Cookies For Dinner by: Pam Johnson-Bennett and Kae Allen *Review and Giveaway*

Sunday, October 23, 2011

    If I could give a one word review of this book it would be, amazing!  I absolutely loved Cookies For Dinner!  As a mother of a three year old and one on the way, I can relate to many of the stories Kae and Pam tell about their children in this book.  It didn't feel so much as I was reading a book as it did that I was listening to friends share their parenting stories (good and bad, because we all know you can't have one without the other) with me.  It made me laugh, cry (I think mostly because I'm pregnant, and everything makes me cry lol), and reminiscence about my own stores of Audrey growing up.
    Here's a little bit about Cookies For Dinner from the back cover:  The perfect antidote to all those "how to" books on motherhood.  Here's the truth about the poop capacity of the average car seat and what to wear on Chicken Pox Island.  Pam and Kae are good friends but total opposites.  Pam is a worrying germophobe and Kae stands by the philosophy that everyone will eat a pound of dirt in their lifetime.  In this collection of humorous essays, Pam and Kae come clean on motherhood...
    Overall I found the honesty of both women to be delightfully refreshing!  I never wanted to put this book down.  And I truely speak from my heart when I say please, pretty please write another one!!  I would 100% recommend Cookies For Dinner to any mother or mom-to-be!  Cookies For Dinner by: Pam Johnson-Bennett and Kae Allen retails for $16.00 .  And now for the fun part, the giveaway details are below.

  1. I don't know if it's too crazy, but something I did for fun when my kids were too little to go outside too much in the winter was I'd bring big bowls of snow inside the house for them to play with! They loved it!
