In the fall I was given the opportunity to read Kuwana Haulsey's book "everything i needed to know i learned from my six-month-old". It is a book about a woman's journey through the first few months of motherhood, and one that most mothers will be able to relate to.
I found myself nodding my head in agreement at many parts of the book where she is talking about really listening to her baby to find out what he needed in that moment. Some of it brought me back to those moments of frustration and tears (both mine AND theirs) where I wish I could have had a different response.
The book is separated into 13 chapters (or 13 Life Lessons as she calls them) and brings you through some of her time in Africa, her marriage, the labour and birth of her son, and the first six months of his life.
