Format: Hardcover
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.

I received this book from my sister for my birthday. I read it front to back in three days, during my commute to work and back every day. I have since gone back into the book to re-read a few of the stories because they hit such an emotional place that I could relate to. This compilation is unbelievably written. The stories are so real and its comforting to know that what I am going through as a Mother is somewhat the same as what other Mothers are also going through.

A MUST READ for all Moms today. Amazing.

Stories from those unafraid to write the truth and what exactly their experiences are in life. Alison Kelly's humour causes the reader to clearly identify. It was great to read the essays of some famous Canadian women, unashamed to poke a little fun at themselves, such as Kreviazuk, Moss, Deol, & McKay. Some really describe exactly what it is like being a career-mom in this day & age. Others bring a high level of pessimism to motherhood, but their personal realities are not ones of 24/7 joy. Any book that is as honest as this deserves the credit it has received. Recommended for any mother, in any capacity - bio, step & adoptive. An excellent read.

My husband got this book from the library as something I might want to read. I stopped reading another book I was in the middle of, and couldn't get enough of this book. It's journeying back to the early days of motherhood (our daughter is now almost 2 yrs old) and the conflicting feelings that went with it--this time articulated to the last detail by strangers. I could totally relate to the writings of these women, in a way I couldn't explain to my dearest friends who had not gone thru the experience.
What a treasure. Highly recommended to moms and moms-to-be.

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!

This book was just what I needed when I needed it. I needed to know other women felt as I did, that they too had misgivings and massive ups and downs. It is an honest look at many Mothers and their stories, and it really connected me to other Moms. This is a great present for new Moms...they need to know they are not alone.
