Confessions of a Wonder Woman Wannabe is a book that every mother can enjoy reading. I enjoyed it so much that I literally read over half the book in the very first sitting. Mind you, I’m a mother of three kids, but that does not by any means makes me the perfect mother. I desperately want to be the Wonder Woman running our household.
Yet, I’m still trying to keep from having those mother of all meltdowns in my daily walk with my kids. I have literally jumped leaps and bounds lately due to doing a lot of praying and reading some very valuable resources. Sometimes knowing you’re not alone in a situation makes a world of difference. Especially when you have people surrounding you telling you that you’re too strict with your kids.

Confessions of a Wonder Woman Wannabe is book filled with practical advice to help us be better mothers. Some of these tips are pretty common sense. However, as she clearly points out in the book, after we have kids our typical amount of sense seems to go out the window. Since we do become so absentminded more times than not we need to read books like her’s to help us get the extra kick in the butt to become at least a super mom.
When I got this book in the mail, Delbert stated he was going to like this book. I honestly and truly thought he was crazy because he knew it was a book for ME to read. Yet, in all out reality he is right to some extent because it is filled with many things that have helped ease some of the stress in my own life.
I have told you that I’ve been working on making changes in the way I handle things. From starting off my day right with my Mommy lessons to learning to not yell nearly as much. Plus working on my own marriage by gaining some inspiration from reading other blog series.
I have decided that God created me to be uniquely ME. He blessed me with my kids because he wanted ME to raise them. I will never earn any gold stars for being the best cook, housekeeper or overly crafty. I lack imagination except for writing stories that are in my head (and most of those are ones I’m actually afraid to share out loud because they run very close to Fifty Shades of Gray material (only involving my husband.))
I can say though, that I do try to be the best wife and mother I KNOW how to be. My mother was not raised by a good mother, and she wasn’t the world’s best mother either. However, she did the best she could to be better than her own mother was. After the things I learned AFTER she passed away, I feel she did a remarkable job. I do wish she would have told me about her childhood so I could have understood her better, but she didn’t.
My kids know I was raised up in a very strict home with very little toys. I got to watch TV two hours a week if that. I wasn’t given video games or any other luxuries (UNLESS it involved horses.) I always had at least two to three hours worth of chores to do before I could sit down to do my homework.
I think my kids have a better life than that. They also are free to be kids far more than I was growing up. Gosh knows they get plenty of time with me, and I treasure every moment with them.
I highly recommend this book for any mother or any mother wannabe. It paints a clear realistic view of what we should strive to do with our lives. She also makes me feel better as a mother too.
