Product Description

About the Author

Four children into the game, Laura Pratt lays claim to the Mommy moniker with considerable pride. In her other life, she is a writer of some experience and reputation in Canadian journalism who contributes regularly to several Canadian publications (including Canadian Living, Today's Parent and Flare Pregnancy). Despite the fact that she writes on a variety of topics, Laura makes no effort to hide the fact that her children are her favourite subjects.

She has also been a contributor to three books on parenting: Understanding Your Teen: Parenting Strategies that Work; Raising Great Kids: The Complete Guide to Your Child's Health and Development; and Growing with Your Child, Pre-Birth to Age 5.

Laura lives in Toronto with her family.

Format: Paperback
Laura Pratt has quite a way with words--and she clearly loves her role as Mother. The author lets us get a glimpse into the "ordinary" world of mothering 4 children. Her descriptions of everything from the discomforts of pregnancy to a mother's mixed emotions on sending her eldest child to school for the first time will make any mother laugh, cry, and most of all, *appreciate* that someone has put into words so beautifully the way we often feel but can't always articulate. The writing is intelligent and honest; sentimental without being sappy. Highly recommended for any loving mother.

Format: Paperback
This is a book with something for every parent. Ms. Pratt shares stories that all parents can identify with, from the mad rush to the hospital (only to be told that you're still pregnant--go home), to the adventures of sorting legos and planning your life around your new addition(s).
A great gift for any expectant or experienced mom!

I just thought this was a fantastic book. I really saw my own life unfolding before my eyes as I turned the pages. The author, Laura Pratt, does a fantastic job of capturing the joys and sorrows of motherhood. And her words made me realize, more than anything else before, just how "fleeting" the "years" are.

I just love Ms. Pratt's style. This book will have you laughing and crying and nodding in agreement. And it's not just for moms--even my husband could relate to the chapter where Ms. Pratt describes a "real life hopped on pop". I'm planning to buy this book for all my favorite parents.

HASH(0xb5696294) out of 5 stars Truth, Wit, and Wisdom Aug. 11 2004
By Nicole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is no better timepiece than a child, or two, or four. Parents-to-be understand, intellectually, that time passes and your children grow before your eyes but Laura Pratt captures that whirlwind passage, writing with unflinching honesty and passion each little snapshot from her life as a mother. She uses lush description to perfectly capture, preserve, and report each touching vignette that she shares and the result is a book on motherhood that is by turns hilarious, insightful, and unrepentently sentimental. Highly recommended.
