5.0 out of 5 stars
mother shockingly good!, May 6 2003
There are a lot of good things about this book. It is written well--Ms. Buchanan has the gift of making every sentence feel like she is talking to you, personally. It is organized well--you can read this anywhere--at the park with the kids, in bed at night, on the plane...or sitting on the couch consuming it cover to cover. It's truthfulness and playfulness and candidness all come into play to create a book about parenthood that neither patronizes (matronizes?) or alienates the reader...we've all be been there...or we will be there soon!
It is a nice departure from the ghastly 'how to raise your baby' tomes and the sugary sweet 'lets talk about my motherhood days' books that have been foisted on us lately.
I have three kids of my own, I thought this book covered everything a book ought to!
NICE WORK and a MUST READ!
