Motherhood can be an isolating experience, but Mom Milestones will make new parents feel seen, encouraged, charmed, and loved. From the horrors of toddler meltdowns to the sweetness of bedtime kisses. From crying in the bathroom to reclaiming your identity, every new mom will find something to relate to, and something to laugh at, in this heartfelt, funny book that covers first becoming a mom through starting elementary school.
