Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms Review and Giveaway


My two boys turned 4 and 7 this year, making me ask myself where did the time go? Overall, I loved being pregnant (except for the occasional nausea and heartburn). I enjoyed feeling my boys kick inside and anticipating their arrival. Granted, I was very lucky to have delivered my boys so quickly. My labor for my oldest was about 2 hours and my second was about 4 hours. When I see newborns, I think I could do it all over again.

Recently, I received Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms. And while, I am not a new mom, I still enjoy reading the stories and reminiscing about my own experiences. Here is a synopsis of the book:

Becoming a new mom is the most amazing event. This book celebrates the physical, emotional, and spiritual experience of having a child and creating a family. New and expectant moms will delight in these heartwarming, insightful, and humorous stories about raising babies and toddlers. This book is full of stories by other moms sharing the wonders of early motherhood, from waiting for the baby, whether through pregnancy, adoption, or surrogacy, to those early weeks and first few years, and everything in between!

I think any mom would really enjoy this book. Being a mom is not always easy, but it is so worth every minute. I thank God for providing me with two beautiful, healthy boys. I have enjoyed reading the inspirational stories in this newest Chicken Soup for the Soul book. Moms will relate to the stories of new motherhood, the adventures of breastfeeding, sleep deprived nights, and the joys of adding a second child.

This would make a great gift for Mother's Day.
