Being a mother is not easy. Some days I cry because I feel like such a failure.
I recently read a complimentary copy of the below-mentioned book about chaotic motherhood. While the author's spiritual beliefs and practices are not the same as mine, I have found similarities in our lives as moms. Hearing her stories about chaotic days and a cluttered front yard helped me feel more at peace with the less-than-perfect mothering I am doing these days. I also related to her experiences of having a child later in life as I had my last child at the age of 36. Somedays I feel like his grandmother more than his momma.
The author provided a lot of hugs and wisdom through her writing. I think I really would enjoy sitting down in her living room visiting while the kiddos played.
