You might be seeing a little bit about a certain book here and there in the blogisphere. It happens when 32 bloggers are brought together into a sensational ebook for a sensational cause. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to Project 18, a charity established by Cate Bolt, an amazing Australian mum and humanitarian, to help 12 orphaned Indonesian girls (and many others) get an education and the chance of a confident, hopeful life.
Cate shows us all that we can make a difference if we really, really want to. If we trust in the kindness of others and we are prepared to work very hard indeed. It is an honour to contribute to this book and in a very small way contribute to Cate's work. I thank my sister Al for including me, but mostly for coming up with this brilliant idea and caring enough to actually bring it to life as an ebook.
The book itself is absolutely wonderful. Every emotion you can think of is expressed somewhere in its pages and it is the most honest and heartfelt book about being a parent that I have ever read. My 'Smack!' post is in there... yes, my cranky pants method of parenting has gone global. Mixed emotions about that one, I can tell you!
Please visit the Things they didn't tell you about parenting website and buy this lovely little missive for only $4.95. Yep, just under a fiver. It's a true delight and I promise it will make you feel better about pretty much all of your parenting fails!
What do you wish you'd been told about parenting?

Oh and I had a wonderful time last night. I don't know what I was worried about... but then, that's generally the case, isn't it? Why we worry about the things we worry about is just another a mystery to worry about!
