Hi all! I recently got the opportunity to review a new book written by Stacy Taylor over at Taylor411 called Parenting in Joyful Chaos: Raising Two Under Two, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you today!

Summary of Parenting In Joyful Chaos
From Amazon: “In this book, I share my story of raising two boys under the age of two. Throughout my motherhood journey I have discovered things that work best for us, and things that don’t work at all. You will hear how my husband and I made our situations work and how you can too! I share with you daily solutions, and helpful tips to make home life a little easier. Included in this book, is advice on how to maintain a healthy balance in your home. Also included are ways to maintain a positive attitude along with good self-esteem.”
What I Liked About It
This was a quick read.
Moms don’t have time to read forever. This is quick but entertaining. It took me less than 30 minutes start to finish.
I really admire Stacy’s story.
She packed up and moved halfway across the country! You’ve got to have guts to do that, but she and her husband knew it was the right thing to do. She struggled with getting pregnant, a struggle I can’t imagine. And, sorry for stating the obvious, but they have two children under the age of two. I have only one of those, and even that can be an epic struggle! I truly admire moms with children so close in age that still have time to do anything, much less write a book, buy a new house, recover from a C-section, etc. etc. Stacy chronicles her struggles as well as her triumphs in a way that made me tear up a little but laugh along the way.
There are great tips for self-care as well as parenting suggestions.
Taking care of yourself as a mother is so important, and Stacy definitely understands that. She has specifically identified what makes her household run more smoothly, which can be hard to do in the blur of just trying to get through the day!
