Book review: I Was a Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids: Reinventing Modern Motherhood

The title of this book caught my eye as I was wandering slowly and kid-less through Target.  I picked it up and read the first paragraph and cried.  I'd had *that* day as a stay-at-home mom and even a few sentences of understanding were enough to reduce me to tears.  Well, that and I was 6 months pregnant.

I loved this book for the refreshing honesty the writers used.  As a former career woman turned mom, I felt by reading the words of these two women, I was immediately their friend; I was in the club.  I found myself reading each sentence faster and faster, hoping to find an answer hidden in the pages.  Sometime after my feet went numb from standing too long in one place, I decided to purchase the book.

I thought then that I would like to bring the same feeling to my readers - root them to the spot as soon as they began reading and only bring them back to reality when nature called.
