By | Mother's Day, Philippine Star Lifestyle Section | No Comments

 Check out Words Worth by Mons Romulo and get some advice from working moms on how they balance their work and home :-)  Click on the article below to read the full articlework and home philstar mons 2015Thank you Mons for including me here and allowing me to share something.  I am adding some advice here, since I did not fully understand the question haha :-)

I always make it a point to have dinner everyday with my family because that is the only time we are all at home and it is the time when we can spend quality time with each other.  Going to mass together and Sunday family day is very important.  All these I get from the best Mom that I have who is the busiest working mom I know even until now that she is almost 70 years old, my Energizer bunny mom :-)
