When Your Centerpiece is Made of Play-Dough and the Dog Has Eaten Your Crayons - Jennifer Koontz (2012)

When you see parents out and about with their babies, life looks pleasant but it isn't until you actually have a little one around in your life that you discover that motherhood really isn't easy. Sleep deprivation, the tantrums and crying, fussy feeders ... and all those dirty nappies. However, the positives always outweigh the negatives and bring forth the joy of being a mother. Mother Jennifer Koontz has written a book about her experiences and how her journey started at the local airport when her daughter was nine months old since Jennifer and her husband adopted. Jennifer talks about the good times, the bad times and even some ugly times. This is a light-hearted look at parenting that also contains many practical suggestions for managing all the challenges that come along with being a parent. It is the definitive guide to raising a self-sufficient, well-mannered child, while keeping life in perspective and maintaining a sense of humour. (PP)
