Lately I've been struggling with trying to balance working, the house, family and friends, my marriage, and most important caring for Jack. It pains me that I have to send Jack to daycare. I want to spend my days with him but it just isn't possible for us.
I hit a point where I was feeling so inadequate that everything was a struggle. I decided to look on Amazon for a self-help book. I'm a huge advocate for good self-help books. I ran across Maxed Out: American Moms on the Brink. It received wonderful reviews so I decided to buy it.
So far I have read 60% of it and I have to say I love it! The book is set up like a memoir. At the end of each chapter Katrina gives you facts that deal with that particular chapter. It is startling some of the things I have learned.
After reading this book I think it is ridiculous that American women are not given at least 6 weeks of pain maternity leave.
If you are a stressed out mother do yourself a favor and read this book.
