Book Description:

Mommy Memoirs is a delightful journey from pregnancies and births to marriages and a hysterectomy! There are few stones left unturned as author Ann Van De Water describes her hectic life as a mother of three boys in short read-it-and-run stories that will have her audience laughing out loud one minute and grabbing tissues the next. These true-to-life experiences filled with humor, tenderness, practicality, and joy, written by a “been there, done that” mom, will have other moms and grandmothers reminiscing and expectant moms anticipating their own adventures. All will come away knowing they are not alone on their journey through motherhood.

From the Author:

I wrote this memoir for very personal reasons.  My own mother, Pauline, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at the young age of 56 and lived with the devastating disease for 20 years.  It tore our family apart.

My memories of life as a mom are now down in written form, for moms at all ages and stages to enjoy.  My husband asked, as we entered the "empty nest" stage of our parenting, what I had put on the back burner all those years that I wished I could do and I didn't hesitate before answering, "I want to write a book".  What better topic than motherhood~ I had devoted 26+ years to being a mom...and I wanted to write this book in honor of my own mother.  I dedicated it to her, my husband and our three boys and then the book wrote itself. 

You will see yourself in my stories and I hope you can laugh as you reminisce about your own experiences of mothering. It's always nice to know there is someone just ahead on the adventure who is willing to share her own stories and walk beside you on the journey.  Come catch of glimpse of what mothering was like for me, understand how important it was to always keep a sense of humor as each day unfolded, and enjoy a chuckle and perhaps a tear or two.  Every mom has her stories to tell...these are mine.
