In the post, LJ wears a crumpled top with her hair a bit messy. Her caption begins: "I think this photo sums up how I felt the past weeks. And I think a lot of moms could relate!"
At the time she took the picture, her second child Summer was sick. They were thankful that it only involved coughs and colds.
"Isang gabi, sumuka sya sa kakaubo nya," LJ continues in her post. "Somehow small kids spit up phlegm that way. Their bodies' way to get rid of it.
"Karga karga ko sya nun tapos hirap na hirap sya umubo. So pinapat ko yung likod nya to help her (somehow). And I kep telling her 'It's ok. Mommy’s here!'. Sobra kapit nya sakin. Hanggang sa sinusuka na nya yung plema."
Despite the mess, LJ didn't put down Summer.
"Tinanggap ko lahat ng suka nya punong puno ako ng suka. Pero di ko sya binitawan," she recounts.
Paolo Contis, LJ's partner, tried to convince LJ to change clothes, but the celebrity mom stayed with Summer until the latter fell asleep.
Paolo kept on reminding LJ to change her clothes until she agreed.
While changing, the GMA-7 actress caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror.
She continues in post, "Naisip kong kunan sarili ko to remind me that night, that moment na.. 'uy di na pala ako magisa!'
"Minsan nakakalimutan ko na andyan si Pao not because he's absent but because I was so used to doing everything on my own.
"Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na may taong nagaalaga din sayo."
LJ thanks Paolo "for being the father and partner that you are. Salamat sa pagaalaga sa amin!"
The Kapuso celebrity mom then adds, "And to tell my fellow moms na minsan ok lang di tayo makapagayos para lang sa pamilya natin. Sasaluhin natin lahat ng suka ng buong buo para sa kanila! Our journeys may all be different pero parepareho ang puso natin!"
In the comments section, Paolo sends his reply to LJ.
He says there's "no need to thank me naman.. duty kong alagaan kayo and i love doing it!"
LJ and Paolo announced that they were expecting a child together in August 2018.
They welcomed Summer Ayanna in January 2019.
Aki is LJ's nine-year-old son with ex-boyfriend Paulo Avelino.
