Review

"I think every mother can relate to these feelings. I loved the author's humor and thought provoking perspective!" reader review (Debanair) --Barnes & Noble

From the Author

An avid reader, I believe we have much to learn about the world, and ourselves, through explorations of the written word. Books are the threads of timeless human connection, and I strive, at least in some small way, to touch others through my writing. This book collection started before I ever managed to concieve my first child (a task that took five years) and has grown along side of my children. From pregnancy to the later child-rearing girls, I've offered up my thoughts and feelings on being a young, contemporary woman with children. I haven't shied away from a thought because of what people might think, and as such I didn't want to edit the essays contained here very much, for fear of whitewashing my original intentions. I do hope you find something helpful, or comforting in this collection. Being a mother may be packed full of playmates and such, but most mothers edit their thoughts and feeling for fear of being a "bad" mom. That is why I wrote this book as honestly as possible, so that readers could see they are not alone!

More About the Author

An avid reader, I believe we have much to learn about the world, and ourselves, through explorations of the written word. Books are the threads of timeless human connection, and I strive, at least in some small way, to touch others through my writing.

Okay, enough of the heavy stuff. Let's get a little personal. I have worn many hats through my thirty-some years of living (and yes, that's as specific on my age as I'll get!) from C.N.A, to Animal ER Nurse, then from Accountant to a Graphic Designer, and now I've got a nice little vocation going as a photographer ( see www.karenfowlerphotography.com) - but the one thing I've always been is a writer. Blogs, essays, articles, poems, short stories- you name it, and I've been compelled to write it, or type it as the case may be.

On a more personal note, I've lived on the Eastern Shore of Virginia for most of my life, though I did spend the first six years of my married life as transplant to my husband's hometown of Spartanburg, South Carolina. And yes, I did come back with a southern accent! And two tow-headed babies, but I digress.

For fun, I'll give you a few little known facts about me before returning to our regularly scheduled programming!

1. As a teen, I rode horses and showed competitively. My horse was an Arabian named Clyde (as in Clyde the camel) and he had an addiction to Starlight mints (the red and white minty things) and cherry lifesavers.

2. My sister calls me a vampire, and not because I'll read anything with fangs in it. I normally stay up half the night, despite having to get up at the same time in the morning as regular people. Hence why I'm not usually in the mood to talk to anyone until I've at been up at least two hours.

3. I'm clumsy. I spent at least one chunk of time every year through middle and high school on crutches or wearing a cast.

4. I have an absurdly weird fear of crickets. Seriously. And me children delight in chasing me around with their crispy carcasses.

That's enough for now... Perhaps I'll share more later!

Format: Kindle Edition
Reflections on Motherhood by Karen Fowler was not your typical "feel good" book. It was a refreshing change from the saccharin sweet stories of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and others. Ms. Fowler chose selections that captured the true essence of motherhood. From the story of the mother who believed that we all gave up our dreams when we had children to the mother whose favorite room in the house had become the bathroom because it was only there that she could escape for a few minutes of solitude, I think any mother can relate.

I experienced many different emotions while reading this book. For example, I laughed when I read "Why I Write in the Bathtub What I Create in the Bed" and nearly cried while reading "My Son, My Firstborn." A must read for anyone who has ever experienced motherhood.
