Making the Case for Corpus Christi Moms Blog

The early days of having a baby were much tougher than I expected. So, as a new stay-at-home mom, I didn’t get out much. I was intimidated and insecure. I didn’t know how to use a stroller. I feared my new baby coming in contact with germs. I felt more comfortable being inadequate in the privacy of my own home than in public. Although I knew I would make mistakes along the way, I feared the well-meaning advice and judgement I would receive from other parents.

I spent my nights awake with my son, a terrible sleeper who also suffered from severe reflux. I was sleep deprived and starving, having drastically altered my eating habits in an attempt to ease his symptoms. I binged on the internet, seeking answers and connection. I obsessed for months over articles, recipes, apps, and parenting hacks.

I looked online for hope from other moms who had similar challenges with their new babies. I was desperate. I needed to know things would get better.

Eventually, I started following various City Moms Blog Network sister sites and soon discovered I was not alone. I learned that often, there is no right answer. I found that moms can do things different ways and still be good moms. I experienced the reassurance and affirmation I longed for in a positive online community.

However, as time passed, I reflected on how little I knew about being a mother in Corpus Christi. I thought about the type of mom I wanted to be and the great memories I wanted to make with my son, but I didn’t really know how. I needed local mom friends. And because I was also stir crazy, I needed a project. I needed Corpus Christi Moms Blog.
