      some good essays, many blah ones. Muffy Bolding's stood out as particularly good. I find the premise that many of the authors start with - "my art is inherently important" - a bit suspect, but I also recognize that I'd be better off if I had more such confidence in my own talents and importance.

    3. Aubrey

      There were some amazing, inspiring essays about being a Mama and an artist (of one type or another) in this book. I was reminded that I am not alone in my struggles to balance mothering and being a creative woman, and I got some good ideas on how to mingle the two.

      Some great stories. Woman finding (or maintaining) a sense of selfhood in spite of all the odds as they journey into motherhood.

    5. Ciara

      i read an awful lot of books about parenting for someone who actually does not have a child. i don't even have any super-close friends who have children. i don't even do anything that involves interacting with children on a regular basis, like being a children's librarian or an elementary school teacher or something. what's my deal? blame the time i spent attending midwifery school. obviously this is a book about being a parent. the sub-title sums it up: it's essays from various parents (exclusi [...]

      I loved this book. Not all essays, mind you, but some really rang true to me. As an almost-40 mama of a 3 year old, so much of this resonated with me and helped me feel connected to the struggles I was facing post-baby. An important read for any mothers struggling with balancing their own creative thoughts, endeavors, plans and dreams. Not a perfect collection, but I wish there were more books out there like this in the parenting dept. Most do little for me and don't speak to me at all.

    7. Susannah

      My sweet husband picked this up for me in NYC a few weeks ago, which is just one more tiny thing to add to a long list of things that make me love him to pieces. We'd never discussed the book, but I knew of it and had been wanting to read it. So here we go. Update: Some good essays, some forgettable ones. It's hit or miss, but a nice read for creative/arts-oriented expecting moms.

    8. Anastasia

      This anthology is hit and miss-- there are some very important and thought-provoking essays, as well as art, poetry, etc speaking to the difficulty in balancing motherhood with creativity/time for self. Some of the pieces are not as strong or don't delve sufficiently below the surface, but overall, I'd recommend it.

    9. Tricia

      This is a compilation of short stories by various authors. While I really enjoyed reading some of the stories, many of them I didn't. The beauty of this type of book is that you can just skip a story or two if you prefer.

    10. Amethyst

      Heartening for mothers of babies and young children who feel at a loss for how to recapture their own mind throughout the constant interruptions of motherhood.

    11. Miranda

      Worth reading. I wish the book had been professionally copyedited. The proliferation of typos and small grammatical errors were distracting.

    12. Fabiola Sandoval

      I loved this book it's been a while since I read it and I strongly recommend it, especially to new mamas.
