Do you ever feel bombarded with unrealistic expectations for parenthood? Pinterest, Mommy Blogs and carefully crafted Facebook posts can make us feel a bit inadequate at times. Or worse, like we're failing all together! It's nice to have a breath of fresh (and real!) air to clear our heads and remind us that parenting is messy! We're only human.

Written by

Family Storytelling, Book Cover, WonderA few books have been said to change people’s lives. There are always classics on the list, The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Giver, Pride and Prejudice, The Diary of a Young Girl are just a few. Harry Potter became a sensation to readers and writers alike, changing the audience of many books. A few of my other favorites on the list are The Help, The Book Thief, The Fault in our Stars, The Hiding Place and Unbroken. One book from 2013 has joined the list: Wonder by R.J. Palacio.
