Dallas Louis: April 26, 2012

“A Mother’s Day Must Read…”  –  Bill Martinez  –  


You Might Learn Something From Author’s New Book


What do you get when you mix a crawling toddler, a screaming baby and a sudden craving for pickles and ice cream all over again?

A full-time job.

Some people call it “parenting.” But stay-at-home mothers everywhere know it’s an intense roller coaster of constant chaotic sounds… The pitter-patter of adorable, yet never-ceasing, little feet… Things getting broken… Emotional ups and downs… All in addition to the regular duties, chores and responsibilities of a normal American household.

For those who might not understand (we won’t mention any names of individuals who happen to be at odds with Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s wife Ann right now), it’s worth picking up the brand new book from wife, mother and author Dallas Louis.

The Mommy Diaries: How I’m Surviving Parenting Without Killing Anyone is a snapshot into the crazy, daily life of Louis who, like many other voters, works three shifts a day as an American mom.

She’s the life-bearer of three kids who all arrived within twenty-six months of each other. Combining that with later home renovation projects and surviving multiple ER visits, all the while still maintaining a relationship with her husband, Louis has lived through enough moments of her own to share with her readers her tears and fears through laughter, and often times, the act of surviving the early years by sheer, dumb luck!

Her book, The Mommy Diaries, is poised to have people everywhere rolling off their respective couches with chuckles and heaving sighs of exasperation at the thought of how demanding the profession of motherhood really is.

Dallas Louis grew up in Austin and now lives in Houston, but she has enough hilarious stories to fill the entire state of Texas.

Dallas is past the early, just-trying-to survive parenting days when she had a newborn and two toddlers all under the same roof (that’s three in diapers for anyone keeping tabs). But her two sons and daughter–now eight, nine, and ten-years-old–are still as entertaining and accident-prone as ever.

Once a Field Leader for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International, Dallas now travels the country, speaking to women’s groups, encouraging them in their faith and strengthening their ministries. She also leads a weekly Bible study group.

Dallas’ first book, Girlfriends, Giggles & God, is a 31-day humor-filled devotional, reflecting upon circumstances that arise in every woman’s household. Her second book, The Mommy Diaries: How I’m Surviving Parenting Without Killing Anyone, is a snapshot into her crazy, daily parenting life. Taking a look at the birth of her three kids in a time span of twenty-six months, multiple ER visits and living through a home renovation project, Dallas shares her humor with her readers!

Despite her hectic, exhausting life, Dallas routinely wakes at before dawn to take advantage of the early morning stillness, and admits that’s when her inspiration strikes best. She lives in Houston with her husband and three children. Find her online at: www.DallasLouis.net
