I just finished mommy blogger, Rebecca Woolf‘s book, Rockabye. Such a fantastic book for young, modern moms. I absolutely loved it. I didn’t want to read the last chapter because that would mean the book was over…that’s how much I enjoyed reading it.
The book cover’s Rebecca’s experience when she found herself unexpectedly pregnant and decided to keep the baby and marry her boyfriend. Her words are so honest, and true and the truth in her experience is so refreshing.
Even though Rebecca and I began our pregnancies completely differently, I was still able to relate and find common experiences in our journeys. For example, I know exactly how she felt to be the youngest woman in the waiting room at her OB. Or her chapter on finding mommy friends—yup I struggle with that too. Most inspiring though, were her chapters on maintaining a sense of self when her whole world seemed to revolve around this new little person.
Her conversational writing style is amazing. Each time I stopped reading I felt like we had just been having a conversation—so rare in the world of parenting books.
If you’re interested in reading a very raw account of another woman’s unique experience in the world of parenting, I highly recommend picking up Rockabye and following Rebecca on her blog, Girls Gone Child.
