Today was a real treat for all the Instamama kiddies. We had a meet up at The Playstation, Cape Town! Sophie And Jane did the organizing and boy did she do good. From the minute I walked in I was so chilled, the group of mama’s was just so awesome. So real. It was such a pleasure getting to know those who werw there better.
But wait let me explain! Instamama’s are those mum’s you see running after their kids with a cell phone camera who then post what they are up to on their social media. But it is so much more than that! It is a community. It is mama’s supporting mama’s. It is a WhatsApp message to someone late at night when your kid just will not sleep or has just vomited for the third time because you gave in when they were having a tantrum and let them eat that extra cupcake before bed. Those are the instamama’s and some of which now I consider my closest friends. Uniting women through social media. #instamamameet has now become a widely used hashtag in South Africa
I have been to a few of them and each one has been so different. The Playstation today was the perfect venue. The kids all had a ball and the mama’s got to drink delicious coffee and talk. Elijah was dressed by Dandylion Kids and I wad dressed by Bella Mama Designs. There were even prizes. Oh Lief sponsored a lovely gift box, there was a mommy massage from Mommy Wellness, a two hour play from The Playstation and first prize was a photographic shoot by NX Photography worth R2500! I can not wait for the next one! Will we see you there?
