I Quit! Oh wait, I'm the Mom
A practical guide to finding your joy again
by Michelle McVittie

What is the number one priority of being a parent? Taking care of yourself!

If you’re constantly on the run, never seem to have enough time, and frequently feel overwhelmed, this little book could save you and your family. Today is the day you start taking care of yourself again. This is not a selfish act; it’s self-preservation. When you take care of yourself you will be a better mother and partner, and a happier version of yourself. 

Being a mom doesn’t mean a loss of identity. Being a mom is part of your identity. It’s just not all of it. Stop just surviving and start living your life. If you are ready to make a change, this book will give you the practical tools to get there. Take it one step at a time. You can do this!

Michelle McVittie is a child life specialist, a parenting expert, mental health professional, and educator with over twenty years of experience. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Child Life Studies diploma, both from McMaster University. In addition to being a wife and mother, Michelle is currently a Parenting Educator in a pediatric healthcare setting. She provides educational courses and skills training workshops to caregivers, professionals, and children age 8–16 years old on a variety of topics, including self-care, stress management, communication, mental health topics (such as ADHD and anxiety), difficult behaviour, and parenting. She writes a parenting blog and creates charts and visuals to build life skills and independence in children. I Quit! Oh Wait, I’m the Mom! is her first book.
