When Did I Get Like This?
http://www.amywilson.com

When Did I Get Like This? is the hilarious story of one mother’s struggle to shrug off the ridiculous standards of modern parenting, and remember how to enjoy her children. What kind of mother feeds her kids dinosaur chicken nuggets? Three times a week? What kind of mother lets handwashing after using the toilet slide, as long as it was just Number One? And then I wonder: when did I get like this? Why do I doubt my parenting abilities day after day? Why does motherhood, a quotidian job as old as Eve, have me teetering daily on the edge of insanity?

With each new stage of motherhood, I tell myself I will never again be suckered by the question, “Don’t you want what’s best for your children?” And yet, time after time, I am. Sometimes I am right to obsess. Other times, the record will show, it has been distinctly counterproductive. Over the last seven years of long days with little children, I have certainly had many moments of joy, calm, and peaceful reverie. This book is about the other moments.
