Sparkly Green Earrings : Catching the Light at Every Turn (Paperback) (Melanie Shankle)
About this item
“There is really no better indicator you’re a mother than acquiring the ability to catch throw-up in a plastic bag, disinfect your hands, and immediately ask your friend to pass the beef jerky as you put on another Taylor Swift song and act as if nothing has happened.”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.
Recounts the author's experiences with motherhood after the birth of her first daughter, describing the balance of joy and stress that comes with becoming a mother.
