Do you ever find yourself trying to be SuperMom?
In the midst of trying to keep the house tidy, the family fed, helping with homework, doing that craft you saw on Pinterest, rushing the kids whatever extracurricular activity they have that day, and still working out so you look good for the husband, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s really important.
And then there’s all the “experts” out there in social media land adding even more pressure as they try to tell us what we should and should not be doing. As if we don’t suffer from the mom guilt enough!
If any of this sounds remotely familiar, than I have the book for you!
Moms, Monsters, Media & Margaritas was written by fellow blogger Angela Williams Glenn of the blog Time with A & N.
The book examines the perceptions and expectations of motherhood with regard to today’s digital world. The world of social media is shaping and influencing us in ways that moms of the past never dreamed!
We not only feel like as moms we need to be superwoman, but society and social media also makes us feel like we need to push that perfectionism on our children, that they should be reading by kindergarten, in several sports, or whatever other foolishness that seems to spread through the Internet.
Moms, Monsters, Media & Margaritas touches on all this and more. What I really love about this book is that you don’t have to read the book cover to cover. (Because, honestly, it’s tough to get to read when you’re a mom!) You can easily pick it up and choose any one of the 12 chapters to read in any order.
My favorite chapter?
I found myself laughing and nodding as I read chapter 7 “What I Didn’t Know about Motherhood.” I have to agree that as moms we all need those extra locks so we can use the bathroom alone!
Angela Williams Glenn was recently published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Multitasking Mom’s Survival Guide. Her blog is one that always makes me smile.
And she has a big heart.
