My name is Mercy Christian. Devoted mom of two wonderful and lovely kids, Dominion and Olive. I run this blog. I’m a wife, caring mom, foodie, child care expert and volunteer.Lover of God and humanity. Lifestyle blogging became a big part of my life since I had my second child in April of 2017.

My Childcare Experience

I have served different mothers for over 10 years by taking good care of their children before settling down to start my own family.

I was also privileged to volunteer freely in a school by showcasing my passion for childcare in the crèche and nursery wards.

My Failure

After the birth of my first child, I had no knowledge about Child Nutrition which I had craved for a long time. Neither did I had the opportunity to go for a course in that category. This lack of knowledge in this case led to my numerous mistakes on appropriate feeding on my first child. I regretted the fact that he broke down several times Base on lack of proper nutrition. Not that there was no money to take care of him, but I fell for trending and over processed foods With so much artificial and  unhealthy preservative without knowing some of their side effects.

My Victories

During my second pregnancy, I was ignited to search for an online course on Child Nutrition.  I finally completed it and my joy to showcase my knowledge knew no bound. So i made use of that opportunity to apply my skill on my picky-eater son, while I was still pregnant. I was also doing myself and my unborn baby more good by eating good food with good source of nutrition. Till the day she was born, the positive effect of what I had been eating reflected on her well-being. She’s so cute and healthy that everyone around her wants to be with her. I kept on giving her good food packed with goodness of nutrition.

My Exposure

My victories has really exposed me wherever I go with my kids. People ask and keep asking what I give my kids that makes them glow so much and so healthy. I am always happy share my strategies with them via this blog and my Facebook Group.

My Pains:

If there is one thing I regretted is that, I didn’t realise the right  solution to a healthy start for my first child. If I had discovered and pursue Child Nutrition long ago, I wouldn’t  have followed the wrong side of nurturing him.

Me and My Two Lovely Kids

In my world, motherhood is an adventure filled with ups and downs and yet rewarding. I’m not perfect but I strive to becoming more intentional and at the same time using my story and lesson to enlighten other moms including you reading this.

The idea behind So, You Are Now A Mom? was divinely conceived in September of 2017 as a platform and community for moms, moms-to-be and future moms to share ideas, information and knowledge about childcare, motherhood and parenting in general.

So, You Are Now A Mom? is a question every new mom is asked by family, friends and neighbours when she gives birth to their first child. After childbirth and christening… that is, when the euphoria and celebrations of the newly born baby slows down, from that moment on… the motherhood journey has already begun. And as you already know, motherhood doesn’t come with a prepared manual. From conception to delivery, every mom’s story is not the same. You learn in the process and get advice from other experienced moms.
