"I don't pull punches or hold back in this book, because I am writing to myself as much as to you. If something in this book strikes a little close to home for you, know that it struck in my home first. I am not writing about other people's problems, although I know many of them are common. I write about what I know, and what I know is the challenges, the joys and the work involved in raising little people."
In this follow-up to Loving the Little Years, Rachel Jankovic pushes her parenting 'field notes' out onto the skinny branches of motherhood. Fit to Burst is chock-full of humourous examples and fresh advice covering issues familiar to every mom such as: - Guilt cycles - Temptations to be ungrateful or bitter - Learning how to honour Jesus in the mundane things
But this book also addresses less familiar topics, including the impact that moms have on the relationships between dads and kids, the importance of knowing when to laugh, and more.
