And even though your body is changing, you’re so excited at the prospect of a new family member, whether it’s your first or not, that you don’t even mind. However, it’s okay to admit that when you have given birth, and your body doesn’t bounce back right away; you feel a little disheartened.

When Bigger Isn't Better: These Alternative Homes Are Guaranteed To Make You Want To Pack Your Bags!

For a lot of people, it often seems as though the only options they have when it comes to their homes are apartments or houses. Now, there's nothing wrong with that. People can often find some truly incredibly houses and apartments that they are happy in for years and years. However, if you're working on a budget, or even just looking for something a little bit different, these options can be kind of limited. That being said, there are many different options that you can choose from as long as you're willing to trade in a few things. The most common trade in when people are looking for an alternative home is space, but if you're willing to make some adjustments in your life, then you're likely to find that bigger isn't always better!

Health Insurance Is Vital In Modern Times, And Here's Why

All families in the US need to purchase a health insurance policy that protects their children. Many people get a deal of that nature as part of their employment package.

The information on this page will help to show readers why policies of that nature are so important in modern times.

Mompreneuer Life: But Where To Start When Working For Yourself?

Working for yourself can often be the dream for many, and as I have been fortunate enough to become a freelancer and work from home, I can tell you that there are some amazing benefits. Being around for your children for their school drop offs or when they need me, while still being able to bring an income into the family is a great feeling. But it takes a lot of work and dedication, and often the work and life balance can be merged. After all, your home is your office and often you can never feel fully off the clock with your working life. However, many people are still considering this move and I thought it would be an ideal time to share with you some of the things you should consider if you are deciding to take this big step. 

Incorporating Comfort Into Your Interiors Without Sacrificing Aesthetic

When it comes to interior design, most properties tend to swing one of two ways: the impeccable show home style house or the cluttered, well-lived-in home. Why? Because people tend to believe that presentation has to be all or nothing. They will spend hours poring over the minor details or throw caution to the wind and ensure that their house shows all of the wear and tear of everyday life. So, where do we draw the line and can we achieve a healthy balance? Of course, we can. The key to getting it right is moderation. So, here’s how to incorporate comfort and homeliness to your property without sacrificing a stunning aesthetic.

Positive Home Atmosphere & Happy, Healthy Families Go Hand In Hand

The home is an important space for the family. All parents are well aware of the feeling of wanting to protect your family at all costs. You want them to be happy, healthy and full of life, and achieving that can sometimes seem like something of an impossible mission. But much of what you need to do happens in the home, and as long as you are building up a happy home life, you are forging a strong foundation for your family to thrive in. In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the most beneficial things you can do to ensure that your home is the ideal space for your family to thrive in. Some of these are easier than others to carry out, but they are all essential.

Why We Love Pop Tops Juice Drink!

Kids love fruit juices, as much as possible they 'd drink more of it than water. I was just like them when I was little. I can still recall how my dad would always remind me to drink lots of water every day. I don't know how or when it started but surprisingly, I am now a water person and just like how my dad I would always remind the kids about their water intake. Anyhow, we're not going to talk about water on this post but about fruit juices. Lol! Since the kids love it, as a mom it is my duty to provide them with not just the best tasting but the best there is for them.

Of course, nothing beats freshly squeezed fruit juices but seriously who has the time? Yes, we can have some of those once in a while but frequently and during time-crunched days, we opt for the ones that are readily available or ready to drink, right mommas?

We have tried a lot of fruit juice brands and we have our own personal favorites and one of the latest ones we've tried which also made it to our list is, Pop Tops- Australia's favorite juice drink!

From the bottle to the juice, Pop Tops is designed to entice the young ones with its taste and packaging.

Pop Tops was developed with health and safety in mind. It is not enough that each child is satisfied. They have to benefit from what they consume in the long run. Each drink they consume is an investment in their future health, and Pop Tops is the only kids' beverage that delivers this in a way that children will love.” says director Neil Vincent Ching.

So, what do we love about Pop Tops? It comes in a handy-lunch box sized 250ml serving perfect for little tot’s drinking needs and for moms to carry in our purse. With the right serving size, moms will have a peace of mind that their kids get the nutrients that they need in the amount they want. Its bottle has a child-friendly grip designed for little hands, and a smaller drinking spout to avoid spillage and mess. With a pop-top cap, the drinking is resealable! 

Pop Tops is made from real fruit juice, with 30 percent less sugar and less sodium, and has no artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. On top of that, Pop Tops juices are made in Australia with the highest quality and safety standards that our children deserve. 

Apart from that, the colorful characters from the Pop Tops bunch, led by Alfi Apple and Oli Orange adds fun to our kid’s drinking experience!

Have you tried it yet? Let me know what you think!

