This is one of those books that you read once ... and then continually go back to. It is a perfect pick-me-up when things aren't going as well as you'd hope, a great way to celebrate when things are. Love this book and highly recommend it to all moms and moms-to-be. The writing is excellent and the stories, very inspiring!

I wish I had been given this book when I became a new mom. It gives you so many different essays from moms that there will be one to relate too. As a Momoir Project fan--this is a great book to re-read over thae next many many years.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ann Douglas on Aug. 16 2007
Format: Hardcover
If you swear you haven't been able to finish a sentence, let alone complete a conversation, in years, here's a book that gives you the lowdown on what your mom friends have been trying to tell you between interruptions.

The essays in this book are organized around five key themes -- ambition, anxiety, guilt, devotion, and redemption -- and deal with situations as varied as postpartum depression, mom friendships, becoming your own father (yes father, not mother), resenting the nanny, knowing when your family is finished, and the perils of potties as hats.

To create this collection, CBC producer Cori Howard, the book's editor, solicited contributions from both well-known and not-so-well-known Canadian mothers: novelists, journalists, newspaper and magazine editors, singer/songwriters, broadcasters, bloggers (including Toronto blogger MUBAR -- Mothered Up Beyond All Recognition), and others. The result is an honest and memorable collection of outtakes from the lives of Canadian moms.

I often referred to my daytime job as a job of interruptions....then I became a first time mom....and let's just say that even though it was planned and I felt good about it...I was still feeling blindsided. The title of the book caught my eye. Life is now a series if interruptions and unfinished thoughts. This book tells it like it is and offers reassurance and hope. It is thoughtfully organized and very readable. Great personal memoirs, realistic portrayals of the often tormenting feelings of motherhood as one adjusts to the new realities of life.

By Lauren on Dec 13 2010
Format: Hardcover
I started reading this book expecting to hear a lot of familiar stories about the trials of raising a child, but as I made my way through the wonderfully varied essays, I found myself gripped by the richness of these women's collective experiences. I laughed, cried and sighed in relief as I realised that my own trials were pleasantly mundane by comparison. A thoroughly enjoyable and surprising read for any mother - or father.

I read this book a few years ago when I had my twin boys and it resonated far more with me than a medical book for new moms. It made me laugh and contextualize my situation. Moms speaking to moms is a far better way to approach understanding motherhood and Cori's book captures the full range of what happens to you when you embark on this journey. I attended one of her mini-workshops and now subscribe to her e-newsletters as well. brenda
