Mother Daze


Tales from the Imperfect Playground

Throughout her stories of misplaced toys, temper tantrums, and experiences as a physical education teacher, Christine offers observations that will ring true with all mothers. In short, this book offers a virtual high five to women for the gazillion things they manage to miraculously get done.



Written in the voice of your best girlfriend, the one who is funny, optimistic, joyful and wise, with a get-a-grip perspective on parenthood, Mother Daze is a tribute to mothers and a hilarious wake-up call.  "This is a story based on the truth," writes Chris Carr, a mother of three and an Elementary School Physical Education teacher, whose Masters thesis revealed the negative impact of over-scheduling children.  Carr is no Super Mom and that is what makes her an expert.  Like the rest of us, she is sometimes crazed, often dazed but always in awe of mothers.  Mother Daze will brighten your early motherhood years and restore your sense of humor!

"This is the first "mommy" book I have read that is funny, real, AND makes sense!  I feel like Chris Carr is the no-nonsense kind of friend who understands what motherhood is really about...touching on all the issues...but without the whining!  I swear, reading this is better than watching a classic LIFETIME movie on a really rainy laundry day.  I feel empowered! (But I'm stopping at 2 kids.)"

"Christine Carr is your best girlfriend: funny, loving and true. Take her hand and laugh and cry through her wonderful book!"
