Moms Don't Have Time To Have Kids

A Timeless Anthology

Edited by Zibby Owens

JOIN AWARD-WINNING PODCASTER ZIBBY OWENS OF MOMS DON’T HAVE TIME TO READ BOOKS ON A JOURNEY FILLED WITH SLEEP, WRITING, WEIGHT LOSS, FRIENDSHIP, AND MORE.

Zibby Owens, host of the award-winning podcast Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books and a mother of four herself, created an online magazine in 2020 called We Found Time to help those struggling and stuck at home. Authors from all walks of life contributed to the themes of eating, reading, working out, breathing, and having sex, and the magazine eventually evolved into Moms Don’t Have Time To: A Quarantine Anthology.

But Zibby recognized that there are so many more things that moms don’t have time do, which are now included in Moms Don't Have Time to Have Kids: A Timeless Anthology. Zibby has curated five new categories of things moms don’t have time to do: sleep, get sick, write, lose weight, and see friends.
