Who doesn’t like great deals? But isn’t it nice to pay forward, too?
Baby essentials were one of those that I buy in bulk as it’s a given that it’s way cheaper that way, especially on diapers.
September is the month I will give birth to our third child Ena. It’s so timely that Baby Company is having the Diaper Deals Drive. So, this momma took advantage of it as I need to stock up on diapers for my little girls.
As a mom it’s vital to be always aware of what’s new — although, Cetaphil Baby is not totally new at all, my close encounter with it was just that afternoon — everything is changing that’s a fact. That’s why, one of the things motherhood had imparted to me was: every so often there will be new products and scientific studies available that may have not been available before – the least I can do is to update myself with new products/researches and how it can better our family’s life. It is indeed true that in this day and age, it is way easier for moms to go about their motherhood journey as help and information is readily available now compared before.
With all the expenses in our homes, I don’t know about you but me, I make sure that everything is within our budget. However, there are a few exceptions especially when it’s about food and my children. But you see, there are occasions that COMFORT and COST mix so well! That’s what I am always in a lookout for.
You see, fruits and vegetables provide a myriad of health benefits that can help protect our kids against all kinds of diseases. By starting a healthy lifestyle during their formative years, our kids can have long-term advantages that they can hold onto later in life.
Parents, I hope you will be glad with this news! Beko launched #EatLikeAPro to help eradicate our unhealthy eating habits.
Today marks the 37th week of my pregnancy with Ena, our third baby. Thus, my hospital needs to be prepared by now and yes it is.
So, what’s inside it?
I got to experience this because a fairy godmommy have us borrow her Tula FTG in Discover, Ella was 7 months back then.
Now that we will be having a newborn again, I figured it’s the best time to use and utilize it with a really tiny baby. Also, talk about how much our family can save that we don’t need to shell out for the infant insert’s cost and there’s no need to change the carrier yet as up until the baby is 45lbs!
I love how Johnson’s has this advocacy to empower moms and remind us that it’s the moments born from those not-so-picture-perfect realities of motherhood; tantrums, whining, endless whys, unexpected ugly (upset tummy) episodes in a restaurant while you should be enjoying your meal, stained treasured clothing pieces all these that you and I survived.
One of the things that made my yaya-me, SAHM life rather, is having a carrier – a lifesaver. Among the types of carriers available, I’m more comfortable with SSC or Soft Structured Carrier because all I have to do is to strap my child on my body with it.
Whenever we are at the mall, Elijah often request to play at the pay-per-hour play areas. I let him because he doesn’t have much choices (stations to play in) and playmate (aside from his sister) whenever at home. In short, he was confined with his not-so-many-toys and books inside our house. This is also a time for me to relax a bit while sitting there waiting for his time at the play area/center to be finished.
On my list of menu for the week, one of the meals I cooked for them is this Sautéed Broccoli Paired with Fried Tuna. Why did I say that this is a healthy dish for my Eli and Ella? Broccoli and Tuna were good sources of protein, iron, magnesium, carbs, fiber, minerals and potassium. In terms of vitamins, there is a wealth of vitamin B12 and niacin, as well as a good amount of vitamin B6 and riboflavin. My daughter is under a weight gain plan, if I may mention. That’s why I am very intentional of what I feed her (them) these days.
Our dearest Ella has a health issue and is under a weight gain program. It includes more protein intake as the physician suspects that my body isn’t producing milk to address enough caloric absorption — I also noticed that I am no longer experiencing engorgement anymore. “Of course, your system will prioritize the unborn baby inside you.” she explained. We were advised to give vitamins and milk supplement.
One thing I figured about motherhood is, it is overwhelming yet very fulfilling.
I don’t complain. I won’t complain as I have a wonderful husband. He is a great provider and overly understanding. Every time he goes back from work to a messy house–toys and books on the floor– he smiles and understands. Oh I love him so so much. Come weekends, he has no work. More often than not I will wake up to a husband busy doing the dishes or washing the dirty electric fans, scrubbing the bathroom walls while the washing machine is in full swing with the laundry.
We survived the summer and its scourging heat through frequent bathing and shower.
My kids don’t have a super sensitive skin but it tends to react to the summer weather. My little girl Ella developed some rashes on her nape over the summertime. That’s when I decided to try Aveeno Daily Wash & Shampoo together with the Soothing Relief. I first saw my best friend using these products and I was hesitant to try back then. It wasn’t until I purchased some Aveeno Baby items during a big sale of a membership shopping store.
I have shared here that our little guy is now into scribbling and drawing things. And so it excites us both to know that BIC® launches a collection of coloring products designed especially for kids!
A collection of writing and coloring products especially designed for children aged two to ten years old, the BIC® Kids’ line comprises of high-quality yet affordable products that are all compliant with EN71 European toy industry standard.
I never would have this appreciation of Mother’s Day if I haven’t been a mom myself. Malls jam-packed on this day is a normal scenario. Sure I am one of those who would patiently line up in the long lines of people outside or inside a bakeshop to get their Mama a cake for this day. But I never would understand how much a mom deserves more than that until I too became one of them. Motherhood is more than just doing the piles of laundry or preparing a meal. It’s the willingness to give yourself if needed to those children of yours. That is maybe why a mommy deserves more than a cake for that day.
Have you noticed at least one of your child’s natural gifts or talents yet? My firstborn showed interest in arts late last year and so we enrolled him to the Arts and Crafts workshop for this summer to help him enhance it. I think that’s what all parents would do – support their child in every way possible for their best interest.
I wasn’t born with poor eyesight but I have slight issues with it since college. Luckily, it’s so minor that I can defer using one. I am on my thirties now and still with no spectacle. I just feel like it’s so inconvenient for me to move around with those especially now that I am a mom. w
What’s your favorite household chore(s)? Mine is definitely NOT washing my children’s clothes—oh how it pains me to attend to those small articles of clothing! But what can I do? Aside from the fact that motherhood comes with it, I cannot have their items be washed by our neighbor laundry shop as they have sensitive skin. Their Pedia even said it’s close to mild atopic dermatitis. Still atopic dermatitis, right?
Growing up I never believed that I am beautiful.
What is beauty if the brain is empty? That’s what I always wrote when asked to fill-out an autograph’s or slam note’s section for DEFINE BEAUTIFUL. What a bitter try to answer it right? I don’t know about you but I was made to believe that being morena is not at all beautiful — back in the ’90s I saw tons of beauty ads with a mestiza in it.
Good oral health care is crucial at every age, but it’s especially important during childhood. That’s why it’s critical that parents have accurate information about their kids’ teeth. Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths about child dental care floating around out there. Whether these myths come from friends, family, or misinformed internet forums, they can be harmful to your child’s dental and overall health.
