Children bring a crisp perspective to love and joy, and a raw fragility to what's truly important in life.
And it's difficult to take yourself too seriously when you constantly have an entourage in the bathroom with you, handing you toilet paper, or struggling to get past your precariously placed leg to chew on the toilet paper.
Actually, the fact that this book exists at all, while I'm down in the trenches of motherhood with two extremely active little ones, is a true testament to the inspiration of children; of spending day-in and day-out with them.
What you hold now in your hands is a little piece of my heart.
But this book is not only for my kids, it's for you.
It's for any grown-up who believes in love and second-chances, forgiveness and that it is true that the best things in life are free. Except that kids kind of do cost a lot of money. But they're worth it. Here, just read this.
