Davis, friend write ‘The Momma Guide’

Davis is originally from Washington state, she said, but has lived in Texas for the last seven years, and in Mills County the last nine months.
She currently lives here with her husband, Tom, and two daughters, Laurel, 13, and Taylor, 6. She grew up in a small town with a farming and ranching family.
She previously owned TLC Cleaning for more than 10 years, and now runs the Tan Yer Hide and Tone It Too! She is also a past rodeo queen and has been actively involved with 4-H and FFA.
Davis’s co-author, Holleman-
Perez, also grew up in Washington and was involved
in rodeos, ranching, 4-H and FFA. She and her husband, José, live in Ellensburg,
Wash., with their twins, Riley and Macenna. She holds a BA in speech communications, public relations and marketing. She and her husband have owned and operated a DJ/karaoke company for nearly 15 years, and she also does freelance graphic design work.
Davis referred to as a “self-help book.”
Both women have two children, Davis said, adding
the book is not just for moms. It is a guide to “Momma,” however, she said, noting it is “not a kid guide.”
“The Momma Guide” covers an array of topics — from how to run a household,
health issues, kids and school, death and divorce, all the way to dealing with the empty nest.
Davis laughed saying, most of the copies they’ve sold so far have been to men. Those who have read it so far seem to love it, she added, saying the books has already garnered great reviews.
This is the second book for Davis, who has also had a book on running a cleaning
service, “A Cleaning Business Maid Simple,” published by the same publishing
house that did “The Momma Guide.”
“The Momma Guide,” was released Sept. 21, Davis said, and is available by visiting
paperback-book/the-momma-guice/7563484. It’s also coming soon to

The Momma Guide ~ feature story in Abilene Reporter news! (also later in the Corpus Christi newspaper as well)

Being a mom is a difficult task as the job description changes frequently over time, especially in a single-parent home. Everything becomes a struggle, sometimes leaving a mother with few choices and a lot of questions.

This is why Traci Davis, who lives in Goldthwaite, and Vicki Holleman-Perez decided to write their book, “The Momma Guide.”

The book addresses everything from birth, depression, divorce, death, diet and nutrition, finances, tips on dating and even how to deal with cross-cultural issues within the family unit.

Her approach for this self-published book was simple; it is written by mommas for mommas. Both authors are 38, and each has two children.

The great thing about the book, Davis said, is that it not only deals with child-related issues but also offers tips on how moms can take care of themselves as well.

She uses an airplane analogy to describe why moms should always take care of themselves first. Before flight, attendants instruct passengers about the oxygen masks that drop out of the ceiling if the cabin should lose pressure.

“They always tell you to put on your mask first and then start helping everyone around you,” she said. “It’s the same thing with being a mother. How are you going to take care of the children if you can’t first take care of yourself?”

Davis, whose first book was “A Cleaning Business ‘Maid’ Simple,” is a rodeo queen turned entrepreneur. While she holds no formal degrees in child-related fields, she said her real-world experience was the most valuable asset she had in writing the book.

Her husband, Rob, was killed in a car accident in the late 1990s. The tragedy left her and her two girls, Laurel and Taylor, to survive on their own. From that moment on, Davis learned how to manage her finances, start her own business and, most importantly, how to come out on the other side of a tragedy with children intact.

Holleman-Perez lives in Ellensburg, Wash., with her husband, Jose, and their twins Riley and Macenna. She holds a bachelor’s degree in speech communication and public relations and is an entrepreneur as well. She said that she had always wanted to write a book, and she thought the collaboration with her lifelong friend, Davis, was a good fit.

Davis and Holleman-Perez have known each other since elementary school in Othello, Wash., and have swapped advice ever since. When they became moms, the advice was less about guy trouble and more about the kids. When their children were sick or facing some other issue, Holleman-Perez said, they would do some research and compare notes. Over time, they had compiled enough information to fill a book.

As time went on and they had a chance to quiz other mothers about what they thought of the project, the idea was received with open arms as most women felt they were alone.

While the book’s audience is mainly focused on new moms as well as more experienced mothers, Davis said fathers and grandparents alike will get just as much out of the book as anyone else, especially since more grandparents seem to be taking the lead in child-rearing these days.

“We wrote this book because so many moms think they are alone, and we want them to know that they’re not,” Davis said.

The only major roadblock the two authors had in writing the book, Holleman-Perez said, was the distance between them.

With Davis living in Goldthwaite and Holleman-Perez in Washington state, everything had to be done via e-mail, but the experience has brought them even closer together.

The duo hope to continue their collaboration on another project, which should be a continuance of “The Momma Guide.” Since there was so much information to offer, they had to find a stopping place to complete the project. Still, Davis said, just about every topic they could think of is touched on in the guide’s 445 pages.

“It’s like that Prego commercial you always see on television,” Davis said. “It’s all in there.”

Moms get help from former residents

By Briana Alzola ~ April 12, 2010

Staff writer

From heating up bottles to dropping the kids at soccer practice to dealing with whiny teenagers … sometimes, even the best parents need a little help.

That’s where “The Momma Guide,” written by former residents Traci Davis and Vicki Holleman-Perez, comes in.

“It is packed full of information,” Davis said. “It’s from conception to empty nest. It covers it all.”

The authors met when they were in grade school and have remained close friends, Holleman-Perez said.

“We grew up riding horses together,” she said.

Holleman-Perez said both had previous interest in writing and so after chatting about the subject, they decided to write something together that would be useful for others.

They wanted to let parents know everyone gets frustrated, Davis said.

“There are people out there who are going through the same things you are or have already gone through them,” she said. “We wanted to get that point across. You are not alone.”

Davis said during one part of the book, the authors compare parenting to being on an airplane.

“The stewardess tells you if the air mask releases, you have to put it on yourself before you help those around you,” she said. “It is the same with motherhood. If you are gasping for air, you are no help to anyone else.”

a1mommajumpEach person needs to realize they can put themselves first, Davis said. If each parent is able to take the time to take care of themselves, they will be more helpful to their family and friends.

While the title of the book is directed to moms, both parents could benefit from reading it, Davis said.

The advice is relevant for children of many ages, too, she said.

Davis said although children are key, it is important for parents to get time for themselves, too. In the book, the authors suggested some free and easy activities that would allow parents to take a break, she said.

“There are steps to help you find time for yourself,” she said. “If you are stress-free, you’re a better parent.”

While there are other parenting books out there, Davis said this book was a way to get all the information needed in one place.

Holleman-Perez described the book as a coffee table book, a resource guide for parents.

“You don’t have to read it chapter by chapter,” Holleman-Perez said. “When something comes up, you can just go to that subject.”

Davis lived in Othello throughout her childhood, was crowned the Othello Rodeo Queen in 1988 and graduated from OHS in 1990. She went to away for college but came back to Othello and lived here until she moved to Texas about seven years ago.

Holleman-Perez said her dad was a veterinarian in Othello during the ‘70s and ‘80s. She lived here through grade school and resides in Ellensburg with her family now.

Growing up with Davis, Holleman-Perez said, the two have several similarities in their background, but there are many differences, too. This means the advice in the book is varied and accessible for a much wider audience, she said.

While there are no specific plans for another book, Holleman-Perez said she and Davis have spoken about perhaps writing a second part of the book.

“You never know what we might come up with,” she said.
