it was amazing

I really enjoyed this book- written from the prospective of someone who finds themselves shocked and amazed to be performing the role of "mother" Lammott grinds her way through her son's first year with humor and brutal honesty. While I hope I don't think about leaving my son on the porch overnight so that I might gain a few more hours of sleep, I appreciate the author's honesty about her wishes to do so, and am sure that I will sympathize even more once the little guy is finally on this side of the door.
