Failing As a Parent: And Other Thoughts from a (Slightly) Overwhelmed Mom of Two Small Boys (Good Mom Book 3)

by Shelley Wenger

For anyone who has had children, ever, then you know the challenges of raising them, the doubts you experience and the frustrating moments when they either don’t listen to you, or simply want your undivided attention when you have something more pressing to do.

It’s a natural part of a period in your life, when you will most likely question your sanity and think that you are a failure. But the reality is usually far removed from that.

In Failing as a Parent: And Other Thoughts from a (Slightly) Overwhelmed Mom of Two Small Boys, you will find a collection of thoughts on raising children, many of them hurriedly scribbled down in a passing moment of calm, which you will probably be able to relate to.

Things like keeping your house clean, sibling rivalry, judging other parents and dealing with insecurities are all dealt with using a mixture of humor and experience, with a bit of exasperation thrown in.

Failing as a Parent isn’t designed to be a self-help book, it doesn’t provide you with the answers, or try to tell where you’ve gone wrong, but it should brighten your day, make you smile and hopefully help you realize that none of us are perfect.

The Self Care Journey : Finding time for you in the chaos of motherhood.

by Becky Miller

As a busy mom, it is easy to put yourself last, which hurts your ability to be the best you that you can be. Reclaim your “Me Time” with The Self Care Journey. You will be inspired to spend at least 5 minutes a day doing something that will bring you back to who you are outside of mom.

This 30 day journey is filled with quick & meaningful self-care ideas for you, and will guide you day by day. Each day of the journey you have new journal questions to help you reflect on how your self-care is going. Every 10 days you will have a few extra journal questions to help you plan for the next 10 day block and setting your goals.

Before you know it, you will be back to taking regular time for yourself and feeling connected to the person you were before becoming a mother.

Once becoming a mother, Becky found that there is a certain amount of pressure to be completely selfless all the time, which is unreasonable. Yes, being a mother is a selfless calling, but it isn’t a reason to ignore your every need. In order to be the best possible mother, it is important to make sure your needs are also met.
