What Any Mother of a Preschooler Needs (Besides a Week at a Spa!)
Does your car CD collection range from The Best of Rock-n-Roll Classics to The Best of Barney? Does your idea of a good dinner out mean crayons and paper placemats for all? Can hearing the words, "I love you, Mommy" make your whole day? Then chances are good that you are not only a mother of a preschooler (or soon-to-be one), but that you are in need of some laughter, inspiration and camaraderie from other women who've been there.
Let's face it: Our little bundles of joy and boundless energy don't come with instructions, and every mom undoubtedly thinks at one time or another: "Am I doing this right?!" In this uplifting collection, you'll find true stories about the day-to-day minutiae and miracles of being the mom to a preschooler: from finding peace and purpose in what can seem (and look!) like chaos; from solving sibling rivalry to celebrating sibling revelry; from the sorrow of letting go to enjoying some personal independence as your "big kid" goes off to school. Included are stories from well-known MOPS speakers, Lisa Moffitt and Rochelle Nelson.
In just a few minutes of alone time these stories will give mothers of preschoolers a place to release the stresses of their day, connect with other moms who they can relate to and evoke much-needed laughter. Like only Chicken Soup can, these stories will rekindle your sense of self and spirit, and remind you how to enjoy this precious period of time in your life.

From the moment i read the first story in this book, i was taken aback by its enlightening stories and humoristic style. Nickless takes the Chicken Soup series a step further with stories that not only teach, but also have the uncanny ability to make fun of the trials of being a mom of a little one. Any mother of a preschooler who reads this book will know she is not alone in her journey; and will even find herself having a giggle at her mommyhood struggles.
Very touching, humorous and relatable stories, that take a precious hold of your heart until the very last story!
They renew your faith in childhood innocence and remind you of all the reasons why you wanted to be a mom in the first place. Lifts the weakened spirit to new heights, while imparting you with smiles that show on your face and take root in your soul. An absolute must for preschool mothers, and even grandmothers of preschoolers! Enjoy the wit, tears and laughter of these wonderfully endearing stories. Don't pass this one by!!
I bought this book for my daughter, the mother of my 2yr old grandson. she has a spiritual side but does not go to church. I know that many of the Chicken Soup books have a Christian slant but this book does have an affiliation with the MOPS group and is therefore has a bigger religious slant than other Chicken Soups. I did not see the MOPS reference in the book description when I was ordering. I admit I did not read the entire 3 screens of description, feeling that having a number of these books of my own, I thought I knew what I was getting. I am still giving the book to my daughter in hopes that she is not turned off by the lack of "non-religious" stories. I am a Christian myself...but there is not a "Jesus" moment in every thing that happens to me. ALSO the book is smaller and flimsy-er than my other Chicken Soups. I don't know if that is because of the MOPS affiliation or what...but it is not of the quality I expected to be giving as a gift!
