Ya'll remember my friend Mary at Owlhaven? Well, right now in her hot little hand is her book. No, I mean HER book. As in, she's the one who wrote it! A Sane Woman's Guide to Raising a Large Family is finished and awaiting its flight off the shelves.
Now I'd have probably posted about Mary's book nonetheless, but it just so happens she's having a little contest at her place to give away a few copies. Woo-hoo!
I also know what you're thinking: what the heck do I want with a book about raising ten kids?
First of all, tell me that my life with two kids won't seem just a little less...shall we say...stressed, if I employ some of her techniques for wrangling ten. If she can maintain her humor and sanity and still look good in the process, surely there are a few lessons to be learned by us moms of few.
Second, coming from a family of 11 myself, I think it could be an interesting perspective to think about what my mom went through raising us...and appreciate her even more than I already do.
So if you'd like to win your own copy of Mary's book, head over there now!
