Momazing moments with Scott’s Vitamins

Fact: I left my day job because I refused to miss out on any more momazing moments. 

I always feel a little pinch of regret when I think about potty training, breastfeeding and weaning, adventures in solid food, and even baby’s favorite toys and activities, books and TV shows. Truth be told, I hardly have any memories involving these things with Little MrC because I wasn’t around much when they were taking place. It was my own mom who had the chance to experience all of these with my son because I had to work.

We weren’t always this inseparable.

 

Fast forward to several years later, when I finally took the leap to working from home. This was during the kiddo’s first year at big school. I just never wanted to have to miss anything else. The rest is history. Now I’m literally here for everything – homework, haircuts, happy days, sick days, dirty laundry and everything in between.

This is the story about why I choose to do what I do. It isn’t easy, but I love it. What I get out of it is that momazing feeling –  a sense of fulfillment in knowing that I am doing what I am meant to do as a mom, and that I am able to make every day count.

These momazing moments are exactly what the Scott’s Vitamin C #Momazing campaign is all about. I was so happy to have been given the chance to be a part of its launch event together with some of my mommy blogger friends. So happy, indeed, that we drove to SM Megamall on Mother’s Day weekend just to be there! If you know me, you’ll know how big of a deal it is for me to leave the south.

Kicking off the program, the hosts and GSK’s Joyce Uong talk about #Momazing moments

 

The program was hosted by two remarkable moms, Daphne Oseña Paez and Dimples Romana. Three guest moms were asked to share their stories of everyday momazing events with the audience.

First was Mommy Fleur, a working mom (she’s an engineer, wow!) who is the apple of her daughter, Anika’s eye. Next was Michelle aka My Mom Friday, who talked about being a stay at home mom, its perks and challenges. And finally, Mish, who spoke about being mom to a special needs child. Remember Gelli?

The sharing that morning was so heartwarming that listening to each of these mommas speak literally brought tears to our eyes! Check out this quick video to see for yourself. It felt like we all got to share an intimate momazing moment with each other that day.

While I enjoyed the super meaningful program, my little boy had the best time at the different booths around the event area. There was face painting, balloon twisting, and flip books. He and I also did the video booth, where we were both made to answer questions about me as a mother. Separately. To this day he won’t tell me what they asked him and what he said!

All in all it was a super fun morning for us, and totally worth the drive across EDSA. I went home with more momazing memories to add to my already overflowing treasure chest, plus packs of Scott’s Vitamin C Pastilles for the kid. These are great because it isn’t at all difficult getting the little ones to take them. They are so yummy!

Scott’s Emulsion, all in a row

 

Note to self, I’ve also got to get a bottle of Scott’s Emulsion for Little MrC to try. This variant contains Calcium, and Vitamins A and D. Perfect for the coming back-to-school and rainy season, as it helps to boost growth, development and immunity. Bonus: Scott’s Vitamins are produced by a brand that I really turn to and have really grown to trust over the years, GlaxoSmithKline. Yay!

  1. Vitamin C is one of the best way to maintain a child’s immune system. It’s great that Scott’s chose to partner with mommies — they are the ones who safeguard kids’ health

  2. I grew up from my grandmother’s care so I told myself, when I have my own child, I would be a full time mom because I knew how it felt not growing up with my mom. We are very close now however, though I’m 26 years old already, I still wonder what it feels like.

    Your son is very lucky to have you.

  3. We all love Scott’s vitamins over here! Wish we were also part of the event. 🙂 I heard feedback about it and they said nga that people got teary-eyed daw because of the sharing sessions.

  4. Funny because I was also in Megamall when this event took place. I just arrived in the area after. I would have wanted to meet the moms. 🙂 But I remember as a kid myself, my parents gave me Scott’s emulsion cod liver. I am not sure if this is the same company. 🙂

  5. Firstly, welcome back! hahaha. I miss reading your blog! Although, I visit your articles once in a while. Anyhow, yeah, me too, I didn’t want to miss any momazing moment..:) I miss you and Mish (and the kids, too!) Momazing moms talaga kayong 2, lam mo yan! Mwah!

  6. This takes me way back when my mom used to do those little cute things to me. ‘momazing’? haha, i thought it was a typo before it hit me how creative that word is. Was fun reading this

  7. GlaxoSmithKline has always been a trusted brand. And with vitamins, moms cant just pick random brands especially if it’s about the health and well-being of their children.
