5/10/12: Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms Review and Giveaway

CONTEST CLOSED: Congratulations bloomerbear
As a Mom we juggle quite a few duties however the most important part of being a Mom is having a happy family.  Learning to stress less about everyday issues is a key to this and now there is a community and a book focused on just this.  "Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Moms”.  Plus it is a perfect gift for Mother's Day.
It is so hard sometimes to let things go for me, however lately I have been really trying to take things day by day and stop worrying about things I can't control (weather, etc).  This is my way of trying to not sweat the small stuff.  I love a lot of the content especially Chapter 1 - There is no such thing as a perfect Mom.  I feel like we are often so worried if we are "doing it right" when in actuality there is no "right".  This took me a while to learn being someone that went to school for engineering and loving Math that always has constants like 2 + 2 = 4.  There is no ambiguity there, but in parenting there is.
I would love for you to join me in this community of Moms choosing happiness over stress.  
You can be an official Don’t Sweat Mom too, just go here: http://www.dontsweatmoms.com/ 
You can get the book on Amazon and Barnes and Nobles.
