Get in touch, give me a feedback or just say hi.
You don’t need to use most of your vacation credits, nor have to spend too much time and money traveling to a faraway destination just to have a vacation. You can just stay within the city, shop and dine, explore corners unknown, and then relax in a comfortable hotel room at night.
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.
I am hosting a giveaway with stuff for moms as a little token of appreciation.
Please continue to support Morena Mom so that I can grow my followers for more giveaways like this from sponsors (crossing my fingers).
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 truly believe that family being the smallest and most critical unit of our society, we should do everything in our power to strengthen and nourish the bonds within it.
For our little family, Paulo and I figured that it will greatly help us as young parents and couple to be involved in a community centered to please and serve our Lord. Thus, we are members of Couples For Christ (CFC). We get our regular dose of spiritual nourishment through household bible studies, fellowships, encouraged personal bible studies, praying if the rosary with your family and enriching conferences.
Time is Money says Benjamin Franklin. How much do you believe that? I wear different kinds of hats and if I can save as much time as I can, that means I have a handful of time to divine for other things; watch a Youtube clip with my son, read my emails, household chores etcetera.
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!

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.

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.

Skin is the largest organ of our body, have you heard of that? Sure you do!
Eating healthy (tons of greens, water, and fiber), getting enough sleep and a lot of exercise were the stuff that I am guilty of not doing or at least wasn’t able to do these days. Yes, over and over again, motherhood is my excuse. Laughs. Who doesn’t want glowing skin? Most of my mommy friends rave about the miracle of argan oil.
