Mothering Jump Start

May 4th, 2012 in About Me

All my copies are gone, but please check out the book or buy it used online to do it with us!!


I am in the need of a mothering jump start because I am in a new stage of mothering. I decided after this past weekend that I am just going to need to stay home—I mean ALL THE TIME STAY HOME. Which is hard for me to do. I can’t go out on little field trips a few times a week, or even once a day. I can’t plan fun parties or big craft/art project days or even have big fun dinners for the family. For me to be able to be a nice mother and a nice wife until I have this baby, I am going to have to change things up to be very low key. Hanging out at the house, walking to the park down the street, and that is all. So things have changed quite a bit–I need a jump start–I need a pick me up right now.

My sweet neighbor let me borrow this book, A Mother’s Book of Secrets by Linda Eyre & Shawni Eyre Pothier. She even texted me to remind me to read it and it is coming at me at the perfect time I tell ya. Thank you sweet neighbor!

I wanted to invite 5 of my blog readers to study this book along with me and join me each Monday to share our notes, goals, and insights. If you are interested will you email me at inevergrewup at gmail dot com? I will send the first five of you a book (for free) within two days so you can catch up with me. 

But even if you don’t read it along with us…you might have already read the book (it’s a popular one) or you can join in on the conversations really without even reading the book. OR feel free to get yourself a copy and do it along with us. Every Monday we will meet back to discuss one of the sections (there are just five of them, and very short reads).

See you Monday!

    Okay sweet missy!! You will just have to learn to love the simple things in life. Maybe you will even enjoy going to the grocery store! Just imagine you are in a European market – you could try! You CAN learn how to take care of yourself. And I love this book.

    Just read the first section and already I am in love with this book. Yes most of the advice so far seems very simple—yet when you are in the thick of it you don’t really think about these simple things. The message that I took home the most was the need to simplify and to just simply ENJOY the moments of being a mother with yound crazt children. We have all heard it will be over before we know it but we need to remember to actually STOP and play, relax, and enjoy the moments of motherhood. This is what I will try to do this week!
