I bought this book right after having my son and realized that motherhood isn't always the dreamy la-la land that I had imagined when I was pregnant. The title pretty much says it all -- the author finds motherhood to be a land filled with great and shining moments and not so shining moments. I loved that she writes about how real mothers are often ambivalent about being a mother at times -- and that is OK. Becoming a mother is total shock to your system; your world is turned upside down and inside out, and this was one of the books that I felt was closest to my experiences as a new mom and captured some of those "not so good" feelings about becoming a mother.
