First Time Parents Morena Mom

First Time Parents Workshop

First Time Parents. Does that sound overwhelming to you when you were without a child or when you got one on the way? I remember when I was about to give birth to Elijah, I thought I was ready enough. Only to realize that I should have attended seminars to prepare for the struggles I would face when he is out finally, especially on breastfeeding. And so, now, whenever I get to know of seminars related to being new parents or parenting in general–I tellmy friends whom I know will benefit from it.

Wall Clock

Morena Mom’s Baby Blues

Right now, very sleepy because baby just slept but unfortunately I really cannot sleep. Time on our wall clock is 2:03AM. I want to write about that labor pains and delivery I experienced in Shiphrah Birthing Home but my brain juices won’t cooperate. So just writing down random thoughts to help me have a shuteye.

Giveaway alert: Kezi Baby

The mommy behind Kezi Baby the baby shop which offers headbands, shoes or onesies/shirt and terno dresses for mom and toddler experienced exactly the same thing when her Nathalie Keziah was born. She gets comments like “Pogi naman ni Baby” or “Boy yan?” as she only puts on white wardrobe for her newborn baby girl to easily see insects on it etc.

Elija's Meal

Meal and Baon Tips from Good Eats for Moms Workshop

Motherhood has many challenges, that’s what I realized in this almost 4-year journey I’m in. More to come, I’m sure. The latest challenge I face now is how to pursuade my 44-month old little guy to eat what’s on the table and to not ask for hotdogs or corned beef. More so, to plan and come up with inviting, amazing meals for him. Can I sigh on this part? Because I also ran out of meal ideas for my husband’s packed lunch.

Make It Epic

The Make It Epic Event in SM Megamall

My husband works from 7AM to 4PM, Mondays to Fridays. That’s why weekends are precious to us—we get to bond as a family, filling up Elijah’s happy memory bank.

Weeks ago we went to the Epic Race event by Hot Wheels at SM Megamall. It was an event open for boys aged 3-10 years old. Elijah has a thing about any toy with wheels, so perfect!

Smart Parenting Baby Shower

Morena Mom’s Smart Parenting Baby Shower Experience

I never liked baby showers, I declined a friend’s idea of organizing a baby shower for me when I was pregnant with Elijah. To me, it will just provide me anything but hassle. That changed last week.

Baby Showers are helpful to expectant moms, I realized while attending Smart Parenting’s Baby Shower event. Imagine a knowledge sharing session for moms-to-be from moms and professionals that can be useful to their own motherhood journeys. Learnings they gained will help them feel relaxed and prepared in welcoming a new life.

Learning Plus The First Homeschoolers’ Bookstore in the Philippines

When we were brainstorming on how to homeschool our Elijah, Paulo and I, we noticed that there wasn’t a bookstore dedicated for homeschoolers. That’s why most of the homeschooler visits book/toy fairs for their homeschooling materials. I also knew of many who purchased homeschooling items abroad. All of these were great ways to score homeschooling stuff. But isn’t it nice to have a homeschoolers’ bookstore?
