Before you know it, that sweet little baby you hold in your arms today — will be driving away “tomorrow.” You don’t want to be standing in your doorway, waving good-bye, wondering what happened to the time….
The days are long, but the years are short. MAKE TIME TO CONNECT!
Make a loving connection with your children at the end of every day by reading this bedtime story. As you snuggle together they will hear again and again … there’s nothing you’d rather be than mommy!
♥ ♥ ♥
Habits are overcome by habits, and the habit of reading a bedtime story provides the opportunity to pause and be present in your children’s lives.
We designed this sweet storybook to help you overcome the waves of daily distractions by anchoring you in a daily ritual.
Hug them tight. Stare into their little eyes. Wash away the strain of the day with loving words of affirmation.
Make a memory that will build them up in a world that tries to tear them down.
We also created a COLORING BOOK edition so you can enjoy an artistic activity with your little ones — or big ones, too. You’re never too old to need a mother’s love!

“What could be better than being your mommy? Popular author Stacy Farrell says that nothing could be more important or fulfilling than the great privilege of being a mother to her babies. As I read through this picture book, I felt my ‘mommy-emotions’ rise up, confirming every word on the pages as my own reality, too. Baby feet, very little sleep, burps and spit-ups, messy diapers and all, who could trade it for even the most exciting lifestyle this world could possibly offer in exchange? Not me. All mommies will agree: this book is precious. And the illustrations within will hold any baby’s interest as Mommy reads affirming words of truth and sacrifice that can only come from a mother’s heart. Read this to your little ones; they’ll love snuggling up and hearing it.”

The stunning photos coupled with the sweetest phrases of a mother’s love for her child made this little book endearing and special immediately. We laughed out loud, we shared tender moments, and learned a few things in the course of reading this short book (“What’s Mars Mama?”). Daniel (age 4) and I give our happy endorsement.”

“In all my years of mothering a house full of children, during all the triumphant days and even the most frustrating ones, I’ve never wanted my kids to feel as if I wished I were someplace else, doing something else.
