5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Sweet Oct. 31 2012
By B. Berry - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful read. May 3 2012
By S. Goff - Published on Amazon.com
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money May 4 2012
By Stella Hella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The only good that came from buying this was finding out that Kindle allows returns within 7 days. All of the content is available on her website for free in the archives. Oh, and in the book description above, "disarmingly honest" should be changed to "uncomfortably sarcastic."
