I loved this book! It brought back so many memories. One of my favorite essays is Kayla Perrin's The Importance of ABC's. It made me laugh so hard. I too have watched my breasts proceed through life with a mind of their own. As I am currently nursing my 5th child, I'm sure mine already resemble what she's dreading hers will look like at 54!

As the oldest child, with two younger brothers, I also appreciated Cara Lockwood's Superfudged. It brought back a flood of memories about broken toys, fights, laughter, tears, and locked doors! In fact, I'm going to share this essay with my son, who loves the Fudge books, and has 4 little sisters - even at the tender age of 10 he will understand. Incidentally, his request from Santa last year? An electronic alarm for his bedroom door.
