Encouraging and amusing support for moms...  Mar 30, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. About 75% of the time I could swear the author was talking about my kids. Also, rather than sounding like the "expert" all the time, the author speaks more "mom to mom," which makes the book feel more like peer support to help busy moms cope, than a book written to make you feel like you could do more stuff to be a good mom. Is that refreshing, or what?

I liked how the author often used herself as an example and wasn't afraid to admit her flaws. It made her very approachable as a paperback mentor, and it made me want to keep reading the book. It is truly funny, witty, and downright silly at times. I have to say I also learned quite a bit from this book in addition to being encouraged. Her anecdotes will make you smile and her examples of her own flubbing up will make you want to keep on keeping one (while taking better care of yourself, of course.) I highly recommend this book for all moms whether they are at home full time or out in the paid workforce.
 
Stash this one in your purse!  Mar 23, 2007
This is a great little book to tuck into your purse for sneaking in a few pages during carpool! Some pages are good for quiet reflection, others will make you laugh out loud. It's refreshing to spend time with a mom who really *gets* motherhood.
 
Refreshingly humorous!  Mar 20, 2007
Jenn Doucette has the ability to turn every day life situations, which could be devastating, into humorous stops along the Mommy path. Each chapter drew me in more, and by the end, I was wishing it wouldn't end. Jenn inorporates her belief in Jesus Christ into her life and her storytelling, which gives the book substance, and gives the reader hope for their own situations. Great format with short sections, and discussion questions at the end of each chapter, which although not necessary, would be fun to do with a friend or a group. "Tank Toppers" encourage you to act on what you've read. The short devotionals (Take a Brake) encourage you to personalize the chapter. It's perfect for busy Moms.
 
For all mothers  Mar 20, 2007
If you are constantly on the run, overwhelmed by children's needs, wants, and gets, then you need to pick up a copy of Mama Said There'd Be Days Like This. It's a completely fun book to teach you how to:

-- Set boundaries and achieve freedom
-- Choose contentment
-- Carve out time to spend with friends
-- Get a grip on emotions
-- Find time--even five minutes--to be alone

Finding alone time is the most difficult for me to manage and I hope to give some of the author's ideas a try. While some of her ideas won't work for every family, some might.

Each chapter is short and easily read and ends with a discussion guide with four or five questions and lines for ease of answering. Some of the questions are really fun, and others require some thought.

If you are overwhelmed with your needy family, then pick up a copy of Mama Said There'd Be Days Like This and try to follow some of the suggestions to make time to get away with your girlfriends, husband, or by yourself.

Armchair Interviews says: This is a book that mothers of children (of any age) should not miss reading.
 
A Quick Pick Me Up For Moms With No Time  Mar 13, 2007
If you're a mom that loves to read, but finds herself saying, "I never have time," then this book is for you. The chapters are brief and include small sections that are ideal for reading while waiting for school to let out or soccer practice to end. A quick but thoughtful read that is funny yet sincere, "Mama Said There'd Be Days Like This" will touch your heart and your funny bone.
