Just like the rest of us, Marian Rivera-Dantes is also working double-time at home to keep her family busy and comfortable during the quarantine.
These days, the mom of 4-year-old daughter Zia and 1-year-old son Ziggy is keeping busy with finding activities for her kids to do at home. From home-studying to doing fun arts and craft activities, Marian is exploring a whole new world of possibilities for her family.
At the same time, she remains hands-on with planning and preparing food for her family. “Iyon ang pinakamahalaga na maihain ko sa kanila kung ano ang dapat at ligtas para sa kanila,” says the health-conscious mom.
She makes sure to get fresh ingredients and to complete her grocery list at WalterMart. With the ECQ still in effect, WalterMart Supermarket’s delivery service is a big help for “WalterMoms” like Marian.
WalterMart’s hassle-free grocery shopping experience is accessible through the WalterMart Delivery Service at www.waltermartdelivery.com.ph. You no longer need to worry about the risks of going outside the house to buy your groceries and other essentials.
For those who still wish to visit the supermarket, rest assured that WalterMart implements the 4S Program (Screening, Sanitation, Social Distancing, and Service) across all WalterMart Community Malls to ensure the well-being and safety of the families and communities it serves amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Marian’s Mothers’ Day greeting
Aside from mommy duties, she is also sharing her blessings with others by giving support to COVID response frontliners and organizing donation drives for the displaced. She also keeps on inspiring and encouraging fans and fellow moms to stay strong amidst the challenging situation we are all currently in.
Truly, Marian has become a model mom for all, and she owes it to the two amazing women who molded her to become the person she is today.
In a recent Mother’s Day-themed Instagram post, Marian shared her personal story about her “two moms.” First, her lola, whom she fondly calls Nanay, after her parents separated when she was two. Marian says it was her Nanay, whom she considers the heart of the home (puso ng tahanan), who taught her that she can surpass anything through determination, faith in God, believing in oneself, and through the help of people who love you. For Marian, these are the very values that have contributed to her success.
And then, there is also her mother, who she became close to later in her life and she now considers her best friend.
This Mother’s Day, Marian thanks all moms for taking care of and loving their families. While she feels sad about the current situation, she feels it is important that “we stay strong together,
stay in touch, and inspire each other.”
“Kung may kapitbahay na nagtutulungan sa oras ng kagipitan, tayo namang mga mommy ay magkakapit-nanay,” she suggests.
This Mother’s Month, Marian gives a special salute to our Kapit-nanay frontliners: the doctors, nurses, police, military, government workers, food and grocery workers, OFWs, and all essential workers. She believes that together, “Kaya natin ito dahil magtutulungan tayo. Mabuhay ang mga #KapitNanay.”
