Hiding from the Kids in My Prayer Closet {Jessica Kastner}

hiding from the kids in my prayer closet jessica kastner
Soon after Jessica Kastner became a mother, she wondered if she was the only mom who found pretend play more boring than watching playdough harden and who dreaded yet another friend s Instagram post of homemade deliciousness. 

In Hiding from My Kids in the Prayer Closet, Kastner shares her experience as an unmom a mom who loves her kids more than she loves the daily experience of mothering. She helps readers laugh at the ridiculous, delight in the unpredictable, and enjoy being the mothers God made them to be.

My Thoughts:
Wow! I'm not the helicopter, lovey-dovey, play-in-the-floor mom that many of my peers are, but at least I can find something great to say about being a mom each and every day.

I honestly thought this book was going to be a self-help type book full of advice on how to cope as an unmom, and tips for praying for our kids. Instead, it is a collection of essays complaining about motherhood. Being a mom is tough, I get it. But this is just over kill about all the horrible things about being a parent. I hope these poor kids never read this book when they are older because they are going to be so disappointed in finding out how their mom thought of them.
