Chicken Soup for the Soul The Multitasking Mom's Survival Guide for Mothers Who Do It All Review and #Giveaway

       There is no harder job in the world than being a parent yet nothing is more rewarding.  There are no manuals or how to's as to being the best parent out there.  There are also no guidelines as to how to keep sane while raising your children and still living your own life.  I am definitely not a perfect parent nor is my husband but we try.

         One of the things we try to do constantly is laugh at ourselves for the mistakes we make and in turn learn from them.  One of the hardest things I've ever had to overcome is how drastically my life changed when my first son was born.  I have actually been diagnosed with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and have always been quite the workaholic.  This has left me with little time in the past for scheduling another (little) person's needs into the mix.

        Chicken Soup for the Soul The Multitasking Mom's Survival Guide for Mothers Who Do It All has "101 Inspiring and Amusing Stories for Mothers Who Do It All.  Moms are the busiest people in the world! They juggle kids, husbands, jobs, housework, and more. This collection will inspire and entertain masters of multitasking with its 101 stories from busy moms like them. Filled with words of wisdom, lessons learned, funny moments and juggling success, this book will brighten any mother's day."

        I appreciate the fact that this book teaches me that I am not alone in these struggles and that there are ways to help juggle everything without feeling like a mad woman.  I feel like it helped me justify the importance of me time as well as making the most out of each moment along the way with my kids.  No one is really going to die if there is a mess in my house for a day or the laundry goes undone.  Prioritizing is key as well as remembering to just plain do what makes me happy....spending time with my kids whenever I can.
