Ugh. Overwrought, strangely humorless, sentimental schlock. I'm baffled at the overwhelmingly positive reviews. Being an attachment-parenting mother to a super-sensitive child is no excuse for tedious memoir writing.

I was so baffled by all of those good reviews that I decided to give this another chance (also, it was the only book on my nightstand), and read another couple of chapters. I did manage to get past the strangely depressing beginning and find a little bit of humor (though it's still way overdramatic), but then it turned preachy and negative again. Sigh.
