The Mommy Diaries: How I’m Surviving Parenting without Killing Anyone [a book review]

What Dallas Louis suggests to future and new mothers in her new book "RUN! LOCK THE DOOR AND RUN!

Though she is the oldest of three sisters and always wanted to have children, now that she is mother of three, all within 26 months, she says "When you have children of your own, there isn't anyone to tag-team with. You are it. Always." As most of you may agree with her "...that thought didn't really occur... until much too late to do anything about it..."


You may ask your what a mother is she? After having three children within 26 months, Dallas Louis’ life has been a non-stop circus. From nearly getting kicked out of Disney World after her youngest tackled Cinderella, to being on a first name basis with her family orthopedic surgeon, Louis’ children and home life are a constant source of material – enough to fill her new book, The Mommy Diaries: How I’m Surviving Parenting without Killing Anyone (May 2012). image001

It was fun reading this ebook because it reminded me that “Parenthood is an intense roller coaster filled with constant chaos, the pitter-patter of adorable, yet never-ceasing little feet, broken dishes, and emotional ups and downs - from the kids and the parents! And all this in addition to the regular duties, chores, and responsibilities of a normal American household,”and “Sometimes laughter is needed to survive the more challenging days!”

Louis also shares her parenting lessons with a generous dose of humor. Through it all, she also shares her source of strength and the means by which she not only perseveres through her day, but also finds the joy amidst the chaos: God.

Though Louis’ account on the trial and tribulations of the most difficult yet rewarding job in the world is not new, it felt good to be reminded that sometimes laughter and prayers are needed to carry on this beautiful work known as motherhood.
