An Incredible Giveaway for all Moms, Soon-to-be-Moms, Aunts, Sisters and Grandmas! {What to Expect Books}

Let's face it.  Being a mom is hard work.  There are days of overwhelming joy and days of tears and frustration.  I have days when all I want to do is walk outside and not come back for a day.  But, fortunately those days seem to be few and far between, as when you see your children smile, hear their laugh and watch them reach milestones you've only heard about...it all makes sense.

My cup runneth over.

Your love for them is so strong, that those horrible-pull-you-hair-out-tantrum-screaming-days really do get forgotten.

Really, they do.

When Dan, a Partnership Director, with whatoexpect.com, approached me, as a mom, and as a blogger about reading their books and giving them away on my site, I immediately said YES.

Yes.  Yes. Yes.

What Dan didn't know is that I was a faithful reader of their blog and comment site back in 2008 and 2009 when we were trying to start our family.  Unfortunately we suffered two miscarriages before we had our little man in September of 2009.  It was heart wrenchingly difficult, but those message boards really helped me.

Just listening to other moms going through the same thing, made me feel like I wasn't the only one out there going through tough times.  So for that, thanks Dan!

After I received the books from them, I immediately dove into the book What to Expect: The Second Year (12-24 months).  As that is what category the little miss falls into and she is my monkey.  It never fails I turn around for one second and she is ON something.

Yesterday, it was the kitchen table.

The folks over at whattoexpect.com have graciously offered these 3 books to TWO of my readers.  Now, you're thinking - I'm not expecting - why would I need these books?
Wait!  I can guarantee that you are either a mom, sister, aunt, dad, grandma, brother or friend of someone who is expecting or has little ones in their house.  They would love these books.  So if you can't use them for yourself, they would make a great gift.
