I am so glad this book was entitled MOMumental and not Mom-u-MENTAL! Often that is really how I feel, but this book reminds us moms that we are not losing our minds but are doing our best to raise our children.
As I read this book, I felt all the feelings of a mom such as guilt, joy, frustration, passion, and deep love. Often, I can run through these emotions all within an hour when I am trying to take care of my 2 little ones. I am relieved to know that I am not alone in my many diverse feelings of being a mother.
My favorite line from this book is "use common sense when you consider duplicating something you read about in a parenting book. Seriously." Now stop and think about that for a minute. This is a parenting book, and the author is telling the reader to use common sense when duplicaiton her advice.
My other favorite line is one I hope I remember when my kids are not obeying like I want. "Perfect submission from my kids isn't my goal as a mother." That still makes me stop and consider what I am doing as a parent and what I truly want from my children as I raise them.
I received this book from Net Gallery for free in exchange for my review which I freely give.
