Giving birth and being a mother is one of life’s greatest blessings bestowed upon women by God. Not everyone is privileged to become a mom, so this is something that women should cherish and be truly grateful for. But being a mother is not easy because motherhood is fraught with challenges. It becomes especially difficult for first-time moms who have no one to rely to for help and support.

I was glad that my mom was there to assist me when I gave birth to my son in 2006. I also had well-meaning friends back then who eventually became my son’s grandparents. And of course, my husband was there every step of the way. I was also grateful for online help. Each time I felt unequipped for a mothering task and there was no one to ask, I would usually search the Internet for the information I needed.

My online searches had given me quick replies to my queries regarding baby formula, colic, diaper rash, infant breathing and sleep problems, bathing, baby care, etc., and has shown me where I could get the things my son and I needed, like maternity bras, baby monitor, nursing bracelet, nasal aspirator, infant clothing and whatnots.

I was just glad that I became a mother at a time when manual help and online resources were both available because I got the best of both worlds. This made mothering so much easier because I had the assistance I needed when I needed them.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
