After years of infertility and then successfuly being blessed with our wonderful family, I'm truly not looking to compare my life with hers or any others, I'm looking to share in the good, frenzied, funny, difficult and realistic moments that any mother shares this day and age. I'd love to sit down with Kathryn and talk one on one with her---I'm sure she's faced the mundane struggles the rest of us have, and it would be nice to hear about it without quite as much frosting---that's all.
She does seem really nice, intelligent and thoughtful... and I bet I'd love having her as my neighbor or friend.... but I just can't help but be disappointed. My heart broke when she said she didn't breastfeed....and that's when she finally lost credibility for me. I think she's an example of the lie so many American women tell themselves - that you can "have it all." It's just not true ....something's got to give. I kept wondering how much attention her kids really get. I'm glad her life works so well for her but it sure isn't how I want to raise my family. I guess it all comes down to priorities and I just don't agree with some of hers. If you do agree with her, you'll probably love the book.
