From the author of It Sucked and Then I Cried, creator of, and “Queen of the Mommy Bloggers” ( The New York Times)a collection of disarmingly honest, irreverent, and heartwarming letters that Heather wrote to her daughter, Leta, every month for the first seven years of her life.With more than 100,000 daily visitors, Heather’s website is the most popular autobiographical blog on the web. Now, Heather has collected the best of her wildly popular “Dear Leta” letterswhich she began writing to her daughter the day before she turned eight weeks oldchronicling the ups and downs of motherhood with an irresistible blend of overwhelming emotion and sleep-deprived insanity. This morning, I had to wake you up after three whole hours of sleeping soundly on your stomach, and when I rolled you over you had the cutest case of Binky Face, all mushed and covered in binky-shaped indentations. I wish they made Binky Face bread tins so that I could bake a loaf of banana bread in the shape of your sleeping profile, and then instead of trying to eat your chubby cheeks I could just eat the banana bread. That would probably be better for both of us. For the next seven years, Heather continued to write a letter to Leta each month, and she posted them on her blog. With honesty and humility, the letters reveal the everyday miracles as Leta grows and developsfrom the first time she holds a rattle, to her first steps&to her first curse word. The result is a hilarious and universally relatable account of motherhood: the intense love and despair, joy and frustration, and everything in between.
