really liked it
Read in June, 2008

A collection of personal essays about being the mother of a daughter. I read It's a Boy a few years ago, and loved it. This collection didn't resonate on the same personal level, I think because I haven't found really myself dealing with or reacting to Zoe's gender yet. (What I mean is, having a baby boy caused a lot of strong emotions within myself; having a baby girl was just something I accepted. I suspect this is more to do with my own growth as a parent than anything to do with the children, or their genders, per se.)

The thing is, it's still a great read, with deeply personal stories that resonate with broader truths.
