I was watching the Today show before I went to work and a book catch my eye.  It is the lastest of the Don't Sweat the Small Stuff series and its called Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms: Simple Ways to Stress Less and Enjoy Your Family More.

I am familiar with the series and I am always looking for ways to reduce stress so I decided to get the book. As promised, it does help you reduce stress and put things into perspective even though by the author's own admission, it doesn't offer any new advice for moms, but instead time-tested advice which moms hand down from one mom to the next.  Therefore, if you are looking for some technological advancement (in a dream) that will help you take care of your children easier than this is the wrong book for you.

What you will find are small chapters which are easy to read.  The author Kristine Carlson who is the wife of the late Robert Carlson who started the Don't Sweat the Small Stuff Series and, unfortunately, died in 2006 made a conscious effect create a book that moms can read easily even with interruption (moms don't get interrupted all the time, do they?).

There are 100 chapters in the book, but as I stated before they are not lengthy and get to the point.  Some of the chapters include: There’s No Such Thing as a “Perfect” Mom, Nourishing Your Spirit First, Building Your Family Team and Your Kids Will Call You Out and Dating and the Single Mom.  These chapter titles are self-explanatory and clearly demonstrate the author has a clear understanding of what being a mom is about because these are all issues mom have to deal except for the Dating and the Single mom chapter which is on a case-by-case basis.

This book is important because it reminds you about things you already know, but we forget due to being busy living life.  We all could use a reminder.
