Motherhood sometimes seems as though it's not all it's cracked up to be. Sleepless nights, baby fat, encrusted bits of spit up clinging to my clothes and hair...not exactly what I'd pictured it as being. Sometimes I wonder where the real Virginia went - the person I used to be before I was just someone's wife or mother. Now I find out that a hot young girl is after my husband. Perfect. This is the life of a mother. It's real, and it's definitely nothing like a baby ad.

I would have loved to have seen the author extend the legnth!! It was a great story but it was too short and there was so much potential to make this into a full lengnth story. I laughed out loud and woke my husband when I first started reading and then found myself pretty ticked right along with Virginia. Author should seriously consider expanding on this story....she really has something going on here with what she has.

I picked this up because I was going through my Nook Library so fast (just after I got it) and I was running out of money to spend on books to read on it. This book is hardly a book. I think it was under 100 pages. I read it on a Sunday morning while I was still in bed. Unless you have an hour or two to kill, I wouldn't waste the time. There isn't even enough of the story to really be invested in the characters (which shows the writing isn't that great). Okay, the girl has kids. I think two (it's been awhile). She is married to a teacher. He has hot students that the girl is jealous of. The girl has a friend that has everything, and she is jealous that she is able to because she has no kids. In the end, the husband is the best husband ever (surprised?), and the best friend is pregnant. So much drama, so little time.

This is a great quick read. I was disappointed to discover it was only 44 pages, I wanted more!

I loved this story. It is so easy to relate to! I adopted my 2 kids a year ago and can easily relate! I laughed, I related, I got angry on Virginia's behalf! Fanatstic and also a concise read, truly something written by a mother for mothers!

Childproofed is the perfect rainy day read. Its not terribly long, which is good for time pressed mothers. The characters are well thought out and lovable. The protagonist, Virginia, is very easy to relate to. Her struggles are those of that the everyday mother and wife would face. Reese Reed was able to perfectly capture how a mother can go from being completely overwhelmed and angry at her toddler, to melted by a single smile or sentiment from the ornery tot. What can I say? I laughed, I cried, I loved it!
