Descripción del producto
Biografía del autor
CAROL BARNIER is a humorist and speaker, frequent radio guest and author, Pastor's kid, Christian. . .and former atheist. These days she admits she takes her God, her faith and her theology very seriously, but herself. . .not so much. To every task she brings along her slightly irreverent humor, whether tackling the issues of being very ADHD, the discomfort at being asked to be the older woman in a Titus program (after all, Titus rhymes with phlebitis--proceed with caution), or how to love today's "woman at the well." But in her latest project--bringing tools and hope to the parents of prodigals, Carol rolls up her sleeves and shares ideas and stories from the heart and from her own journey. In every talk, every article, every interview and every book, it is her objective to not only inspire people, but to give them something they can take home and use immediately. She lives in Connecticut with her husband of 25 years and her three kids.

--The clothes I tried so hard to get back into (after having a baby) are now out of style?
--I can NEVER get caught up on laundry, dishes or sleep?
--My brain turned to mush just as soon as my second son was conceived?
--I can never find the remote control, but I can find a lego in the middle of the night--with the tender part of my foot?!
Oh, well--this is a chaotic stage of life. I'm trying to embrace the chaos and not get bogged down in it. To help in that endeavor, I've been reading a really funny, practical book. The title is great--it's a Mommy Question extraordinaire: If I'm Diapering a Watermelon, Then Where'd I leave the Baby? by Carol Barnier The subtitle is "Help for the Highly Distractible Mom." I love it!
Often, I've found myself wondering why I couldn't be a little more like Martha Stewart (in her pre-prison days!) and less like Lucy Ricardo. I mean, I can get into trouble faster than anyone I know! I really try to be organized and "with it"--but it doesn't happen very often. I lose my purse, my keys, and my cellphone regularly. Sometimes, I think I might lose my head if it wasn't attached. So if you're a highly distractible mom like me, take comfort in this thought from Barnier: "Your children were placed in your home by a wise and all-loving God who knew what He was doing. There is something your children are supposed to absorb from your love of life and spontaneity that they will need if they are to become what God has intended for them. . . And there are people to be reached for the kingdom who are tailor-made to be attracted to your spontaneous, casual, delight-filled ways." Spontaneous moms, rock on!!!
The thing is, you do get help, but the person leading you to a more organized life has "given birth, did have a few extra pounds to lose, and loves Turtle cheesecake better than tofu".
There's a home schooling section that doesn't apply to me, but may apply to you, but this is really a great tool. And I love that she added some easy recipes and fun activities for the mom with younger children. It's a fun book. Carol promises this:
To help women work with their personality traits rather than against them to make it possible to: keep track of items; actually arrive on time or even early; access information that you need when you need it; limit pesky interruptions; get stuff to organize itself; and run a home and have fun doing it.
