We sometimes hear ...that Russell Baker is a 'national treasure.' I vote to include Barbara Holland in this treasure chest.

Every woman who ever had children, has them, or hopes to have them must read this book. Well written and entertaining, it had me laughing, crying, and savoring every word. This is life with children in all its agony, ecstasy, and everything in between but without sappiness. I have been recommending this book to EVERYONE within earshot. A perfect Mother's Day gift. Absolutely wonderful!!!
