Mom Truths by Cat and Nat - Book Review

"No one will ever have all the answers. Every single mother out there - including the seemingly perfect moms who appear to breeze through life - has highs and lows. Every mother has feelings of both joy and guilt."
Mom Truths, Cat and Nat

This is such a fun book to read. Mom Truths is the first book from the best friends, and motherhood internet celebrities, Cat and Nat. The duo share their own parenting wins and fails, to help you both have a few tips, and also not feel like you're the only one to which crazy parenting crap happens!

Mom Truths vividly brought me back to my maternity leave when I would literally count the minutes until Rob would come home from work. Those were not my best days. In retrospect, Cat and Nat help me see that some are simply days I just needed to get through, and that's absolutely okay. Our children aren't going to remember that part. They are going to remember how much we loved them.

There were one or two chapters that didn't fully hit home with me, but overall I enjoyed this collection quite a bit. The chapters are bite-size and vary in structure which makes this book a quick read. It would be especially easy for a busy mom to pick up and put down if she only has 5 or 10 minutes to herself. My favourite chapters are "Instagram is Bullshit" (I love Instagram, and this is still one of my favourites!), and "Up, Yours Honey Nut Cheerio Bee" which is a chapter full of tips to shake up your routine when you're feeling like you're in a lonesome, repetitive mom rut.

Mom Truths is a perfect read for any mama who has a little one (or little ones) from the newborn to elementary school age. I really hope Cat and Nat write another book when their children become teens. I'm going to need it!
