Sparkly Green Earrings
This is the type of insight Melanie Shankle offers in this quirky memoir of motherhood.
Written in the familiar, stream-of-consciousness style of her blog, Big Mama, Sparkly Green Earrings is a heartwarming and hilarious look at motherhood from someone who is still trying to figure it all out. Filled with personal stories--from the decision to become a mother to the heartbreak of miscarriage and ultimately, to the joy of raising a baby and living to tell about it--Sparkly Green Earrings will make you feel like you're sitting across the table from your best friend. A must-read for anyone who's ever had a child or even thought about it.
It's not easy, but someone has to do it.Okay. Y'all. Here's the thing about motherhood. Before I had a child of my own, it was super easy. I had a lot of opinions about the right way to discipline, the way my child would dress, and how she would never throw a fit in public or embarrass me at the grocery store. I also believed the entire experience would be sweet and clean and beautiful, like one of those baby lotion commercials. (Bless my heart.)Then I had Caroline. And you know what? Real motherhood is different. It's messier. It's complicated. And it is . . . So. Much. Better. It breaks your heart and makes you laugh harder than you ever could have imagined. It's a little frightening. A lot gut wrenching. And quite possibly the most important thing you will ever do. That's what this book is about--my story about those fleeting moments that get swallowed up in the daily routine of car pools and soccer practice but come together in an indescribable way to make you a mama. If you're looking for an expert on the subject of motherhood, then I suggest you put this book down immediately. But if you just need to know you're not the only person who has debated running away to a five-star hotel after spending hours "helping" your child with a school project, this is for you. (You are my people.) If nothing else, I hope it will keep you warm at night knowing someone else shares your brand of crazy. Melanie (aka Big Mama)
