    1. I was drawn to this book because it said: "Crazy Confessions of a Helicopter Mom" on the front cover. As a mom myself I always like to learn about other moms, and there's just that connection as well that plays a huge factor. What I really enjoyed about this book is it isn't an ordinary self-help book. I wouldn't even really categorize it as a self-help book at all really, but the author does give some meaningful advice in tidbits throughout the novel. Mainly this is just the author telling her [...]


    2. I must start this review by saying that I have no idea why I chose this book from Booksneeze. I’ve never heard of ‘Days of Our Lives’, because I live in Portugal, so it wasn’t because I recognized Dena Highley and it isn't even because I'm a mom(aholic) because I'm not even a mom.So why choose this book? I don't know, but I really don't regret it.Synopsis:«Soap writer Dena Higley was all things to all people. A wife, mother of four, and head writer for Days of Our Lives, Dena ably hover [...]


    3. Well top of the morning to everyone today. I woke to a phone call from College Girl. She was filling me in on her next activity. Graduation is only a week and a half away. So proud for her. She is so nervous. So much to do. And of course I am dying to go and help her.Yeah, I confess.I am a Momaholic! Next week I will get to go and help her pack up her apartment and move her things back home for storage. I do not think she will be with us but a week or two at most before moving on. Either with a [...]


    4. **Full Review here**I enjoyed this book, I got a few chuckles and even thought about things I never thought of before. Now granted this book is written from a Christian perspective and the author discussed her faith a bit, but it wasn't a 'preach to the masses' kind of book, she simply shared how her faith helped her navigate through her life. Even as I read I took a few notes and these are the things that occurred to me while reading, many of them she answered and many more are for each of us t [...]


    5. I just finished reading Momaholic – Crazy Confessions of a Helicopter Parent by Dena Higley. I am not even sure why I picked this book from the lineup of available books to read from the Booksneeze program at Thomas Nelson. Maybe it was the most interesting? It sure wasn't about the cover, and it definitely wasn't pegged as fiction. I am not a mom of any sort, don't watch tv, never mind soaps so it wasn't because I knew Dena's name from there or knew I was a helicopter mom. But none the less, [...]


    6. I had high expectations for this book and I hate to say it, but I didn't like this book very much.Written by a Christian mom who had many challenges that come with raising special needs kids, going thru foreign adoption, and a teenage unwed mother for a daughter, you would expect to hear a few words about God or prayer.But other than a couple of cursory words , so we know she knows the Lord, we never hear anything more.I expected to hear about leaning on God, praying aloud for help when adopting [...]


    7. Disclaimer: I used to work for Dena Higley and I have met her family. They are a lovely, lively bunch. Dena was a good boss (at least to me) and an animated storyteller. That said, I enjoyed her memoir. It felt as if she was dispensing good natured advice over a cup of coffee. Dena's witty, warm and tough personality infuses this book. The intent of the book, I believe, was to act as a cautionary tale: Don't be a helicopter parent or else you will lose your idenity and add strain to your marriag [...]


    8. Don't bother reading this book. I read it as a book review and I was expecting something greatead I was like "what's so different about this mom than any other mom?" Nothing except that she was a writer for Day of our lives. Things happen to every mom. mom is exempt's just every day life. Definitely a book I will be giving away.At the end she basically said she wasn't working anymore and hoping that sales from the book would sustain her. Fat chance on that one. Don't waste your money on it.


    9. The two stars are for the first few chapters because they were interesting and I thought the book would really go somewhere. Unfortunately, it just went round and round and and then nowhere. The author vacillated between self-righteousness and self-hate. Ugh. Her advice seemed lame and stuff she wasn't taking seriously in her own life.


    10. Dena Higley normalizes the struggle that all moms--and parents in general--go through in protecting our children. But when is enough enough? Dena shows us that we don't have to be perfect to be good moms. I received this book from BookSneeze.
