From the Publisher
In her reassuring and hilarious report on being a mother in today's hectic world, Linda honestly describes not only the vital importance and magnificent moments of motherhood, but also those days when mothers feel they are living in a Roadrunner cartoon that never ends. She shares her own experiences with managing unmanageable schedules, coping with mealtime chaos, trying to find time for herself, and the sometimes desperate measures and compromises that are necessary to get it all done (and even then, not always). Whether offering advice on streamlining your life, coping with the martyr syndrome, or ignoring the outrageous demands of toddlers and teens with serenity and grace (or not), Linda Eyre speaks with the voice of experience.

I ordered this book because I was so disappointed by a new 2006 published book by a mother of 10. Someone in the reviews suggested this book and I can only say that it is sooooooooo worth it's money.
I have 4 children myself and could relate to this mom of 9! She never talked down to the reader and gave great and explicit examples of the "how to". For example: PATIENCE. I loved her chapter on this one. What mom doesn't need patience? She explained that patience is something that needs to be practiced, just like learning to play the piano. She even listed ways to prepare ourselves for the chaos of the day (that will always occur) in order not to jeapordize our calm. In other words, she suggests that we plan and even visualize problems and chaos so that we won't be surprised and unprepared.
This book is 5 stars!!!!!!!!!
