From the funny to the bizarre, author and speaker uses humor to shine light on most important job in the world – motherhood
I’ve read a few “mommy” books before. I actually really enjoy them. It makes me feel like I’m not alone in all my craziness! Sometimes as mom’s we forget there is life outside of our chaotic house. It is nice to be reminded once in a while that while we may feel alone, others are going through the exact same things!
After having three children within 26 months (none are twins), Dallas Louis’ life has been a non-stop circus. From nearly getting kicked out of Disneyland after her youngest tackled Cinderella, to being on a first name basis with her family orthopedic surgeon, Louis’ children and home life are a constant source of material
In The Mommy Diaries: How I’m Surviving Parenting Without Killing Anyone, author Dallas Louis does a great job of making you feel right there in her crazy house! I only have 2 kids and mine are 3 years apart so I can only imagine how crazy life would be with 3 tiny ones at one time!
We’ve all had those moments that make us want to lock ourself in the bathroom and cry or just wish we were invisible after our little one has said something not so nice, Author Dallas Louis was brave enough to put all those moments in writing! I know I have plenty of stories I could share myself but I have tried my best to block those out of my memory!
Author Dallas Louis takes your through her life with 3 little ones and how the struggles change as they get older. She has experienced many illnesses, a few broken bones, not so good notes from school, and plenty more in her years as a mom but she is here to tell you that you to can survive!
One of the big things she says to remember is your relationship with your husband. Sometimes in our busy day to day tasks we forget that we need to take care of the marriage in order to be good parents to our children. She shares how she and her husband managed to make time for each other and always remembered that to be good parents you also need to be good spouses.
I really liked the end of the book, she shares where she gets the strength to get through her days and it is the same place I find my strength. I don’t wanna give away the best part of the book so you will need to see for yourself!
While it seems on some days I think that being a mom is a thankless job, I think most would agree they wouldn’t change it for the world! On those rough days though, grab The Mommy Diaries and relax a little knowing that millions of others are going through the same thing!
We’ll be sharing some of Dallas Louis’s Mommy Moments throughout the giveaway, so stay tuned!
