The writing is so truthful. There were several bits that absolutely pierced my heart with poignancy. My kids are in their twenties, but the memories of our family when they were little came flooding back with every word April spoke. Plus, I loved her set design. It was spot-on accurate and reminiscent of when everything in my house was some form of large colored plastic.
What I didn't like
My overall impression
A realistic, relatable story about the dichotomy of motherhood ranging from never wanting to let your kids out of your sight to wishing they’d leave you alone for at least two seconds so you can go to the bathroom. April expertly sparks laughter through tears when she talks about how her life has evolved once she became a mother. I loved it.
