Funny & frank, for those who aren't June Cleaver!

Would you listen to Mommy Memoirs again? Why?

I LOVE Mommy Memoirs! There's so much pressure on women to be all and do all. This book shows that others are experiencing the same juggling act... and surviving, even thriving! The chapters were short and sweet. Perfect for my busy schedule. Full of humor, this book made dishwashing and vacuuming go faster!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mommy Memoirs?

"Nurse Nasty" had me in hysterical tears! I love that this book isn't just about pregnancy or toddlers. It spans all of the ages and stages.

What does Misty of Echoing Praise bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her "performance" feels more like I'm listening to my best friend! I love her casual approach, and subtle laughter. You can hear her smiles! Perfect narrator for this audiobook!

Any additional comments?

Great gift for a new mom, baby shower, or Mother's Day!
