Julie is a stay-at-home mother of three who wanted to share with the world her Do's & Don'ts of motherhood. She lives in Alabama with her husband of 20 years and her family.
Long Nights Short Years is one of the cutest books I have read in a long time. It is a short read - only 75 pages. It made me laugh out loud numerous time. The "I have been there done that feeling" was in every chapter.
One of the best sections in the book for me was how she explained motherhood like being a boat on the waves of the ocean, sometimes calm and sometimes a torrent of winds and waves. Oh my this is so true.
Plus, how as a Mom our normal changes! What was normal is never really normal again! To this day as a grandmother - normal with my grandchildren continues to change! Makes me smile - reading it!
I am sharing my copy of the book with my daughter. She has three children 13, 10, and 5. I am positive she will laugh her way through the book like I did.
I am also purchasing Long Nights Short Years for two very good friends Baby Showers. I think the book will be a perfect addition to my gifts. Julie did a excellent job of showing that being a Mom is the most important job in the work. Kinds come in all models and have no instructions - it is a adventure of LOVE that will last a life time!
Long Nights Short Years by Julie Carlyle is available at Amazon for $12.95. A perfect gift to give a Mom!
