This review is from my wife, to better capture the value of this book…
As a stay at home mom of two rambunctious boys, I have struggled non-stop on how to be happy in the midst of all that is required of me as mom, wife, teacher, student, entertainer, punching bag, maid, and everything-we-need-you-to-be person. If you by chance feel like me, then let me suggest a tool that will not only encourage you but will also give you sound advice on how to make the changes that you so eagerly desire so that you can become the mom that G-d has called you to be. That tool is called 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom by Arlene Pellicane. In this book you will find uplifting and encouraging insight on how to implement practical steps to developing a happy “momitude”.
One of the most essential parts that I personally pulled from this book is the concept that Arlene calls “Vitamin G”. She explains that instead of popping chocolate chips (which I am so guilty of) when we are at wits end, we should pop a vitamin G, the G standing for gratitude. I can say from experience that taking the time to show G-d gratitude for my children and husband instead of grumbling truly has changed the condition of my heart. This is only one of many encouraging realizations that Arlene points out in how to become a mom who is truly happy, not only with her children or even with her husband, but rather who is happy with herself.
I applaud Arlene for sharing her insights and advice on how to curb grumpy mom syndrome and have a momitude seasoned with the nourishing fruits that we find in Galatians 5:22.
