Download and read online Mother s Guide to the Meaning of Life in PDF and EPUB Bestselling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal's warm and hilarious guide to motherhood "Mother" may be the most underappreciated job title of all time, as any woman who has raised children can confirm. Amy Krouse Rosenthal, proud mother of three, can certainly attest to that fact, which is why she has chosen to compile a "scrapbook" of the kinds of things any disheartened or overwhelmed mother needs to hear. She provides encouragement for women who want to start families but are afraid to, and support for women who already have families and sometimes wish they'd never started. With Rosenthal's signature humor mixed with plenty of wisdom and a good dose of reassurance, she reminds moms that it's ok if their kids don't like them all the time, that every mom fantasizes about running away, and that moms should take joy in the things they can do better than their kids can--important things, like drawing a piece of toast. Moms will laugh out loud at Rosenthal's descriptions of chaotic, exhausting, hilarious scenes all moms know too well, and ultimately feel the warmth, joy, and purpose that makes mothering the rewarding job it is. The handy format makes this book perfect for picking up between warming bottle fluid, doing laundry, and putting away toys. Rosenthal's advice will ring true to mothers (and mothers-to-be) of all ages.
