|Sparkly Green Earrings: Catching the Light at Every Turn|
By: Melanie Shankle
Okay. Yall. Heres the thing about motherhood. Before I had a child of my own, it was super easy. I had a lot of opinions about the right way to discipline, the way my child would dress, and how she would never throw a fit in public or embarrass me at the grocery store. I also believed the entire experience would be sweet and clean and beautiful, like one of those baby lotion commercials. (Bless my heart.)
Then I had Caroline.
And you know what? Real motherhood is different. Its messier. Its complicated. And it is . . . So. Much. Better.
It breaks your heart and makes you laugh harder than you ever could have imagined. Its a little frightening. A lot gut wrenching. And quite possibly the most important thing you will ever do.
Thats what this book is aboutmy story about those fleeting moments that get swallowed up in the daily routine of car pools and soccer practice but come together in an indescribable way to make you a mama.
If youre looking for an expert on the subject of motherhood, then I suggest you put this book down immediately. But if you just need to know youre not the only person who has debated running away to a five-star hotel after spending hours helping your child with a school project, this is for you. (You are my people.)
If nothing else, I hope it will keep you warm at night knowing someone else shares your brand of crazy.
Melanie (aka Big Mama)
