I love how honest Cara is in this book. We have all seen too many picture perfect portrayals of motherhood, and all they do is pile on the guilt and shame. It's refreshing to have a book out there that's full of real stories about trying and failing, making mistakes and learning, hurting and forgiving. Through this book, I've enjoyed witnessing Cara's authentic, imperfect journey through motherhood. It makes me feel less worried about "screwing it up" and more comfortable about everything unfolding as a beautiful mess.
