Mom Milestones (with guest Grace Farris)

Mom Milestones (with guest Grace Farris)

When's the last time someone told you you were doing a great job as a mom just for keeping your kids alive? Can't remember? Grace Farris, writer and illustrator of the book "Mom Milestones" is here to tell us that we are doing a great job, even when we feel like we're not.

Wish someone would give you a pat on the back for keeping track of all the water bottles or knowing which dishes are dishwasher-safe? Grace Farris, author of "Mom Milestones," is here to give us moms the credit we deserve for the little things that no one else notices.

Grace Farris is a mom, doctor, and illustrator. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Vogue, BuzzFeed, and Cup of Jo. The New York Times' Wirecutter called her book Mom Milestones “an affirming read for new moms in particular, a literary road map of the very-hard-but-very-good path that lies ahead.”
