Momumental by Jennifer Grant

About The Book:
Adventures in the Messy Art of Raising a Family. One mom’s humorous and candid memoir shows would-be supermoms how to create a realistically balanced family life without losing their minds. A longtime former writer for the Chicago Sun-Times and now a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, Jennifer Grant is no stranger to the common reader. Momumental is a foray into the enormously amusing, creative, and taxing process of raising a family and a starkly honest memoir that mothers everywhere can identify with. With narrative that is chock-full of humorous, poignant stories drawn from her everyday adventures as a mother and wife, Grant presents an entertaining and inspirational book that will give readers uncommon insights about being an intentional parent.

My Thoughts:
This book could have been written by me, or my mom, or my best friend, or my sisters! I say that because this book is not fiction. It is an incredibly true story of one mom, who is a normal and real mom, and whom so many mothers I know can relate to. I laughed out loud, and nodded my head in agreement and understanding when I read this book. This is not a mommy-how-to book. It is just one gal's story, and she happens to be a mama. I love the cover as well, because it messy - with cheerios! And life as a parent certainly gets messy! Great book!

  1. An excellent review. I’ve read this book too and I agree, I love Jennifer Grant’s honest, conversational style. Reading it felt like listening to a good friend, who gave me permission to not only embrace the chaos of motherhood but also to be intentional about the things that really matter.
