I received a copy of the book,”Parenting is Easy: You’re Probably Just Doing It Wrong” by Sara Given. Such a pleasure reading that book, made me laugh my butt off. She took a typical stock photos of pregnancy, babies, parenting, breastfeeding, family, etc. that one might find in a commercial, advertisement or in an magazine, and has turned them into a hilarious book. It’s such a great book, that i’ll be passing on to one of my great friends. Here is my favorite.



Grooming your toddler can be easy and fun! Communicate your expectations ahead of time by giving clear and concise directions like, “Please just this once don’t cry and slither onto the floor over and over again until I just give up and let you look like a wilding.” 

Parenting is Easy..

Real life. I have to use two hands not just one, there is lot’s of crying and tugging and pulling. There are no happy faces here. No filter. hehe 

I love how real this book is, sometimes we look at magazines and think how perfect their life can be. However, you’re not seeing all the behind the scenes. Don’t compare your life, kids, family to others. Just know that you are doing a great job. There is no manual on how to be a good parent, you roll with the punches. 



I challenge you to recreate a “real world” version of your favorite page on Parenting is Easy…

If you don’t have the book, make sure you grab one, or grab a magazine and recreate something that stands out to you.
