Last year, actress and devoted mom Jodi Sta. Maria talked about how looking after her son Thirdy makes her kilig every day.
This year, with her plate full, as she stars in the high-rating soap opera Be Careful With My Heart on ABS-CBN, as Thirdy enters big school, and as she manages a restaurant, find out how she stays on top of it all when you grab a copy of Smart Parenting's December 2012 issue!
Since the holidays are just a few days away, we decided to ask Jodi about her most cherished holiday traditions, the best presents she's received in the past, and qualities people don't know about her.
We also definitely felt Christmas in the air when we shot the charming mother and son during the cover shoot at Rustan's Alabang Town Center.
See Jodi's answers to our questions and our exclusive behind-the-scenes snapshots during the shoot!
