Habits of happy mothers: What are yours?

Are you a happy mom? Do you sometimes feel like "doing your best" is never enough to please everyone?

In her new book, "The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers," pediatrician and mom-of-four Meg Meeker writes about how many mothers have lost the joy in daily life — and how they can get it back. Her tips include:

-Understand your value as a mother.
-Maintain friendships with women.
-Make time for solitude.
-Stop competing with other moms.
-Find ways to live simply.

TODAY will soon be speaking with Meeker about her book. What do you think? Are you happy as a mother, and if you are, what are your secrets? What are your "habits of happy mothers"?
