From Library Journal:

Readers who remember Maynard from her autobiography as an 18-year-old writer weary of life will enjoy these scenes revealing her obvious devotion to family and the future. Much of the book first appeared as newspaper columns, which means there is some repetition; however, that detracts little from the charm. Here is a testimony to the joys and sadness to be found in the most routine events of family life. The author is a keen observer and skilled at making the important connections between those routine events and the larger picture. This will have great appeal to young parents. Recommended. Hilma F. Cooper, Cheltenham Twp. Libs., Pa.

From Publishers Weekly:

"Syndicated columnist Maynard paints scenes from her 10-year marriage, centering on the care of three children," reported PW . Richly detailed and often humorous, the work "brings the reader into the intimacy of her rural New Hampshire home bustling with the exhausting but gratifying work of raising children."
