Event: Kids Imagine their Potential via Barbie You Can Be Anything Roadshow for Halloween

Hello Sweeties!

I was really curious about the Barbie You Can Be Anything Roadshow event at Lucky China Town last October 29th, mainly because I never did take my kids to these Halloween trick or treating events, Been to busy with my day job to find the opportunity. Now that the kids are older (both are teenagers), I regret that I did not make an effort to dress them up and make memories when they were kids.  I admire the great Moms and Dads who actively participate.  Its an amazing  time to be children in this era.

Barbie You Can Be Anything had a series of events that embraces the kids dreams. It inspires them to shine and be themselves by dressing up into their favorite characters, their dream jobs, people they admire, it is never to early to aspire and to start living their dreams.

Buy Barbie products at discounted prices!

I got to the venue early and check out some of the booths, they have free face painting, nail art, coloring area and they also sell Barbie merchandize at discounted prices.

There was a large crowd at the Barbie You Can be Anything at Lucky China Town everyone was excited for the show to begin

They had a magic show that really wowed the kids, a raffle that gave away barbie bags a game with the kids and a short musical play.

The Top 5 are all winners with the judges! left to right: Most Whimsical Female Award, Most Whimsical Male, Grand Prize Winner, 2nd Prize Winner and 3rd Prize winner

The kids did a really good job walking down the runway in their chosen outfits.  These are the winners of the contest but looking at the variety of kids and costumes I just had to post some of my favorites.

Dragon Mommy Recommends: MOMMY LOVES YOU JUST THE SAME

 Hello Sweeties!Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag

I grew up the middle child, when my Mom was pregnant with my youngest brother, I never actually knew about it until he was saw him for the first time. It was the 70s so Pinoy parents kept their kids in the dark about reproduction. We were never asked if we wanted another addition to the family.

So there I was the baby, the bunso, the bam everything changed. I became a middle child.

I really felt insecure during that time because my Mom was always so tired and never had any time for me. Fast forward to the present, I have a baby girl of my own and expecting another child.  I decided that I would have my daughter Raffy know right off that she was going to be a big sister, I dunno if understood it at the time since she was barely 3 years old at the time.

This is one reason why I am so happy that bestselling Author and Inspirational Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag will launch her first children’s book Mommy Loves You Just the Same on May 19, 2016.
