    Default Buddhism for Mothers?

    Anyone read this? Saw it in the bookshop the other day and was thinking I might get DH to get it for me from Santa

    I've read it, it's a nice, calming, relaxing read. Another good one is "What mothers do: especially when it looks like they're doing Nothing" by Naomi Stadlen

    Someone, somewhere was telling me about this the other day, and how brilliant it was. Can't recall who, but it was someone who lives in the credible column of my social circle.

    I borrowed it from a friend and thought it was fantastic.

    I bought it when my DD was a bub, and I have read it cover to cover twice, and have read select chapters or sections at various times when I required inspiration. I love it.

    Hmmm, my MIL gave it to me so i automatically disregarded it, took it as an underhanded insult and then pushed it to the back of my bookshelf.

    Maaaaybe i might pull it out and have a quick look.

    Nope, just... can't... bring... myself... to... do... it!

    Damn it Audax, you beat me to it LOL

    Thanks ladies!! Am going to let DH know that's my Xmas sorted! Hehe.

    Dusty, I can wait that long as I have about 5 other books on my night stand that are all part read. Hehe, I'm a shocker for having more than one (or more than 4) books on the go at any given time!

    Yep I have this one also but haven't started it!

    I started "buddhism for mothers" but then put it down and started another one (I tend to do this ALOT with books LOL!!!!).....but so far it's good!!!

    i really enjoyed it. the biggest thing I took away from it was to remember to live in the moment and BE present. I was spending most of my days on autopilot which is a was a waste. Staying mindful really helps me stay peaceful and clear.
