Worry-Free Bonding with OFF! Insect Repellent Lotion!

Friday, January 06, 2017

     I believe that 'moms know best' when it comes to taking good care of their children. As a mother to my only son Kenzo, I always make sure to give him the utmost protection that I can give. If I could stay awake 24/7 just to make sure that he is still in great condition while he is sleeping, I will. But that's insane, I know that I need to make him feel secured all the times especially when he's outside the house. But I also need to stay calm and enjoy our day everyday especially when bonding together.

     I worry a lot of times especially when he's out of his comfort zone. At his age, he's prone to different bacteria and virus in the environment. There's only one thing I fear- insect bites and dengue! So in order for us to enjoy our bonding moments at home or in public places, I make sure that I bring a trusted partner with me- OFF! Insect Repellant Lotion :) Sharing with you tips and experiences on how to make bonding worry-free at all times below :)

Wednesday, December 07, 2016

     There's one store that Kenzo visits whenever we go shopping- a toy store! It's a normal thing for kids to check what's new in every toy store they visit. Kenzo's favorite toy store is Toys 'R' Us. He buys his Tomica, Hot Wheels, Fast Lane die cast cars there because they have wide assortment of models. This toy store is still the most established toy company in the world because they have a solid reputation of bringing quality branded toys that's why shopping experience at Toys 'R' Us is still the best.
