Parent & Child Show Report

What a spectacular weekend we had at the Parent & Child Show.  So much fun to meet everyone and also to have a chance to catch up with our suppliers and really lovely to get to meet the people behind our fellow online sites - there's a definite sisterhood because we all know the challenges we face as mums and as business women!  So a big shout out to Kate from Naked Baby, Bex from Daisy Baby, Louise from Scamps, Sarah and Katrina from Things for Baby - how late were you up on the Sunday night answering emails?   ;)

What we'll remember:
  •  Meeting Tracey from Cake Lingerie.  Tracey is the creator of the brand, such a sweetie, and boy does she know her boobs (how to fit them into the right size bra I mean!).  There were long queues at times to get into the changing room and get professionally fitted by the expert and every woman who tried on Cake, bought it.
  • Hearing about a cockroach scuttling over to check out our stand close-up when Heidi and I were both on a walk-around. 
The most memorable part of the show had to be the Belly Beyond Cake Lingerie Real Mums Fashion Show on the Main Stage on Saturday.  A huge thank you to our model mums, AJ, Jasmene, Alisha, Mandy and Sarah, who totally blew the crowd away with their gorgeous stage presence and confidence.  Takes courage to be on stage in your underwear, no matter how beautiful it may be, and to do so after having a baby and while pregnant is simply amazing - you absolutely rock!!

So without further ado, go and check out the Belly Beyond Cake Lingerie Real Mums at the Auckland Parent and Child Show photos on our Facebook page.

And for my lovely mother who won't join the rest of the world and join Facebook, here are the shots of her favourite granddaughter on stage demonstrating with aplomb, the SKIP*HOP Zoo Back Pack
