Thanks to Shan, I've discovered another mama writer whose writing is just about as honest, funny, heart breaking and heart warming as Anne Lamott (Operating Instructions) and Catherine Newman (Waiting for Birdy): Kelly Corrigan. Her most recent book, Lift, is written as a letter to her two daughters. It's a short read (80 small pages) and very recommendable. There's an excerpt on her site, which also includes links to her blog posts (that include columns she's written for among other O, The Oprah Magazine) and videos. Among them, a video of Corrigan reading her essay "Transcending," which has received more than 4 million views to date. Here it is:

Corrigan also posted this Mother's day note on her site:
