Small Talk, by Amy Julia Becker a Review
As a parent, I often learn many lessons from my children. I have learned to not sweat the small stuff. That eating dirt is not always a bad thing, and that jumping in mud puddles is a GREAT stress reliever.
We try as parents to help our children understand the big world around them, and they, in return, show us, how incredible our world is around us.
Small Talk, by Amy Julia Becker is a pretty great book. Amy in each chapter talks about her life with her children, from trying to explain down syndrome to her son, to learning about the fruits of the Spirit through her children.
Small Talk is an amazing story. I can sort of relate to Amy. I met Cody when he was a young toddler, so full of life. I did not know that I would become his mom. I did that when he was about to turn 6. He has taught me so much about patience, as he had lots of patience with me growing up. Not so much any more as his the typical 18 year still going through puberty. I think he is stuck in that stage.
I think Amy is an incredible author. Very glad that I got the chance to read this book. I give Small Talk, 5 stars.
