My Thoughts:

I have been reading Chicken Soup for the Soul books for years, but never had the opportunity to read one dedicated to parenthood until now.  And, now with 2 1/2 years of parenting under my belt, while still learn the ropes each day, I could take heart with each of the 101 inspirational and heartwarming stories that make up this recent release.  As you know, parenting is not easy, and we all go through ups and down, and question how well we are at being at parent.  For me, I find comfort in mommy groups I am apart of, as I get to bounce things off of others who have older children, as well as share advice and how worked for me, with new moms.

With parenting comes highs and lows, child's firsts and even moments you wish you could forget.  But, through it all, parenthood is one (if not) of the best things that can happen to you.  I know for me, it was one of my lifelong dreams, and I am enjoying every minute of it.

And, with Mother's Day only 16 days away, why not pick up a copy of this new Chicken Soup for the Soul book for yourself, or to share with your Mom?  It also makes for a great gift idea for new and expectant parents.  :-)

Happy Mother's Day!!!
