It makes an ideal gift for new moms and mothers of young children. The book includes:

This book was really fun for me to read because I have 3 kids 4 and under, so I was able to relate to a lot of these women’s stories. I like how the stories are short and under categories. I felt like I was sitting with a group of friends and everyone was sharing their own experiences. And after each section was a space for me to write my own experience! The stories are very diverse and I really feel it grasps all the different emotions new mothers can feel. I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one to feel a certain way sometimes. Overall the book is very encouraging and makes you think about yourself and your life and how you have changed as a person, but what still makes you special. This is a perfect gift idea for a new mother.
