Another great book out from Chicken Soup for the Soul, Stay at Home Moms! It’s 101 inspirational stories for mothers about hard work and happy families. I really enjoyed this book, being a stay at home mom myself. They cover a wide range of topics like making the decision to stay at home, how to figure out how to work from home, learning all you need to make that change, like multi tasking, and being happy with your choice.
Being a stay at home mom now is not like the Peggy Bundy days of eating bonbons on the couch (not that it was ever like that) but it can be very hectic with so many after school activities, helping out at the school and outings, dealing with not only small children but feeling the need to enroll them in many classes or lots of outings etc. Moms, whether they stay home or work have a lot of stress put on them by the media, other moms etc. to be the perfect mom, it was really refreshing to read a book like this to see how others deal with this. It’s always fun to read a book that is so personalized – awesome gift idea for any stay at home mom for sure. And as always, nice quick stories that everyone can make the 2 minutes a day to read and enjoy. A nice little daily break.
