Read in January, 2010

Here's the problem I have with Linda Eyre recounting her own experiences with raising about a gazillion children: Even though she talks about how parenting is hard and sometimes you're frustrated, etc., I always get the underlying message that actually it's all blissful and if you can't manage to always be cheery while raising an entire sports team, you just aren't good enough. I know it's not intended, but somehow it's what I get from her. So after about 20 pages of feeling guilty, I decided I didn't need that in my life anymore. I like other parenting memoirs better, though I can't pinpoint exactly what the difference is.
