    Loved it

    I found this in the store and then ordered a second online for my friend. I am a single mom to a beautiful boy and this book serves as a good reminder of what is expected and "normal". I bought the second for my girlfriend who just had a son after two daughters. Very heartfelt wisdom.

    First Time Mother

    I purchased this book for my daughter-in-law who became a first time Mother on December 31st. Anyone who has raised or is raising boys can relate. Definitely worth the purchase price. A great Baby Shower gift too.
