An appreciation for the one who consistently answers the questions: Whats for dinner? What should I wear? Can I go to a sleepover? Have you seen my keys? Where are my socks? Where are the kids immunization records? I dont feel well; what should I do? And many such questions that come up in the house every day! The one who arrives early at work to deal the boss or employees, sneak out at break to check on the babysitter, swing by the grocery on the way home, drops her bag and goes straight to the kitchen to make dinner, spends all Saturday supporting the kidss soccer game Mom! Its all about getting work done, at home as it is in the workplace. It can be managed as a team so mom doesnt have to carry a disproportional share of it.

From teaching us to tie our shoes to parallel park, from outfitting us for our first dance or our first day in the dorm room, our moms have been our chief counselors, cheerleaders, critics, chauffeurs, and chefs. For the Love of Mom pays homage to the special women who rocked us, raised us, championed us, challenged us, and—at times—exasperated us. Whether a woman becomes a mom by giving birth, or through the blessings of adoption or step-parenting, she will be moved, inspired, and entertained by these true stories that share both the monumental milestones and everyday moments of motherhood. Some stories are humorous, some heartfelt; others will help moms through the trying times, yet all underscore the devotion and dedication we admire most about mothers. While the experience of motherhood is different for every woman, one thing is universal: it's almost impossible to fathom the myriad of joys and triumphs encountered on the journey. For the Love of Mom celebrates moms and the uniquely important roles they play in our lives.

""Everyone should Barbarafy," raves The New York Times! A life-changing program for streamlining everything that's weighing you down--from over-stuffed closets to overwhelming social calendars--courtesy of the media's go-to organizing guru: Barbara Reich. Mothers can feel like life is one neverending loop. Just when one problem or responsibility is handled, another one trips us up. But help is on the way: Barbara Reich has all the strategies necessary for staying ahead of the curve--and she's wrapped them up into four easy steps that can be applied to any organizing project. The keys to Barbara's success are simplicity and consistency. Room by room, she takes readers through the most problematic areas in the home--from the tornado-struck play area to the over-stuffed basement or storage unit. Barbara shows readers how to approach organizing in manageable bites--many of which can be dealt with in two hours or less. With each organizing project, she teaches readers how to apply the four steps--1) purge, 2) design, 3) organize, and 4) maintain. And she also reveals how to solve organizing problems that may pop up in the future--from knowing when and how to keep financial papers to how to digitally organize the family's photographs. As the mother of twelve-year-old twins, Barbara offers tips for crazed moms as only a mother could. Combining the humor of a sympathetic friend, and the no-nonsense advice of a true type-A personality, Reich offers clever, appealing solutions that are genuinely achievable for everyone"--

Gay parenting is a topic on which almost everyone has an opinion but almost nobody has any facts. Here at last is a book based on a thorough review of the literature, as well as interviews with a pioneering group of men who in the 1980s chose to become fathers outside the boundaries of a heterosexual union—through foster care, adoption, and other kinship relationships. This book reveals how very natural and possible gay parenthood can be. What factors influence this decision? How do the experiences of gay dads compare to those of heterosexual men? How effectively do professional services such as support groups serve gay fathers and prospective gay fathers? What elements of the social climate are helpful—and hurtful? Gay Men Choosing Parenthood challenges a great deal of misinformation, showing how gay fathers from different backgrounds adapted, perceived, and constructed their options and their families.

In Fifty Acres and a Poodle, Jeanne Marie Laskas described how she survived her first hilariously tumultuous year at Sweetwater Farm. Now she returns with a funny, touching, and personal new memoir of what happens after your dream comes true... With a picture-postcard farm, a wonderful marriage, two mules, and a new refrigerator that spits crushed ice, what more can a girl ask for? That’s precisely the question Jeanne Marie asks herself as she and Alex settle into their new life at Sweetwater Farm. Two years ago they left the city behind for a life filled with the practical, often comical, lessons of living close to the land—and they never looked back. Yet when her strong-willed mom is hospitalized with a sudden and mysterious paralysis, Jeanne Marie rushes home to Philadelphia and her extended, sometimes chaotic, but always loving family. It’s there that she realizes what is still missing from her life: a family of her own. Now it’s a matter of bringing up the subject to her husband, Alex, fifteen years older and with adult children of his own, who seems terrified that she’s thinking of adopting a Chihuahua. With warmth, wisdom, and unfailing humor, Laskas tells the poignant story of her search for motherhood—and what happens when a woman risks happily-ever-after for something even more precious. As she tends to her own ailing mother, Jeanne Marie discovers that the challenges and rewards of living with Mother Nature pale in comparison to those awakened by the nature of mothering. The Exact Same Moon is filled with hilarious and heartwarming vignettes of people and a way of life you’ll be glad you met. From "borrowing" sheep to help mow the lawn and sitting in on the racy hay jokes at the Agway Equine Clinic, to befriending the notorious old lady who holds the water rights to their future pond, corrupting the neighbors with satellite TV, and learning the fine art of going a-calling, Laskas proves once again that laughter, love, and wisdom are truly homegrown.
