Mandy and I are excited to announce the Modern Moms May Book Club pick, The Gift Of The Happy Mother!!! It’s perfect for Mother’s Day and I can’t wait to dive in!
“Would you rather have a perfect mom, or a happy one?” This is the question that Rebecca Eanes couldn’t get out of her head. So she asked her school-age son, who didn’t miss a beat in responding: “A happy one.”
Thus began a journey of reflection and repair work, as Rebecca asked herself an even harder question: How can I rediscover everyday joy amid the chaos of schedules, homework, and housework—not to mention the guilt, comparisons, loneliness, fear, and overwhelm? In other words, how can I become a happy mom again?
