Publisher's Summary

Hope, humor, and spiritual inspiration to families in the trenches of parenthood from the founder of Mom Babble.

Mary Katherine Backstrom spends her days mending booboos, conquering the boogie man, comforting heartaches, laughing at knock-knock jokes, cooking pancakes, throwing baseballs, and mopping muddy floors. In other words she spends her days relishing in the beautiful, constant noise that is a life with children.

In Mom Babble, Mary Katherine (MK) Backstrom, founder and personality behind the Mom Babble online community, offers up hope, humor, and spiritual inspiration to families in the trenches of parenthood. With laughter, crying, and eye-rolls, MK's oh-so-real essays about raising littles will delight all the not perfect, not always holy, not completely normal, messy, honest and wonderful moms that hear them. MK's conversational approach connects with listeners like dear friends cozied up on a coffee date.

she's the friend we need

I am sad that it's not longer. I could listen to MK tell me her life stories for weeks. She's gentle with herself, but points out the lessons she learned. I want to send a copy of this book to each of my mom friends, so they have a friend in a book handy at all times.

Great job!

This might be the first review I’ve ever written. I enjoyed this book. I think she did excellent job of narrating . I wish I would have had someone to encourage me when I was raising my children. I will take with me the reminder to give a gentle you’ve got this, When I see a mama struggle. God bless you MK! Keep up the good work

Motherhood to a tee!

Mary Katherine captures motherhood perfectly! We all have our ups and downs but wouldn’t trade it for the world! This book brings the joys and heartache of motherhood together while addressing very real things we all go through but don’t talk about! Can’t wait to see what MK publishes next!

This is a must read for all moms.

I loved this book so much . I laughed, I cried and then laughed some more. Mk is so relatable . So many of the scenarios she has written are very similar to things I’ve gone through with my own kids. She has a way of explaining a thought or a experience that you feel like your talking to a friend. This is a great read.

My favorite social media mom

I have followed & loved Mary Katherine for several years but have only just finally listened to the Audible book of Mom Babble today. I decided to purchase it on Jan 1 of 2021 to bring in my new year with a sprinkle of positivity. She is the warmth of the sun. She is absolutely loving with her words and stories. I felt tears streaming down my face several times because of her authenticity. She's the best friend I've never had but feel like I do. I cherish her for confiding & sharing her soul to us. We desperately need mom's like her in our corner. I recommend spending time reading or listening to this book. You won't regret it!
