Growing Girls: The Mother of All Adventures BAD041


From struggling with the issues of race and identity as she raises two children adopted from China to taking her daughters to the mall for their first manicures, Jeanne Marie captures those magic moments that make motherhood the most important and rewarding job in the world - even if it's never been done right. For, as she concludes in one of her three a.m. worry sessions, feeling like a bad mother is the only way to know you're doing your job.

Whether confronting Sasha's language delay, reflecting on Anna's devotion to a creepy backwards-running chicken, feeling outclassed by the fabulous homeroom moms, or describing the rich, secret language each family shares, these candid observations from the front lines of parenthood are filled with love and laughter - and radiant with the tough, tender, and timeless wisdom only raising kids can teach us.
