#WIN with Baby Bullet presents Elana Afrika’s Baby Brunch

|By Elana| Free Stuff!, Home


Ellen DeGeneres says in her book that you should find out what your birth story is, and every year on your birthday, you should tell it to people. It’s not my birthday, but I called Mom to find out about my birth story. Talking to mom about my birth that happened as much as 37 years ago, is like asking me when last as a MOM I had time on my hands. I can’t remember, and neither could she. Our conversation went like this:

Me:  Mammie, I called to hear about my birth.
Mom:  What on earth for? I can’t remember.
Me: Can you remember nothing? Was it raining?
Mom: I don’t know, probably, it was August, and cold.
Me:  What time was it?
Mom:  It was a caesar, so in the morning. No, it was 2 PM.
Me: What was the doctor’s name?
Mom: He was Jewish.
Me: Spell his name!
Mom: Cohen. Dr Cohen.
Me: That was our GP.
Mom: Oh, yes, wait….That was your GP…it was Dr Barron.
Me: What else?
Mom: Are you pregnant?
Me: NO! I’m witting a story.
Mom: How are you feeling?

So…it was probably rainy and at 2 PM. Thing is, what Mom DOES remember is, when she got home with a newborn to a husband and 2 small kids, she did it all by herself. So did I, when my girls were born and so did a lot of parents when they had their babies. We did it by ourselves, with very little help, or A LOT of advice we couldn’t use. I thank the Almighty every day that I have a hands-on hubby. He does a lot for us. I am so grateful. The baby books can only teach us so much…and then you follow your instinct…or CRY. Well, I did.

Having 2 small kids is such a Blessing but it’s also really hard sometimes. I parent, travel, work, and I have 2 step children too. I’ve said it before, Motherhood is tough, even though it is the one thing that I had wanted all my life. We’re not just “having a baby”, we are raising a person. I often have mommies reaching out to me asking “how I do it”.  Well, we all have advice and a story to tell, and because of my passion for people and giving, I have decided to use my talent for good, and to launch an event where we can all feel supported, informed and have fun. #BabyBrunch. Elana Afrika’s Baby Brunch.

When I spoke about the idea, the team from NutriBullet who created Baby Bullet reached out and came on board as our presenting partner. Baby Bullet brings you Elana Afrika’s Baby Brunch. Lauren from KidsEmporium who have supported me through both my pregnancies together with The Gro Company, MIGLIO and Kabrita were excited to support my journey as sponsors and now ITS HAPPENING.  21 October is the inaugural Baby Bullet brings you Elana Afrika’s Baby Brunch and I have called up all my friends in the industry to create a fun morning of talks, interaction, conversations, food, candy-floss & balloons and of course prizes and goody bags. So now…all it needs is YOU. Yes, you as parent or aunty or daddy or Mom or Ouma. YOU!

A MASSIVE thanks to our presenting partner Baby Bullet and to everyone that has supported my journey and this event. To every goodie bag contributor, thank you! See the list below.

    Would love to win this. You don’t understand when people say that every pregnancy and every child is different until you experience it. That’s what happened to me
