I joined Baby Central (BC), which was then also a newly launched site. They started monthly themed contests where the child with the most number of votes would win. Prizes would range from free Photo shoots to gift packs and gift certificates. The top 10 highest children also won consolation prizes/gift packs.
It was on this site that I met a lot of moms who had similar interests (contests). I am glad to have met the first few active moms and dad (yep, I can only recall one active Daddy) who were more in it just for the fun of it.
On February 15th of 2009, we had our mini EB (eyeball) at Max's in Shangri-la Mall. We were so excited since that was the first time we'd see each other face to face. Most of us were chatting online for more than 10 hours a day , 7 days a week and we'd only know each other by handle/username or those little thumbnail pictures/avatars. When we all met, we knew, this was the beginning of the BC Moms and Dads friendship.
Okay, just for now humor me. These were the pictures taken then. If there was a then, for sure there'd be a now, right? That is coming up tomorrow. We had another EB and wouldn't it be exciting to see how some of these children have grown?? But for now, let's reminisce...
L-R: Chrisel and Aria (14 months), Glen and Jazz (9 months), Chi and Sasha (11 months), Me and my little Missy (5 months), Wheng and Yosha (14 months), Gie and Simon (10 months), Mitch and Masheng (23 months), and Nicquee and Ayex (25 months)
Please watch out for tomorrow's post :) Have a great weekend!
