Does your car CD collection range from the best of rock-n-roll classics to the best of Barney? Does your idea of a good dinner out mean crayons and paper placemats for all? Can hearing the words “I love you, Mommy” make your whole day? Then chances are good that you are not only a mother of a preschooler (or soon-to-be one), but that you are in need of some laughter, inspiration, and camaraderie from other women who’ve been there.

Let’s face it: Our little bundles of joy and boundless energy don’t come with instructions, and every mom undoubtedly thinks at one time or another: “Am I doing this right?!” In this uplifting collection, you’ll find true stories about the day-to-day minutiae and miracles of being the mom to a preschooler: from finding peace and purpose in what can seem (and look!) like chaos to solving sibling rivalry and celebrating sibling revelry; from the sorrow of letting go to enjoying some personal independence as your “big kid” goes off to school. Included are stories from well-known MOPS speakers, Lisa Moffitt and Rochelle Nelson.
