Item description for The Velveteen Mommy: Laughter and Tears from the Toy Box Years by Jenn Doucette...

Overview
Offers much-needed encouragement for moms experiencing the parenting stress of the toy-box years.

Lighten your load with laughter.

As a stay-at-home mom, Jenn Doucette enjoys the smallest excuse to get away from her beloved duties, even for an hour. She calls it "running away from home to find my marbles."

Over time, the everyday tension builds and the inevitable mommy mania rears its ugly head. But just about the time she threatens to superglue her kids' shoes to their perpetually sockless feet, she gets booted out of the house to find her marbles-maybe to meet a friend at a coffee shop, browse at her favorite bookstore, or find restoration at a church retreat.

Whether you're a mom of toddlers or teens, you can probably identify. If you need a little change of pace, some comforting conversation, a sympathetic shoulder for a tear or two, and lots of laughter to lighten your load, you'll find it all within the covers of this book. The Velveteen Mommy can help every mother become real again.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Velveteen Mommy: Laughter and Tears from the Toy Box Years?

A very fun read!  Apr 4, 2007
It's nice to know that other people deal with similarly ridiculous situations on a daily basis! Just knowing that I am not alone in the unattainable goal of conquering Laundry Mountain is a relief! Jenn Doucette has peppered her book with lots of laughs and "Me Too!!!" moments. I have read the book twice now since receiving it hot off the press and I think I laughed even harder the second time (a good sign)! A sense of humor goes a long way in this journey called motherhood, without one bitterness may just set in! One suggestion, read The Velveteen Rabbit - especially with your kids - before and after reading The Velveteen Mommy, it truly adds to the enjoyment of both. I recommend this book for all of us who are getting worn with love, the love of our precious children!
 
Great For Moms!  Oct 30, 2005
It is certainly a truth that the Lord uses our everyday existence as a school of learning, so is the case in this book by author Jenn Doucette. In this work she shares the ups and downs of being a parent, the trials, the joys, the strain on patience, tolerance and strength and shares out loud what so many are screaming within, "Help me Lord!"
Lighthearted and always real, our author weaves God's wisdom into her stories bringing a sense of calm and peace in the whirlwind life of a parent. Many a mom will relate and draw encouragement and strength in reading this work from someone who knows. It's always a blessing to know that you are not alone.
 
A Refreshing Look at Mommyhood!  Oct 24, 2005
Like all busy moms, I tend to forget what is important in raising children ~~ and Doucette is here to remind me! This is a lovely book ~~ inspirational and funny in some parts ~~ and refreshing. This book is a Christian book and in some ways, it can be used as a Bible Study ~~ but I read it to know that I am not alone in the trenches of mommyhood!

Written with gentle humor, Doucette writes of her own trials as a mother with three youngsters under the age of five. She writes poignantly of her failings ~~ and she writes in a way that the reader can relate to ~~ it's almost as if she's in the room with you sharing her tales of woes and joys over a cup of coffee. As a mom of two very active preschoolers, this book is my "time-out" from their demands. It is just wonderful knowing that I can be a Velveteen Mommy and still be loved by God!

If you're a mother of youngsters, I would not hesitate in picking this book up! In fact, I would run to the nearest bookstore and see if they have it in stock ~~ you'll be glad that you did!!

A Must Read   Aug 26, 2005
A book to uplift and delight. Jenn Doucette uses humorous stories and biblical wisdom to show us we're never alone. God is with us through the joys and struggles of motherhood. He NEVER fails to pull us out of the "trenches of motherhood," and carry us though another day of laundry up to our eyeballs.
 
A REAL mom!  Aug 26, 2005
Hilarious! Touching! Real! These are just a few of the words describing this great book by new author Jenn Doucette. Jenn is a real mom who shares the ups and downs of family life that will have you alternately laughing and crying. A great debut!
