Happy Mom coverSchool has started for our family and the stress of homework, afterschool activities, church, and piano practice is kicking in.

I was stressed about getting out the door after dinner.  I muttered to the sink of dishes, “I’m stressed!”

Guess what Noelle, my fourth grader, said?

Mommy, why don’t you just practice what you write about in your book?

Oh baby!  I had the AHA moment that I could either do those same dishes with a stressed out demeanor.  Or I could take a deep breath, exhale…and smile.  We can switch our attitudes and then our to-do’s become a whole lot more pleasant.

Want to know you’re not alone in the trenches mom?  My book 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom is now available everywhere fine books are sold.  And remember, if you get your book by August 10, you’ll get these 3 three gifts from me!
