  1. My favorite post in your blog is “Mommy Talks – Daphne Osena Paez”. It’s an insight about Daphne’s breastfeeding with her children. It’s true breastfeeding is a skill and commitment. She’s lucky, everyone in the household supported her because I am not. My son is 5 months and 15 days, though. I am working on relactating again – milk loss. Hope, I’ll be successful.

Thanks for that!

    My favorite post in your blog was about Mommy Moments – Nutrition Tip. I have a hard time letting my daughter eat nutritious food especially in her age. I remember the food pyramid after seeing in your blog that my daughter didn’t have that enough nutrients she need.I learned a lot of tips from it in your blog and its very useful to me as a mom who only want for her child is to grow healthy and strong!
    Thank you so much!

  13. My favorite post in your blog is your interview with Ms. Daphne Osena Paez at Mommy Talks. I have known Ms. Daphne as Breastfeeding Advocate, and I salute her for being one. Aside from being a working mom and a Celebrity she managed to master the skills to succeed in giving breast milk. It’s true anyone at first could experience difficulties in doing breastfeeding. We could experience soreness in one’s breast, scanty flow of milk and etc., but I do believe in seeking support to our families and most importantly have an optimistic outlook so as to succeed in giving breast milk. I do consider myself a breastfeeding advocate. I have a baby who’s 18 months old now and still I’m giving her pure breast milk aside from giving her complimentary feeding.

    My favorite post would be Mommy Talks. I’ve read and learned a lot from single moms featured in your blog interviews. Though they are single moms, working almost half the clock a day and loaded with stuffs to do at home and taking care of their little angels they managed to be successful both as a career woman and a mom. It shows the strong points of a woman. I’m always inspired of what a mom can do that has always been beyond our imagination. So happy and exciting to be a Super Mommy.

  15. Congratulations for the huge success of your Blog. May all the Mommies in every parts of the Philippines and in the World get the chance to read all your posts. Aja! Aja!

  16. Congratulations again and much love to all your Blog Posts. Keep them comin’.. God bless!

  17. My favorite post in your blog is “To Reward Or Not?” This is because as a sunday school teacher on kids, I was able to learn about Internal and External Motivation. Internal motivation for achieving or accomplishing something often makes them want to try even harder. So in teaching kids, when they are noisy and doesnt want to obey. It is best to create an Internal Motivation in them so they will listen and try hard or do best to obey.

  18. Happy 3rd year anniversary!

  19. Congrats on your 3rd year anniversary Chris! What a milestone. I wish you more success!

    I am joining the contest!! My favorite post is: To Reward or not! I have been thinking a lot about this lately. I want Sean to grow to be a nice boy and not a spoiled brat. So I don’t to give reward on every good behavior he does because it would seem like he gets paid for doing something nice di bah. I want him to know that his good behaviour is appreciated so I will give him reward from time to time.

  20. My Favorite post is the “Mommy Talks-Daphne Osena Paez. Why? Because, by reading it I got inspired to exert much effort to breastfeed my future baby. I am frustrated with myself because I never breastfed my son. I don’t have any idea about how to increase the volume of breast milk that’s why we opted to formulas. Now, I learned some trick that I can use in the future.

  21. My favorite post is Mommy Moments – Nutrition Tip. As a mother myself, I would like the best for my son, one of which is to be able to give him proper nutrition. Toddlers are usually picky eaters and its a common dilemna for us moms. I therefore would like to share with other moms what are their experiences on this.

  22. I can relate sa family time. Yan ang madalas ginagawa namin ng boys ko. As a single mom I need to give all the attention and love kahit magisa ako. We go one place to the other. Maximaze the time ng lakad. Kunting gastos for food minsan pa nga meron pa kami baon. Makapamasyal lang at maiba ang view. Hindi naman kailanggan may bilhin na things when you go out. Its the paglilibang bonding is important.

    My Favorite is the Mommy Moments – Nutrition Tip. This post helps a lot especially to mom like me who have a picky eater kiddos. Just always follow food pyramid to make sure that your kids get the proper nutritions they need. The nice thing about this post is that you discussed with your kids the importance of each food group & the right amount of each food group our body need. I also love your Family Time -Mall Hopping post, despite your very busy time you always make sure you have your family time.

