Summary, etc.:
Welcome to essayist Kimberly Harrington's poetic and funny world of motherhood, womanhood, and humanhood--not necessarily in that order. It's a place of elation, exhaustion, and time whipping past at warp speed. Finally, it's a quiet space to consider the girl you were, the mother you are, and the woman you are always becoming.
