Be the Mom: Overcome Attitude Traps and Enjoy Your Kids explores and validates the life of a mom who makes her family a priority and introduces the reader to seven Mom Traps that may be preventing them from a full, joy-filled life.
Celebrating the joyous art of being a mother, MOMumental offers an inspiring, honest, and infectiously humorous look at the perils and pleasures of raising a family in the real world. Once a devout believer in the myth of the perfect mother, author Jennifer Grant now has a more realistic yet still upbeat view of parenting and families. Instead of focusing on creating a conflict-free home, raising picture-perfect kids, and being an ideal mother, Grant offers a wiser and more down-to-earth way to love your children that makes room for mistakes and imperfections. She says, “I share stories about family life and how I’ve come to appreciate the mess of it. I am grateful for my own happy, idiosyncratic, and imperfect family.”
MOMumental is one mother’s account of the unpredictable, creative, sometimes hilarious, and always rewarding process of raising a family. It’s filled with funny and poignant stories from her everyday life a life that mothers everywhere can identify with.
