Is Motherhood Like a Secret Society? Soleil Moon Frye Wasn't Given a Manual

Soleil Moon Frye's book Happy Chaos

Everyone tells you how much your life will change after you become a mom.  But, just like how everyone tells you to enjoy your sleep before the baby comes, most of us roll our eyes, thinking that those women telling us that are just exaggerating.

But, it’s so true! It’s only after we have that little bundle of joy that we realize just how different our lives are and just how little we actually know about taking care of babies.

Soleil Moon Frye, known to some of us as “Punky Brewster,” has a book coming out about motherhood called Happy Chaos. See what she has to say about motherhood:

“As a new mom, I literally felt like everyone got that secret manual that I just never read! Everyone seemed to have the parenting thing down and I would be (wondering), ‘Wait a minute, I don’t know how to open the stroller right!’ I was totally that messy mom! I felt like I was on another planet and wouldn’t know how to do the right things.”

Happy Chaos will be released on August 23, 2011. From that quote from Soleil Moon Frye, I think I’ll be able to relate to this book!
