"I think every mother can relate to these feelings. I loved the author's
humor and thought provoking perspective!" reader review (Debanair) --Barnes & Noble
From the Author
An avid reader, I believe we have much to learn about the world, and ourselves, through explorations of the written word. Books are the threads of timeless human connection, and I strive, at least in some small way, to touch others through my writing.
This book collection started before I ever managed to concieve my first child (a task that took five years) and has grown along side of my children. From pregnancy to the later child-rearing girls, I've offered up my thoughts and feelings on being a young, contemporary woman with children. I haven't shied away from a thought because of what people might think, and as such I didn't want to edit the essays contained here very much, for fear of whitewashing my original intentions. I do hope you find something helpful, or comforting in this collection. Being a mother may be packed full of playmates and such, but most mothers edit their thoughts and feeling for fear of being a "bad" mom. That is why I wrote this book as honestly as possible, so that readers could see they are not alone!
