Hi all! Blogging has taken a backseat the last couple of months as I try to stabilise my hypothyroidism. I am getting better now and I must share my great news!
In mid-June my friend shared a post on Facebook to vote for her baby girl in a national baby of the year competition. Baby Of The Year 2015 with Peugot and The Sunday World. I clicked the link. Voted. And then read about what the competition is all about. After reading that there is a €5000 prize I decided it's definitely worth a shot! Afterall it's not really a bonny baby competition it's more of a popularity competition.
1851 babies were entered and the top 200 (as chosen by public vote) were announced last weekend. My girl Adelina made it!!
Now it gets serious because the top 200 will be whitled down to 10 finalists. This is also up to the public to decide and though it started as a bit of fun, the prize money now seems within reach!!
It's a funny feeling to go from, "Why not, sure we probably won't get through" to "Oh My, This is real, she could do this".
You can vote by following this link:
We would use the prize money to decorate Adelina's room which is practically a dumping ground and currently painted blue. We would paint our living room which has been unfinished since we moved into our house 3 years ago. We would get swings and a slide for the kids. I'm not going to lie. Most of the money will be spent on my own kids but of course we would donate some of the winnings to a children's charity. Probably Crumlin Children's Hospital.
Have you ever entered a competition like this?
What would you spend the prize money on?
