Whether she's a Supermom or a Slacker mom, these stories by women who've been there and diapered are the perfect dose of inspiration for mothers of kids ages 2-5. Many women fantasize about motherhood, imagining picture-perfect days spent with a smiling, contented Pampers baby. Most moms of young children soon realize that along with the precious moments and the enormous love come daily challenges like dealing with toddler tantrums, toilet training, sibling rivalry and getting young ones to sleep through the night (or not). This leaves moms wondering "Is mothering supposed to be like this?! Am I doing this right?!" In an easy-to-read format, Chicken Soup for the Mother of Preschoolers Soul offers 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 a moms sense of herself and her spirit, encouraging her through this short, but most precious period of time in her children's life. MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. MOPS International helps moms through relationships established in the context of local groups that provide a caring atmosphere for today's mother of young children.
