It's been rainy here in vactionland for the past few days--which has allowed me to dig into some books I've been meaning to review. The Ultimate Mom: Uplifting Stories, Endearing Photos, and the Best Experts' Tips on the Toughest Job You'll Ever Love (Ultimate Series) is a collection of essays on motherhood--always a good topic for mom entertainment.
I love finding out how other moms builttheir families and how they stay sane and connected with themselves, their kids and their husbands. For example, Andrea Marcus wrote a piece called It's Chestnuts. Thegist was to loose yourself in the moment with your kids and reconnect to the joys youexperienced as a child. On a more serious note their are tips for Momtrepeneurs from PatriciaCobe and EllenParlapaino (tip: never take your laptop to bed--oops, I've done that).
These bite-sized essays are sweet and instructive-- easy to pick up and tackle in small amounts of free time--perfect for the busy mom who needs an occasional dose of inspiration and laughter. My one criticism: The photos are cheesy and really not necessary. Buy The Ultimate Mom on Amazon $7.98.
