Book Review: Sparkly Green Earrings by Melanie Shankle

Warning: Do not drink anything while reading this book. You'll be reading, and all of a sudden, in the middle of a paragraph, you'll bust out laughing.

I loved reading Sparkly Green Earrings. Melanie Shankle brings humor and nuggets of simple wisdom into the topic of motherhood. Her writing is honest and real. 

If she and I lived next door to one another, we'd be best friends (and so would our husbands). Oh how much to have in common! I think the only thing I didn't have in common with her is the number of kids we have. (She has one. I have four plus one.)

I highly recommend this memoir. By the time you finish reading, you'll be saying, "Oh. So I'm NOT the only one." And it'll be a book you'll pick up again and again just to remind yourself that.

Here's a peek at her back cover copy:

It's not easy, but someone has to do it (written in sparkly green cursive - classic!). Okay, Y'all. Here' the thing about motherhood. Before I had a child of my own, it was super easy. I had a lot of opinions about the right way to discipline, the way my child would dress, and how she would never throw a fit in public or embarrass me at the grocery store. I also believed the entire experience would be sweet and clean and beautiful, like one of those baby lotion commercials. (Bless my heart.)
