Mom records her baby's milestones, but what about her own? Where is the celebration of mom's transformation?

Beginning with one-day-old mom, who may feel like she is learning a new language, Mom Milestones is a love letter to the myriad ways moms grow and adapt to motherhood. Here are significant firsts: First sleepless night. First walk with baby. First mom friend. Skills learned--how to soothe baby (sometimes); how to coax a preschooler into taking medicine. Mom's likes (adapting pop songs to lullaby format; gathering intelligence from other moms) and dislikes (emptying the lunch box with mystery smells; requests for video games). There's Bedtime: The Board Game; crafts mom enjoys (no glitter or glue, thanks!); and the ABCs of motherhood (E for ennui).

While there might not be a road map for motherhood, Mom Milestones tracks both the memorable and slightly forgettable guideposts along the way--sunrises, snack plates, cuddles, laughter, and astonishment--because, as the saying goes, the days are long, but the years are short.
