We used to not have TV. No, it’s not that we did not own a television set. It was just that we did not have cable television or even a good old antenna reception signal in the old condo. A month or so after I had the baby, Ryan decided that it would be nice to have cable television so that I would not be so bored at home taking care of the baby or that I would be able to watch movies on HBO while the baby slept. Actually I think he just really wanted to watch basketball and UFC.
I do not really watch television. I lost the habit when I moved to El Nido in 2005 and never really got it back when I moved back to Manila. I probably own five hundred DVDs though.
When we first got the cable television, I would just flip through channel after channel totally uninterested. Until one afternoon, I found myself watching Gladys Reyes Sommereux in some show I did not know about talking to mothers and talking about all kinds of mommyhood. I had so much fun. I did not really know the show or even the schedule. For a month I just found myself watching the show at odd hours and totally enjoying it. Until they announced they had a facebook page and only then did I get the actual sched.
MOMents has got to be my favorite show as of the moment. In fact, I love it so much that I named one of my blog categories after it.
I remember watching the episode with Dawn Zulueta and just laughing away and identifying with everything Dawn, as an experienced expectant mother was saying. She was just so OC about everything and she was just really cute! She had everything ready. She probably had like five hospital bags! One for her, another for the baby, another for her husband, another for the visitors and her own beddings too! She had plastic plates, cups, spoons and forks for the would-be visitors she said! It was all too cute. She showed us her baby scrapbooks and diaries too and I thought, “Now why didn’t I think of that?” and then Dawn said, “I didn’t have this too for when I had my son and I regret it..” or something to that effect. Oh, the benefits of being a non-first timer. You know what to expect.
And then she had to show us the baby stuff she had for her to be born-daughter and she had these! I remember being so enviousssss!! Hahaha. I was like, “Where did she get those?! I want to get some too!” I had wanted to scour the malls to get my baby her own funky onesies because they were just so hard to resist. Though I already did that before I had the baby and know for a fact that there are no such funky onesies in the mall. I did get to find out where such funky onesies can be bought – courtesy of Facebook. (I do love clicking on the Facebook ads.) Though I have yet to decide whether or not to get one of those uber-cute onesies or tees because they are quite expensive. If you want to see more of them super duper lovable onesies and tees, click here. I wish I can afford them though. 🙁
Lately, I have not been able to watch television much, not even my most favorite show as of the moment but I am glad that they won the award. They sure deserve it. Kudos to MOMents on Net-25. I hope there are more shows like this out there too. Congratulations for a fun, educational and award-winning show! You are and having been doing such a wonderful job for us mothers, first-timers or not, out there. For that, thank you very much Gladys and the staff!
