I'm reading several books right now so I chose to feature the non-fiction book, "Calm Mama, Happy  Baby" by Derek O'Neill and Jennifer Waldburger. This is from 56% in the ebook.

Not every mom who prefers to keep to herself is struggling, mind you; we're referring to the idea that handling every aspect of motherhood on your own is some sort of ideal picture, and whoever paints the picture with the most color wins.


  1. That's a great quote...I can totally relate! I was a single mom with my older daughter. When I had my younger daughter, I had a really difficult time letting my boyfriend help, it was hard for me.

    1. So far the authors seem to know what they're talking about, which is reassuring.

  2. As a mom, good luck keeping it all to yourself. Eventually you have to give in and get help from someone, somewhere... whether it's your boyfriend like above, your own parent, a sister, or even a friend.... we all need somebody sometimes. Do everything on your own and you'll be burnt out faster than a light bulb.
    Happy weekend!

  3. I recall having to find a support system of other moms to get me through...we all need one!

    Thanks for sharing...and here's MY FRIDAY MEMES POST

    1. It must be incredibly difficult for mothers without a support system.

  4. This sounds like good, solid, common sense advice. I hope the book is helpful to you.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: A GOOD HOME.

    1. I'm hoping it will help me in my work. A lot of does seem to be common sense.

  5. Very interesting quote. Not sure I quite get it out of context, but it got my attention!
