In The Motherhood Diaries, ReShonda Tate Billingsley and other mothers shared the good, the bad, and the ugly of raising kids in the new millennium. Now, they’re back with more hilarious and heartwarming musings on motherhood. Motherhood can be the toughest - and funniest - job you’ll ever have. Raising kids is hard work, but humor can make the journey a little easier - even if you just have to laugh to keep from crying.
In The Motherhood Diaries 2, National Bestselling Author, ReShonda Tate Billingsley, uses personal anecdotes from her zoo - formerly known as a family - to show how humor helps her navigate the minefield of motherhood. This laugh-out-loud read portrays the truths about motherhood that we are either too ashamed or too proud to admit.
Through heartwarming and hilarious tales of motherhood, ReShonda and other mothers share their joys, pains, and everything in between. From Tia McCollors, who shows you how to pull life lessons from embarrassing moments; to Gina Johnson, whose circus puts Ringling Brothers to shame; to Janoah White, who learned to let laughter help her deal with a son who has autism; to Denise Leora Madre’s hilarious story on how motherhood shattered her naiveté - there’s something relatable for mothers from all walks of life. Then, stories from mothers like Naleighna Kai will show you how to find faith in the midst of motherhood; Nikki Woods, whose inspiring story will have you wanting to rethink your family legacy; and Regina Cooper, whose Diary of a Mortified Mom will have you double-checking those locks the next time you want to squeeze in quality time with your mate.
In all, twenty-five mothers share stories that will help you accept the insanity of motherhood and learn to laugh about it in the process. Finding humor in the raw honesty of life as a mother is a survival mechanism for most of us, and these moms will help you see you’re not alone in this refreshing, hilarious take on motherhood.
