Judging from the non-stop chatter, there seemed to be an instant connection among the twelve mommies. Thanks to a common career- motherhood – and a common passion – blogging (or the two can be interchanged). Everyone knew about each one’s kids, hobbies, jobs, or life’s latest events.
Mommy bloggers with cameras and kids in tow. That’s Connie’s Sam (seated and shooting at me), who seemed to have a high affinity for me as her model.. Bad choice, Sam! Unless you plan to specialize in comedic photography… Behind her is Salen’s daughter N photographing some more moms.
Feng‘s Nico so delighted with the morphing feature of Dine’s SexyMac. (BTW, Sexy Mom is really sexy! And Dine is pronounced with a short i as in “Din”.)
Time was too short. Soon it was time to go.But not before Rach and I could shop for sausages at the Deli! (I believe we will make good shopping buddies 😀 ).
I am so happy to be part of PMN. Though our backgrounds are diverse, motherhood has brought us together. I hope this is the start of more mommy lunches and beautiful friendships as well.
On another note…
After the mommy lunch, I picked up my kids from the house and off we zoomed to a birthday party. It was wonderful, except that it was rained out. Too bad, because the giant slide would have been a big hit for the kids (and big kids adults!). Anyway, after dinner I was chatting with another mom. She was surprised to find out that I (and Shiraz, my younger sister) decided to stop working and chose to be a SAHM/WAHM. I was more surprised at her condescending comment:
“Bakit?? Sayang naman ang mga pinag-aralan natin kung magkukulong lang tayo sa bahay.” (or something to that effect, but just as irritating.)
My brow went up. I don’t know about her. But I am definitely using my education and brains raising my children.
