I don't even know where to begin....each page of this book contains another piece of truth, a moment of time captured evocatively that speaks to my soul on a level I never thought a "stranger" could. All at once, her words make me laugh, cry, breathe sighs of relief and wish to hug her. This book is gold mine of must-read loveliness that I think any/every mama will enjoy as well as find truth in.

Thank you Lucy! I finally dont feel alone! I would open this book everytime I felt like a less than perfect mom. I could relate with almost all of it. Your humor would crack me up. You inspired me with your acceptance and perseverance. You kept it raw and real. I'm so grateful ♡. Consider me a total fan! Time to get my hands on your other books!

I loved it! I felt like she was writing exactly what is on my heart as a mother. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it was a little new-agey.

“Day surfing is the act of filling a day with no money, and no plans, seeing where you wash up: head into town, start at the library, then onto the pet shop, watch the road construction team working, a run in the park, listen to a busker. Day surfing is a much larger challenge at home, where it can often be white knuckle survival.” 1 likes
