A Gift for Mothers


I wish that I could step back in time to those early moments of motherhood when normal seemed so far off, to those days when I feared that the crying would never stop, or that the baby would never wake up to eat, or that the baby would never stop waking up to eat.  I’d gently place my hands on my own tense shoulders and whisper into my ear, “Robin, everything will turn out just fine.”

As a new mother, that’s all that I had needed to hear.  Whether new or not, that’s what most every mother needs to hear.

Last week I received a message from a woman who just had finished reading the first chapter Then I Became a Mother.

"Where was this book four-and-a-half years ago?" she began.  "This will help so many mommas!  I can't wait to continue reading!"

Fellow moms -- you women who are wiping and cleaning, rocking and hushing, feeding and burping, changing and bathing, teaching and correcting, laughing and crying, cutting food into bite-sized portions and waking early to do it all again the next day -- do you realize that you're doing extremely important work?

You deserve to be cared for, too.

So, let me ask you: Are you a tired mother?  Could you use a good laugh, a word of encouragement, and a pat on the back?  If so, this book is for you.

Have you ever faced a day where you've cried more than your children?  Well, this book is for you.

Have you so deeply longed for one quiet moment that you've contemplated staging an accident where your child's favorite musical toy is mysteriously run over in your driveway?

This book definitely is for you.

Do you know a new or young mom who needs to to be uplifted?  This book is for her, too.

Today, give yourself the gift of being a more refreshed, encouraged, and lightened mom.  And bless another mom by delivering a copy right to her inbox.

What readers are saying:

"Hysterical and spot on!  Then I Became a Mother is a must-read for every expecting mother, new mom, or any mom of young children.  Kramer has an uncanny ability to use the written word to mentor a mother's heart.  Her writing style is as intimate and genuine as having coffee with a dear friend."  (Jennifer Wiles Mullen, Mosiac of Moms)

"Then I Became a Mother captures the essence of the mothering experience certainly more than any other book I've read."
