A decidedly less tear-inducing book about motherhood than my last post! This is still a cute nostalgic look at the past though, as a mother tells her daughter about how she was once a little girl too. The perspective is great. The daughter sees her mother only as a harried, bill-paying, responsible mom. But her mother tells her how she was once a girl who loved ballet tutus and red cowboy boots and making all sorts of noise and fun with her best friend.
