The Velveteen Mommy
Laughter and Tears From the Toy Box YearsBook - 2005
Jenn Doucette offers much-needed encouragement for moms experiencing the parenting stress of the toy-box years. Lighten your load with laughter. As a stay-at-home mom, Jenn Doucette enjoys the smallest excuse to get away from her beloved duties, even for an hour. She calls it "running away from home to find my marbles." Over time, the everyday tension builds and the inevitable mommy mania rears its ugly head. But just about the time she threatens to superglue her kids' shoes to their perpetually sockless feet, she gets booted out of the house to find her marbles-maybe to meet a friend at a coffee shop, browse at her favorite bookstore, or find restoration at a church retreat. Whether you're a mom of toddlers or teens, you can probably identify. If you need a little change of pace, some comforting conversation, a sympathetic shoulder for a tear or two, or lots of laughter to lighten your load, you'll find it all within the covers of this book. The Velveteen Mommy can help every mother become real again.
