We parents have the toughest (and best!) job on earth, and we deserve a little recognition now and then for everything we do to raise our kids. We would give ourselves that credit, but we are so busy with The Things We Do that we hardly remember what we did five minutes ago, let alone have time to reflect on the importance of our role as a whole. I wrote this book so I wouldn’t forget how essential our job is and how much we really do!
The Things We Do is a collection of 34 pages of doodled writings (17 sheets/34 sides, sized 8.5"x11") that documents what it takes to raise our little ones -- from the joys to the difficulties, from the mundane to the extraordinary, from the simple to the truly mind-boggling. The book wends its way loosely through childhood, starting with infancy and ending somewhere in the early tweens. (I'm told that full tweendom and the teen years will definitely need its own book! If I survive, I’ll write the sequel.)
And, please forgive me in advance for everything I've NOT included, for there is surely much that I missed, but if I didn't stop somewhere, it would never be finished! Just like parenting.
Every bit of this book was written, hand lettered, and doodled by me, then printed and bound with my own two hands. It is a humble production, but one made with heart.
This listing is for one book with a green front cover. The inside pages and back cover are assorted colors (greens, yellows, reds, oranges, and blues). I’ve printed it all on a thick, hearty, durable cardstock/cover weight paper so it has a nice thunk factor to it!
