The author of the Moon A Epub #225 critically acclaimed award–winning Weetzie Bat books offers a compelling celebration of the f. What I wanted Tori Amos's book to be really Mystical practical honest yet artful FLB is kind of like a less totally mean version of Tori anywayA reflection on the first year of motherhood of FLB She's still her silly self and it is interesting to realize that she totally just wants to be Weetzie Bat and that's not a bad thing She doesn't change that much in motherhood there is a lot of reflection on beauty and awkwardnesses and sad times and good times She talks about nursing a lot and how mother and child nourish each other in very basic and also profound terms Mostly I like it because she manages to sustain and integrate the joy and terror and even some of the mundane of motherhood for the whole book without getting technical or whiny about it I kind of want my mommy to read it
