INTRODUCTION

From Chicken Soup for the Mother of Preschooler's Soul

Introduction

You work endlessly from morning till dusk. You are head cook and chief taxi driver. You are the keeper of the Cheerios, the dream maker and the boo-boo healer. As a master multi-tasker, you clean house, do laundry and make lunch—all while maintaining a character role in your child’s game of make-believe. You are a master educator with an answer for every “why?” With superhero power, you accomplish the unimaginable—even with a little one strapped to your leg whining, “Up, Mommy.”

Yet, in the midst of your busyness, you find time to cuddle and kiss and relish the affection of your children.

This book is our gift to you: for all those months that seem endless, those days you feel disappointment or confusion, and those moments when you wonder—“Is mothering supposed to look like this?” We hope this book helps bridge the gap between unrealistic expectations and the undeniable reality of a mom’s day-to-day life.

Within these stories, you’ll discover significance in your mothering, balance and laughter in your chaos, and a new language of love for your children. You’ll learn that your daily presence is your child’s present. You’ll find that help is there for the asking . . . and so is time for yourself. You’ll laugh at life from a child’s perspective. You’ll wince at the pain of letting them go as they enter school for the first time. And you’ll learn that, although the days might seem too long, the years will be too short.

So, with deep love and respect for all you do, we offer Chicken Soup for the Mother of Preschooler’s Soul. Let it refresh your soul and rekindle your spirit.
