The writing will make you seriously laugh out loud, cry and then laugh again. Melanie Shankle has an incredible way of making the everyday life of a mom extraordinary. This is a book I'd buy for every mom-to-be, new mom, and experienced mom from this time forward. It's a joyful journey into motherhood. There were many times I had to read entire chapters to my husband because he wanted to know what was making me laugh so hard! She always brings her analogies back to the heart of God and makes each story applicable to every women longing to live for Jesus. I absolutely loved it!
Jessica BatesAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Fun easy read for Moms in the midst of chaosAugust 30, 2013Jessica BatesAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Sparkly Green Earrings is a wonderful memoir by Melanie Shankle, author of the Big Mama blog and a regular contributor to ThePioneerWoman.com. She is fun and witty as she recounts her experiences with getting pregnant and having her first child. She talks about the infant years, preschool, expectations of other parents, and how becoming a mom changed her. She has a wonderful sense of humor and is candid and honest about her journey as a mom.
Chapter titles include "I Wanted My Epidural in the First Trimester", "That Time I Didn't Sleep for Four Years" and "Potty Training:Bringing People to Their Knees Since Forever". She recalls incidents where she went crazy and to great expense creating a shoebox float for a yearly celebration for her daughter's preschool and it ended up being paled in comparison to other parents crazy creations. This is a great, fun, easy read that will have you laughing right along with her. I really enjoyed how honest she was and how much I could relate to her stories. As a mom, I really liked this book.
