Allie never thought she’d be trying to figure out how make money from home. Before marriage and children, she’d had expectations! She wanted to always pull her own weight financially, pay half of the bills, move up in her career. But now that she has a newborn, things are changing – her thought process is changing. New thoughts are flooding her mind. She doesn’t want someone else taking care of her baby!
Age Before Beauty is Allie’s story. And what a story it is! I immediately felt a connection with Allie – I could relate to her completely. She’s a new mom with all the same thoughts and insecurities that have been my world ever since my baby was born nine months ago. The struggle to find a way to make money at home, the fight to fit back into your pre-pregnancy pants, the love you feel for your little one – a love that completely changes you. And of course the sadness you feel when you leave your baby for the first time with another person (even if it’s your wonderful husband! lol). Add a very cruel mother-in-law who shows up on your doorstep uninvited and expects to be taken in for heaven-knows-how-long, and a get-rich-quick scheme that sounds too good to be true, and you’ve got Age Before Beauty, a light-hearted, laugh-out-loud, and oh-so-fun adventure into motherhood. This is a definite must for mothers (or anyone!) who need a break. It’ll make you laugh and help you see that you’re not alone in the world – we all need to laugh at our situations once in awhile! Thanks to Virginia Smith for this wonderful read! I can’t wait for more Sister-to-Sister adventures!
