This was truly a lovely book.
While I don’t have plans to have a baby any time soon, I do still find myself seeking out books like this.
Because…quite frankly, motherhood does scare me but I have a feeling that the more prepared I am, the easier it will be when it finally happens (fingers crossed).
This is one of the first books I read that really delved into the “scary” side of motherhood and didn’t just give platitudes (i.e. don’t worry! or you’ll be fine!).
I liked how this book addressed the scary thoughts without making them seem silly, illogical or false.
And that it acknowledged that everyone has those persistent negative thoughts towards themselves or other and gave a voice to them.
I really love this book and I feel like it’s going to be one that I keep for a long, long time.
A huge thank you to Familius for sending this one my way!
