When I found out that I was pregnant with my daughter 5 years ago, I was so excited! As you probably already know, I love fashion. Other than the fact that we’ve been planning for a baby (and hoping for a girl) back then, I knew I’m going to have so much fun shopping outfits for her and with her. Little did I know that I’m missing one important aspect of having a daughter – hairstyle – which I don’t know nothing about! I’ve never been good with hairstyles. Since I was young, I’ve only known 3 hairstyles – wearing…

I can’t believe that the first quarter of 2018 is done just like that! The first 3 months of 2018 have been very eventful for me and my family. The kids pretty much spent most of the weekends of January and February attending their swim class; I made my daughter’s DIY wonder woman costume; we went to see Jurassic Quest when they were in town; my daughter has had to deal with mean friends;  my husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary (I have some tips on how to celebrate on a budget); and I found the cutest floral…

As a mom, one thing that I constantly ask myself is how to keep my kids from spilling liquids all over the place. This is mostly true for my son. Yes, we’ve tried those leak-proof sippy cups and they’re a lifesaver. However, because he thinks he’s such a “big boy” now, he won’t drink on closed sippy cups anymore (especially when he sees his older sister doing it so gracefully well). And when we’re out, I don’t know what’s up with these water bottles but somehow they look like a magical drinking instrument for him; because he always ignores his…

Last January, my daughter had an assignment in school. They needed to wear DIY superhero costumes. I asked her and she said she wanted to wear a wonder woman costume. Although I was VERY excited to make a superhero costume for her, I didn’t know how to make a toddler wonder woman costume. So I went to google and looked at several toddler wonder woman costumes available for sale and tried to imagine how I would turn the stuff she already has into a costume. Today, I’ll be sharing how to make a toddler wonder woman costume like a pro…

My kids were both born with sensitive skin. During the first year of their lives, they both had eczema. We’ve tried numerous products but nothing helped their skin. We’ve had countless doctor visits to see if there’s anything out there that would help improve their skin; but we were prescribed with steroids Every.Single.Time. The thought of applying steroids on my children’s skin made me feel uncomfortable, so I didn’t stop searching for that one product that would solve our problem. For the past 3 years, I’ve been searching for it; and I must admit, it has been exhausting. With all…

As a mom, one of my hopes is that my kids will have a wonderful childhood with a lot of fun memories that they will love looking back on when they’re older. And every time the season changes, I see it as a huge opportunity to give them fun memories they will surely treasure by doing different activities they’ll get to enjoy. Like every fall, I make sure we go to a fall festival or we go apple picking. And since we’re already midway through February, I am so excited for the weather to FINALLY warm up so I can spend some…

What to do when someone is mean to your child? As a parent, how would you handle it? We know that not everyone can be nice all the time; there are mean people out there! Although we know that our child getting hurt is inevitable; as moms, we try our very best to protect our kids from it. But sometimes, despite our best efforts, it happens; and we can only wish that the situation helps to toughen them up for the crazy world out there. That’s what happened to us one morning during daycare drop-off. My Daughter’s Friends Were Mean…

How was your January? Mine has been filled with birthday parties, swimming classes, and recovering from a virus. Last Christmas, my husband and I decided that we would be enrolling our kids to their very first swimming class instead of giving them material things as a gift for Christmas. So since the first Saturday of January, we’ve been taking the kids to their 9AM swimming class (except when they were sick)… what the hell were we thinking, right? I know!!! Anyway, here are my favorite Instagram moments last January! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram so you’re always up-to-date on what…

Welcome back! I hope you had an amazing holiday season!!! 2017 has been an amazing year for both One Awesome Momma and my family! Yes, we’ve encountered a lot of challenges and incidents that could have ended tragically during the past year like almost losing my daughter at the beach when we were celebrating my birthday, and rushing my son to the E.R. because he managed to eat some Reese’s peanut butter cups and had anaphylactic shock but we weren’t aware that he was having one. But through these, we learned valuable lessons; we came out of them stronger and…

For most people, this is the most wonderful time of the year. But for us moms, it’s the most stressful, not to mention, the most expensive time of the year. It’s that time when you’ve gotten so occupied with all the holiday activities and festivities that you wanted to do with your family. And also that time when you’ve stressed yourself out A LOT over what to give everyone in your holiday list; and how you’re going to fit everything in your budget. Unfortunately, with all these planning and stressing out, you tend to forget(or maybe didn’t even think about) to get something for the most important person in your life—yourself.
