HUG EACH MOMENT: Love Letters to Your Child

Join and I’ll send it to you via email today.

With beautifully illustrated questions on each page, HUG EACH MOMENT guides you in capturing your thoughts, memories and the precious moments of everyday life for you to share with your child in years to come. Over time, you will create a family treasure you and your child will cherish for ever more. And if you have more than one child, you can make one for each of them.

You can join us on Facebook as well. Here we share our questions, hopes and dreams as well as information, tips and more in an open, supportive way. Though we may parent differently, this is a place we can share and celebrate motherhood TOGETHER minus the mommy-wars type judgement. If a post is disrespectful, they are quickly corrected and invited back into the spirit of our page. (If they persist, they will be removed.) Ours is a SUPPORTIVE mommy circle.

There is no one right way to be mom. Let’s write our mommy manuals together, sharing our pages as we share our lives. Because the journey is so much sweeter when we take it together.


What MOMMIES are saying…

“I wish My Mommy Manual existed 8 years ago when I was desperately trying to figure out new mommyhood! It’s exactly the type of resource I needed. Even though I’m an “experienced” mommy now, your site still offers great support and advice.” (Edie)

“You have such awesome perspective! I know these things but don’t always remember. It’s good to see it written down! thanks Zen Mommy and My Mommy Manual!!!” (Donna)

“Your site is a wealth of information, insight and reflection. It enables me to pause and think about myself as a Mother and gain a deeper understanding of who I am and who I want to be for my children and husband. I have found myself remembering past blog posts and trying to put the principles into practice. Thanks for opening my eyes and heart to new, fresh perspectives.” (Jennifer)

My Mommy Manual is such a helpful site for me, a stay-at-home mom of two. Both the tips and inspirational posts are much needed in the crazy unbalanced life that we can sometimes lead. It’s like having a friend right there in your house all the time without having to call someone! (Carol)

“This is great information! Clear and concise – you managed to include a ton of info but it’s not overwhelming. Thanks! I’m taking notes.” (Kathy)
