Best mom book out there for moms of many blessings

If you've ever felt like you're "going under," drowning under the flood of laundry, discipline, exhaustion, diapers, food, mess, and all the other stuff that comes with small kids, this little book is a lifesaver. I'm the mom of 5 blessings, ages 8 and under, and I've read a lot of parenting books by moms of 1 or 2 kids, moms whose kids are long out of the house, and other moms who have good advice, but lack credibility to me because they've not been "in the trenches" lately, or have not been in trenches quite as full as the one I'm in. Rachel LIVES in the trenches, just like I do. She knows. The chapters are really short, easy and engaging to read, but so full of perspective and truth, you can re-read the same chapter 5 times in a row and still learn from it. I'm buying a pile of copies for all the moms I know who seem a bit overwhelmed at times.
I am a mom of 3 kids, 3 yrs old and under. This book was a great source of encouragement written by a mom in the trenches experiencing the good, the bad, and the smelly!! Most books I have found are written by folks who are remembering the fond times and wishing thier big kids were still small. This book is a must buy for mom's with small children...not to mention it is an easy read. You can read a chapter between feedings or nap times!!
This book was absolutely wonderful! It is a collection of short, humorous essays about parenting little ones that was extremely encouraging with a biblical focus. If it were in my budget to buy one for all my mommy friends I would!
