Mothers are pulled in a million different directions while trying to give their kids fulfilling, productive, joyful childhoods. They mistake activity for happiness, and fill their kids' heads with information when they ought to be feeding their souls instead. This is a book for mothers who yearn to find a balance in their own and their children's lives. Through stories and suggestions, Katrina Kenison shares her insights into how to celebrate life's quiet moments, softly reminding busy mothers to pause and remember the deep sense of well-being that comes from a listening ear, an open heart, and a quiet little space carved out of time.

“Actually,” I said in a hushed tone. “I have a job interview next week.” I wasn’t sure why I was practically whispering. Was it really a secret? Perhaps it was because I wasn’t so sure of myself, and didn’t want to admit it out loud. Was I really ready to return to work? Rose paused, looked intently into my eyes, shrugged her shoulders and said, “Ah, the evolution of us.” In The Evolution of Us, each chapter contains an intimate portrait of a mother with young children. The portraits vary greatly, from middle class to working class women, stay-at-home moms and working moms, heterosexual and lesbian mothers, and a mother of a child with special needs. By sharing and reading the experiences of others, the hope is that we can move forward as a generation of women who support one another, and who can work together to create a more stable system of support for the next generation.
