I think one of the most beautiful parts of my job is making friends in the most unexpected ways. When I met Jessica, I realized we had quite a bit in common and her Facebook posts are some of my favorites. Kind, but honest. A thoughtful parent, but not trying to pretend she’s got it all together.
I thought asking her for some kind of “recommendation” might be nice. Books work, right? We had a good laugh when her reply was: “I can’t believe this but I don’t think I have read an entire book in at least six months. Two kids is more like go hard all day and then collapse on the couch and watch bad TV. Could I do something like 5 favorite kids’ books? Or is that kind of lame?”
Fair. I’ve been working on one book for about 3 months. ALMOST DONE.
Here’s Jessica’s two year old’s favorite books right now. Followed by pictures of their sweet little family. Enjoy!
