This rather quick read packs a lot in it's pages. As a mother I related a lot to the stories the author imparts about life with a busy family. As a teacher who has taught children with Asperger's it gave a unique insight to the special needs of these children. My children are older, and this brought back many fond memories for me. I hope to have many more adventures with my grandchildren to be.

Early Reviewer book from LibraryThing May 2012.

I cried, laughed, giggled, and smiled throughout this book! Melanie Simpson opens the door to her life as a mother of two - the good, the bad, the funny, and even the embarrassing. Mothers are going to see themselves and their children in her stories. I really enjoyed the lessons Simpson shared in her book. Thank you to Goodreads for giving me this book.

I loved this book! I don't have kids but I still really related to a lot of things she said about life in general. I laughed, I cried, and I giggled! :)
