Review: You Know You're A Mom by:Harry H. Harrison Jr.

 You Know You're a Mom: A Book for Moms Who Spend Saturdays at the Soccer Field Instead of the Spa
About the Book:
For every woman who has posted 800 pictures of her baby on Instagram.


One day that little plus sign appears on the stick, and you realize your life is about to change forever—you’re going to be a mom! Whether you’re still in the days of 2am feedings and loads of dirty diapers, or you’ve made it to that bittersweet moment of their college graduation, this book will make you laugh out loud with its insightful and funny observations about motherhood.  From the days when you read every parenting book ever written—while your husband plays golf—to the hours you spent polishing up your adult child’s resume, parenting is a roller coaster. Harry H. Harrison Jr. makes it just a little easier with his trademark humor and truisms as you learn that your job as a mom is the most important one you’ll ever have.


My Review:
 I became a mom for the very first time 20 years ago. I would go on to have several more babies and lose a couple, as well. Nothing and I mean nothing can ever take the place of my children and what they mean to me. To me, they are the reason I'm even on this earth. I love them more than anything ever would or could. Each day with them is another day closer to living without them. I tell them all the time you are being raised just to be released. That's our job! To raise you into fine, upstanding people to be released into the world.

 The author takes some humor with a dose of reality and gives us a perfect book for this mothers day. It is such the perfect book for a gift to a mother whether it be a first time mom or a veteran mother. The book is filled with little snippets that remind you of all the joys and sadly all the truths that aren't so much fun. Great gift idea!