  35. My favorite post is ‘To Reward or Not’ because sometimes it confuses me whether it’s right to tell my son that I’ll treat him to his favorite restaurant if he gives me higher academic grades though he already keeps his grades up. I realize that it is not the right thing to do instead I should just motivate him in a different manner. What really matters to me now is that he understands his lesson well and that he enjoys learning.

    My favorite is when you featured Daphne Osena-Paez since I’m also a fan of her blog. I became more inspired to continue breastfeeding my daughter after I read your article. And even until now as I work, I do my best to continue with exclusive breastfeeding. It is such a sacrifice but it’s definitely worth it! I will do everything for my daughter.

    Congratulations to your blog on its 3rd year! May you continue inspiring us! 🙂

    My fave post from your blog was the Mommy Moments: Dear Daddy.

  42. My favorite post in your blog is “Mommy Talks – Jenny Ong”. I have 2 boys and breastfed both of them while having a career of my own….it wasn’t easy but I did it! All for the love of my children, I want them to have the best care I can give. Reading your blog featuring Jenny Ong made me go back to those good old days…..painful but fulfilling. I’ve always encouraged my mom-to-be and new-mom colleagues to breastfeed no matter how busy they are with their work.

  43. Oopps, sorry, forgot to include my name and email in my earlier comment.

  44. Hi Mommy Chris, congratulations on your blog’s 3rd anniversary. I hope I can emulate this feat! My favorite post from your blog is “Mommy Talks – Daphne Osena Paez.” I’m a breastfeeding advocate, exclusively breastfed by daughter for 6 months then mix-fed her until now. Reading her experience and commitment is an encouragement to all mothers out there. Daphne is a fine example of a mother who despite her work and busy schedule still found the time to nurture her kids the best way – breastfeeding. She also proved wrong those people who say that breastfeeding would leave a mother “losyang.” Reading the post brought back the good old days when I would cradle Leia and feed her. Hands down it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made as a mother. It established our bond as mother and daughter.!/lany.delacruz

  45. Thanks for dropping by my site mommy chris! We might bump into each other at MIBF, if GOD’s will. BTW, Happy 3rd blogversary! I want you to know that this site was among the list of blogs that was favorited by me the first time I started blogging. Keep it up and GOD bless you!

  46. I like the posts where you share the parenting pointers you read especially the one about Teaching Values. I also like the feature you had of Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan on Mommy Talks.

Thus informing everyone who spends too much time online to get help if ever they feel that they are already addicted.

    I like the Internet addiction. I can relate on that post feel so down when I cannot use the computer I even use my phone to access the internet or even go outside and rent for an hour or two just to open my Facebook or twitter.And sometimes I even forget my daughters assignment and not to clean the house or do my chores at home.There is one time that my husband and I had this fight because of my addiction on the internet.But know I lessen my time on the internet.

  53. Hi Mommy! I’m joining.

    Well, my favorite post of yours is all that fall from the category of parenting. Maybe because I am a newly mom who doesn’t have any idea on how to make a perfect relationship to her child. Yes, I do ask for tips and advises in terms of this role. And aside from it I do search it online. Now that my son is grown up it would be more hard for me since he now reacts on what I do and what i plan to him. well, i guess it’s part of being a parent.

My favorite post in your blog is “Mommy Talks – Daphne Osena Paez” because It gives a lot of ideas and tips on being a mom specially me as the father who lack of information because of work schedule,and not always at home. It was not for my wife but for me and for the whole family.That was our favorite because we support her advocacy.

I will start teaching my eldest how to save money starting next year..LOL. Kidding aside, nowadays, mommies should teach and guide all their kids especially in money matters.

    Hi. My favorite post is under Parenting – To reward or Not. It’s very helpful to me. I am a first time mom here and we will welcome our child to our world Feb 6, 2012. Now I am practicing on how to discipline a child through my nephew. My nephew is very stubborn and sometimes I tend to bribe him just to follow what I want him to do. Sometimes even bribery is not working. Now I know that bribing is really not a good practice. Thanks to that post! Hopefully my baby wont be that stubborn =)
