Our 23-month old boy loves to eat. He specifically loves fruits, cookies, and chocolates. So one Sunday afternoon, I thought of baking a cookie with bananas and chocolates on them. Also, we got boxes of Nestle Cerelac Brown Rice and Milk Dry Cereals and he just cannot consume everything. A bowl of Nestle Cerelac is packed with higher Iron content, Bifidus BL, vitamins, and minerals to help support a child’s growth and development. So why not share some with his family who also loves cereals.
I am a homemaker. I decided to resign from my corporate work about two years ago and concentrate on looking after my children. We’ve got three boys and that time, I was pregnant with our fourth.
I admit that with my first three boys, I let the yaya be in charge of my children. That includes playtime, bedtime, and even mealtime. I was so busy with work and so was my husband. My three boys all grow up healthy and wise. But if only I could bring back time, I would have chosen to be with them since the very beginning.
Now that they are all claiming to be grown ups, they could be real picky and often, that stresses me a lot.
When I was single and very much free, my favorite go-to place was either a bookstore or a hardware shop. Too often, I lose myself in books, spending hours browsing or even smelling those crisp pages. I would find myself there, too, with my hands weak and shaking from carrying far too many books to read at home. Nonetheless, it was still the best feeling.
Now that I have become a mom, priorities changed, though my love for books would always be there. I have come to love rereading my old collections or be unable to find my way out from being engrossed in my boys’ own book collection. Going to bookstores has become a second priority when we visit malls. I now find myself walking along the aisles of baby stores, clueless of my sheepish grin not until I see my boys giggling and talking behind my back.
Yes, I love going to baby stores. It calms and reminds me of my mere existence- motherhood. And one baby store I often visit is Baby Company. It is because they almost carry anything a mom needs for her little one. From basic essentials like diapers, baths, and clothes to baby splurges such as toys, shoes, and whatnot, we could count on Baby Company.
I seldom leave the house now as I find it difficult to walk around. I am 34 weeks pregnant and in a few weeks or a month from now, will be giving birth to our fifth boy. An invitation from Good Housekeeping Philippines came and it was too hard to resist. The country’s number one family and home magazine aims to bring a wealth of reliable information on a breadth of subjects that every homemaker cares about – Money Matters.
Who would have thought that one can create packed lunches using Maya Pancake Mix? Well, in our family, we use Maya Ready Mix in making waffles and crepes. We haven’t tried using it for salad wraps, though.
This momi would love to share a recipe she got from Maya Kitchen. Yes, to put the fun back into packed lunches, the Maya Kitchen has come up with great meal ideas. These are all practical and full of flavor and variety as they aim to satisfy especially our school kids.

It’s back-to-school time! As a homemaker and mom, we need to stock up on nutritious and delectable meals for our school kids. They need those to help them start off right, sustain their energy well throughout the day, and still end on a high note at night. Good thing we could always rely on Rustan’s Supermarket to help us with our supplies.

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
As a mom, I can be real overprotective of my boys. I buy a separate dishwashing liquid, for instance, for their utensils and plates. I have this notion that regular soap may be too harsh because little stomachs are extremely sensitive to chemicals.
We were on a tight budget. I tried to use our regular dishwashing liquid to my then one-year-old son. The fine prints at the front portion claim it is good even for baby bottles and the like. And so I tried it and was convinced.
