Memory Making Mom
Be a different kind of mom. Break through the distractions and create lasting memories.
What’s the solution to gaining the balanced, meaningful life you desire with your family? Create traditions that bring joy and significance. Popular "Smartter Each Day" blogger and mom of three, Jessica Smartt explains why memory-making is the puzzle piece that today’s families are longing for. She highlights ten tradition-gifts kids need most, including a rich resource of two hundred–plus unique traditions. She also offers practical encouragement to modern parents to keep on adventuring—even when they are fighting distractions, are on a budget, and exhausted.
My thoughts: I didn't really put a whole lot of thought into the traditions that we have formed as a family and the ones that I grew up with until I started reading this book. Then, it was like a flood of memories came back to the special things that my parents would do for us. This book is an excellent reminder of why it's important for families to have traditions and the different kinds of traditions that we can have. I also really appreciated the reminder that they don't have to be perfect, since stressing about it can take the joy out of doing your traditions as a family. This is an excellent book!
I received this book from Book look bloggers. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
