Confessions of a Cereal Mother by Rachel McClellan

Confessions of a Cereal Mother
by Rachel McClellan

My Thoughts: Confessions of a Cereal Mother is a funny and often tear inducing novel. It touches on all aspects of motherhood. The good, the bad, and the sticky.
Rachel’s humor burns bright in the story. And she pulls in deeper emotions also. Reliving the birth of her first child brought back so many memories. Loved the “You’re having a baby, not getting an oil change,” moment. And the ending of the book had me in tears.
The story is a touching reality check about what it’s like to really be a mom. I enjoyed ever last minute of this book.  Rachel’s closing remake says it all:

And we would take the pain, a hundred times over if necessary.
Because we are the Mommies.

In this humorous memoir you’ll discover several mind-saving rules, which include:

- Don’t throw your pregnancy test away before the full three minutes is up.

- Unless there is a rush on the grocery store pending a zombie-virus outbreak, never take your kids shopping.

- If your toddler is going to chew on a Band-Aid, hope it’s one found inside the community swimming pools chlorinated pool and not one found in their locker room.

- Never throw up in a cookie sheet.

- Things can always get worse. You could discover your child playing with a used tampon applicator. It’s not a whistle, sweetie.

- And most importantly, the moment one of your children is seriously ill, forget about everything else. You have the greatest honor in the world – being a Mom.

Author Bio:

Once upon a time, in a wonderful and carefree world, Rachel McClellan fell asleep in a warm and spacious bed, her long hair in great locks around her, and not a single blemish upon her face. Outside her window, bluebirds sang and the cloudless blue sky was full of promise.

However, when she awoke she discovered gum in her now ratted hair, a tiny, chocolate fingerprint smeared across her forehead, and four very wiggly children crowding her bed. There were no bluebirds singing outside her window (or perhaps she couldn’t hear them anymore), only a tornado, pulsing with thunder and lightening. Her world was in chaos, a raging storm on all fronts.

But what a perfect storm it was…
