Jennica Garcia-Uytingco, the daughter of Jean Garcia, recently had a baby shower for her second child with husband Alwyn Utytingco. On her Instagram post, Jennica shared her heartfelt gratitude to their guests who celebrated the coming of their second child. She also shared her sentiments about losing friends who cannot understand that as a mother, her time with friends may have to be limited to prioritize her family.
Jennica is a very hands-on mother to their eldest, Mori, who is almost three years old. In the same Instagram post, she mentioned being available to meet friends only between 12noon and 5 pm. This is because she needs to prepare the family breakfast and needs to be at home in time for Mori’s bedtime at 6 pm. She used to breastfed Mori, prepares her all-natural food, and plans to homeschool Mori when she turns three. Such is the dedication of this inspiring mother!

This young mother really knows a lot! How can she even study and prepare for all the classes she leads and be a full-time wife and mother all at the same time? She is indeed a special woman who has an overflowing passion for learning and motherhood. Mori and her soon-to-be new sibling are blessed to have her as their mom.
