Why Worry? Be the Best Mom with Plan B

Sunday, February 24, 2019

     My mission in life is to be the best mom for my son and my life as a stay-at-home mom is not perfect but it's one of the best things that ever happened to me. As a full-time mom, my day begins before sunrise and ends past midnight. I'm in charge of the house chores like cleaning the house, doing the laundry, washing the dishes, and to look after my one and only son. I can literally say that my hands are full when it comes to family matters because from sun up to sun down, I need to have the energy to survive more than 10 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    I'm grateful for the challenges and worries that I've encountered the past years because it taught me to be stronger and optimistic than ever. I'm a self-confessed clean freak and my family's health is important to me. I always worry about three things: the nutrition that my son gets from the food that we eat, the germs that will make him sick, and the quality time that we are going to share every day as he grows older. Sharing with you my realizations this 2019 and the things that I do to have a worry-free life and be the best mom for Kenzo below.

Why Worry? Be the Best Mom with Plan B

Worry-Free Life

     My son is a picky eater and this means limited food choices for us to cook for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There were times that we resort to fast food in order for him to eat lunch or dinner if he doesn't like what his daddy prepared for him. This is a no-no practice because it's not healthy and there will be risks in the long run. 

Why Worry? Be the Best Mom with Plan B

    Like what I said, I'm a clean freak that's why germs are not welcome in our home. I'm at peace when my son is at home but I worry most of the time when he's outside the house. I don't know what germs he might catch at school or inside the school bus. Is he washing his hands before and after eating, do his classmates cover their nose when they sneeze and so on and so forth? Quality family time is important. As much as possible, I refrain my son from using his iPAD at bedtime or when he just came home from school.

Be the Best-Ever Mom

     With all these worries, I'll have a heart attack right any time now but kidding aside, it's easy to lessen the worries as long as there is plan B in every situation and a helping hand to solve when these problems arise. In order for my son to eat his lunch at school, I make his meals fun to eat. One example is a home-made burger in different shapes plus fluffy rice will do. Instead of using iPAD at bedtime to watch cartoons or other videos, I encourage him to watch "Mga Kwentong Pambata" or any history related video. 

Why Worry? Be the Best Mom with Plan B

     When it comes to health and wellness, I have a long-time partner in keeping my dishes germ-free and clean. It's a long-time relationship because I've been using it since time immemorial. Let me share a little story about Joy. It is the dishwashing liquid that we trust for years now and I'm glad that they launch a new formula that makes washing dishes a breeze.

     It saves time especially on hard to clean sebo. If the grease is so hard to remove, scrubbing may take more time and I'm not sure if I really removed it properly if I'm using other brands. With Joy, a little amount goes a long way. No need to dilute in water since the formula is the Best-ever Joy that has more cleaning power to remove sebo and have zero-worries. The new formulation is easy to rinse and smells nice too.

     I also use Joy to spot clean sebo stains on our stovetop and dining table. What I do is drop a little amount of Joy in a soft cloth gently scrub the sebo until it melts. Another hack that I want to share is I use Joy in washing the kitchen cloth that I use to clean our dining table instead of washing it in the washer. It's fast and saves time because no soaking is needed. Just a few drops of Joy, water, and a little hand washing will do.

     I may not be perfect but I can be the best mom for my son. It's the plan Bs that I make and the help from Joy that will surely keep me worry-free this 2019. So mommies, for tough stains and hard to remove sebo, I highly recommend the Best-Ever Joy dishwashing liquid. Worry no more and be the best mom because you have more quality time with the family.

  2. Same tayo ng worries and i have plenty to add pa haha bilang SAHM with 3 kids. It is normal to us moms na madaming worries when it talks bout our kids. I manage the house too and strictly time management is important. I set aside chores later after am done with the kids. I attend to their needs first before anything. House chores can be time consuming so to speak, and i am saddened that i may not have spare time for the kids na kasi occupied ako sa tasks. Good thing i chose Joy. It is best to choose your perfect cleaning partner so time will never be wasted. Aside sa tantamount labahan, piled dishes ang kalaban ko everyday. Glad there's Joy to the rescue. Ive been using Joy pack for the longest time and i transfer it to an empty container. I get to save kasi isang patak lang and the greasy plates turn to a clean sebo-free plates just like magic👏 Kaya #zeroworries ako and madami time for storytelling and playing with them.

  8. I am mother of two and they are both picky eaters so when it comes to preparing their food I always have plan B and sometimes if plan B failed I still have plan C. Joy dish washing liquid is also my partner in washing our dishes and for me it is a great product.

      You'll get through that when you are a parent. I guess the joys of having a family will somehow lessen your worries. But it will always be there.
