I can't believe it! One Awesome Momma has just turned 2! When I published my very first post 2 years ago, I didn't think I would have done the things I've been doing for the past 2 years. I didn't think I will love blogging this much! From the amazing community, the fun experience, and the awesome campaigns I've worked on, blogging is such a wonderful journey. Join me as I celebrate One Awesome Momma's 2nd...

It's almost Thanksgiving and you've probably seen a lot of posts about being thankful for all the blessings they've received, their family and friends. While I am also absolutely grateful for all these things and more, this year, I want to focus on the bad things that happened to me. It's not every day you get to hear someone say "Be thankful for the bad things in your life". It's hard to be thankful for...

We found out that my son has a severe peanut allergy on his first birthday. We were given an EpiPen prescription because there's a risk that he'll have anaphylactic shock if he ingests peanut. We immediately banned peanut inside our house as soon as we found out. It took us a while to get used to it because no one else in the family has an allergy (and I hope it stays that way); but...

child having a public temper tantrum, public meltdown I have to say that I've been VERY fortunate to not have to deal with a public temper tantrum for the entire 3 years since becoming a mom, until recently. To be honest, I've been dreading it because I don't know how to react or how I would handle it. My daughter is really sweet and cheerful; and although she would sometimes cry in public, she would ALWAYS listen to whatever I told her. Things would never escalate to a temper tantrum. I guess she learned early on that when Mommy says no, there's nothing she could do to change that. But, of course, my son is different. Although he is a happy and easygoing child,  he is also very strong-willed. When he says no, it would always be a challenge to get him to change his mind. And the same goes for when he wants something. And it was while I was out with him, when I got judged as a mother. He had a public meltdown; a full-blown temper tantrum that lasted for a while.

couple, man kissing girl on the forehead If you think a successful relationship is based on hard work, you are probably right. By introducing a couple of new activities and shaking up your everyday routines, your relationship will flourish. If you focus on what’s wrong it should be in an attempt to fix it. Don’t dwell too much on the negative stuff, shift some of that focus to introducing some novelties in the relationship. Research shows that this has a much better impact on your happiness as a couple. So, here are some things that can fortify your relationship and bring you closer to your partner.

My daughter first started showing interest in the potty when she was 18 months. Being the excited mom that I am, I rushed to my nearest Target the first chance I got and purchased this potty. One day, she said she wanted to go to the potty so we just sat her there and she peed on her own. That was pretty exciting for us but we didn’t do anything after that because her school...

Last weekend, my husband and I watched the movie Bad Moms. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this movie, it is about 3 overworked and under-appreciated moms who are pushed beyond their limits and ditched their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence. You can read more about it here. I liked the movie because the story is very close to my heart, not because I am overworked...
