Half tips, half relateable stories, This Is How We Do It features essays from eight moms on how to make the most of every day. With a variety of experience (some raising toddlers, others wrangling teenagers), they’ve seen it all and learned to laugh about it.

In the book, the topics are as varied as the mothers themselves. Read essays on:

* Finding the calm after a bout with postpartum depression
* Learning how to juggle life as a homeschooling mom of five,
* The isolation and judgement of being a young mom in the 1980s (read: no Internet and no mommy blogs),
….and much, much more.
