Motherhood Is Easy: Book Review

Rebekah Hunter Scott is a hilarious mommy blogger who has written a book about her life as a mother of two young children.  "Motherhood Is Easy...As Long As You Have Nothing To Do For the Next 50 Years" is a collection of humorous stories about the perils and pitfalls of motherhood.  The author has a real talent for expressing everyday events in a humorous way.  I found myself laughing aloud many times as I read this book.

Ms. Scott writes about her experiences in a way that all mothers will relate to.  She wants mothers to know that they are not alone.  Sometimes we have to laugh to keep from crying.  Things don't always go as we plan...especially when we have a toddler and an infant to care for. 

The children will grow up all too soon.  My daughter is now 28 years old and my granddaughter will soon be seven.  Where have the years gone?  This book will help you appreciate the time that you have with your young children and realize that you just can't take things too seriously.  It is also a good read for a grandmother who survived the child rearing experience and can now look back and smile.