Why should schools invest on Rubber Mulch

I personally support going the natural way of dealing with things, but it can change when the fun and safety of my kids are involved. We tell our kids how their teachers are like their second parents at school so why not make school a better and safer place for kids to consider it as their second home too?

Playground and parks normally have grass flooring which helps make the place children friendly but there are cases where natural grass areas become muddy and unsafe in wet conditions, thus; where Rubber Mulch comes in handy as it provides a natural looking flooring option which still protects kids from injuries when using play equipment.

A friendly place to get more information on what Rubber Mulch is and how to get it installed on outdoor playground, recreational areas at schools nurseries and even on parks can be easily found at Soft Surfaces.

What I love most about this ingenious idea is that they reused truck tires which also promotes the importance of reusing waste and turning it into something that helps people. You also won't need to do any ground works like removing trees. It can even be installed on mud and tarmac surfaces as it's particularly adaptable. A big +1 for being environment-friendly right?

There are no more worries when we see our kids fall down with the impact absorbing rubber mulch. We can simply let our kids be kids and let them pick themselves up whenever they fall down. A +1 on parenting for that part I must say.

Cost wise it's quite budget friendly and economical because their product comes in various colors and design which makes it flexible to work on your budget. You can easily get a quotation by visiting their website. Here's a sneak peak on how the installation is done: 

Children learn as they play. Most importantly in play, children learn how to learn.

In the medical world, proper use of words is highly called for because a simple mistake could complicate things usually unwanted for the patients. Because this field has full of jargons that mostly are too technical to not easily be sifted and digested by the general public, putting them in a layman’s term is indeed helpful.

A good example of which are the words “side effect” and “main effect”. These, are more often than not, interchanged or used instead of the other. Doing so is not just wrong but also dangerous to the people’s health.

A side effect of any substance pertains to the result beyond the main or primary action that is intended by the physician giving drug prescription. The doctor, likewise, foresees this extra consequence.

Let Kids be Kids at the Biggest Kiddie Party Ever! #SMKidsCity2017

Having fun, guiding our kids, loving them, and letting them enjoy their childhood is our most important roles as parents. Most parents especially working moms would have to admit though that it's not as easy as it sounds. I already consider myself a supermom when I get to squeeze in an extra activity or bonding moment with my family. Oh, how I wish they can stay as kids forever but time would definitely not allow it. That's why it's important to seize the moment and spend as much time with our kids as possible. Our usual bonding time is going to the mall to eat, shop, watch a movie and even shopping but last Saturday, July 29, we spent quality time at SM Southmall for the launching of the biggest kiddie party which SM Supermarket and Savemore Market is throwing; SM Kid's City! 

I don't know who was more excited me or the kids because there was so much going on! There were freebies everywhere! We got to experience the different taste of URC, Knorr, Purefoods, Maggi, Lucky Me!, American Garden, Nexttrade Philippines, Papa Catsup, McCormick, Federated Distributors Inc., Lady's Choice and Delimondo. 

There were also interactive activities for everyone where we get to witness the effectiveness of the products from Pampers and Johnson's Baby which can all be found at SM Supermarket and Savemore Market. 

Imagine, all our favorite brands gathered together to throw a kiddie party where everyone is invited to enjoy fun games, cool rides, exciting activities, special promos and awesome guests like the Minions, Team Yey and my kids' favorite Pororo! and again did I mention that admission is FREE?! 

Kids enjoying the free rides!

Activity area for the kids, where they can color, play and have fun!

Food is life as my youngest daughter likes to say and Kids' City has SM Eats that offers its best-selling turon with langka that's considered as Pinoy's "Pambansang Merienda" along with rice meals, lumpiang togue, cheesy corn, brownies, and soft serve icecream. Also in the city are Pizza Pedrico's, Daisee's Cupcakes, Aling Nene's Kakanin, Galax Kakanin, Infinit Biscocho, Ivy Sushi, and Starkaffea. This surely made it easier to make our bonding time fun filled and productive at the same time because I was able to shop some goodies as they were offered at a discounted price. 

We surely had a blast especially the kids. 

What are you waiting for moms and dads? Let your kids be kids at SM's Kids' City. Roadshows scheduled is as follow: 
  • · SM Fairview on August 5

Turn Your Home Into a Family Space You Can All Enjoy

If you have a family, you need a family home. But not every home functions in that. There are things that you can do to make your home more of a family space. And when you manage to pull those changes off, you will have a home that everyone in your family can enjoy and be happy with. Here’s how you can turn your home into a family space that you can all love and enjoy.

Make the Kitchen Diner the Hub of the Home

The kitchen diner should be the room that you spend most time in together as a whole family. If you don’t really have a kitchen diner or it’s broken up into multiple rooms, this is something worth changing. If you have a space with a dining table and a breakfast bar, you can eat together and be social at the start of the day, as well as at the end of it.
