Soapbox Saturday

Do all you mothers out there have this book?  I sure hope you do.  This is my very favorite children's book (minus the fact that it makes me cry everytime I read it).  I came upon it a couple of years ago.  The cover caught my attention and I read it in the store.  I had to have it.

It reminds me how fast the years go by with little ones.  I definitely get frustrated with my kids, but they are the most amazing thing I have ever been a part of.  I can't express in words all the desires and wishes I have for them or how I feel when I look at them.   
Anyhow, this one is worth buying.  Ask for it for mother's day.  Buy it for a new mom.  Buy it for your mom.  Love it.  Wear it out.

Have a great Saturday!

This is a great book and if you love this one you will also love "you are my wish come true" book. They have two versions... one for birth mothers (that keep the kiddos of course) and the other for adoptive mothers. Check it out!! :)

Love your blog... I am a new follower!

The book every mother should read to their kids is "My Most Thankful Thing." Go BUY IT NOW!!! and Cry as you read it to your kiddo!

I'll def go check it out. Another favorite around here is "Love you Forever." My aunt gave it to me for my first Mother's Day. I cry every time I read it to my babies.

I second Love You Forever...I recently found out that not many American's have heard of this gem of a book, though, which is very sad as it is a gem of a book!!
