Get in touch, give me a feedback or just say hi.
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.
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 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
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.
Besides my awesome husband, babywearing gives my motherhood journey some sort of ease. That is why whenever there’s an event related to it I take the opportunity to show my support.
Shadrach’s Collection celebrated their 3rd anniversary as a dual celebration with the International Babywearing Week or IBW.
How nice is it to be pampered right? But how nicer it will be when it is in support to World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), or Save Philippine Seas while you get to indulge and rest for a couple of minutes?
There are a lot of diapers in the market, and yes you have to find the brand(s) that suits your baby. I saw Merries diaper one afternoon in one of our trips to the supermarket for groceries. I did not pay much attention as I wasn’t familiar with the name.
Luckily, Merries Diapers sent me samples that I can try. I learned that it’s Japan’s #1 baby diaper brand for 10 consecutive years. How exciting that it’s now available in the Philippines!
In finding a car, what did you consider? I remembered Paulo, my husband, checking different forums and reviews before contacting a sales agent.
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.
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.
SALE. DISCOUNTS. Yes, coupons! Who doesn’t like these? I don’t know about you but as a frugal momma, I. So. Love. Discounts.
I just recently discovered this coupons site, GrouponCoupons.
A too good cube-shaped jelly candies that will cater best to the vitamin needs of our growing little man. Packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as Lysine, Zinc, Vitamin A, B, C and E. Not only that, it’s very convenient to make him take it too because it is sooo YUMMY. Awesome, yes?
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!
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.
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?
