I was expecting 100 ways of simplifying life with kids...you know, mom hacks and such. Out of the whole book, I got 1 decent one...having my kids put their clothes directly into mesh bags so I'm not having to figure out whose socks belong to whom.

Written by someone without children this offered little practical advice and was generally quite annoying. I suspect the author really thinks you ought not to have kids in the first place if you truly want to simplify your life. This view has some validity but is not so helpful to those of us who,you know,already went and had kids and have grown quite fond of them ;)

This book isn't very insightful. Perhaps I should take it as a compliment that we already do most of the suggestions she gives. I guess our lives are as simple, fun, and easy as we can get right now! :)
