Overview

Tiffany Palisi, the force behind Loving Mama: Essays on Natural Parenthood and Mothering, writes in this second collection of essays about the struggle to make parenting choices heard. Her decision to become a stay-at-home mom resulted from a miscarriage that changed the course of her life, and she examines one of the most basic roles a human can fulfill, motherhood, as the nexus of decisions facing women today.

“The truth is,” she writes, “something about being a stay-at-home makes the job seem at once both luxurious and trite.” These essays chronicle the life that her decision gave her. Through the eyes of one stay-at-home mother, she reestablishes motherhood as rewarding work-even without the 401(k) plans, the company of colleagues, or medical benefits-and expresses her choice not as an interruption in her life, but as a celebration of it.

    Mama's World: Essays from the Inside Out

    I decided to read Mama's World after reading a good review of it in a magazine in my pediatrician's office. I started to read it while my son was at preschool and just couldn't stop. It had me laughing out loud. Palisi recounts past Christmases and how they match up to her mother led Christmas. She talks about trying to breastfeed, lose the baby weight, and get some sleep. It's laugh out loud funny, so don't read it while the kiddos are sleeping or you just may wake them up!

    Mama's World: Essays from the Inside Out

    I just finished reading this book. It isn't too long so it went by fast, but I enjoyed every moment of reading it. This is cool because it talks about the real side of being a mom at home, and includes all the funny and difficult moments involved with mothering full-time. If you are a stay at home mom, you will love this book. Actually, most moms, even those who work, will enjoy it. The only thing is that the author could make working moms feel bad because she talks about choosing not to work because she feels it's the moms job to mother. So if you work and can get past that, it's a pretty cool little book. Also, I like that she writes how her son speaks phonetically so you can almost hear him. She talks about moms clubs, holidays, and everyday happenings like supermarket shopping as if it is an adventure. (With little kids, I guess it is!) It's compiled of short stories so you can keep it in your purse and read one story at a time while waiting to pick up the kids at school or before going to bed.
