    One thought on “Lose the Cape: Never Will I Ever (and then I had kids!)”

    1. Never Will I Ever (and then I had kids) is a compilation of some wonderful true life examples of how parenting is never what you expected and can surprise you in so many ways. Some stories were downright hilarious and incredibly fun to read on my lunch break. Some stories were so beautifully written that I wondered if these people had careers as professional writers. Some stories were so relatable and moving that they made me want to reach through the screen and hug the mom who wrote it, and say [...]

    2. All knackered and daft and vulnerable have you bared your heart to a ‘friend’ only to meet with affected civility? A nod seemingly agreeing but silently judging? Have you been handed advice tinged with ever so slightly perceptible scorn? Yes ? Me too. Met that on-top -of her-game mamma at the park? Or the one that stares you down at the doctor’s office? Right there with you!Motherhood is lonely as it is.And then last week I came across another friend. A book really. Books are friends , are [...]

    3. I'd like to thank the editors for my free copy to review "Lose the Cape: Never Will I Ever (and then I had kids!). The mosaic of stories makes it a good blend of things we may experience as parents on the journey of getting our kids to adulthood. I applaud the contributors for putting their experiences out there to the rest of us and making us realize we are not alone! Jeanine Lebsack's "Five Myths of Motherhood Debunked" -The myths vs. the realities of what we experience after we bring our litt [...]

    4. Never will I ever . . . blame the holidays for my lack of motivation.I never used to think that I would blame the holidays for not getting anything done. It seemed like a cop out. However, that was way before having children.I should have had this post done last month. I should have had the book finished last month.Then the holidays and the aforementioned lack of motivation. Time was also not on my side. I decided to do things like go to work, make Christmas cookies and try to remember where I h [...]

    5. What do you get when you gather stories from 32 moms? A lot of great advice, laughs and wisdom. I was happy to receive an advance readers copy of Lose the Cape! Never Will I Ever (And then I had Kids!) to review and I must admit that I was not sure if I would enjoy a book aimed at moms since I am pretty much out of the child raising era at my ripe old age. However I found myself chuckling, nodding my head, laughing out loud and yes, even getting a little misty eyed at a few of the selections fro [...]

    6. This book is full of raw reality - the truth about motherhood. So often social media beats moms up, with pictures of perfect children in sparkly white, monogrammed dresses smiling with fluorescent white teeth, that of course have never been tarnished by a cavity. But the reality is, those children may exist, but standing behind the camera is a mom with the "ponytail/ yoga pant combo" who can't remember if she brushed her hair, let alone fed the kids breakfast. This book is fueled by the writers' [...]

    7. I received a free advance digital copy of Lose the Cape: Never will I Ever (and then I had kids) to write a non-biased review. The moms in this anthology are moms like me, like you, the every mom. At some point, we all eat our words (eh, as long as someone in this house is eating something, right?). Ranging from funny to serious stories, this book highlights the moments when “never” becomes “now” and even “always.” Motherhood changes us, broadens our perspective, and enhances the vis [...]

    8. This is a fantastic group of essays that focus on all the things we said we would "never ever" do as parentsat is, until we had kids ourselves! This is a great read for parents (and parents-to-be) everywhere.

    9. I am in this book, so I may be biased (ok I am). I did love all the stories in the book. I am honored to be in with the other writers in here.

    10. As a contributor I was privy to read an advanced copy of this book and I LOVED it. Great collection of essays, which range from hilarious to "pull at your heart strings."

    11. Haven’t we all at one time or another, said to ourselves, “I’ll never be that parent?” Then, when approached by the very same situation, end up realizing that we should have uttered, “Never say never?” That’s what this new anthology reminds us all.Funny, sentimental, reflective – these writers who are all moms – with one dad speaking out – narrate their tales about how parenting changed their perspective on things they claimed they’d never do. Flipping through the book and [...]

    12. I've read enough of these kinds of books to know when the writing is good and when it's not. (See "Motherhood and Martinis.") And I hate, hate, HATE all the "ohhhhh being a mom is so hard / gross / exhausting / whatever, but don't you just love it anyway" crap floating around the interwebz these days.Fortunately, this is not that book. The majority of the pieces are well-written and thoughtful and don't make me want to puke. Favorites included Penguin Parade, The Rise and Fall of a Paper Mom, an [...]

    13. Parents that need a good laugh or need to come to grips that they can't be perfect, will love Lose the Cape. The stories were funny and relatable, I was laughing out loud and nodding in agreement with the parenting promises these parents were confessing they broke. I love anthologies like these because it's so easy to squeeze in reading short stories into a busy day without committing to a full novel. Visit momssmallvictories/never-w for my full review.
