This past weekend we entered Baby Bug in the 54th Meadow Gold Healthy Baby Contest.
Basically, each child was scored in three different categories - healthiness, personality, and physical appearance. The 50 finalists will then move on to the final round later on this month with the winner receiving a $2500 US Savings Bond.
We didn’t enter Girlie Girl when she was younger so I had no idea what to expect. Talk about a mad house! There were over 1200 little contestants running around everywhere! Not to mention their parents, family members and friends who came to show their support. It was a little overwhelming.
What made things worse was that some of the parents were so stressed out in trying to prepare their child for their stage debut. Me? I took Baby Bug as far away from the stage as I could and just let her run around and have fun. After all, at 20 months, I don’t think coaching her would do any good. I figured we were there to try something different. And as long as she didn’t cry on stage, I would consider our experience a success.
So, how did she do? Check out the short video below.
Now we have to wait until the 17th to find out if she’s one of the 50 finalists. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
