Author does a great and hilarious job of capturing the exuberance of motherhood and childhood, the joys and concerns involved. I wonder if it would help someone who is convinced they don't want children, because people who don't might get a glimpse of how your world changes where there is a little person who is so attached to and beloved by you that you put yourself second. Nothing like it!
