I Love Being a Mom

Treasured Stories, Memories, and Milestones

by Therese J. Borchard ’94 (Doubleday)


A celebration of the magic of being a mom, from the stretch marks that never go away to the boundless joy a child brings. Essays, vignettes and short quotes—both poignant and funny—combine to shine a light on the life lessons being a mother offers. Contributors, mothers famous and not-so-famous, include Anna Quindlen, Celine Dion, Laura Bush, Anne Lamott, Sarah Jessica Parker, Alice Walker, Mary Lou Retton, Reba McEntire and Marie Poyer, mother of 14. Photos and drawings complement the text.
