Interview with a mom who recently published a book.

I'm always inspired by moms who find time to write, edit, and revise an entire book. Meredith Peters Hale accomplished all that as well as having her book published. I asked her to join my blog by answering a few questions. Thank you, Meredith!

What inspired you to write this book?
As I admit in the introduction to Mommy A to Z, this was never the book I envisioned myself writing. In college I always dreamed I’d write some literary masterpiece, along the lines of Milan Kundera or Albert Camus (my idols back in my twenties, when my idea of a good time was staying up all night discussing nihilism, with Dark Side of the Moon humming along in the background). Instead, when I sat down to write this great work of literature, I found myself writing about...sippy cups. And that’s when I realized that my life was no longer about existential crises and psychedelic ‘70s rock. I was living a new reality—one that that involved diapering a baby determined to dive off a changing table. Or farm puzzles that quacked for no reason at 4 a.m. Or laundry that multiplied every time I came within three feet of it. This was my new reality, and I couldn’t imagine writing about anything else. Because, somewhere along the way, I had fallen in love with motherhood, just as I had fallen in love with my daughter—unexpectedly, completely, and with my whole heart and soul.
