Review & giveaway: Just let me lie down

Kristan Van Ogtrop`s book, Just let me lie down is a book aimed at moms who work, for moms who work from home, and moms whose work is home. I am none of those and I loved this book wholeheartedly. The only way I could describe this book is a menage of interesting stories and lessons categorized alphabetically. I think even those without children will love the book as much as I loved it! I wanted to keep it because there were parts that touched my heart, parts that made me laugh and things she had learned that made me think about my future and how to treat my owns kids if I ever have any.

But I did not keep the book because a relative of mine picked it up and asked who was reading it, so I passed it off to her because she has a four year old son and I`d rather somebody else get some joy out of it as well. It was a very interesting book that I hope to own again in the future.

The author is the editor of Real Simple magazine and has held positions at Glamour, Vogue, Travel & Leisure, and Premiere. She lives outside New York City with her family.

You had me at the title. Sometimes that is how I feel, only I am afraid if I do lay down, I will never get back up again. Yes, I could use this book.
