I am a mom of two little boys, and have had my share of humiliation, gross, exhaustion, awe and excitement when it comes to motherhood. Reading this book reminded me of all the moments I've experienced and how I've managed to get through and tough it out-my boys are ages six and three and they have surely given me some priceless moments (both the good and the ugly)!
One of my favorite stories in the book was actually the first shared, entitled "Got Milk." I won't go into detail, but I am pretty sure all nursing moms, both past and present, will find themselves able to relate. *wink wink* When your baby is hungry, you gotta do what you gotta do...even if that means just "go with the flow" when the unexpected occurs!
I love that the author shares her own personal experiences as well. It gives the book an extra special personal touch. Honesty, I think the idea of this book is genius. Pulling together "the best of the best" is a beautiful way to honor the club that is motherhood and to see the beauty in all the moments. "Mommies' Priceless Moments" reminds you that motherhood, although challenging at times, is very rewarding and cannot be replaced.
That's basically what `Mommies' Priceless Moments' is about: a collection of funny, endearing stories as related by moms about their respective kids, sensibly curated and compiled by Johnson into a seamless whole. You'll laugh out loud when Tyson throws a baseball at the back of his mom's head, recognizing how our own kid also sometimes does things like that. You'll smile as Aja Whitten's son impulsively imitates the gait and swagger of a `rotund woman' walking ahead of them. Your jaws will drop at Amber chewing already chewed bubble gum--and what-not. Indeed, these are stories we're all familiar with, yet we still couldn't resist listening or reading about them--they strike a nerve of recognition deep inside us, and the effect is surprisingly a feel-good moment you'd love to inhabit and re-inhabit.
But make no mistake about it--this is not another one of those parenting books that provide `strict instructions' on how to raise a human being. Instead, `Mommies Priceless Moments' is a deeply entertaining way to get sort of reminded what other moms also "endure" (or "enjoy", depending on your mood for the day)--the small yet often delightful, sometimes frustrating, but always surprising things that our children have the knack of doing. The child takes a big dump, and we're all just so inexplicably excited about it--what our young kids do seems like an endless source of fascination, and Johnson has skillfully captured the experience.
Overall, `Mommies' Priceless Moments' is a must-read for all moms out there. The book is essentially Johnson's labor of love--for her adorable son and for everyone else's children, and it is something that everyone--mommies or not--can deeply relate to. Five stars for the heartwarming fun.
Amanda Johnson is a mom with experience, so she knows what she's talking about. Plus all the moms that contributed to the book shared their unique and hilarious stories to not only keep you entertained, but to tell you that you are not alone. Their kids are just as cute, terrible, frightening and adorable as yours. And if you are not a parent yet, you will get an insight into the real life of a mom and not some boring and posh advice from some sort of a college professor who never even held a child.
So, if you are looking for a strikingly funny read with real life stories, "Mommies' Priceless Moments" is just what you need.
