I am a mother!

Our book club this month read the book "I am a Mother" by Jane Clayson Johnson. Have you read it? you should... I really enjoyed this book. Never apologize for being a mom. There is nothing better than being a mom. Jane Clayson Johnson was a host on the Early Show and a career woman before she married her husband and resigned from her job and chose to be a stay at home mom. The book tells of her experiences leading up to this and peoples reactions to her decision. One thing I enjoyed about this book was that I didn't feel guilty for not being the perfect mom, but I did feel that the work I do for my family is important! Her big thing was how the world says "I'm just a mom" as if we should be doing more, get a doctorate, work in an office. It's ok to be a mom and to be proud to say it.
I am a mom! and I love being a mom!
