Funny and Sweet Oct. 31 2012
By B. Berry - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you haven't read dooce dot com you are surely living under a rock. Heather is the funniest writer I have ever read. She has a talent of taking the most mundane moments of motherhood and making you laugh till you pee your pants. Each month from 8 weeks old to 5 years she writes a letter to her daughter marking major milestones from walking, first words, throwing food across the room, a parents weekend away. Her letters have a way of helping you laugh through the pain (in my case as my 6 month old twins are still not sleeping through the nights). Each moment is made to be treasured whether it be a sweet happy moment or the frustrating yet loveable moments in the middle of the night.

Enjoyed this book thoroughly. Took me back through the stages of raising my babies. I would recommend for anyone looking to travel back through the joys, challenges, love of motherhood.

Beautiful read. May 3 2012
By S. Goff - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a friend who is marrying a man with two children, one of whom is an eight year old daughter. The letters are an intimate look into the growing miracle that is the love between a parent and a child. Heather Armstrong could have penned these letters and put them in a box for her daughter. One day when the time was right she could have handed them to Leta as a gift, but I am glad she didn't. I am so happy she shared them because this book ends up being what so many of us wanted to say but didn't.

A very sweet read April 21 2012
By ClaireFrancoise - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a love-filled, honest memoir of Leta's first years. Even if you have never read or if you are a faithful follower, this will be great read. I flew through the months with a huge smile on my face. Through the tough beginning years of motherhood, This is as much Heather's coming of age story as it is a priceless chronicle of Leta's early years. Well worth reading.
