Oh my goodness friends, this book was such a blessing ( #Soblessed ha ) to read! I’m so thankful that one of you recommended it and the rest of you wanted to join in. I personally love that not all of you are Mom’s so hearing your side of things was super interesting and I enjoy hearing your feedback
Synopsis : From the creator of The Honest Toddler comes a fiction debut sure to be a must-listen for moms everywhere. T here are good moms and bad moms – and then there are hot-mess moms. Introducing Ashley Keller, career girl turned stay-at-home mom who’s trying to navigate the world of Pinterest-perfect, Facebook-fantastic, and Instagram-impressive mommies but failing miserably.
Thoughts: Right from the first few pages, I literally was laughing out loud while reading this novel as it wasn’t just a book to read for this month but gave me such a great escape of the chaos that surrounds me as a work at home Mom. You don’t feel alone at all when you read this book and I know that many of us who are working from home or being a stay at home Mom truly feel alone at times. Bunmi does such a great job at creating and crafting what we all really think of as being a Mom, what our expectations are and what reality is. Her fictional character speaks to all of us.
One thought that really resonated me was when Ashely was talking about being a parent is truly a 24/7 job. We don’t get breaks as a stay at home parent. Our spouses can come home at after work, take their shoes off and relax for a few minutes. We don’t get that as we often juggle chores of laundry, cleaning, picking up, organizing, making sure the kids homework is done, bath time, cooking dinner/breakfast/lunch, grocery shopping, organizing play dates or various activities for our kids… and somehow on a given day make about 5 minutes for ourselves.
