Book Overview

For every woman who's passed off store-bought cakes as her own at the school bake sale comes an honest look at motherhood. In an ideal world, mothers would have time to hand-sew their kids' costumes for the school play, prepare all-organic meals, and volunteer in the classroom at the drop of a hat. In reality, most moms have to settle for plopping their little ones in front of SpongeBob so that they can prepare yet another chicken nugget-based dinner,...

You're not alone!

Just to know that I, a mother who loves her kids, but is not a perfect person, am not alone in my quest to just "break even" a a "good enough mom" is refreshing. It seems like there are so many stories where mothers are either disgustingly (and not to mention, unrealistically) adept or on the other hand, completly incapable. I was so greatful to finally have someone with whom I can connect!

A delightful look at motherhood!

I absolutely loved this book! It is so nice to know that even celebrity moms struggle with many of the same trials that the rest of us face daily. In a society where women are expected to be "SUPER WOMEN," Rene reassures us that it's okay to be human! As I read the book, I found myself laughing out loud - a must-read for the overworked mother! I am recommending this book to all of my "mommy" friends.

Absolutely loved it!

What a delightful and encouraging read! It makes me breathe a sigh of relief to know it is okay and "normal" to not have perfect order in all facets of a modern day mom's life! I have now bought this book for all of my pregnant girlfriends!

What a FUN book!!

This book is a wonderful ray of hope to mothers, and even fathers, who struggle through the day, occasionally worrying about how they measure up as a parent. As if they don't have enough to worry about already! The most wonderful thing about this book is the humor. (Remember Erma Bombeck, anyone?) Blessed be the author who can laugh at herself......and still hold her head up high! A great read for anyone who has been/is/may become a parent!

Great Book!

I bought this as a gift for my best friend who is a new mommy-to-be. What a great idea for a book! There is so much pressure out there for women to be perfect-the perfect employee, the perfect wife, the perfect daughter, the perfect friend, and the perfect mother. This book explains that it's ok to have your own style. Be sure and read the last chapter!
