Book Description

Must. Have. Wine. It’s a modern moms’ mantra, no matter what type of day we’re having; when we’ve come to the end of our rope, had the best day ever, or simply just want to unwind.

Along with that glass of wine, we often find comfort in knowing other moms are going through the same things we are. Must. Have. Wine. A Toast to Motherhood, is a collection of relatable stories by everyday moms assuring that none of us are perfect and we’re all in this crazy race together.

If you’re looking for a reason to pour that glass of wine tonight, we’ve got 81 reasons you should!

Always feeling guilty about something you did or didn’t do? “Guilt Will Always Be There, Let Love Triumph” is the story for you! See Reason #4

Tired of your hubby putting the moves on you when all you need is another hour of sleep? Been there! You must read “Midnight Lovin’!” See Reason #58

Is the constant wailing from your colicky baby enough to make you want to lock yourself in the closet and bawl your eyes out? Read another mother’s colic survival story in “This Too Shall Pass.” See Reason #37

Think you’re the only mom who can’t brave the McDonald’s playland slide to save your toddler? You’ll laugh out loud when you read “I’m Not Lovin’ It!” See Reason #15

With savvy wit and a healthy dose of reality, "Must.Have.Wine. A Toast to Motherhood." takes you on the emotional journey we all experience as mothers, while gracefully offering advice and an aura of camaraderie.

Each chapter offers stories that complement the ups and downs of this wondrous and challenging role we’re all living:

Chapter 1 inspires—Let go of your mommy guilt and embrace your imperfections!

Chapter 2 amuses—Laugh out loud as you are reminded of the funnies from your own zany life with young children.

Chapter 3 encourages—In your darkest of days it’s comforting to know you will survive.

Chapter 4 delights—Giggle at the fun and often cute moments of motherhood.

Chapter 5 relieves—For those stressful and frustrating times…know that you’re not alone.

Chapter 6 indulges—Sweet tales remind us why we’re blessed to be moms.

Whether you’re headed to a baby shower, looking for a holiday gift, or buying for a friend’s birthday—Must.Have.Wine. makes the perfect gift for any mommy in your life: your sister, your best friend, or even…yourself.

Together, let’s raise our glasses to toast the laughter, the tears, and this zaniness we call motherhood.

About the Author

Katrina Epp lives in Rifle, CO with her husband and two children. She enjoys drinking wine with her girlfriends and movie nights with her family. She lives for those few silent, early a.m. hours where she can be hidden away in her office pursuing her true passion—writing. Leah Speer lives in Sandestin, Florida with her husband, two rambunctiously adorable sons and faithful dog. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys movies, playing golf, cooking, going out to eat with her girlfriends, and though you can often find her enjoying an ice cold Sam Adams, a nice glass of Chianti is her true delight.

Love this book! A collection of inspiring and funny stories to remind us, moms, that we are doing a great job and nobody's perfect! Reshreshing look on motherhood in this crazy overcompetitive world where we all sometimes get caught in a rat-race and forget to simply enjoy every day. Good job authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars a MUST HAVE for your parenting library... December 19, 2012
By J D
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just got this book in the mail yesterday and have almost finished reading it. It is really great and I can't imagine a mother reading this and not feeling comforted about herself and her parenting - I have! The authors really drive home the fact that we are all doing the best we can! What better way to celebrate that than indulging in some stories that make you laugh and warm your heart?

I can't pick a favorite story - I think because some are going to ring truer for me in different ways on different days based on what is happening with my family. I especially love the funny ones though and will go back to them over and over to help lift me up on my toughest days as a mommy. For example, if my son embarrasses me with a tantrum in a public place - they've got a story for that! Or those times when I'm so tired I can hardly think...they've got a story for that! And the days when I need to hear that I'm not the only mom that has resorted to saying things I wish I could take back...thank goodness they have some of those!

Buy this book - you won't regret it! It is a must have for your parenting library. It is not a "How To" is a "You are already doing great" kind of book and those are just as important! It will make a great gift for your girlfriends that are moms too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read for New Mothers January 26, 2013
By Morgan
Most, if not all, mothers, no matter how hard they've tried to prepare themselves, are no where near ready for what comes along with a new bundle of joy; we feel overwhelmed by every action, ignorant in every situation, and guilty over every decision. This book helps a new mommy realize that it's just a part of motherhood. Great anecdotes describe the normal, everyday lives of normal, everyday mothers to help lift up other mommies, showing them they're not alone in the crazy feelings and thoughts that overcome you throughout your journey as a mother. I LOVE this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic tribute to mothers! May 3, 2013
By SusieQ
As the mother of 4 young children, I have read my share of parenting books. This one is different! It talks about all the subjects that no one talks about even though we all experience them. It leaves you with a great feeling. You'll know that you are a successful mother after reading book because it emphasizes the fact that YOU are a great mom. I can't wait to read the next book.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect read for the mom on the go! February 7, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book had me laughing, crying, and wanting to read more! It is the perfect book for the busy mom because it is made up of short stories that you can read when you have a spare moment. This would be a great gift for a new mom. It validates all the moments when you feel like you might be the only one going through something and truly is a "toast to motherhood" and moms everywhere!

This book made me feel better about being a mom. It talks about the things I'm too embarrassed to admit in front of other moms. Good to know I'm not the only one.
