Since I can't blog about the mini-crisis in my life, I might as well offer a Mother's Day treat to you all! Believe me, I will be sharing the crisis soon enough as there are some major changes for the Manic family comin'.
This one is for the moms, and hey, even if you’re not a mom, you can still enter and SEND your prize to a mother! So how’s that?
Motherhood is hard work. It’s often unrewarding and continuous, the only job I know of that’s 24/7, 365 days a year. Show me a mom who has gotten through the day and feels like she completed everything she had to do, and I’ll show you … a fictional character, perhaps Super Woman, because she is something practically non-existent. It rarely happens.
We are so busy in our lives taking care of our children, the house, careers, laundry, errands, and general up-keep it takes to raise a family, that I’m sure some of you get through the day and wonder if you’ve had time to use the bathroom or even eat. It’s a long, hard job many days.
In honor of Mother’s Day we’re giving away one copy each of the following titles to celebrate the wonderful mom in you:
"Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter"
"Chicken Soup for the Soul: Moms & Sons"
“Chicken Soup for the Soul: Power Moms” which features great author moms such as Heather Armstrong, Jodi Piccoult, Liz Lange and Jane Green. Here’s a video trailer:

And there’s MORE! For the chocolate lover in all of you, we’re giving away one box of dark chocolate rose pretzels and a glorious box of four White Chocolate Sweetheart Oreos® from Simply Put Gourmet!
There is one caveat though. We can ONLY ship these prizes in the US, so if you’re not in the US, I’m very sorry but you don’t get a chance on this one! I know, I know, don’t hate me! (Sorry especially Amanda!)
Just leave a comment on which ONE book you would most prefer and I’ll draw from all those entries on Mother’s Day:
Chicken Soup: Like Mother, Like Daughter
Chicken Soup: Moms & Sons
Chicken Soup: Power Moms
And the pretzels and Oreo pack will be awarded to one of the book winners as a grand prize!
Happy Mother’s Day!
