From the Inside Flap:

Catalog excerpt: I can almost picture you. You have a touch of peanut butter in your hair, a smudge of grease on your cheek, and more than one broken fingernail. You're tired and probably hungry. And the last time you did something for yourself was when you bought this book-eight months ago. Oh friend, I understand! I was a single mother for 12 years. My daughter is 13 years old, and I'm just now getting the peanut butter out of my own hair. It's been an incredible run, and I know that I still have some of the best years ahead of me. I can tell you this: my daughter did survive. She not only survived, she seemed to laugh pretty regularly, to create with abandon, and to learn most of the English language. As a mom, sometimes I did things well. Sometimes I fell flat on my face. I made good decisions and bad ones. And I learned. This book deals with many of the things I encountered as a single parent. But first, before you even begin, I have something to tell you. You are amazing! You are a hero! And you have my utmost respect.
