These women come in many shapes and sizes, however they all respond to a single name: Mom. If you know one of these women, if you are one of these women, or if you are going to be one of these women, you need this book!

SPONSOR OF THE MONTH

MOMS-2-e1406504042463
Andrea Keeney is a writer, blogger, mother, and wife. She is the creator of the blog, Parenting with Parents as well as the author of the book, Moms: As Elite as the C.I.A….Well Almost. When she isn’t pursuing her dreams of writing she is taking care of her three small children.
Attention! There is an elite group of women walking freely among the average citizens of the world. These freakishly instinctive beings are capable of physical, mental, and emotional acts of greatness. They tend to appear irritated, exhausted, and are almost always bombarded by very tiny renegades who are whining and/or yelling. These women come in many shapes and sizes, however they all respond to a single name: Mom. If you know one of these women, if you are one of these women, or if you are going to be one of these women, you need this book!

Like Tonia says, sometimes there are things that you just need to let slide off the burner completely in order to take care of the items that are the most important. I absolutely love the analogy “eat the frog” because that’s one of my pitfalls – putting off those tasks that HAVE to be done in favor of doing something that I WANT to do (housework v. blogging). If I “eat the frog” and just get the nasty over with – then I have more time to spend on doing what I love to do. It’s a concept that I preach to my two boys on a daily basis, yet I have trouble doing it myself. This was my most favorite post this week and “Eat the Frog!” is now taped to my computer monitor as a reminder to get the yuck done and out the way so I can do the fun stuff!”
