Kim Black is self-publishing a book with Outskirts Press, and she wants your help deciding her upcoming book cover.
The hilarious, real-life antidote to holier-than-thou parenting philosophies!
Raising Wildflowers is for anyone who is currently raising kids and wondering if they’re doing it all wrong. It’s for those who wake up before dawn to make sure their kids get a healthy breakfast before school. It’s for the parent who struggles to help their child overcome unique challenges and cries in the bathroom while the bathwater is running to mask the sound. It’s for the one who sits up late at night, worried about whether their child will make it to college. It’s for those who work all day and come home at night to make a meal, do the laundry, and hand-sew that DANG sheep costume for the school play. And it’s for those who wonder if their kids have brushed their teeth this week or are wearing clean underwear.
This book is also for those second-guessing bringing children into this mixed-up, overpopulated world, those afraid to take that great big step: to create a human being and be dedicated to their care and feeding for—well, forever!
Kim Black shares how she and her husband survived child-rearing and even managed to hold on to their sanity—and that finish-line moment when they knew they had molded amazing little individuals into people they could be proud of. Kim hopes that by sharing her story, others will realize that they are not alone in this fantastic, crazy, terrifying journey that is parenthood.
