Relive the Mothers Day Celebration!

Bunch of most enthusiastic moms in town at 'Mothers Day Special'
On 10 May 2015, Momzspace in association Art Blend Cafe hosted of of it's kind Mothers Day Special event. We kick-started the celebration with a casual introduction of all mom participants followed by a 'Health Talk' by Ranjani Raman. The talk was interesting as Ranjani made it very interactive by throwing questions like How many times you buy a grocery in a week? When was the last time you made your favourite dessert? What food item you crave for? and many more. 

After some insightful interactions she explained us that if you buying grocery more than twice a week than you end up buying more junk food, how is it easy for all moms to put a family at first for food preferences, the food item you crave defines you. This whole activity made the session interactive, interesting yet informative. 

When asked her what is she looking for the winner of 'Fit and Fabulous Mom', she says, "A mother takes care of her health and who takes the control of the kitchen." To find the winner Ranjani made all mom participants play game, and started eliminating one-by-one. And finally she found the winner of 'Fit and Fabulous Mom' Title. Smitha Ganapathy (Mom Entrepreneur) won the title of 'Fit and Fabulous Mom'.

For the Smart Mom Contest We have had invited Babita Jaishankar to Judge the Contest. It was amazing to see her as vibrant as ever along with two lovely daughters. She shared her success story and also told how important it is for mom to take care of herself.

On asking her what is she looking for in the winner of the title 'Smart Mom'? She says, "I want mom to be themselves, they need not be a Super Mom, but someone who excels at being a woman, a mother and a nice, humble human being in every respect. As the saying goes, there is no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to become a good one." 

She further added, "For me all moms are winners, and so declare the winner I'll pick the one who unique or adding value to society." I must say that it was a tough job for Babita Jaishankar to select one winner. So there was a tie between three Smart Moms, Deepa, Simran and Luvena.

This was the best Mothers Day ever! I started my Mothers Day celebration with 'Dream Run' with Soles of Bangalore , (thanks to Preeti Khattri for inviting me. This was the first time ever I ran after school days. Loved your signature style Dance warm-up session too.), attended commemorative meeting with my Buddhist friends and ended with an amazing celebration of 'MothersDay' at with Momz'Space Moms at Art Blend Cafe.
