Mother Daze:  Tales from the Imperfect Playground

motherdaze_cover_small

Mother Daze is a truthful account of modern motherhood, a virtual high five offered to the women of the world, written by a girl who thought she had  life well under control until kids came along… surprise!  It’s been said that motherhood should unlock a universal understanding:  same  team, same goal… happy, healthy child, but what about the happy, healthy  mommy?  Where is she in the mix?  This heartfelt story, told  through entertaining anecdotes from my own adventures as a 37 year old mother of three young children, coupled with my fifteen years of  teaching experience as a Physical Education teacher at a public elementary  school, will provide smiles and sunshine for the many women of the world who honestly question, “What happened to my life?”  It is a story written directly from my heart to every woman out there.  I am not a clinical person by any means, and my book is not a clinical diagnosis of life as a parent, and therein lies its strength… I am the woman in the audience, down in the trenches on a daily basis, and I am offering a collection of reflections from someone who exists right beside the reader.  I have taken my many years of teaching experience and put it front and center as it relates to the everyday occurrences associated with life as a parent.
