Lord, Have Mercy Book Review

This book had my attention the minute I flipped it over and read the back cover...
"Just when you think you’ve got this wife and motherhood thing down . . .Your toddler expresses his inner Picasso on your freshly painted walls . . . In permanent marker. Your 14-year-old demonstrates her newly acquired modeling skills . . . via every social network known to man. Your husband pulls up in a new car that you can’t afford . . . and only has two seats. Lord, have mercy. What are they thinking?"
...... story of my life!!! Well, not quite, instead of a toddler I have a 7 yr. old daughter and "mess" is her middle name! And my teenager is almost sixteen - but other than that.... it's pretty much right on! .....and my hubby loves pulling in the drive with a mustang.... at one time we had 3 of them, all at the same time. Right now he's talking about a new truck, or RZR for him and the kids, so one or the other will probably be pulling in the drive any day now!!

When this book came In the mail! I was in love with it! The front and back cover is pretty much my life.... right down to the teen selfies, on social media, the boy plays on a tablet or looking at ATV magazines, the youngest is always noisy.... thankfully we are out of the baby stage, but she is a loud little girl and then me.... most days I feel like burying my head, giving this whole mom thing up and trying again another day!!!

I love the cover of this book so much, I recreated it, with my family.... 
picture coming soon.....

I have to say though, upon reading the book, I was a really somewhat disappointed. I was expecting it to be written from a mom still in the thick of raising young kids, not from someone with kids already grown. While the book did have good points, I felt a disconnect with the author.... so for all the emotion that I feel when I look at the cover, I'm gonna cherish my recreated family portrait and pass the book on to someone who can get more use out of it then me....

This book, just wasn't what I expected.
