So I was so happy that after lunch, Sabrina and Sherry said we can shop for our kids (and ourselves, too!) at their lovely Greenbelt 5 shop.
|Aww. So adorable!|
|I like that the girls' clothes look like little girls' clothes. I can't stand sexy clothes for little girls!|
The other mommy bloggers went straight to business. They perused the racks of cute clothes like professional shoppers!

I looked around but—big confession here!—I don't shop for my kids without their father's opinion. I don't even shop for my husband's stuff. When it comes to male fashion, I leave it to Vince to decide. So I waited for Vince and Vito to join us at Gingersnaps. I wouldn't have been able to do any shopping anyway. Iñigo was running and playing around the store happily!
What a fun fun day! Thanks, Gingersnaps! We had a great time. Let's do that breastfeeding line! I can see it now—Topaz Mommy and Gingersnaps Stylish Nursing Wear!
Anyway, I was so inspired by their story on building a business that loves children and expectant moms. I loved how Sabrina and Sherry are such successful women and amazing mothers. And I loved their gentleness most of all.
Gentleness is a quality I don't see anymore in women. It's not a quality I possessed. Ever. But as I become older, I find that there is value in grace, compassion, patience, kindness, quiet, discretion—all gentle traits, traits that have always been attributed to women (which I thought was a sexist attribution). But it's lovely. And to see women living so gently and so successfully inspires me to do the same.
