This ultimately resulted in being the best decision to turn our crazy upside down morning right side up again.

With so many emotions that morning already, by the middle of the book, tears were streaming down. These were now tears due to overwhelming joy and love. Every statement of “I’d Rather Be Your Mommy” repeated within the book was a reminder to myself. Regardless of all of the daily struggles, when it comes down to it, I love being my children’s mommy.

There is something about coloring that is calming. After we read the story, my daughters and I had some family coloring time. Most of the time, the kids color on their own, and it is a good opportunity for me to tidy up the kitchen or do laundry. But once in a while, I will decide to put household chores on hold, and just enjoy being with them. That day, I decided to slow down and appreciate this time. So we colored together. It was so relaxing, and it felt good doing something as simple as this together. The coloring book contains most of the pages from the story in a coloring book format. It is a nice touch to reiterate the beautiful message of the book. The kids can internalize the words, and personalize it with their choice of colors.
