In this book we are able to see how much the family is like a true reality show full of laughs and uncomfortable moments, as well as the joy of being a part of some of your child's most memorable moments instead of just having to hear about them later.
There are Stay-at-Home Dads of course that get to enjoy the same benefits, but it is all work and all worthy of appreciation.
There is nothing like being a parent. I know this myself, and I don't have any children! I know it because of what I have seen my mother and grandmother do when the odds might seem stacked against them, and they are still able to persevere and make the impossible happen.
In this collection of stories you will see parts of yourself and your family and hopefully get the motivation you need to give the best of yourself to those you love and appreciate the sacrifices being made so you can grow up to be your best self.
Yes, this one was written for all of us to remember those who give so much and don't expect anything in return except the love that they give being reciprocated.
You will find stories about making the decision to stay at home, the power of friendship and sharing, learning to multi-task and much more. I find that being a stay-at-home mom can be very frustrating. At times I will feel separate from the rest of the world, alone, tired and just plain bored. It takes a lot to keep up with your child or children especially if you are around them 24/7. The stories in this book have made me feel that I am not alone and that even though I am having a bad day today, tomorrow is a new day and it could be wonderful!
